Commissions

Commissions Status: OPEN!

Translation Commissions

I charge translation commissions according to how many hours I take to do the translation. When you ask me for a certain translation, I will give you an estimate on how long I will take to finish it.  I will take translations for doujins/mangas but I will not typeset and clean for you as I don’t really know how to do those. Examples of my work can be found on my translation tag on Tumblr. My rate as of current is SGD $9/hr. For example, song lyrics can be about $12, and a 10 minute drama cd track could go up to about $50. For example, a short doujin can take me about $20 or so. I will not take anything R-18 as I’m uncomfortable with the contents. Also, please provide me with the things you want translated as well. Last point is that I really love taking stuff which people don’t want to translate.

  • What you want me to translate
  • Files for what you want me to translate/places to get them
  • Notes; whether you want the commission to be public or private. If your commission is public, you can choose if you’d like it on my Tumblr Writing blog or this blog.

These guidelines above are roughly what to send me if you’d like to commission a translation. Pricing is definitely negotiable. At the same time, if you need to translation in less than 48 hours, there will be an extra $10 charge. Sometimes I won’t be able to finish it in that short of a time, so I will inform you then. I may reject some commission if I find myself being uncomfortable in doing them.

Writing Commisions

For writing, I can write what you want, and that includes OC fiction, AUs, and others. For fiction, you need to tell me what you want to happen in the piece, as well as giving some descriptions of what you want to happen inside it. Samples of my work can be found on my writing blog, ffnet & AO3. Fanfictions are dependent on what am I familiar with, so please don’t expect to write some hetalia fic or something that’s kinda impossible for me. That’s why, please check in with me as to what I can write, and what I can’t.

  • 100-500 words: $5
  • 501-1000 words: $8
  • 1001-1500 words: $12
  • 1501- 2000 words: $16
  • 2000+ words: $17< $1 per 100 words

Pricing is negotiable. I tend to write more that what usually a person would request of me to do so, but you don’t have to pay extra even if I write an extra 100 words, but I’ll try to keep within the range that you have given me. Heres the form for commissioning writing.

  • Fandom of what you want me to write
  • Amount of words
  • Characters/ship that you want me to write about
  • Details of what you want to happen in the piece of fiction. Basically, a setting, the tense you want me to write in, be specific as possible. This is important for oc fics, so please send as much details as possible if you can.
  • Whether you want it to be public or private. If its private, I wont post it anywhere, and only send it to you. If it’s public, I’ll put it on my writing blog and link it to you as the commissioner.

I can reject a request whenever I want, and please don’t pester me for anything since I’m a student. I’m not comfortable with writing smut yet, so I will probably not take any requests unless it’s really light.

I always try my best to get things done quickly, as this also acts as a motivator to get all the things in my daily life done quickly as well. So please, don’t pester me. If you’re interested, you can contact me at ruby1978@live.com.sg, and I’ll give you a reply. I try to answer everything within a week.

Also, you’ll have to send me the payment through Paypal, or bank transfer if you happen to be in Singapore, before starting on the commission. I will send you my paypal email or bank acc number after we’ve confirmed the details through email. However, I do not accept cancellation unless the piece of work has not started. I have 3 slots for translation and 2 slots for writing. I accept payments in SGD only.

Finally, please do not claim any works of mine as yours. You can do whatever you want with them as long you are not profiting off them. Please credit me if you do want to use them for gameplay videos for game script translations.
