Well, damn… me and my big mouth… I saw a Japanese translator looking for a paid job, so I approached him with only the intention to ask around, but now it looks like the talk is proceeding towards actually hiring him for the job. What do you guys think I should do? Think of this as an investment and hire him to translate a Japanese Gender Bender series at the rate of 1 chapter per week?
I’m poor so I can only afford 4-5 chapters per month at the rate he’s asking (which is a very reasonable rate, mind you). And this investment comes directly from my own pocket with no support from Patreons (yet). I plan to slowly gather support from the Patreon so I can pay off the translations and turn this investment into a profit. But of course, just like with all my other novels, the more patrons I can gather, the more chapters I can commission from the translator.
To anyone that supports this plan, feel free to suggest a Japanese Gender Bender novel you’d like to be picked up, but of course, if you can support this project on Patreon (not available yet), it would be all the better.
P.S. To Kreyton, if I decide to go ahead with this plan, I can add Yotogi no Kuni no Gekkouhime to the lists of possible translations along with a few others. What I’m planning for now is to have the translator translates the synopsis of a few Gender Bender series and have the Patrons vote for which one to pick up.
