Join Us! | How We Do

September 1, 2009

i wanted to take some time to reach out & invite you to join our team & to also explain the routine as to how we operate.

JOIN US!

VIPtranslators is always open to new staff members. if you are interested:

  • send admin (melly or jeska; see contact page) a sample of your work
  • how much time you can dedicate to our site

WE ARE LOOKING FOR:

  • translators for news articles  & lyrics
  • graphic artists to make buttons, affiliate banners, site banners, etc.

special instructions for translator positions:

  • include the original work, along with your english translation.
    – the better your grammar/word choice, the more likely we will choose you.
  • include extra information like
    – how fluent you are in the language you are translating
    – where you’re from, etc.

we look forward to accepting applicants as we have a lot of projects in mind, & we can only accomplish them with the help of a great staff =]

HOW WE OPERATE

now i’m gonna explain the routine we go through in publishing translations.

  • the staff are fluent in their language & english & do a superb job at translating; however short-staffed we are & although we don’t put out translations quickly & in great numbers, when we publish, the translation is final.
  • we have a motto & we stick with it. we bring quality translations. that means we spend a great deal of time making sure everything is as correct as it can be before we make them public.
  • when staff finish a translation of lyrics or articles, they go through a draft process & i give it a look-over before i publish it to assure that everything sounds good.
  • news articles usually get published by the authors themselves. however, the lyrics undergo a more thorough editing process before they get published b/c many of you tend to share them elsewhere.
    – this is why we don’t get lyrics done as fast as you would like.
  • when we publish lyrics, we make sure they are accurate in source, & provide the romanization as well as the translation & the original hangul lyrics.
    – sometimes the korean lyrics do not match up & that has to go through editing as well.
  • once the translations are done, they are carefully archived into our master lists of lyrics or news articles. there, you will find all the translations we have done since our opening.

i hope this explains our operations & why it’s important to have quality over quantity. it’s what we pride ourselves for & what makes us a great team.

& hopefully, this motivates you to join us as well as we’re looking to do many things!

Co-Sponsored Project: ‘VIP Video Messages to BIG BANG’ Final Cuts & Follow-Ups

December 1, 2008



(PROJECT DETAILS CLICK HERE)

(POST TAKEN FROM BBFANSITE)

We have narrowed our list down & this is our final cut is down to 31 applicants! (you can double check for your name under the cut)

to those 31 lucky VIPz, you will receive an email from me within the next 24 hours containing the next details.

THE DEADLINE TO REPLY TO MY EMAIL IS FRIDAY, DECEMBER 5th, 2008. NO EXCEPTIONS. if you do not reply to my email, you cannot be a part of this project.

another follow-up email will be sent to confirm your continuation to record your video.
YOUR VIDEO DEADLINE IS DUE BY SUNDAY, DECEMBER 14th, 2008. NO EXCEPTIONS. if your video is not emailed to me by this date, your video will not be edited into the project. (details will be under the cut on how you can get your video file to me)

you need to reply to me to confirm your message as well as answer the questions i have posed to you.
some of the details i post here will be on the email as well:

  • your fansite SN has no part in the video project, just for our records.
  • we do need your real, full name so BB knows your name & see where all their fans come from
  • we also need to know where you’re from exactly (the city, state, country).
  • you need to confirm your message as we have it written in the email space. that is exactly what we will be translating, & saying anything more or less will do you no good b/c bb will most likely not understand it.
  • your video needs to be within a minute. exceptions can be made, but if we feel your video is too long, your video will not be used in the project (those w/ the exceptions, i have noted in the email).
  • the video should be recorded in a presentable manner. i mean that what comes out on video should be appropriate. your video represents yourself & our fansite. anything profane or too spazzy will not be included in our project. bb deals w/ fangirls everyday & we want them to be amazed by our video.
  • some of your messages have been edited slightly to accomodate the translating. be lucky, otherwise your application would not have made it.
  • ANY QUESTIONS, POST A COMMENT HERE, as i will check on this post daily.

check under the cut to see if you made the list, & more details on how to send me your video….

congrats to those who made it! we’re looking forward to making this project for you all to enjoy. we will be designing a very nice cd cover & the dvd will go

to bb, & if we’re lucky straight into their hands. we will upload the video & show you the final project once it’s done! (we hope to have it done by JANUARY)
work hard on it & keep it clean!
