What is a typesetter?
A typesetter is someone who inserts translation texts into the cleaned pages of a chapter. A typesetter, in order to be able to insert the texts into the pages, must have quite a large database of fonts, especially fonts used by Raindrops Scanlations. A typesetter is expected to decide on the context of the texts if it is not mentioned by the translator(s) (e.g. speech, thoughts, descriptions, etc.). But this job is not merely about inserting text into speech bubbles. A typesetter must also know how to place the texts inside the bubbles so that it won't look bad; how big the font of the texts must be so that it would still readable but tidy as well, how to organize the sentences so it would be easy to understand, and so on.

Raindrops Scanlations' projects open for new typesetters:
