So, first of all I won’t give much excuses for my absence. I had already mentioned before but this translation blog was practice for me so I would have sporadic releases. The first 30 or so chapters were done in succession since I was quite free during that time.
During this time, I passed N5 and another competitive exam I wanted to give. I also am aiming to give N4 this July. So, I have a bit of free time again.
I am now going through the earlier chapters of this WN (both here and the source) and it seems that the author has revised his story quite a bit. There are sentences popping up here and there, which were not in the original version. I have not gone through all of them, so I cannot say if the changes are major. But there are some additional details which do give few more perspectives to the story.
Since I wanted to edit my translation as well and now that I see there are some new stuff added by the author, I am going to go through all of my chapters and edit them. It will probably take some time. After finishing those changes, I will once again start translating the story. At that time, I would advise to read the earlier chapters again, as to understand the new details and also not to forget what happened.
At the time of my writing, the raw is currently at 68 chapters, including 5 short stories and prologue.
See you guys in future.
So, I am kind of feeling sick and might not be updating for the next few days. For those who liked the daily updates, I apologize.
Currently, I am 6 chapters behind the source. The next chapter begins a new arc which has yet to be finished. I skimmed over the next chapters and unless the author changed something, I probably made an error in translation regarding an event mentioned previously. However I cannot confirm it yet with the little info I have (from the 6 chapters only). For the time being, I will wait for the next arc to finish before I start translating again and correct the error if need be.
Also, since I have more or less caught up to the source (6 chapters will probably take me 3-4 days), I am planning to pick up a new novel in future. I had hopes of translating something like fantasy, but my vocabulary is probably not good enough for it yet.
When I do pick the new novel, I will make a new post with its summary.
Until then, I will probably be revising my past chapters to fix grammatical errors. See you guys, later!
So, as I mentioned in my previous post, I tried looking up Syosetu and just picked from there. I have not really read it before deciding if it was worth to pick it up. I am not in this, to read a good story to be honest. If it does end up being a good one, then that would just be an unexpected plus. Also, I have not checked if there is an existing translation going on for this.Read More »
First post to commemorate the blog. I aim to decide the web novel to translate by this Friday. Nothing more to say here, then.
