Welp, looks like I’m going to be working on scanlation projects other than Ruin Explorers. I’ve got some raw material just waiting to get worked on. However, please note that I am absolutely not a great translator. Raw acquisition, scanning, and cleaning are all in my toolbox, and I enjoy the work. But I also have a full-time job and interests outside of scanlating.
Based on my current experience, it’ll take me an afternoon to debind and scan a single volume, 2-3 days to clean roughly 30 pages, and translate 2-3 pages per day (more on a weekend). So, given a disciplined work ethic, I can probably do one volume every 3-4 months. Less if the dialogue is relatively simple. I mean, if I wanted to scanlate your typical hentai doujin, that’d probably take a couple nights max – they tend to repeat the same stock phrases.
