Translator Announcements

Below is a letter from the author, Ro Yu-Jin, to you guys, the readers!

=================

Dear WuxiaWorld Readers, 

Hello, this is Ro Yu-Jin. To be honest, I am nervous as I am writing this letter, and everything feels so surreal. I never imagined a day would come when I would communicate with foreign readers.

Looking back, it was the same when I received word that my novel would be serialized in a foreign webnovel platform. Even when I heard about it on the phone and then had a meeting about it, I found it hard to believe. 

'My novel is going to be translated into English? Really?' 

I felt like I was on cloud nine.

I never considered this a possibility before I started writing, so I was worried whether the international audience would like my novel... but I think I was more happy than anything else. Showing the world of my imagination to more readers and giving them enjoyment, that is a very happy thing to an author. 

Thankfully, I was really happy to learn that international readers were really loving my novel. Going...

It occurred to me that not everyone is aware of this even though I had it up in the translator's thoughts under the chapters (!!), so I'm going to paste what Rubble helped me say here. Not because I'm super lazy but because I might just be a wee bit lazy.

We've caught Mars again.  We will only be maintaining 4 advanced chaps while we are caught up to Mars.  Release rate will be "after Mars writes a chapter".  Hopefully Mars will go on one of his writing binges again soon and we can return to normal, but until that time we will do our best for you all. 

Feel free to wiggle and do the rain dance while praying for more chapters. You know you want to.

UPDATE: Thanks for all the well-wishes. I'm still working little by little when I feel okay, but progress has been very slow. I hope to be able to get one chapter out by tomorrow morning.

I've been hospitalized for a bad case of the stomach flu/food poisoning. I'm still translating in bed but the release times might be erratic for a day or two.

Hey everyone, I've scheduled two chapters for today 1/14, and will be heading out the door in a few minutes to take BDB to school and then head to surgery. The current plan is to take 2.5 days off to rest and recovery, and resume posting chapters on 1/17. For details, check out the original post. If you have any questions or concerns, leave a comment in the original post. See you all in a couple days!

Break Day 1/3 today! And if you are able to do so, please donate to the Australian Wildfire relief efforts!

In case you need a bonus, 50% of the profits for all mugs purchased in January will be donated to the relief efforts. I will also match the donation for the first 50 mugs! That means 100% profits will go to the relief efforts if you need an extra incentive to donate!

See you all tomorrow as Baby Rifle reaches 9 months old!

For those who have tried clicking on the glossary of common Korean terms and got the VIP error, it's actually because I made it using a special page in the Ranker's Return category and just copied the link. I forgot the novels wouldn't be releasing at the same time.

Since Ranker's Return is being released in a few days, just check then and it will work.

Dear Fellow Daoists,

Before getting into the long explanation, let me summarize the point of this announcement: there will be a few days here and there over the next few months in which I take a break from releasing chapters. There are a few reasons which I’ll explain as succinctly as possible below.

First: surgery. I’m having my second round of surgery on Tuesday, Jan 14. That’s in two days. Last time I took a short break afterward for recovery, but honestly, it wasn’t long enough. This time my plan is to take two full days off, and possibly an additional half-day depending on how I feel. 

Second: moving and traveling. Our lease is up and we need to move within the city, so we’re going to combine it with a trip to China, since we have some important personal/family matters to handle there. Our final move-out date is January 31st, so at some point in the days leading up to that, I’m probably going to take a day or two off to focus on the packing and moving, especially my office/workstation. We will stay with my parents...

Hey everyone,


IGE is finally completed! What a journey it has been - I first started translating this novel in 2016 (I think?) on my own little site as a hobby and finally finished it this year at the start of 2020. Translating chapters, spending 2 hours on a single chapter, day in and day out can often be a dull and tough task. When I first started, I had no idea of the scope of the task I began but when I start something, I'm determined to finish it. I know I've not been the most consistent of translators in terms of releasing chapters, so I want to apologise for any frustration I've caused. 

First and foremost, I want to thank my amazing editor Joey who has without fail, edited and proofread chapters for me without fail. He's been the best support I could ask for. I want to thank Ren for inviting me to come onto Wuxiaworld, and bringing IGE to a greater platform of readers. And finally, I want to thank the sponsors and the readers for supporting the translation of IGE.

So what's next? There will be a period where...

Hi everyone,

Not even a month has passed, yet here we are celebrating the 1st 100 chaps!!

