Hayate the Combat Butler

Hayate the Combat Butler :: Every Hayate manga makes references to anime, games and manga old and new. Figuring out the references can sometimes be the most time-consuming part of translating a page.

PROJECT: Translate Kenjiro Hata's manga series Hayate the Combat Butler (Hayate no Gotoku!) into English for well-known anime and manga publisher VIZ Media. This is an ongoing project; sixteen volumes have been released so far.

SOFTWARE: Microsoft Word.

SCOPE: My role is to perform the English rewrite based on the literal translation done by Region Free's Yuki Yoshioka and Cindy Yamauchi. The script is then turned over to VIZ for final editing.

NOTES: Job perfomed as an employee of Region Free. All work completed at my home office.
