Well, I haven't participated in an auction in a while, but I have offered up scanlation services over at [community profile] help_for_ephemere:
This is a fundraiser to benefit [personal profile] ephemere, with the aim of supporting her in the wake of her losing her job, home, and good relations with her family due to homophobia. The idea of this fundraiser was conceived by friends of [personal profile] ephemere, and is being run with her permission. Funds will go to rent, utilities, food, and medical bills.

User name: [personal profile] torachan
Email address: kyuuketsukirui@gmail.com
I'm offering: Japanese to English scanlation
Examples of my work: Megchan's Sanlations
Fandoms: Any fandom, doesn't have to be something I'm familiar with
Additional info: I will scanlate one doujinshi, one-shot, or manga chapter of about 20-25 pages. If bidding goes higher, I am willing to do something longer, but just ask first. I have no restrictions on fandoms, pairings, or content. I do ask that you let me post it on my website when I'm done.
Starting bid (in USD): $20

Bidding runs Thursday, July 12 at 21:00 GMT to Saturday, July 21 at 21:00 GMT

Two things

1. This is will only make sense to people who were in TPM fandom, but I had to share. So, I wear these loungey pants around the house all the time, and generally (especially in the winter) I wear two or three pairs of them layered. I had most of them in the wash last night, though, so I was only wearing one, and as I got up from my chair, I noticed how weird and light it felt to just wear one pair of pants and how thin they felt, and then I realised...I was wearing thin sleep pants. XD

2. I made an offer for [community profile] help_japan. It's the usual translation offer, if anyone's interested:

Examples of my work: You can see examples of my summaries, scanlations, and translations on my website.

I'm offering: Japanese to English translation. Your choice of manga/doujinshi summary, translation, or full scanlation.

Summary: A summary of a full volume (~180 pages) of manga. This can be a volume in a series or a stand-alone. My summaries range from 1000-5000 words, depending on the amount of action. You must be able to provide raws or if you are not sure where to find raws, ask me if it's something I can find (I am just not willing to actually buy any manga for this). If you bid higher than the starting amount, I may be willing to do more than one volume.

Translation: A script-style translation of a manga or doujinshi, up to 40 pages. This can be a chapter of a longer manga, a one-shot, or a doujinshi. If you have two or more things that combine to ~40 pages, that's okay, too. Again, you must provide raws (especially for doujinshi, as I have no resources for finding them myself). If you bid higher than the starting amount, I may be willing to do more pages.

Scanlation: A scanlation of a manga or doujinshi, up to 20 pages. This can be a short chapter of a longer manga or a short doujinshi. If you have two or more things that combine to ~20 pages, that's okay, too. Again, you must provide raws (especially for doujinshi, as I have no resources for finding them myself). If you bid higher than the starting amount, I may be willing to do more pages.

I don't have any limits regarding graphic sex or violence. Het, slash, femslash, gen are all okay.

Fandoms: For doujinshi, any fandom is fine. It doesn't have to be something I'm familiar with.

Additional Info: I have 10+ years experience as a professional translator.

Starting Bid: £10 (about $16 US)

Since [community profile] help_qld has been put on hold and I don't know what's going on with it, I decided to make an offer in another auction:
Name: [livejournal.com profile] kyuuketsukirui

Offering: Japanese to English translation. Your choice of manga/doujinshi summary, translation, or full scanlation.

If you bid higher than the starting amount, I may be willing to do more than one volume.

Translation: A script-style translation of a manga or doujinshi, up to 40 pages. This can be a chapter of a longer manga, a one-shot, or a doujinshi. If you have two or more things that combine to ~40 pages, that's okay, too. Again, you must provide raws (especially for doujinshi, as I have no resources for finding them myself). If you bid higher than the starting amount, I may be willing to do more pages.

Hey, there is an auction! And once again, I am offering stuff!

Manga summaries (starting bid: $5)

Manga translation (starting bid: $10)

Manga scanlation (starting bid: $20)
torachan: (Default)
I have two offers for [livejournal.com profile] help_pakistan:

Translation services starting @ $10: I will translate one short to medium length doujinshi, one chapter of a manga, or one short to medium one-shot (~30 pages or so, though I am willing to do more if the bidding goes higher) OR 5-10 song lyrics (10 for shorter songs or those with lots of repetition, 5 for long songs)

Scanlation services starting @ $25: I will fully scanlate one short to medium length doujinshi, one chapter of a manga, or one short to medium one-shot (~30 pages or so, though I am willing to do more if the bidding goes higher)

Bidding is open now and will close at 11.59PM EST on Saturday August 28th.

Unlike previous auctions where I've offered fanfic and then been completely blocked and unable to write anything (sorry! D:), this is something I can promise without a doubt to fulfill. I did complete the translation for [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti by the deadline.