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the sponsors that have been supporting me since we started this journey, and everyone else, especially sigh and A8nton who have been helping me correct the fails I leave in the chaps. Sorry!

Anyway, here are 5 bonus chaps from me to mark the occasion and to thank everyone. Love you guys!

Hey guys, 

Our new translator Magic Bonnie has officially joined my team as a translator. In fact, some of our sponsors might have read her first chapter already. So let's give her a warm welcome, shall we?

However, since she's starting slow and I'm spending a lot of time helping her familiarize with things, we're actually not producing more chapters than I did on my own. However, I'm very confident that things will pick up and we'll be able to increase our releasing rate in a week or two. So that's something to look forward to.

Anyways, let's give Magic Bonnie our warmest welcome. Thank you, guys.

Hello everyone hope you all had a good holidays. As many know Renegade Immortal's translation had completed last week. I like to thank all the readers who had been with me throughout this translation. Especially all the sponsors that had continued to support me despite some rough release schedules at times. I hope you all enjoy this novel over the years. I was informed of a postscript and I have translated. It will be posted when this is posted so enjoy a words from Er Gen after the end of Renegade Immortal.

As for the future I'll continue to translate here, a novel has been picked but I'm still waiting on the legal process to go through so hopefully it will appear in the teaser section soon. It will be difficult to follow up something as amazing as Renegade Immortal has been but I hope you all will enjoy it when it comes out.

Thanks everyone gain for all your support and have a good 2020!!!

Hello everyone,

As you are all probably aware by now, there is a terrible fire going on in Australia right now. I recently saw a picture of a burnt baby kangaroo...and wow, it's bad.

If you are able to donate, please do so. Here is a link that tells you different places you can donate to, as well as an image of different links as well.

I was originally planning on opening MiracleRifle's Mini Mart once I had a few more items, but I thought I'd open it early even with just one item quickly created to do what I can to help. (Legally, we are not allowed to sell merchandise with fan art, so I can't really sell anything visibly novel related so I'm trying to develop more original things for it).

Visit MiracleRifle's Mini Mart HERE

For each item sold in the month of January, 50% of the profits will be donated toward the Australian Wildfire relief efforts.

In addition, I will match the donation for the first 50 mugs to get the ball rolling (That means you get a mug while 100% of the profits will go toward...

1-17 Everything caught up! Sorry it took so long!

1-16 Only 1 chapter today, adding 1 to missing chapters for a total of 2. Had to run some errands, feeling very tired. I'll strive to do 4 chapters tomorrow so that we can be caught up.

1-15 Update 2 chapters released, missing 1 now

Early Afternoon 1-12 Update. Released 4 chapters, not sure if I can do anymore today. So let's count 2 toward today's chapter count. Missing 3 chapters still. Sorry about the lateness, working on them.

Overnight/Early Morning 1-6 Update. Released 3 chapters, missing 5 now. Time to sleep!

Overnight update. Added 1 more chapter. Missing 6. Will be doing 3 chapter days to catch up!

Cold got better today. Had to take the last 2 days off to recover, slept in and all. Family still sick but we're all getting better.

I am 7 chapters behind, but I'm trying to get 2 more chapters out tonight so hopefully 5 chapters behind. We'll get that caught up the upcoming week.

Hey everyone, 

As many of you know, I am an Australia translator and my country is currently undergoing a terrible crisis, with the worst bushfires burning Australia. People have died, lost their homes and countless wildlife are on the verge of being extinct, and the bushfires don't seem to be ending anytime soon as the hottest summer months are still to come. 

Fortunately, I am currently unaffected so far but I do know some relatives and friends who have lost their homes. I am constantly praying that I don't receive any bad news, though most of them should've evacuated the danger zone. 

I am asking for anyone who has any amount they can spare to consider donating to help those affected. Any amount, no matter how big or small, will be a helpful. If you can't afford it, I hope you can pray and keep us in your thoughts. I will provide links below if you want to consider donating. I'm not sure which ones accept payments from overseas but several of them should accept paypal. 

In addition, I will be volunteering to help...

Hello!

Thanks to a very clear-headed person's comment on ending the translation at the end of a major arc for some "closure", I decided to look for the best (and closest) arc-end to end my work on TXV. Thank you again, random citizen. I low-key love you. And you. And yooooou.

