Translator Announcements

Afterthought

Here it is, the end of Infinite Competitive Dungeon Society.

It has been about 11 months since I started ICDS and what a journey it has been. I’ve learned a lot about translating during the series and I would most certainly do some things differently if I had to translate everything again. 

To be completely honest, when I first started reading ICDS long before I started its translation, I dropped it after about 60 chapters (though it was mostly because of Toika’s Japanese-like MC; I even dropped Everyone is a Returnee after 200 chapters haha). I actually wanted to do Possessing Nothing, but another translator picked it up a few days before I could (heh). 

Anyhow, before I talk about the next series I'm doing, I would like to first give my gratitude to everyone below. 

1) My editors, IllidanStormrage and LightningAsura, who helped me out for the past 250 chapters, and my old editor Jay, who edited the first 100 chapters. Here are the finishing thoughts of my two current editors:

Hello!

Condemning the Heavens book 2 - Blood of the Army, has been released on Amazon.

Thank you so much for reading my story. It truly means a lot to me that someone is enjoying what I write. 

Writing has become a part of my daily life. I love writing and I am so humbled and amazed by the fact that someone enjoys reading what I write. Thank you, everyone, you are all, every single person of you, very important to me. 

I hope that I can take this story to become better and better, take it to become a story that evolves and engages the reader.

I hope that my writing will also improve while writing this story. I realize that although I have been writing for some time, I am still a beginner when it comes to conveying what I wish to say the right way. 

When it comes to improving, my team is truly amazing! They work so well with me and are able to help me improve my writing. It can already be seen when it comes to grammatical errors and so on, but they also help me greatly behind the scenes with capturing plotholes, making...

Hey fellow Linmaniacs, in celebration of the on-going move to in-house patreon, I’ve decided to hold a prize contest.

The contest is to create Magic the Gathering cards or DnD stat templates of at least five different characters and/or objects from Martial World.  Also, one of them must be Lin Ming! (And you can also choose other similar templates if you’d like as long as they are close enough.)  The two people with the best entries will win your choice of either a Nintendo Switch or Playstation 4!

This contest will continue until June 17th and at that time we’ll look through the entries and select the winners!

Feel free to post entries in the comments.

Examples are like this and this

Hey guys, I'm back. 

I've mostly recovered from the flu, just a persistent cough that's hanging in there. For those telling me to rest, I will have plenty of that soon.

As I mentioned earlier, I will be going overseas from the 12th June - 30th June. Chapters will still be coming out during that time, but at a much lower rate than before. I'm still unsure of that exact timing because it all depends on how the Internet works over there. 

For people who have sponsored chapters, please keep this in mind when subscribing or renewing your subscription.

Hi everyone, Legion here! We've completed the transition to in-house. So, there will be no more advance chapters on patreon, but it'll remain open for pure donations. We've also increased the advance chapter counts effective today. Thanks for all the support! ^_^

Heads up to all readers of Infinite Competitive Dungeon Society. 

There are 5 chapters left to be released of ICDS, which will all come out tomorrow along with my afterthought. 

Thank you all for reading until now and stay tuned for the finale!!

EDIT: Launching early put enough pressure on me to make it stable at 100+ since yesterday! XD

Hi everyone,

The Talisman Emperor tier for sponsors has been launched. It's going to have a minimum of 100 advanced chapters and an infinite maximum. That means everyone will be able to stay ahead of the latest published chapter by a minimum of 100 chapters.
I'm launching this tier a tad bit earlier, so it only contains 97 chapters right now, and I'll be able to maintain a guaranteed amount of 100+ by the end of the week. (It will actually hit 100 by the end of the day, but I expect myself to be busy tomorrow, so it might drop to 99 before I can push it back to 100+ on Sunday and maintain it at 100+ with certainty.)

Enjoy and thanks for the support!!! :D

Sick with the flu. Don't know how long it will take to recover but should just be a few days. Chapters will be made up.

Hey guys! City of Sin early access is now completely set up on WW, and Patreon advance chapters will be stopped from June onwards. The Patreon will stay up, but from now it will only be a donation system with no more early access like we currently provide. Anyone looking at early access, please use the subscription system in-house instead. As always, thanks for your readership and support!

by OMA

Hey Y'all. UTS has finally been moved fully in-house now. Thanks for the continued support throughout the time I've been here, and I hope you'll all be with me as we journey along Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong's adventures!


Feel free to send me any messages on the Discord if you have any queries!

Hi guys and girls!!
All the TE chapters for the In-House advanced chapter system have been uploaded.
There will be one final tier addition in another 2 weeks, and this tier will provide full access to every single chapter I have just minutes after I complete work on it.
Thanks for supporting me so far, and let's enjoy Chen Xi's journey together! XD

EDIT 11/5 : Forgot to get site credits enabled. They work now. :)

It's a numbing yet bittersweet feeling sitting here moments after posting the final chapter of a novel I love so much.

WDQK has been a part of my life for a long time. It's one of the few things so far that I've given so much to, only to receive so much more in return. WDQK has accompanied me through some of the happiest and most testing moments of my life, and one thing I can say for sure is that I'll never regret picking it up back then.

Enough about myself, WDQK would never have been possible without the support of each and everyone of your dear readers who have so kindly decided to walk along beside us from our early days of constant site crashes till today...

Thank you guys :')
You guys are the heroes we never deserved.

before I get too side tracked, here's Law's afterthoughts


Hey all you WDQK fans,

Wow, can't believe it has been three years since we first started. Really glad (and kinda sad) that we were able to make it to the end. It has been an awesome wild ride and we could have never done it without all your...

