    Hi everyone!

    Today I'm happy to announce that Shotbow is opening up staff applications for the Localization Team.

    Before you check out the application, let me tell you a little bit about what this team does for the network.

    If you don't know what localization means, it is essentially a fancy word for translation. On the Localization Team we translate things like the Rules, YouTube videos, Ban Appeals and much more. The goal is to have access to as many languages as possible in order to reach a wider audience; and that is only possible with your help.

    If you want to know who is already on our team, just check out the Staff Wiki page at the very bottom and you'll see what languages we currently support. We are primarily looking for Chinese and Korean translators, however we can always use more help for the languages we have. Due to the partnership with DDG for example, it would be great to have more Dutch translators even though we already have 2 on board.
    • Applications will remain open but we no longer need applications for the following languages
      • French
      • Spanish
      • Portuguese
      • Turkish
      • Dutch
      • German
      • Chinese
    As the team grows, I would like to have language support in places like our Discord but in order to do that, we'd need the people to help, which is where you come in :)

    Below is the application: follow and read it carefully and I will start to go through the applications after a week or so. Even if you are not accepted on the team, I will send you a reply on the forums so keep an eye out for that! Replies will come anywhere between 1 week and 2 weeks so be patient

    Thank you for reading and good luck! :D

    Oh god... I hope thats just glare on the glasses and not actually pupils on your skin. Either way, hopefully you get the translators you need :eek:k_hand:

    Good luck y'all (for the third time). Not applying again even though I am Dutch and am on Discord a lot.

    Can I just say that those glasses look excellent on you, Dr Fridge.

    It works fine for me so it could be the browser you're using.

    The only thing wrong about that picture, is that your eyes should be black with red, not white with red.
    Look at your skin.
    See you too in court.

    I realized after finishing the entire banner than I forgot to make it a unibrow, I didn't take out the sparkle in the eye and I forgot to make the eye colour black. I was so tired yesterday...

    Understandable, it probably takes A LOT of energy to keep all that food cold and fresh in your stomach.
    Definitely understandable, sir.

    Probably not, and they're only looking for native speakers too.

    Good luck to everyone who applied!

    This time I wanted to apply too :D, but theres an important thing that I forgot to write into the application: Gallego and Portuguese are very similar languages, keep it in mind!