*ahem*

Anyway, as I was saying... I found the end-point and it's... CHAPTER 754. 

SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY-FOUR. Yessssssssssss.  

So, 2019 has been a rough year for me and I was kinda going nutsy-cuckoo. Perhaps 2020 will be better. Time will tell. 


Let's end this public announcement with a cheesy quote. 


"Remember me and smile, for it's better to forget than to remember me and cry."

Hey guys,

Dungeon Predator chapters 1 - 6 are now up. Thanks for all of the feedback thus far. A lot of readers have found progamer to be somewhat confusing, so I've changed it to pro-gamer as per their request.

Happy Laba Festival everyone! There's a saying that the Laba Festival is followed by the Spring Festival, so the celebration of the Laba Festival tells us to start getting ready for the most important festival of the year: the Spring Festival!

Here's something you might want to know about the festival:

The Laba (simplified Chinese: 腊八; traditional Chinese: 臘八; literally: "Eighth of La") is a traditional Chinese holiday celebrated on the eighth day of the La Month (or Layue 臘月), the twelfth month of the Chinese calendar. It is customary on this day to eat Laba Congee. The Laba Festival had not been on a fixed day until the Southern and Northern dynasties, when it was influenced by Buddhism and got a fixed time on the eighth day of twelfth month, which was also the enlightenment day of the Buddha. Therefore, many customs of the Laba Festival are related to Buddhism. It corresponds directly to the Japanese Rohatsu and the South Asian Bodhi Day.

Before the Qin dynasty the Laba festival was a celebration of the new h...

Hey guys, it's only a couple of hours before New Year. 

Just now, I finished today's work, and reviewed my 2019 sitting before the screen. I realized that even though it's probably the busiest year for me, but it's also the happiest. My baby is happy and healthy. My relationship with my wife is stronger than ever. And I'm doing something I love, which is thanks to your support. The list goes on, and I'm very grateful.  

Now, 2020 is coming. New Years marks a new beginning. New people to meet, new adventures to enjoy, and new memories to create. I wish you the best of luck in 2020!

Happy New Year!

Hey guys, wow. It's been almost four years, and we're finally approaching the end. What a journey it has been, with lots of ups and downs, but I'll save that for when we actually get there. For now, this is a notice and reminder to all Legendary and Sub Legendary sponsors to turn off auto-renew as the novel will end for you on January 24th.

Here is the list of dates the novel will end for other tiers.

Legendary - January 24th
Sub Legendary - January 27th
Dark Gold - January 29th
Gold - January 31st
Silver - February 1st
Bronze - February 2nd
Regular - February 3rd

This announcement is coming a bit late for Legendary sponsors as I thought the novel would end on January 27th at the soonest for some reason. So, I apologize for that. If you're unsatisfied about not receiving the full month, feel free to contact me via Discord or Wuxiaworld support for a full refund. To anyone subscribing after this date, depending on the tier, please take note that you may not be getting the full month. I'll hold off on making an translator...

1-1 Update - Cold/flu got worse. Been feeling like utter crap for the past 3 days. I am 5 chapters behind. I will make them up once I get better from this cold or flu. (most likely over the course of 2-3 days) It's been around two weeks since I've been sick. Past 3 days were the worse. I think my family and I should be getting better by the end of this week. Apologies and Happy New Year.

12-29 update - Missing 3 chapters :/

Nightime Update - Got 3 chapters out today, missing 2 chapters.


Apologies everyone. My sons and I fell sick the days before Christmas. Wife fell sick yesterday.

Missing 3 chapters, will try to replace them asap.

Yeah, The Great Ruler is finally finished!

Sadly, I'm back to digging a pit with my editor on our new novel, Physician's Odyssey, despite the fact that we've just finished digging one.

First of all, I would like to apologise to the readers. I know that TGR did not really have a great start as I was still in service back then, and things were really funky around. Yes, I owe you guys an apology.

Now that we're done with the apology, I would like to thank all of you! If it weren't from the constant support, I would never be able to make translating a full-time career. I do appreciate all the sponsors, and especially some of them that have supported us all the way through. Likewise, I've also seen some of the non-sponsor readers sticking with us throughout the whole journey, which I would like to thank you guys as well!

Heh, we just wasted three years of our lives with a novel! Can you actually believe it? We've been working on The Great Ruler for the past 3-4 years!

Then again, the whole journey came with farewells as...
