    Currently Aequitas is translating it, if you want, you can discuss it with him, cause I think he did mention something about help once.

    The current translator is MIA? What are you talking about? A new chapter was released a couple of days ago.

    Anyway, Aequitas has been doing the the translations recently, so you should talk to him before anything.

    Idk about any untranslated ones, but if you are still interested, Aequitas said more than once that he'd like for someone else to pick up the project, since he doesn't have enough time

    "Translators" like myself just do this for fun and for others.

    I'd call myself... Better Than Nothing "Translations."
    Good enough?

    Aequitas translates by hand. He uses Google translate on a few words that he doesn't recognize, which you can see here. Overall, his translations are fairly accurate.

    I think he's caught the translation bug, as I've offered to take it over a while ago, but he enjoys having it as his side project. More power to him
    Read the latest chapters of Coiling Dragon at Wuxia World!

    Hey Puttty, I am not sure this wuxia novel counts as a 'Popular novel' but 'Joy of Life' isn't active anymore since the translator his studies started, but you'll have to read a bit yourself to see if it's a good novel or not, i enjoyed the 30 chaps that are out.

    It's about a paralyzed boy that gets reincarnated.

    I would really like to see joy of life continued^^

    But that's just my 2 cents. if you don't like Joy of Life i hope you find another novel that does suit your tastes

    I'll be glad to, but as people have said, there is already a translator and I don't wish to steal his work.... I'm really sorry, maybe you can ask him about it?

    Aequitas does do good work but, unfortunately, he will only be able to hammer out one chapter every two weeks to a month because of school. This is fine of course, but there is plenty of room for another TL to jump on ST. Perhaps a 5 or 10 to 1 chapter split, depending on how you would destribute the work load?

    If not, Legend of the Longsword Master could use a TL. http://www.spcnet.tv/forums/showthre...aster-Huang-Yi

    Honestly... you should just do Stellar Transformation because

    1. You like it meaning you will have more fun doing it and it will be less of a "chore"

    2. As others have mentioned it, the current translator is doing this as a SIDE thing. I am GRATEFUL for what he does but he does not own ST. There is no reason for you to not do it just because someone else started it. He is going to take a week or two for a chapter which is pretty unreasonable if someone is going to do it faster.

    Please just do MT. Don't let A LOT of people suffer just because someone else started it first. No one will think it is bad for you to start it.

    I don't really like MT, reasons? Many Chinese characters have double or even more meanings and it's a hassle
    I just do it whole manually, I've tried and it doesn't take too long, I could probably post 2 chapters per week? (Depends on the length) but as I had said, I'm not *****ing because someone already did it! I will pick it up like any other novel, BUT a person is currently translating and what I'm doing is to respect the translator, image you are working on a project that's really not easy and another person does it faster and steals readers from you, would you be happy? I would never so something like that as I respect all translators, I am ONLY willing to do dropped or untranslated novels, or the current translator of a novel decides to hand over his project to me. I AM not willing to partner as I already have one friend as MIT partner. Thank you for reading this rant... I'm not really that mad or anything but I'll like to point out its disrespectful to ask someone to steal a project from another person that is doing it FREELY out of his OWN time,for people he don't even know. I hope you can understand (◐‿◑)

    Btw, I read ST for a while and dropped it, I didn't really like it. But, my friend, which is my partner, lives it so we can pull it off. Of you all can somehow get permission from the current translator, I will contact him and and do all those admin stuff. ;-: and get a black and white message stating that HE ALLOWS it cause I don't want no trouble and just want to help translate some stuff ;-;

    Well, I've probably left a bad impression but I had to point that out... Please respect your translator for what they take their time and effort to do

    update:
    ive sent a PM to the current translator, let's see if he allows~ if not I'll probably do joy of life, let's see shall we?
