    Are you still recruiting? If so, how long would it take to receive a response after taking the test

    MTL isn't preferred except for exceptional cases where you're either an experienced MTLer or have basic Chinese knowledge to fill in the gaps that MTL cannot account for. If you believe that you will be able to accomplish what other translators can with MTL, you're welcomed to take a short test with us and we'll judge you fairly based on the accuracy of it :blobsmilehappy:

    I am a non-native English speaker and these days I am spending a decent amount of time on novels, so I would like to try something as an experience. No salary requirements as of now. My only concern is that I might need a bit of buffering time to settle in as I haven't done it in the past. Do you think I'll be able to qualify for the test?

    Hello, you are welcome to learn on the job with us. Not quite sure what you mean by buffering time, but if you're unsure as to how to start immediately, we have a couple of guidelines in place to help you get started and positions such as co-editor is also available so you can work alongside other editors. You are welcomed to take the test and you can also let us know if you have any concerns then.^_^
