    I'm looking for an editor (again!).
    Description:
    • CN fantasy novel.
    • 2 chapters / week pace.
    • The editor(s) will deal with around 6,000 words every week.
    Requirement:
    1. Proficient in English with a decent grasp of formal vocabulary.
    2. Good at English grammar and collocation, able to detect errors and give corrections.
    3. (optional) Familiar with (or at least have a basic knowledge of) classical and biblical texts.
    ------------

    UPDATE

    Pay: You can get all the ad rev the chapters earn (the part that the site offers to me ofc) + sponsor, donation, etc.. But I have to say it first that there's not much of it.

    -------------
    UPDATE 2
    If you are interested please pm me.

    I've never seen any benefits on these recruitment ads, so I'd be surprised if this one had something.

    I don't mind if I have free time, but now I don't even have time for my own stuff, let alone editing someone else's translation.

    Everyone one of these I see I say the same thing.

    Give you release rate (you did this)

    Are they given time to edit. In other words do you have a backlog of chapters or do you expect people to edit immediately once you send them the chapter. (Sorta did?)

    Are you willing to pay. If so state as much. Don't need to state the pay but atleast say it is on the table. (Did not do)

    So 1.5/3 you hit. Alot better than most though the one you missed was the most important. Pay or equivalent return. So many people won't answer to this just because you didn't mention anything about pay or some sort of benefit.

    You'll get way more people willing to work for benefits than those who do for nothing.

    I can't promise you anything. I translate for free. You can take all the ad rev and patreon if there's any. But I admit there's not much. It's not a popular novel.

    If the request is still valid, I'd be curious to discuss the details.
