    Cool translation requests

    hope I am not posting duplicate post here.

    If anyone is thinking of doing some translation, would you consider JY's xiekexing and GL's Fu Hung Suet, Yip Hoi, or Meteor, Sword, Butterfly stories?

    thanks ahead.

    Much appreciation to your kindness.

    Would people mind if the Xiakexing was not translated word for word? I don't mind trying (if only for people to check if I got it right) and it will be good to test how well I actually read Chinese.

    There were certain bits where I completely skipped because it was too deep for me (notably the bits where the book tried to explain a lot of Wugong technical functions)... but it seems like fun.

    I'll tackle Bian Cheng Lang Zi (with Yip Hoi & Fu Hung Suet) when I'm done with Full Moon Curved Sabre.

    Cool

    Ian,
    it would be great if you want to have a go for Xie.

    I would love to know more of JY's lesser known stories such as white horse or yin-yang sabers.

    Personally, I love reading a story that I have not seen a TV adaptation of.

    It's kinda boring to read a translation of Xiao Ao Jiang Hu when you know what's gonna happen, after watching many times the TV series. Even though XAJH has a GREAT story, rereading it is boring. I tried to do that at first but in the end I'd rather read new and interesting stories like XLFD and S&E.

    I think the list proposed by Goofy is very interesting. Although I have seen 1 adaptation of Fu Hung Suet's saga (the 2 part movie), I like the story a lot and it's definitely something that would interest other members here. Good pick Junny

    Don't worry - The TV Xiakexing is nothing like the book. Most characters have the same names and relationships, and the general story is similar, but they're oh so different.

    Eeh, I'm trying to translate that now, but it's taking me ages just to get through the first chapter and there's 50 something chapters. Umm...I'm also relatively new to this forum, as well as translating, so can someone please explain to me what I need to do to post things up/etc? I'll post up what I've done with the 1st chapter soon, but I think I'll have to go back and re-edit some bits.

    I just type everything on Wordpad, then copy/paste it to the message board by clicking "reply". I'd use Word with all its spellchecking features, but I suspect there might be some formatting issues there.

    that is why I want to read it. Thanks Ian.

    I have tried to translate GL's short stories from my language (Thai), but I have problem finding the right spelling for the characters'names since in my book, the names are in Cantonese pronunciation with Thai style accent...

    I haven't read the first, actually. I only know that the sequel to Bian Cheng Lang Zi is Tian Ya Ming Yue Dao (End of the World, Bright Moon, Sabre) It is Fu Hung Suet's story. Far as I know, Meteor, Sword, Butterfly is a separate story, and Eagles Flying in September is Yip Hoi's story when he meets Shangguan Xiaoxian (Shangguan Jinhong's daughter).
