Public Proofreading Initiative

Is English your first language? Do you have a strong grapse of grammar? Want to help improve the quality of Boku Girl releases?

Then why not give proofreading a try?

The goal is to make dialogs that flow naturally in English and suit the personality of the speaker, and correct any grammatical errors (Don’t worry about capitalization though).

Step 1 – Link on the link at the lower right corner.

Step 2 – Press this button to switch to list view.

Step 3 – Choose one of the chapters that are not being typeset yet (check out the topic of our irc channel for info on what’s being typeset. Generally, current release +2 chapters is safe).

Step 4 – Click the pop out button to get into the editing interface.

Step 5 – Now you can start making suggested changes or add comments (to add comments, highlight a passage or word then press the comment button on the toolbar)!

    This is a great idea, as a reader I feel like I don’t appreciate you guys enough, so by being able to help out, even if it’s only spelling errors that would be fixed anyway, I feel like I’m doing something ^_^. Speaking of which, I would offer to help translations, but I’m god awful at kanji, would you happen to know site that can help me with my kanji for free?
