Hello! I’m Ceph! I’m an American, born in ’87, and I love manga, anime and games. Having spent 8 years or so self-studying Japanese in my spare time, and having spent 2 years teaching English in Japan, I felt well-equipped to begin translating Japanese text at an intermediate level.
So I looked into it and found opportunities online with scanlation groups, volunteer-translating only unlicensed manga (meaning manga that hasn’t been officially released in the US). It wasn’t until 2017 that I started translating manga online, but I feel my skills have improved greatly since then.
The groups I’m currently a part of:
They really helped me learn the ropes and gain an understanding of what the work entails. Between the two, I keep a constant queue of material to work on. Along the way, though, I’ve worked on joint projects with groups like Fallen Syndicate, Shoujo Sense, and You’re Welcome Scans.
Thanks for reading! If anyone would like to ask questions, offer work or perhaps request help, please use the Contact page to reach out to me!
