Hello, everyone. I'm marsraven.
I am interested in translation work. I am a native speaker of English who has studied Japanese extensively in college and independently for the past eight years. I have never done professional or even informal translation work, but I am primarily interested in improving my own Japanese skills, making new friends, and having fun in the process. For those of you familiar with JLPT levels, I think I am approximately N3. Game translation was suggested to me by one of my video game-playing friends who said that hackers often are in need of translation help.
Although I have played RPGs occasionally in the past (Phantasy Star and Final Fantasy come to mind), I went to the "Help Wanted" section and discovered that I don't know anything if at all about the games being requested. As such, I'm hesitant to contact team leaders knowing nothing about these games, so I decided to introduce myself here instead. I apologize if this is frank or forward.
I don't really know anything about the technical aspects of ROM hacking, but I would like to help if I possibly can. If someone could help point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you so much for your kind help,
