Commissions

Hello, welcome to the commission page! I’ll be using the page to show whether I’m open or closed for commissions.

status: [OPEN]

By default I will post finished drama CD commissions on my blog, unless explicitly mentioned not to by the commissioner. I will also send the finished translation as a PDF but I’m willing and happy to provide the translation in whatever format the commissioner would like (ex. PDF, doc, etc).

Examples of my work can be found in my drama CD section or character song section. The rest of my posts are pretty much examples of my translation (though otome games are shifted into 3rd person exposition) with the most recent posts being an example of my current level of Japanese (I’m an official N2!).

PRICES (CDN):

  • $50 per drama CD (+ $0.50 per minute after 90 minutes).
  • $25 per song.
  • $0.02 x [Japanese characters/2.5] for text (ex. short stories, interviews, etc.).
NOTES:
  • !PLEASE PROVIDE THE FILES YOU WANT TRANSLATED! I’ll let you know if I already have them.
  • I reserve the right to refuse a commission for reasons I may or may not disclose.

HOW TO:

Just comment on this page showing your interest and I’ll send you an email to discuss the details. I don’t want to post my email here to avoid spam bots and comments will help me organize who was first. You don’t need a WP account to comment! Just make sure to enter a valid email in the email section it prompts you with so that I can contact you; no one else can see that email except for me. Or you can contact me through Twitter, Tumblr, or even Curious Cat.

If you look at my sidebar under “Now Playing” you can see my wait list (if I have one ongoing). I denote whether they are [A]ctive or [P]ending commissions.

Once we’ve discussed the details of the commission and have agreed upon a price I’ll send an invoice through PayPal. I will automatically keep you updated if I feel like the translation has taken me longer than a reasonable amount of time, but please feel free to ask for updates whenever you’d like.

      I’d be happy to do as much as you want, haha, but first I need to clear some more space on my waitlist. Thank you for your interest and I’ll contact you again via email when I make some room!

    Hello! If you’re still open for commissions, would you be willing to translate Nante Suteki Na Happy End ~ Haruomi Sato Hen? If so, email me whenever you have a chance. Thank you!!

      Ilinox responded:
      November 26, 2020 at 19:58

      I’m tentatively open! Haha, I will mark you down as being interested and contact you when I get more spaces on my waitlist open. Thank you so much for letting me know here!

    Hello! I’ve been stalking your commission page for a while and I’m happy to see your commissions open! I have CD (+tokutens) I’d like translated if you have the time and interest for doing it :)

      Thank you for your interest! I’ve been trying to grind through my commission list, so I didn’t get a chance to reply to these comments until now but please know that I’ve marked you down as being interested and someone to contact when I get more spaces on my waitlist open!

    Hello! Hi! Hola! Not commission though. Just an enquiry. Do you open commission on December? Maybe after 7 but it doesn’t matter. It just my pay day. I been searching for someone to translate this drama cd for a long time. Btw, I found your websites long ago. I want to ask you for the commission but I was afraid. My curiosity got over it. Thank you and hope you have nice day!

      Ilinox responded:
      November 13, 2020 at 16:44

      Haha, there’s no need to be afraid and thank you for your interest in commissioning me! I’ve been trying out a new schedule where my pace is reduced to prevent burn out and I wouldn’t be surprised if this takes me into December, so no worries there! Commissions will still be open!

      I’m currently working through my pending list before I contact people who have expressed interest, but I can make a mental note to contact you past December 7, if that is what you would like!

        Thank you so much for answering. I’m very much like that. Also don’t worry if you forgot, I’ll ask you again when the time come. I have another question. The drama cd that I want to commission have 4p in it. Do you extra charge for that?

        Ilinox responded:
        November 14, 2020 at 07:50

        Nope, the contents of the CD don’t affect the price at all, only the length does!

    When your wait list is a little less long, if you’re still open to commissions, I’m interested in commissioning you again as well! I hope you have a wonderful day!

      Ilinox responded:
      November 12, 2020 at 10:32

      I will send you an email once I get through a bit more, haha. Thank you so much for your interest in commissioning me again too!

    Hi Illinox! Was wondering if you were open for a commission from me? Please let me know if there are any more slots open!

      Ilinox responded:
      November 7, 2020 at 13:08

      I’d be happy to, although my wait list is growing a bit. I’ll send you an email and we can discuss the details <3!

    Hello! If your commissions are still open, I’m interesting in commissioning you for a song (“Wrap Wrap” THRIVE)!

