This is the help page for external light novel translation groups that would like to become affiliated with Baka-Tsuki.

One of Baka-Tsuki's goals is to spread the popularity of light novels among the English-speaking community, so we are very interested in networking with external translation groups to make it easier for our readers to find more translations. Please contact a Wiki Supervisor for details.

Definition

An external translation group is defined as an individual or group of individuals who already have a primary external location for hosting their translations, AND would like to stay recognized as a entity outside of Baka-Tsuki.

Individuals can be external translation groups, so material originally posted on publicly visible personal translation blogs also qualify under this definition.