Ok an update on whats going to happen over May so people aren't too confused. First of all I have a wedding to go to on Sunday so I'll be on the road all day tomorrow and all of Sunday will be the wedding. Following that we will be driving home (5-6hr drive) from midnight and get home Monday morning. Monday I have a project and presentation at  5pm (why we rushing back). Finally I have one more final Wed morning.

With that school ends but follow that I have a trip back to China. First time since I moved to US so going to visit lot family to visit. That will be from 5/10-5/17. So my schedule for the next 2 week is really crammed. Don't expect any chapters this weekend. I'll get some stuff out on Monday to Weds. As for when I'm in China I'm not really sure what my internet situation will be so if I can I'll get work done. But there well be a lot once I get back coz summer break and all.

Now as everyone know we are moving from patreon to in house. As stated above I'm really too busy to deal with it until after I return...

Hey guys,

I have been ridiculously busy this two years. Perhaps the first six months was fine but when time past, I started to struggle with translations. However, I did not want to give that up as it was something that I enjoyed doing. But now, I will be announcing the standardised amount of chapters that you guys will be expecting and what will be going on in the next few months.

One of it will be that I will be translating full-time. There will be at least 5 chapters a week with 10 advanced chapters available for sponsor till mid June. Perhaps in between now till then I might released a few extra chapters here and there but the minimum chapters for a week to expect will be 5.

As I'm still pretty much busy till mid June. After mid June, I intend to speed things up a little like how I was doing two years ago. I will be releasing 10-14 chapters/week. (I'll plan my working schedule again since I'm going to translate full-time.)

PS: Advanced Chapters will also be made available on Patreon for this month and will cease...

First, thank you, everyone, who has supported me throughout the years. I am so happy to have people like you who enjoy reading the stories I so enjoy writing. 

When I began writing, I just did it as a hobby where I thought it would be amusing to let my imagination run wild. Back then I often dreamt about one day publishing my work and sit with an actual copy of my books in my hands. This was a dream I never dared believe would come true, but after being encouraged by my friends to try and publish my books, things started to move towards my dream.

It is now a little more than two years since I published my first book and I wanted to do something I always dreamt about. The last couple of months I have been working with digital artists to have the spine and backs made for the books, I read through all the books once more to find as many mistakes as I could, and I even went to a professional editor. 

Now that everything has been prepared, it is time to share the books with the rest of you. If you like Blue Phoenix,...

Dear patreons, AST will be shifting to in-house patreon starting from June. During the month of May, we will be gradually transiting over.


AST started on 29 January 2016, and if we count till today...our team has been translating AST for about twenty-eight months.  We started with a release of 3 chapters per week... As more people join the team, we increase the chapter count to 5... to 7... to 10... (this was considered crazily fast back then but a relatively normal pace given the standards today) and gradually to 15. 


But then again, many in my team are busy with reel life,  we have no choice but to drop the chapter release rate back to 12 per week. Rest assured, we are now trying to build up our stockpile and will definitely increase the release rate to 15 or even more once again once we have a healthier amount of chapters in the stockpile.


All in all, we just want to thank you all for the support in terms of either supportive emails, viewership, donations or pledges these past years. We are now about 900 chapters...

Hello friends! I really do hate to post nowadays since there are limited spots on the front page, but I felt that this was something all of you should know about.

As you all should know, last month, I did 14 releases of both Perfect World and Demon Hunter. This was a somewhat spur of the moment decision after reading all of your comments (yes, I do read them >.<), but I believe that I can maintain this pace for both novels, as this is what is considered 'normal' for wuxiaworld translators nowadays. 

Before I continue, I decided that I was going to take a short, week-long hiatus. This is due to a variety of factors, from getting a breather from the new pace, to some things that I was waiting on rwx to get back to me on. 

For those of you who were kind enough to support me on Patreon, thank you so, so much for doing so. Because Patreon uses the first day of every month to process pledges, everything should be posted by tomorrow!

by Pika

Hey guys, i'm starting a migration right now for advance chapters from patreon to the wuxiaworld site so that it's easier for everyone! Jaspaaar is currently away this week so the last tier won't be fully available until he returns to edit the chapters. Sponsoring Martial World will give you access to advance chapters! 

Once again, I thank all Linmaniacs for your generous support these past couple of couple of years. Without you all, I don't think I would have made it this far. I look forwards to finishing this story with all of you!

Volume 6 - Hundred Refinements Ordinary Realm is finished now.

We are now starting Volume 7 - Return Of The Discarded Child with chapter 2673.

Greetings, the chapter 400 event turned out to be a success. Seeing you describe your favorite scenes or characters from LOAR gives me a great sense of accomplishment as the translator. Thank you all for participating in this little contest, and I'm very happy that so many of you like this novel and my work. 

Enough said, congratulations, thelightsyde, DaoistThreelives, DimmyZ. You are the winners. Please give me your email addresses or email me at [email protected] in three days, and I'll grant you access to to my stockpile.

Once again, thank you all for your support. I'll continue to do my best to provide you with high quality translation of this novel as well as contents about Chinese culture and language.  


P.S. As one of the few native Chinese in WW translator community, it's my pleasure to introduce you to knowledge I find interesting and useful about Chinese culture and language. Since the introduction to animal-related idoms is coming to an end, I'll see what else I can introduce to you, or you can message...
