    Lightbulb Recommendations and Requests for Translators

    If you have recommendations or requests, please post a comment in this thread, I will update post #1. Also, please leave a message in the thread if you pick up one of the translations, I will delete it from the list.

    Before beginning any translation, please search on this forum, reddit and google to confirm that it has not already been picked up. There is no guarantee that the novels listed have not been picked up. PLEASE leave a message in this thread if you pick up one of these translations!

    Untranslated Modern fiction
    Beseech the Devil by Er Gen (求魔/耳根) [Er Gen's two other works, Xian Ni and I Shall Seal the Heavens, are both in the midst of translation. This would be a great title for someone to pick up.]
    Cloud Destruction Catalog by Squid Who Loves to Dive * (灭运图录/爱潜水的乌贼)
    Arcane Divine Throne by Squid Who Loves to Dive* (奥术神座/爱潜水的乌贼)
    The Great Conqueror by Skeleton Wizard* (雄霸天下/骷髅精灵)
    Martial Peak by No Silence * ( 武炼巅峰/莫默)
    Dragon, Martial Arts, Emperor, Respect by Maple Chant* (龙武帝尊)
    Accompanying the Phoenix by Jiu Lu Fe Xiang (与凤行/九鷺非香)
    Heavenly Resistence by Chen Hui * (天逆/陈辉)
    Portraits of Beauty by I am Superfluous (美女图/我是多余人)

    * These are guesses at translation titles and may or may not even be accurate translations. Feel free to reevaluate and change if you pick up these translations

    How to search for other modern fiction to translate
    Click the links below. Scroll down a little bit until you see a list of titles ranked 1-10 (see picture below). Those are the most popular current titles. Copy the title in Chinese. Search this forum and to /r/LightNovels/ double check it isn't being translated already. Go to a website such as this one. Paste the title into the search bar to get the raws. Rock on!



    Qidian web novels:
    Xianxia genre
    Wuxia genre
    Fusion Fantasy genre (mixing various elements of different cultures/genres)
    Epic Fantasy genre (more traditional western-style fantasy)
    Game genre
    Supernatural genre
    Science Fiction genre
    Historical and War genre

    I really hope that translators can take the time and effort to translate the titles of the books they are translating. How much more meaningful is it to read Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Outlaws of the Marsh, Journey to the West, and Dream of the Red Chamber, than Sanguo Yanyi, Shuihu Zhuan, Xi You Ji, Hong Lou Meng? But, that's just my personal opinion.

    I remember there was an old thread like this but the first post was never updated. Thanks for updating this!!

    Suggestion:
    Can you put the title of the web novel before it's RAW link? Preferably in Chinese, but doesn't matter if it's in English or Chinese. At first, I thought the 2nd link was for Shen Yin Wang Zuo until I clicked it to make sure. It may also help keep the thread updated because readers may recognize the title names.

    Yeah, without an updated first post, the thread gets out of control in my opinion. I hope this way will make it easier to see what's currently available to translate. Discussion can go on in the thread as needed.

    And sure, I can update the links and titles.

    Hey, Skyfire Lane (天火大道) is my side project on Wuxiaworld T.T hehehe.

    I think this is a great idea though! The forum was getting kinda clustered lately.
    Read the latest chapters of Coiling Dragon at Wuxia World!

    Hai,
    Has anyone translated the 5th book flying dagger, i can't find it in here.
    i'm not sure about the title maybe it's 飞刀,又见飞刀 - The Flying Dagger Again (? i just copy it from wikispaces). N i think (i've read the synopsis somewhere) it's about the adventure of Li Tanhua grandson.
    Thanks.

    I don't think that one has been translated, so I added it to the list. Thanks!

    Before the last Flying Dagger book, could I also request for Wu Lin Wai Shi, the prequel to the Flyind Dagger Series to be completed?

    I'm not sure what the chinese name for The Mythical Realm is, but the link points to the baka-updates page for Transcending the Nine Heavens (傲世九重天) Which is currently being translated by Rylain. Just wanted to let you know.

    I was wondering if there is anyone is interested in translating 上古强身术(美女图)Ancient Strengthening Technique (Portraits of Beauty) novel ? I heard about the novel from someone from their recommend novel list that it was a pretty good harem wuxia novel. The novel status is listed completed.

    Here is one of the link where the raws can be found.

    http://tw.fxnzw.com/fxnbook/38671.html

    I'm hoping there will someone who is interested translating it. If anyone do please let me know, I really want to read it.
