Machine Translator: Shif
Editors: Argos Yesu

 

Hello readers. Argos and Shif here.

As some may have noticed, Armored Raven is picking up the novel from the beginning. No, the story wasn’t poached. Shif and I started the project knowing that we’d have to drop it if anything weird happens with it. If a decent TLer wishes to pick it up, then that’s fine. But I guess the major problem here was when the Qidian people emailed us and sent us panicking left and right.

While we weren’t told to drop the story, we already figured that it wouldn’t be good to continue our MTL. Also, in the hierarchy of things, people view TL as a more legit form than MTL. Doesn’t matter if our decisions are right or wrong, we’re just MTL. Meh…

For readers thinking we dropped the novel because of Armored Raven, that’s a mistake. Shif told me a few days ago that this transition would happen, so us dropping the novel wasn’t a reaction. Don’t worry about that.

As for what we’ll do now; Shif says he’ll continue his MTL , but with novels outside of Qidian. As for me, I’m still editing for RadiantTL and one novel on WW (which is basically a Radiant novel but I’m cheating here… my name is on the thing, so…).

Anyways, hope you guys like the retranslated chapters done by Armored Raven. To be honest, I also think they need a major overhaul. Wonder how many of the terms Shif and I decided upon would actually be used by Raven~~

This is the final chapter Shif and I will do. Enjoy.

Shif’s thoughts:

I decided to MTL the novel because I wanted the novel to have more exposure so that a lot of people would appreciate it. At the same time, I am also hoping a decent translator would pick it up. It took almost half a year before someone did, and I’m really thankful that this happened.

We’re not dropping the novel because another translator had picked it up, as stated earlier. A Qidian/Yuewen staff sent us an email and it’s about a cooperation on going legally translating the novel under them. Unfortunately, I don’t understand the Chinese language very well.

Since that was the case, the staff politely told me that I can continue the MTL, but that I should stop doing so once they launch their translation project. With that, I had already talked with Argos about dropping the novel and just release the remaining MTL’ed chapters slowly (putting aside the fact that I’m really busy this season).

Although they still allowed us to continue the MTL until they launch their translation project, I feel that I should go out as early as possible to be able to have the time to MTL another novel that I really like.I had already asked the translation group that had stopped translating it for about half a year now that I intend to MTL it. They had given me a go signal.

My goal is the same as what I had for Bringing the Farm to Live in Another World. More exposure and a chance that a decent translator would pick it up.

With that, I would like you all to support the new translator, Armored Raven. More importantly, don’t forget to thank Argos Yesu for all the handwork he had given for this project. You might not know, but without him, our translations wouldn’t be half as good as it is now.

I thank all the readers who had supported us all through this past 6 months. It was enjoyable and it has been a pleasure. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.
