Help to put Naor in new languages!

Journal Entry: Sun May 8, 2016, 4:20 AM


Hey guys! I'm looking for people to translate my comic for me into multiple languages.

I would prefer people who speak the new language as native/bilingual at least. I want for now the main languages, if you know any, please tell me! We can work out a deal where you can get art for  translations or maybe money if you only want that. :'D

I need those who translate to use legit art software. You need to be able to open PSD/Photoshop files and use layers. Things like Sai/Gimp/Photoshop/Krita/etc.


DO NOT USE MS PAINT or WORD. You also need to be able to use a font/typeface similar to mine, or the same one if at all possible. I'll give all that information once I send you the pages. I won't just throw them at you and let you flail around. XD I want the pages as consistent as possible, so I'll help you all out.



Here is what I can pay you:

1. Artwork: I can do one of these per chapter: Kainat (T) - Inks by Ahkward

2. 5$ per page (not all pages have text)
3. Credit: I can offer you to save up and ask for a larger commission later. For example, if you get 45$ per chapter and you want a commission that cost 90$, you can "save up" for two months, and instead of me paying you, after those two months pass/I get those two chapters, I will draw you that picture that is 90$. This is a good option if you don't have a lot of money, but want to commission me for something nice.





Languages I have translators for:
 
Croatian: ImagineCorgis = Wants no payment / comic book :heart: LOVE YOU!!
Dutch: BasstheDragon = Not Paid 45/45$
Finnish: jasminjuu  = PAID 45/45$
French: Millahism = Art (No character yet) + Comic Books
German: Stormcloud16 = PAID 45/45$
Greek: MariannaNight = Not Paid 0/45$
Italian: Ailithir= PAID 20/20$ + Art (No character yet)
Mandarin: LuckyKitzy = PAID 20/20$  + ? (No character yet)
Polish: crazekilla99 = Paid 0/45 for Prologue
Russian: Napoisk = ? = ?
Spanish (Mexico): Jenova-Cells = Pay with Art (Rin Rensuh from Naor)
Turkish: Unistonen = PAID 15/15$ + Art30$ (Toothless from HTTYD)


These languages I'm still looking for

Japanese
Korean




If you speak another language not listed here and want to help, Please tell me! I want as many as possible. I will be posting these to dA and Tapastic. I want as many people as possible to be able to read it, so I want more than one language. :'D

Please comment or note. Remember, I want native or bilingual. I want translations as "natural" as possible!

Thank you so much for your help if you decide to offer it. I'll make it worth your while in money or art. ouo Also, I will add your name to title pages to say you translated for me as credit and on deviation page. I will feature you on my profile as well so people will know you are awesome! :la:

Have a good day/night!

Beautiful idea! It'd be awesome to see your comic in all these languages! :la:
I can happily help with Turkish! I'm a native speaker, with C1 level English :)
I can take 4-6 dollars a page, for all Prologue and next chapters to come :aww:

I'm doing 5$ a page right now, though with 11 languages already, I'm getting close to being unable to afford any more. Is it possible you'd be willing to save up what I would be paying you for a commission or take art instead (now or later kinda like a tab at a bar). Or possibly could I send you  a copy of the book as payment this time?

It's about 250$ a month right now to translate , it'll be about 275 adding you. So if there is any you could take a mix of money and book or art, I would be greateful. Other months, I could pay you in full in money, but this particular month is a bit harder.

Of course, that's fine! 
How about 15 dollars+a commission per chapter, full time? (I'd like to keep it stable for avoiding confusion)

Yeah that'd be fine! Thank you so much. Once I get home I'll send the link to the pages for chapter one. What is your PayPal for the 15.

I would love to help! You really got me intrigued.
Tho' I do have to admit that the audience for Croatian would be rather small probably.
That being said, I am more than willing to do it for free! I do not ask for anything in return. I can translate a page/pages for you every Friday or the weekend if thats alright. c:

Absolutely! 
I will be spending a month in America during the summer tho' so that would be the time I wouldnt be able to translate. Otherwise I would be able to do it every week or however often you need it~

:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner May 9, 2016  Professional Traditional Artist
I would be asking for a page a week. However if you are gonna be on vacation, that's totally understandable. I'll be able to let readers know that my translator is unavailable and the pages will be late and to read the other versions until then if possible. XD

Maybe instead of having individuals translate, you have language teams. Like, you have three people for French with one leader. And they all work in Google Docs, Dropbox, or something together. That way, if one of them gets busy, you have backups.

While I think that's an excellent idea, I have three jobs (90+hours a week) including the comic. I don't really have the time to manage that many teams. Maybe once my own workload dies down a bit. But yes, that's a very good idea, thank you!

Decided to ask again, is the translation to polish going well?
Reply
:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2016  Professional Traditional Artist
I cut polish since I never heard back from my translator after sending him the images. So if you want it, that's fine. However I can only offer art as payment. I can't offer money right now with my current finances. (sorry for taking so long, I've been kinda hit or miss on dA lately due to my burnout. Sorry for the wait!)

