Created in 2018, Second Life Translations has been providing free translated web novels of varying genres to the public. Currently looking to expand our team of translators, if you have a novel you would like to translate but don’t want to go through the hassle of establishing a site, why not join the team? We promise we don’t bite 😉

If you are already a translator and would like to move your posts over, please send me a link through the contact page or through discord, to your translations. If it is passable, you are permitted to skip the recruitment test and can start posting on the site immediately!
None at the moment. But you can still apply as a standby editor in case we need one!
- Be fluent in English
- Catch typos and grammatical mistakes
- Reduce redundancies and fix sentence structure to flow better
- If need be, add ad-libs to enhance flow of meaning
As such, editors are not only required to be proficient in the language, but must have a certain level of creative literary skill to allow the translation to read smoothly in English.
- Access to advanced chapters of the novels you are editing
- ***Some remuneration may be given depending on the translator and the popularity of the novel***
- Gratitude from translators who may not be able to spend enough time or have enough ability to polish their translations
To check out which novels require editing help, please check out our discord and head on to #editor-recruitment and DM the translator to express your interest.
