                                                            4. Release News Reporter
                                                            There’s just so much to do; join us in translating the world! We’re looking for J>E translators who have a strong literary flair and understand the unique challenges of song translation. In addition to native-level English, you should have a high level of grammatical comprehension in Japanese, capable of identifying full phrases/ideas and their correct meaning. If you have a strong understanding of nuance in Japanese and a solid literary style, we would love to hear from you! ☆ For reference, you should be confident that your comprehension is at least equivalent to JLPT N1 (no certification necessary) ☆ ☆ You should be receptive to constructive criticism from your peers ☆ ☆ You should be actively available to submit at least two translations per week (ideally much more) ☆ {Please be aware that we are not currently a commercial project; we donate our time out of love and dedication.} The application process is simple! Please send us two song translations: one from an artist you like, and one from an artist you really dislike. Join us in our goal to raise the level of art, quality, and accuracy applied to Japanese lyric translation!
                                                            Do you make exceptional lyric translations in your native language from Japanese or English? We think it’d be nice to make LN as international as possible! We require that you have very high confidence in your writing ability + a fluent understanding of either Japanese or English. Please submit two translations (of songs posted on LN): one from an artist you like, one from an artist you dislike. Our staff will take a look and judge your style + grasp of nuance in the source language. Also, please tell us a little about yourself, your background in the languages you know, and your availability. Please note that we expect you to have musical interests beyond your favorite shows, as well as submitting translations regularly (at least one song per week). {Please be aware that we are not currently a commercial project; we donate our time out of love and dedication.}
                                                            日本語か英語の歌詞を自分の母国語(英語以外)に翻訳することに興味を持っていますか?リリカルナンセンスを出来るだけ国際的なサイトにしたいですから、応募してください!しかし、私達は全ての言語の翻訳をチェックすることが不可能ですので、自分の翻訳能力に自信を持たない人はご遠慮ください。もう既にこのサイトにある言語の翻訳をしたい人は「自分の大好きな歌」と「自分の大嫌いな歌」の翻訳を一つずつメールで提出してください。それでこちらのスタッフがその翻訳をチェックして応募者のニュアンスのセンスを確認します。このサイトにはまだ載っていない言語の翻訳をしたい人はこちらに気軽に連絡してください!(このサイトにとって)応募者の経験や興味のある範囲を理解した上で大丈夫です!一緒に世界の翻訳しましょう!
                                                            LN needs some help on the admin side of things! We’re looking for someone to help with creating/managing page content found on the site. If you also have an interest in transliterating from Japanese–>Romaji, that would be even better! The more time our translators can spend translating, the further we can grow, so come join us in building a more complete resource! (This is also a great activity to do while listening to music, if you’re behind in your library like I am.) ヽ(^。^)ノ
                                                            Looking for a good excuse to stay on top of new music that is coming out? We’re looking to add a reporting element to LN, featuring news on upcoming releases! You’ll be letting the world know about the best of what’s to come for j-rock, j-pop, and anime music! We’re also interested in developing a more static resource (calendar, etc.) to help everyone keep track of the music they love. A large audience awaits your reporting, so come help us plan the future!
