Don’t worry. I won’t say anything like dropping anything or things like that. I will still continue translating everything.
To make things short:
I actually planned to catch up to the author, but with my speed and time I have for translating I won’t be able to do so. I’m having less and less time to translate. It will be pretty much impossible to do so alone. To be honest I underestimated the length of one chapter. Releasing one Arifureta chapter per week is pretty much hard in itself with the time I have on my hands. (Aka. stupid university). However, if I had more hands it would be somehow manageable.
For that reason I’m looking for somebody who can translate a bit. I don’t mind if you are completely new to translating – I myself am pretty new. If you can’t speak japanese very well, don’t worry I’ll help out. There are many programs that can help out and if I look over it, I could fix parts that you aren’t able to translate. People who only want to try it out are also welcome. That would speed up the translation a lot. Also, if somebody wants to help out a an editor, I wouldn’t say no. You only need some basic knowledge of japanese, even self-learned from anime is enough. Just contact me. Either leave a message here, contact me on steam (my profile is on the “About me & this blog”-page) or leave some kind of contact information (Skype, email or something else) so that I can contact you somehow. After that I’ll give you a chapter to translate and if I’m satisfied with the translation you can translate regularly. Remember: This is only a fan-translation. Nothing professional.
As for the chapters I have released till now, I’ll go over them and fix major mistakes on the weekend as I have almost no time today and almost no time tomorrow. I get up early and get back late so I don’t really have the power to read and check spelling/grammar mistakes. And doing so at the university is pretty hard as almost every break something comes up. Many people pointed out some stupid mistakes I made and I am grateful for that. Hope you guys/girls continue to do so.
With that out of the way, I wish you a happy week. See ya next time~
