I think there should be tests to see the quality of work of new applicants. Other groups also do this sort of thing

Well, the only thing I can change is Hirigana to Kanji, or probably just erase the Furigana along side the Kanji. Most of the projects we work on are "Shounen" genre meaning it's targetted for younger readers who are not well versed with Kanji.
There are two types of JP translators the first, being the ones who can only read Hirigana & Katakana and the second, are the ones who can read Kanji and the other two.

The Japanese character system is composed of three, Hirigana, Katakana and Kanji.
Hirigana is what they use for typical words
Katakana is for foreign words and
Kanji for more complex words, since the Japanese language has many similar words and different meaning like the word "koi", it can be written as "恋" which means love and "鯉" which means carp.

I suppose I could try making a test that could determine the translator level if level 1 or 2. Then, the next one is accuracy of the translation.

I'll try to look for dialogues that Google can't translate, I actually come across many in our projects, but I can't use those, since I have already translated them.

heh? Shocked I never got an exam . . . does that mean I'm not getting work because I didn't test yet?

I mean here's what I feel right now: I want to get my first assignment done so that I can feel sure that I can be a good proofer / QCer.
but it seems like I might not be getting work because there's not a lot of work to get. =\
izzat true?
