    Talking Suggest novels to Translate

    Hello Guys,

    I had some free time so was planning to start translating long lost dead novels. I love Coling Dragon, Doulou Dalu, Stellar Transformations, So will probably decide to go with something similar

    Cheers

    You can try translating a series that no one else is translating, or you can try asking the other translator if they need help with their work.

    I've suggested its in thupac thread,( http://www.spcnet.tv/forums/showthre...l-to-translate ) But i don't know if he'll pick it up.


    [Jiang Ye (before night) by Mao Ni, genre xianxia. MC is smart, n i like his relationship with his companion (servant). Maybe you can help biggodude to translate it.

    Law of the Devil , i dont know the genre. MC is smart with unique personality. https://bluesilvertranslations.wordp...-of-the-devil/. It's side project from bagelston, so you can take it if you want.]

    He can't just take it, he needs to ask the translator first, before translating it.

    How much time do you think you can commit to translating?

    Perhaps you could ask the current translator of Swallowed Star if could take over the project? The current translator seems pretty busy with RL right now so maybe that might work out. Especially if you enjoy IET works, that would work out great for you.

    What about other IET works? Does he only have 4 novels?

    Also the current translator of Zhu Xian is pretty busy and already said if another translator wants to cooperate or take over the project he is up to it.

    I don't mean to take it without inform the translator, sure it would be very rude, Bagelston said in his/her blog about law of the devil, From blue silver translations:

    ""This will very much be a side project for when I feel I need a break from Douluo Dalu. If anyone else fancies taking it up instead, let me know.""

    Swallowed Star is One i was interested in as well, I can probably do a daily release of 2-3 chapters. Same pace as coiling dragon i guess, maybe more in weekends.

    I'll see if i can have a talk with them.

    Thanks


    EDIT: Seems like Zebulin is already translating it.

    Haha no worries, I completely understand.

    The reason I asked about how much time you could commit was because it seems that while Zebulin is currently the only active translator of the project, he seems to be very busy with RL and can only release a chapter every week or so.
    Hence, I don't think it would be unreasonable for someone who could commit more time to the project to take over it. That was my thought process.

    If not, I'm sure there're some other IET novels out there besides the ones currently translated yeah?

    Looking forward to reading your translations! Regardless of your choice

    I won't take on a project someone else is doing, even if their release is slow. Unless they themselves allow it.
    I am still open to suggestions.
