forgive me if i'm in the wrong place or if this question had been asked before, but can anyone tell me that which edition is the translation of Divine Eagle, Gallant Knight (aka ROCH) in wuxiapedia? is it the 2nd or 3rd edition?
I preferred the FLP Panda version, I prefer complete over florid.
i really like ROCH 1995 theme song but i dont speak chinese so i have no idea what the song is about. can anybody tell me where i can get the english translated lyrics of that song? thx!
with so much love/attention being placed on huang yi's ''a step into the past'' by various translators here, i would boldly like to make a request. someone please translate huang yi's ''lethal weapons of love and passion'' , ''twin of brothers'' , or help grundle translate ''legend of the longsword master''. seeing more work by this author would be magnificent, and deeply appreciated.
Are there any English translations of The Water Margin? Or is amazon the only option?
this may be a very odd/unorthodox request but would anyone be willing to translate the taiwanese light novel series "legend of the sun knight" ???? I know it is currently being translated by another group but their release schedule is super slow in comparison to the magnificent translators over here. Just a thought!
Is there an English translation for Huang Yi's "Lethal Weapons of Love and Passion"? I've found plenty of Chinese versions, but I can't read it.
hi, i came across "Joy Of Life" by Maoni at lannyland, it is really interesting but i could find only 5 translated chapters, is anyone thinking of taking up translating from there?

I been reading a lot of novels here and love it.
I have a request for translation. This novel is originally Korean. I don't if there are any Korean to English translator here but I will ask anyway.
The novel is call moonlight sculptor. The story is about a guy playing a virtual reality rpg game. He do things very different from others and have a great advantage. He actually sign up for 6 different martial arts in real life so that he can fight better in the game.
Volume 1 is out in English: http://ninyave.blogspot.com/
No one seem to be translating... but I love this novel so much. It seem like of like Xiang Shaolong style where one guy is so much better then people around him.
Raws[Vol 1-19]: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=DUCOIA4K
Other novel similar to it is 1/2 prince and sword art online.
Love the site... read Return of Condor Heroes and Smiling Proud Wanderer. Enjoyed both immensely.
Would it be possible to get a tidied up version of demi-gods and semi devils, i.e. a thread where is only the current official version (as far as it goes) and no extraneous comments?
Also until this is finished, which books would people recommend next?
Only read Jin Yong so far. I like the upright heroes, the secret techniques, strange and terrible martial arts, and the resourceful and morally flexible heroines.
Any recommendations? Looking for finished books ideally.

The Sword & Exquisiteness
Smiling Proud Wanderer
Flower Guarding Bell
imo in that order
I believe he said he's already read Smiling Proud Wanderer.
How about Legend of Condor Heroes, or did you already read that before ROCH? And then the third novel in the trilogy, Heavenly Sword Dragon Saber, of course.
As for Gu Long's stories, I definitely second Legendary Siblings. You could also try the Lu Xiaofeng series.
As far as I know, I think that the unabridged threads are posted when the entire novel has been translated. I don't know if the previous DGSD translators will permit their translations being tidied up, but I can post a PDF of the entirety of Chapter 24 and do the same once I complete chapters in the future. It's kind of strange that although DGSD is one of Jin Yong's best-written and most popular novels, its translation is barely halfway complete. I blame it on the epic length and complexity of the novel.
I've read both ROCH (all twelve vols) and Smiling Proud Wanderer.
Based on the recommendations I'm planning to read Legendary siblings next.
Yeah, by tidied up, I just meant in a single unabridged thread. A PDF or even plain text would be great, I could read it most easily, but I thought it was against the forum guidelines?
I agree, it's a pity re the DGSD not being translated (that would would be my first choice to read next), but it is a labour of love on the translators' part, so I can't complain.
