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.

    Hi Illinox! If you are still open for commissions I have a request for Pandemonium Vol.3. Please shoot me an email when you have the time!

      Ooh, I’m still open. I’ll send an email to discuss the details although, admittedly, my waiting list is growing.

    Hello, I’m just wondering if anyone has requested a translation for Psychoclimber yet? If not, I’m willing to commission you for a translation.
    P.S. Love your work & thank you for introducing me to DUSK, haha.

      Nope, no one has yet! I do have a bit of a waiting list, but I’ll contact you via email to discuss the details. Aw, thank you so much for enjoying my translations and YES! another person has been dragged down into Dusk hell LOL.

    Dude, am I ready to commission the hell out of you. I absolutely love your translations and can’t wait to pay you for your time. I was wondering if you could translate/find(and I will pay for the cd!) for the green haired guy in the dusk Kankinkon series? He looks so good and yet I have no idea who he is but, boy do I want to!!!! Hope we can get this commission up and ready!

      ////// Haha, oh gosh, thank you for enjoying my translations so much! Ooh, I already have the CD you’re probably talking about. He’s Yamato, the delinquent boy who falls in love with the school nurse in the Kankinkon universe. I’m happy to contact you by email to discuss the details, although I should note that I’m currently working through commissions so there’ll be a waiting list.

    Do you still have any slots open for commissions? I’d be ecstatic to commission you for the following, if you were open to it:

    Apologies if I send this twice, my internet goofed and I want to make sure I asked!

      Hello, my commissions are still open although I’m currently working on one and have one in the waiting list. But I’ll be happy to add you onto the list. I’ll contact you through email with the pricing, but I’m totally a-okay with this one. Dusk owns my soul and wallet, haha.

    Hello! I would like to commission a R18 Drama CD translation if you’re still open for requests? Is there any limits or requirements that have to be met? (I just don’t want you to feel obligated in translating a genre you’re not comfortable with) You can contact me through my email :)

      Ilinox responded:
      April 25, 2020 at 13:29

      I am, although I do have a bit of a waiting list now. I’ll send you an email and we can discuss the details! Thank you!

    Hi! If you are still open for commissions, I have 2 drama cd’s I would like to request. Will discuss further through email.

    Hey! I’d like to commission a translation for the Kurusu Rei’s voice lines in the Subkare x Rouge et noir collab.

      Ilinox responded:
      April 20, 2020 at 17:12

      I don’t play Subkare, so you would have to provide the lines somehow. If that’s alright, we can look into how many lines there are and their length?

        Cassidy said:
        April 21, 2020 at 06:49

        Yes! That’s perfectly fine.

    Hi,
    I’d like to commission the Drama CD of “death march to the parallel world rhapsody” please if its possible.

      Ilinox responded:
      April 7, 2020 at 10:51

      Hello! Unfortunately, I don’t know that series so I wouldn’t be comfortable doing a drama CD for it because I’m sure I’d be missing a lot of background information. Sorry about that!

    Afternoon! It’s been some time but, if you are still doing commissions I am ready to have the cast talk and short stories of Rinkan Gakkou translated, I also plan follow up on a separate CD translation request soon after. Please and thank you, have a nice day :)

      Hello hello. I am and I’d love to tackle those. I’m just currently finishing up another commission right now but I’ll email you the details when I’m done. Gotta transcribe the small booklet first and see how many characters it ends up being :D.

    Are your comissions still open? If not, I hope you have a lovely day regardless and I look forward to seeing more of your translations! If you are, would you be willing to do Does Utopia Harbor Madness? by parasite garden? I’ve been very curious about it ever since it came out and would be happy to pay & provide the file(s).

      Ilinox responded:
      February 25, 2020 at 14:20

      My commissions are still open and I’ll also endeavor to have a good day, haha. Feeling pretty sleepy at work though, so I’m going to need a caffeine pick me up soon.

      Parasite Garden is a favorite circle of mine, so I’m happy to pick that up. I do have a bit of a waiting list though, currently working on one and with one waiting behind that. I’ll contact you via email to discuss the details though and if you’re still willing to be put on the waiting list after that!

        Chaotictapestry said:

        I look forward to the email! I have no problem waiting, please don’t feel rushed working on anything I commission.

    Hello! Are you still open? I’d like to request a translation of Masquerade Ch. 2 Seigi by Kawamura Masato including all the three tokutens. Please let me know if you could do it. Thank you :)

      Ilinox responded:
      February 23, 2020 at 17:47

      Oho! That’s a really nice choice, considering how much I loved his volume in particular in that series. Let me contact you via email to discuss the details <3!

    If you’re still open, could I commission you to translate Hyouhen Kareshi vol. 4 + the tokuten?

