Hello. I know there aren't any seperate forums for the different dialects of Chinese-there's only a group of forums for Chinese. I've asked questions requesting tranlsations for Hakka, Cantonese and Mandarin for specific terms. Are there any tranlsators here who work with Taiwanese Chinese? May I post questions in the Chinese forums asking for Taiwanese translations? Please let me know.

Hi Mavericker,

You can ask individual terms in Kudoz. If you have several terms, you might consider posting a job in the Jobs area of the site.

Dear Mavericker,
If it was just one or two terms I think that would be OK but, judging from your past requests in the forums that isn't the case:

Seems to me you've been asking for a lot of "free" help in both the forums and on Kudoz to get your comic book translated.

I think it's time to bite the bullet, dust off your wallet and pay to get the job done:) Don't you want your comic book to appear professional and be accurately translated?

If you're looking for any level of quality then that always costs, so sooner or later you're gonna have to be prepared to pay for it.

Post your job Dec 11, 2006

If you are an aspiring comic book writer "paying your dues", but still need translations, you might try posting a pro bono job. It will give aspiring translators a chance to do something substanstive (and fun), while you are likely to get translations vastly superior to what you would get using your current method.
