    Default August 31st, Translators Appreciation Day

    The translators are doing a fine job and are making immerse personal sacrifices of time and energy in translating these Wuxia novels so that ppl who lack Chinese language knowledge can also enjoy the novels.

    I propose that August 31st be declared the Translator's Appreciation Day.

    Post your appreciation now.
    I will edit your name into post #2

    Pl check post#2 for updates regularly.

    I enjoy reading the translations of Gu Long's works made by
    Athena, Meh, Moinllieon, TigerWong, Junny and luna_rainbow.

    Some of the translations I follow almost everyday. For others, I am saving up the fun on my hard drive and plan to read a large number of chapters in the same breath.

    But I have read a bit of every thread, and the literary level of the translations is very high. And it seems that at least one of the translators is still in high school, very impressive.

    This forum is the one major reason I visit SPCnet.

    Instead of just posting my name, I would like to personally thank the following translators for I'm following all their stories.

    Noodles for translating my fav story.
    Meh (and FaQ and Athena a bit) for translating my 2nd fav story.
    FaQ for translating one of my fav wuxia stories outside of JY.
    Junny and Athena for introducing me to the world of GL.
    and Ian for translating one of my fav short stories.

    I like to thank Moin and Lanny too, but they take so long to do a translation that I've been pulling out my hair. j/k

    Also, a special thanks to the other translators. Although I don't follow your stories/translations, I still appreciate your efforts.

    Hi everyone! I've been reading and enjoying these translations for some time. Once I saw the topic of this thread I decided to make my first ever post one of appreciation. So to all who take the time and make the effort, thanks for all your hard work.

    August 31st is Malaysia's National Day. The whole Malaysia will be celebrating with u guys.

    My appreaciate to

    Ian Liew

    for translating Xia Ke Xing (Ode to Gallantry). I have been wanting to read this story for ages (ever since I watched the TVB version of Hap Hak Hang and found out that it was a totally inaccurate version).

    Thanks Ian.

    Also to Lanny Lin for the translation SOD, Moinllieon for the translation The Adventures of Lu XiaoFeng and Athena for the summary of Chu LiuXiang.

    Thanx to all translators for making it possible for us non-Chinese or Chinese illiterate to read these great Jin Yong and Gu Long novels. Without you, I'll still be reading the Sunday funnies (actually, I still read them anyways).

    Thumbs up Thx Translators!

    Hiya gys,
    Count me in too. Thx translators for your time and effort in translating these classics for an English speaker like me. [kowtow]
    -
    -
    PRIMARY support to:
    Thx for Athena for DAILY updates of TSATE.
    Thx Noodles for HUGE weekly [and in between too ] updates of ROCH.
    Thx Junny for HUGE weekly [and in between also ] updates of FMCS.
    Thx Meh for HUGE updates to Flying Dagger Li.

    SECONDARY support to:
    Thx to Moinllieon for Lu Xiao Feng series [only read up to the first case of Lu Xiao Feng. Glanced at the 2nd case, but decided to postpone reading it until have more time. sry, it mainly has to do with cliff hangers and waiting to resolve them. ]

    Thx to FairyQueen for WhiteHairedDemoness. Havent read much for the same reason as Moinllieon. And thx Someguy44 for posting it to SPCNET.

    Thx to Ian Liew for Xia Ke Xing and Luna Rainbow for Wu Lin Wai Shi. Heard good things about Xia Ke Xing and Wu Lin Wai Shi. decided to post reading it becuz of Moinllieon's Xiao Feng first and becuz early development [Sry, I dont like early cliff hangers. actually I dont like cliff hangers. ]

    Thx TigerWong for A Happy Hero. very hilarious introduction.

    Thx Lanny Lin for Smiling Proud Wanderer in his own website. Really dig the ROCH Dugu Qui Bai info.

    Yes, I agree about Translator Appreciation Day.
    They really do us a lot of favour by doing the translation.
    without thei effort we who don't know chinese can read the great story.
    To Athena, Meh, Moinllieon, luna_rainbow, junny, Ian Liew, FairyQueen and someguy44 who post it. Tiger Wong, Lanny Lin and all others translators those I can't mentioned all.
    Thank you very much.
    Regards,
    Sanjaya

    this is a good way to let the translators know that they have lots of support and appreciative fans, including me

    so far following Athena, Moinllieon, Meh and TigerWong's translations, absolutely fantastic

    will follow the other translations by Junny, Ian, luna, FQ and someguy44 a bit later (I get a bit confused when reading too many stories at once ) can't wait to get started on those too

    took some time responding to this thread because of the blaster virus going around
