We are always open to new translators, but you may want to read the following FAQ before applying.


Can I translate Japanese or Chinese novels?
Absolutely; we need more Japanese and Chinese translators on our team!

What about Korean?
Unfortunately, we do not accept Korean translators.

Do I need experience?
No; although we do require all applicants to pass a translating test, you do not need any experience in translating itself. After all, practice makes perfect and all translators had to start from somewhere. However, we do ask that you have decent skill in English.

Will I be required to keep a consistent schedule?
No; you can update whenever you want, but you will be removed from Fans Translations if you remain inactive (not updating) for more than two months. If you need to be away for two months or so due to personal reasons, just let us know beforehand.

Will I be paid?
Yes; you earn ad revenue calculated based on the amount of page views you generated on your translations. However, Fans Translations is a hobbyist group, so if you’re planning to translate for the monetary benefits, this is not the group for you.

How will I be paid?
Please create a Paypal account.

How do I apply?
Fill out the TRANSLATOR APPLICATION FORM right here.

When will I know if I passed or not?
We will message you within 48 hours on Discord if you pass. If you failed, you will not receive a message.


Note: We are currently not looking for editors.