      Ilinox responded:
      November 5, 2020 at 11:37

      Normally, I would wait until I cleared a bit of my wait list before responding to people but I’m happy to do a song translation! It’ll break up the pace, haha. Let me contact you by email to discuss the details.

    Question: What is the max length you would/could do for commissions? One Drama cd from DLsite I had my eye on is like 130 minutes or so. I know you’re closed for commissions and I’m watching to see if you open them up in November or in the future. Thank you.

      Ilinox responded:
      October 9, 2020 at 12:12

      There’s no maximum length! It’s just a bit costlier because I start dinging per minute after it exceeds 90 minutes. This was the calculation I settled on to be fair to commissioners and myself, since 40 minutes of pure talking is extremely taxing but meanwhile a lot of R18 drama CDs easily hit 90 minutes with their bedroom scenes that are just white noise panting LOL.

    I don’t want a commission just came to thank you. It’s so hard to find translations and you’re awesome! Especially with the amount of requests you probably get.

      Ilinox responded:
      September 15, 2020 at 20:17

      Aw, that’s so sweet of you ;w; I did have a constant flow when I had my commissions open, but I’ve closed them now to get some personal projects done and because work has gone back into full swing, oof. But I might open them again some time in the future!

    Im am so happy you exist. I just got into these thanks to kiara.cool but wanted a real selection. I look to throwing money at you in the future.

      Ilinox responded:
      September 13, 2020 at 13:40

      I’m not sure I understand what you mean by a real selection…? Haha, like an entire database of translations? Because I’m just a single person doing these, have mercy LOL. Thank you for your interest in future commissions though!

        aquabenten said:
        September 15, 2020 at 07:16

        Oh no I do understand that you are one person, but the first site that led me onto this rabbit hole only had 3 total. You have done an amazing job.

        aquabenten said:
        September 15, 2020 at 07:18

        And the second site i found that said translations had a grand total of zero. So I appreciate you

        Ilinox responded:
        September 15, 2020 at 20:16

        Ohh, haha, I think I know what sites you might have stumbled on. Some people just do translations of the synopses for drama CDs so people can look at what’s coming out and make informed purchases :D.

    It’s Chaotictapestry here, wondering if… (dons sunglasses) I could commission you for parasite garden’s Pet Contract? I know you have a huge list right now, so this is only if you’re comfortable while commissions are open, and only with the knowledge that I am 100% okay with a long wait.

      Ilinox responded:
      June 9, 2020 at 12:51

      Hello hello! Oof, yeah, my waiting list is hitting its limit, haha, so I won’t even commit to adding any more people onto the waiting list until after I clear up the current ones ;w; thank you for your interest and being patient though! I’ll contact you after I make some more space.

      Will you do Makabe’s VR?

        My commissions are currently closed, sorry!

    Hi! I’d like to commission the Rouge et Noir Arlen Clive VR CD.

      Ilinox responded:
      June 9, 2020 at 12:50

      Oh gosh, I’m a little bogged down on commissions right now, so I’ll contact you after I clear up some space to discuss the details. (My own Arlen package is currently in transit, haha, and I’m not sure if I’ll accept doing the VR tokutens, just the prologue CD).

        Cassidy said:
        June 9, 2020 at 16:33

        Sure! I’ll be looking forward to it!

    Hi there! If I may, I would like to do a commission for Triangle Kingdom Side: A, please and thank you 😊.

      Ilinox responded:
      May 31, 2020 at 16:04

      Ooh, I’ll contact you through email to discuss the details!

        Hello! I would love to commission you again for a Drama CD this time. Please let me know if you have any available spots left! Thank you so much.

        Ilinox responded:
        November 7, 2020 at 13:09

        I think I can slot one more into my wait list before I want to hold off on responding to anyone else. Lemme send you an email and we can discuss the details!

    I know you accept commissions for drama cds and novels, but do you do full-length games by any chance? I’ve been desperate for a translation of Hana Awase’s Iroha-hen ever since I found out it was released last year (and I adore your writing for the previous games!) >.< He's my fav and I want him to get his own happy ending.

      Ilinox responded:
      May 24, 2020 at 12:20

      Aah, I’m afraid not. I wouldn’t even know where to begin pricing that, haha. I don’t actually do novels either because they have an enormous word count that I don’t think anyone could afford |D;; only short stories really. The novels that I have translated were just done on my own time.

      I’ve been trying to find time to go back to playing games because I myself want to finish the HA series, but I just haven’t been able to drum up the attention span to sit down and enjoy a good story. I keep getting distracted by piecemeal mobages oops.