      Ilinox responded:
      February 23, 2020 at 10:51

      I’m still open! I’ll contact you through email to discuss the details :D!

    Hi! I was wondering if you still took commissions? I was hoping to see if you could translate Hyouhen Kareshi Vol. 5 (CV. Kakihara Tetsuya) along with both the Pil Vamp Tokuten and the Stellaworth Tokuten. And how much it would be in total?

      Ilinox responded:
      February 18, 2020 at 14:31

      Yup, I’m still open! I’ll contact you by email to provide the details :D.

    Hello there! I have been following your blog for a while and this is my first time ever making a commission so if possible I would like to request a translation of the Rinkan Gakkou CD including the short stories please and thank you :)

      Ilinox responded:
      February 8, 2020 at 22:36

      Hello hello! First, thank you for following and supporting my blog all this time! May I ask what Rinkan Gakkou is? The name’s not ringing any bells and anything I look up just leads me to something called the Happy Lesson Drama CD: Wakuwaku Rinkan Gakkou.

      I’m hesitant to translate things that come from games or shows that I don’t know anything about, since I don’t want to mess up characterization or lack background knowledge.

        February 9, 2020 at 09:03

        It’s that one kankinkon cd with Hikaru’s daughter as the heroine I’m so sorry if I did not word it correctly (>//////<), if you can't do that one that's is ok with me, I have a runner up request, Nijuu Pet Keiyaku = Hanare de = from vanilla recipe.

        Ilinox responded:
        February 9, 2020 at 12:30

        OH! No, no, I’m sorry for not recognizing the name. Nowadays, I feel like I have no comprehension in reading romaji because there’s no way for me to distinguish what sort of word you mean without seeing the kanji, haha. But yes, that’s totally doable, because I’m an unashamed Kankinkon fan |D.

        I’ll send you an email to confirm the details, although just to let you know I do have another commission ahead of yours so there’s a small wait time.

    Hi there, are you still accepting request? I have a CD that I would like to request for translation, it’s HoneyBunny situation.1 plus 3 tokutens. Please let me know if you could do it. Many thanks.

      Ilinox responded:
      February 8, 2020 at 21:13

      Yup, I still have 4 slots open! I’ll contact you through email to confirm the details but that’s totally doable. I have the CD but not the tokutens so you’d have to provide those though.

    hi! So I read that you’re taking some commissions and was wondering if you could do one for me? NoT Release. the main cd and the animate tokuten. Let me know if you need me to email you, etc. I am so glad you’re back missed your translations.

      Ilinox responded:
      February 7, 2020 at 10:13

      Yup, yup! I’ll contact you by email to confirm the details. I have that CD actually so I won’t be needing the files, and thank you so much for your interest! (For a second I thought NoT Release was NoT Regret and I was about to go “Oh no…” because I remember how much the first volume frustrated me LOL).

        madameneko said:
        February 7, 2020 at 15:06

        Ya know I honestly was thinking about having that translated BUT I’m more interested in NoT Release and since I have the animate tokuten as well it just has me asking all kinds of questions lol do you need the file for the tokuten?

    madameneko said:
    February 1, 2020 at 23:03

    omg I am so excited you’re back and will be taking commissions as well. I’ve got a handful of them that I would love to have translated but I’ll narrow it down to one. So glad you’re back

    Hello! I’m not sure if you’re still active but I just came across your blog and noticed that you accept commissions for translating drama cds. Your translations are the best so far I’ve seen ^^ I wanted to ask if you’re accepting commissions again.. This is actually my first time and I just newly got into listening drama cds as well.

    I wanted to ask if you can do a translation commission for Henai Kaneshi Vol.2 (VA: Satou Takuya) or is it already in the pending list? If not, do you mind if I have it commissioned? Thank you ^~^

      Ilinox responded:
      November 21, 2019 at 13:45

      I responded to this on Twitter (thanks for reaching out!) but, unfortunately, my commissions are closed for now ;w; I’ll definitely let everyone know when they’re open again though!

    Cassidy said:

    Hey! I was hoping you could translate Implied Odds and its stellaworth tokuten. Please send me an email.

      Ilinox responded:
      August 6, 2019 at 19:28

      Hello! It’s already been commissioned as well as Suou’s All In CD :) so no worries I’m actually working on it right now. Thank you for your interest though!!

    Hey! You know how you translated Gilles’ Kiss Day story? I’m interested in a translation for Arlen Clive’s and Rei Kurusu’s.

      Ilinox responded:
      July 21, 2019 at 15:26

      Oh, sure! I’ll send you an email and we can discuss the details. The text themselves are pretty short so I can manage this between my other commissions.
