When I originally accepted the job, it was just as the typesetter, and I figured I’d earn maybe 500 DKK per month (around €68) if I was lucky. I ended up underbidding the other English to Danish translator and got that job as well, so now I’m raking in a lot more than I thought I would; approximately 3000 DKK per month. I could actually be raking in an extra 1000 per month on what he was actually willing to pay me for my services, but I felt like I would be ripping he off then, so I offered my typesetting services for a significantly lower price.
The selection is pretty good, though most is aimed at an older female audience (17-22), I think. Not a lot of seinen-type manga yet, unfortunately, but I’ve tried pitching Kenji and Grappler Baki. The selection, that I know of, is currently:
- Fana’s Snow Story (manga, one-shot)
- Lost Heaven (manga)
- Ojousama in Ooedo City (manga)
- Usagi Yojimbo (comic)
- Faux Pas (web comic)
- Girl Genius (web comic)
But as nice as this job is, I still need another part-time job to make things go round, since this wouldn’t even cover rent. I’m still hoping for the night-shift at a 7-Eleven, so fingers crossed!