I could help with translating for Mandarin Chinese! I'm a native speaker of the language and I'm able to use Photoshop to do the editing. ^^

If your budget is tight, I'll be willing to accept a mix of art and money. 0w0

Ah sweet! That would be great. Aha yeah, my budget is pretty tight right now. I'm moving to India soon, so I'm trying to save my money as best I can, but I don't want to be rude as ask for people to translate for free. XD So I'm offering money and art. I could do 20$ and then 25$ worth of art? ouo

I understand, moving to another country must be pretty stressful when it comes to finances. >.<

I'll need to know how the art would look like, and how much art you'll be offering for each page/chapter first! ovo

:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner May 8, 2016  Professional Traditional Artist
The artwork would look like this for just a drawing and no money: Digital inks + BG = 2500x2500 px
Kainat (T) - Inks by Ahkward

If you want to get paid 20$ then the rest is art, I will give you art like this. Traditional inks with no BG = 1500x2100 px
Ahrohq - Lines by Ahkward   Ozryel Inks by Ahkward


Each of these is equal to the money amount per chapter. This way it is all fair, and just depends on what you choose/want.

Alright, I think we could do the $20 and art mix then! I should be able to start translating this Wednesday, so you can send me the files by then. ^^

May I also know the type of font you're using? Just in case I need to go searching for a matching font.

Ahkward Featured By Owner May 8, 2016  Professional Traditional Artist
I'll for sure have those to you by Wednesday. Thanks for helping so much! When you figure out what you want me to draw, let me know. ouo I need to  go run some errands, so I'll be AFK for a bit.

The font is segoe print, with the caps lock ON.

I would be super happy to help you with French c: I always wanted to try translating things. French is my mother tongue, I'm from Switzerland (which have 4 national languages btw haha)
I use photoshop and Clip Studio paint.
I don't really want to ask you your hard earned money, I would feel bad ;_; Having your awesome drawings would be really sweet, but I don't need one per chapter.
I'm in my third university year right now and things are hectic, but I'm looking for something to free my mind from the overload of work I have, and there is not so much text in the first pages I saw so it won't take me ages either !

:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner May 8, 2016  Professional Traditional Artist
Aha, well if you want I can do a drawing for you and when you want another one, let me know. lol

French is a common language, so it's important that I have it. I'd appreciate your help wit it. XD I would do 1 page a week normally (after we get caught up) so there would never be a crazy amount of text. XD

I will take your name down and then send you the original pages when I get them all together. Thank you! Likely it'll be later tonight or tomorrow.

I'm Italian and interested :)
I use clip studio paint but am proficient in PS as well since I use it for school. Just tell me the font's name.

As for the payment I'd really need money but I'm fine with art as well since I'm quite the fan. We can find an easy compromise I think =w=

:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner May 8, 2016  Professional Traditional Artist
Ah wonderful! :dummy: Clip Studio I think opens PS files. You just need to be able to use layers and add text without making the layers/image flat. I'll give the name of all the flat, plus the original images without text later today. I'm still getting everything together. XD My files are on external drive, so I have to transfer them over to my computer. Takes forever. lol

Mh, well I'm doing art, so I'm happy to draw what you want. We could possibly do half and half? Maybe some money and a sketch maybe?

:iconailithir:
Ailithir Featured By Owner May 8, 2016  Student General Artist
Yep works with PS as well, the only con is that if I open a PSD file with text layer in CSP it will rasterize it I think. If you need an editable text layer I can just put PS back on the pc.

Sure take your time xD

Oh! That'd be awesome **
Reply
:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner May 8, 2016  Professional Traditional Artist
Yes, I would prefer an editable text layer if possible, thanks. ouo I can make sure no text layer exists when I send it so that you add it and it doesn't mess with the layers.

What is your email for paypal and what do you want me to draw?

I forgot to ask whether there are days you'd like the best to get the translated pages. It doesn't change much to me but it'd help me set my schedule :)

Well once I get caught up, I'll be post pages on friday. So I'll likely post the english on friday and then I'll be sending out the page to all my translators, so I'd like to have it back thursday of the next week (the next page would be on friday). I feel a week is enough time to translate a single page? I'm not really gonna be super picky about it, as long as it's back within a reasonable time frame.

With the prologue since those pages are already done, do them at your own pace as fast as you are comfy with. I want accurate translations, and so if you need to message me about something, I don't want you to feel rushed. XD I'm happy to take questions for clarifications to have it accurate. ouo

I'll get that payment to you later. I have some errands to run first. Thank you so much and take your time thinking about the sketch.

For the payment take your time, I'm in no rush and actually would rather see how well I manage before putting moneys in the equation. :)

It's ok even if a text layer does exist, it's just gonna become a fixed layer, it wouldn't bother me I guess. 
I tried PS to CSP before but never tried the other way around, so tomorrow I'll check with the school's computer to see if there are other things I should keep in mind. I asked a friend for PS anyway so it's all good :)

My paypal address is blazingsoul1595[at]gmail[dot]com (which is also my e-mail), as for the sketch I still gotta think about it since it's rather sudden.
