  1. great job i love the manga so far it seems intresting am assuming that there are more chapters .will the realesses be weekly or random

    1. Right now, it’s going to be random while we catch up to the manga for Konjiki no Moji Tsukai, but after that, it’ll be monthly. The manga is serialized in a monthly manga in Japan.

  2. Quick questions!
    1. How many raw chapters of Word Master are out so far?
    2. If I want to join the scanalation group for a position, is past experience required?

    1. Right now, there are currently four chapters of Word Master out.

      Past experience isn’t required, per se, it’s more of the skills required of the roles.
      For example, a Proofreader would require native level English and a good grasp on the grammatical rules and idiomatic expressions. A Typesetter would need a decent understanding of Photoshop and be able to choose the proper fonts. Cleaners and Redrawers also need a good understanding of Photoshop, and a Redrawer would need more graphic art ability than a Cleaner. A Translator would need to have a good grasp of the language he is translating from, be it Japanese or Chinese, and a decent amount of knowledge in English so that he could communicate with the Proofreader.

      Cleaners, Redrawers, and Typesetters can be taught, and I could send tutorials over, but Proofreaders and Translators cannot be taught. At best, for a Proofreader, I could give a few tips, but not enough to teach everything that must be known for the job.
