Thanks for the reply.
Is there a thread listing all current and active translations and how complete they are?
Are you a moderator of this forum? Were you here all the time?
Sorry...I just came back. In fact, I forgot my original account.
Do you know why wuxia translation slow down all of the sudden?
I have seen wuxia translations that started all the way back to 2003 that sorta just stopped...
I'd like to request a continuation of the work on Moon Demon and Legend of the LongSword Master, both by Huang Yi.
Hello, how would you translate this phrase? 有如要炸开来一般
I tried to use Google translate to translate the phrase, then I tried to unerstand each word, but they still don't make sense to me. Thanks
From what you gave me:
有 - have
如 - like
要 - need
炸开来 - blow up
一般 - typical
...so the whole phrase is: "...kind of like it needs to be blown up..."
or you can say: "...like it typically needs to be blown up..."
However, 炸开来 can be translated as "explode"...so it might be different depending on context.

It's saying he was so happy it feels like he's about to exploded.
It's just an expression. It's like of like when you are really happy you kind of heat up and your heart beats faster.
I would translate it as:
"...his heart felt so happy like it was about to explode..."
"Yang Guo did not feel like answering him. While pulling on Xiaolongnv’s hand, he went to the side and sat down on the stone base next to the pillar with her. His heart was so happy like it was about to explode. His left hand firmly stayed on her shoulder, as if he was afraid she would suddenly leave again. "
By the way...are you translating Return of the Condor Hero?
Isn't it like translated already?

That makes sense. Thanks a lot.
It's the 3rd revision. I might make a project out of it. Since most of the 3rd revision is the same as the 2nd revision which was translated, I probably will just search for the differences, then either try to translate them myself or try to get help, getting those differences translated. Some of those differences were also already translated as well. So it's just the matter of getting the rest of the differences translated. Thus it won't be such a big project.
Hi, I'm wondering wonder I can get permission to translate BixueXiYinQiang or what's known as Righteous Blood Cleansing Silver Spear by Gu Long.
This last translated chapter for this book was October 17, 2005, nearly five years ago.
I asked because there was already a translation thread for this book. I don't want to take over without permission.
This will be my first translation. I've been playing around with translation of majority of the past two weeks. I am feeling a bit more confidant with translating from Chinese to English. Though I must warn you I am not great at either Chinese or English.
I am starting the translation from Chapter 1. I primarily did so to see how well I can translate on my own. I'm compare my translation with BeeDreamer's translation, they're mostly the same be with slight difference. I went ahead and simply translated everything on my own. If you are interested you can compare the two. I did not read BeeDreamer's translation beside the first four chapter.
Don't worry, currently I've already translated the first 14 chapters. If I do get permission to pick this up, I'll start a new thread with my translate chapter 1-14. I will then try to finish chapter 15-39.
I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code.
Oh...ok, but is it alright if I start a new thread?
I don't know...I just thought it's interesting for people to see how two different people translate the same materials.
Beside, I already have chapter 1-14 translated.
Hi, there, i'm new member here.....
Does anyone of you have the translation of Sanxia Wuyi (Qixia Wuyi), a Wuxia novels related to Judge Bao and his court team?
NB:I found the Cinese version here, but I can't read Chinese. And please don't suggest me to buy the English translation on Amazon.
Hello, is anyone here????
