Recently, I’ve read a lot of comments about how my translations were not only slow, but also low quality (not just on this site). Well, I’m afraid I’m about to make you guys even more mad with what I’m about to say (lol). As for the readers who have never complained and have stuck with me for however much time they have (especially the ones who have been toiling through my slow progress since last year), I truly thank you guys. You guys are the ones I truly want to translate for and, if I could, I wish I could email you guys a complete translation of the entire novel right now.
ANYWAYS, bad news is that I’m leaving. Just for a bit though. As in, in a couple of days I’m going to be taking a trip to Europe for a month. Am I quitting? No, just (yet another) hiatus from me.
Immediately, I can smell the question “So does this mean no translations for a month?” coming. The answer to that would be, surprisingly, no. I’m doing my best to translate a bunch of chapters this week which I would share with the admin, ‘translationnations’, of this site. Being as kind as he is, he will help me distribute the chapters throughout the break. I’m estimating maybe…. 1 chapter every 3 days? That’s being optimistic, but I’m 99% sure it will be at a faster rate than 1 per week.
I said I would speed up during summer and now I’m leaving. I would give you guys more in Europe, but I don’t have internet access.
This isn’t going to sound pretty, but I have more stuff to say (not related to the above). I’ve recently been reading stuff about being “monetarily motivated” to translate chapters from a certain blog. I started to accept donations, but I wasn’t sure whether or not that was the right thing to do. I even said that during the summer I would accept cash for more chapters. Now I’m 99% sure I won’t do that. I’ll just receive cash from ads and from those who wish to donate. All of this stuff with money and translations have been pretty sketchy to me in the first place. And one thing I read recently was someone was leaving out content of their translations to get more money, which was just…… sad really.
ON A LIGHTER NOTE: A chapter will come out in a couple hours.
This smiling shiba will now lighten up the mood.
