So recently I’ve been thinking more and more about ways that I can continue to translate at a decently high pace, meet requests, and also expand into more consistently offering romaji/karaoke lyrics despite how busy work and others things have become. While the actual translation of songs and such doesn’t take as much time nowadays thanks to my improving language abilities, the actual process of timing/typesetting (especially cool-looking subtitles) and romanization of lyrics eats up a lot of time that I really wish I could use for doing more productive things in the Vocaloid community. I am not stopping what I am doing by any means but I just wanted to put out a call for more people who might be interested in working together with me to help make more videos and songs available to the community. I already have one person who I collaborate with on a fairly regular basis in the wonderful Olivki and I would really like to find a few more. Collaborating with me doesn’t come with deadlines or demands and I am literally willing to accept whatever little bit of help you can provide. To give specifics:
-I’d like more people to volunteer to help with typesetting and subtitles for songs. (Assuming that your tastes aren’t crazy different than mine, I’ll of course be willing to prioritize your requests and stuff). Even if it’s just contacting me from time to time to request a translation while offering to sub it for me, I’ll definitely give it some serious thought.
-I’d also like some people to help romanize the songs I translate so everyone can have the karaoke/romaji lyrics in a reasonable amount of time. For this purpose I don’t even need you to give your work to me to upload. You can upload it on your own blog or social media space and just provide me the info so that I can spread it to Vocaloid fans via my own networks and video uploads.
I hope that I can find a few people willing to help from time to time, so please feel free to contact me via my email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by leaving a comment on any of my other social media locations. I look forward to working with you.
