In general, the dramas that anyone can subtitle without being QC:
- old dramas or movies
- Chinese dramas
- created content
It's where you can ask to subtitle if you begin. Once you have the QC status (3k subs, I think), you can move on to Kdramas.
This is what some people have been doing for the past year and what I did when I began.
If you target Kdramas witout being QC, I'm not sure you would be able to find a new one.
The new Kdramas are:
- Viki pass premium so available to QC only living in America.
- Viki pass standard so available to QC immediately but if you're not QC and want to subtitle on it, you have to wait 25-28 days (I don't remember the exact number) for the ep to be available to everyone. After 25-28 days, the ep is normally already subtitled in most popular languages, so even if you were recruited in this case, this amount of time would make you unable to subtitle because other subtitlers would have subbed it already and not sure fans can wait for 25 days for subs.
Moderators receive a lot of messages and are normally quite busy on Viki, they might not be able to answer you during the week. Henc, you can send them another message after a week precising the drama and your language.
Don't lose hope!
I don't know for which language you want subtitle and what kind of drama you want to sub, but people recruit on Chinese dramas.
