    Default Potential translator looking for some recommendations

    Hi guys, I've been considering trying my hand at translating some novels but I'm not all that knowledgeable on what's good. So if you guys would be so kind as to recommend me some wuxia or xianxia novels that are accessible online and no one else is translating, that would be great. Hopefully I can find something I'm able to translate and share with you guys.

    A synopsis to go along with any recommendation would be much appreciated.

    swallowed star: the translator for this novel only release the chapter once a week maybe you can help him translate more.
    synopsis: Synopsis: Year 2056, in a city in the Yuan Jiang Su Jin area. On top of a ruined, shattered six story residential apartment sits a teenager wearing a combat vest, militaristic trousers, and alloyed battle boots. On his back is a hexagonal shield and equipped is a blood-shadow battle knife. He sits there silently on the edge of the roof. At this time, the sparkling sky was shining and there was a refreshing breath within the air that blew towards him. However, there was only silence within the ruined, deserted city, with an occasional howl that makes your heart skip a beat.

    Another novel you can translate is called: God of thunder, the translator said he was also busy and can only do 1 chapter a week.
    synopsis:
    After being transported into another world, Lei XinFeng must struggle to survive. His village is settled in a forest, far away from any major cities. The simple Hunterís life is the norm. The village struggles every year to gather enough food in summer to store in winter. However, this world is not as simple as it seems. After just turning 16 years old, his grandpa is ready to begin Lei XinFengís LunLi training. Just what is Lunli and what past did his grandpa have? Will the new training help improve his current life and what obstacles will the coming winter bring?

    By the way, everyone keeps using the word synopsis incorrectly. A synopsis is a short summary. A synopsis would tell the main idea of what happens in the story. What you guys are calling synopsis is actually just a short introduction or teaser to the story...
    Current Translation: I Shall Seal the Heavens
    Recommended Translation: Heroes Shed No Tears

    +1 on transcending the nine heavens...anyway people should just recommend series that have not been pick-up by other groups or those series that have been dropped/semi-dropped by the groups that pick it up.. It's kinda disrespecting to them specially if they like translating the series themselves

    Tempered Immortal. It's basically about a really smart normal guy who doesn't have smart root (what's required to become immortal) trying to become an immortal. It's more about strategies and intelligence than just overpowering the opponents (it still happens sometimes). http://shushu.com.cn/b_nfg.htm

    Cut Immortal is about a guy who was close to being immortal sent back in time (only his memories). He starts over with all of his previous memories and tries to change his past. This is like I Eat Tomatoes novels where the main character is super overpowered. http://shushu.com.cn/b_vfa.htm

    Do i need to mention this every single time?
    Stop asking for people to translate projects if the one that currently work on it didn't drop it.
    For example of a dropped project just waiting to be picked up: Juvenile Medical God
    http://flowerbridgetoo.com/about-jmg/
    The translator gave up because he already had 2 others projects to focus on.
    He translated up to chapter 42.

    You can try this - Legend of the Longsword Master - Huang Yi
    Grundle already translated the book 1 over here

    sorry I am not that good at synopsis, but over here the main character is running away from the emperor until he was dragged between a war of 2 nations with lots of exciting happenings. Give it a try, this book is worth your time.
