About the site:

It started off with me wanting to share and give back, but when it comes down to it, the site is just a way for me to motivate myself to learn new things. It started out with translating, then it became coding, then it turned into writing, and now my latest is audio recording and video editing. It's pretty random and I'm liking it.

About the translations:

I translate to make a better reading experience for myself, done according to my own personal standards and preferences. It requires a lot of effort on my part to ensure that my translations stay true to the spirit of the original, and that there aren’t any nonsensical or ambiguous parts.

This means I will condense adjective filled repetition, reposition paragraphs for topical cohesion, and add in lines to connect one paragraph to another, should the break be confusing without a modifier. These changes may be unnecessary in the original language, but it is in my American English.

So, if you want to use my translations to translate into another language, bear that in mind. You won't be translating what the author is writing per say; you'll be translating my interpretation of the story, so it may or may not be what the author intended. Because of this, I strongly recommend using the original unadulaterated version. But if you're going to use this one, then add the below information to your translation.

Author: [author]
Title: [title]
Publication site: [publication site]
Based on the English translation at www.justreads.net


Credit for the translation belongs to the translator, but unless contracts were signed stating otherwise, please understand that a translation is a derivative work and that all copyrights still belong their respective copyright owner(s), usually the author or the publisher.

UPDATES
(Sun) June 30, 2019

1. ATP // OASNG:
Yes there have been more recently, and consistently too. I’ve been trying very hard so hopefully it’s been a good reading experience. I will try to keep it up for the rest of the summer.

2. Rebirth:
Did my first audio for the story. It was acceptable. I see a lot of places for improvement, which I’ll try to incorporate in the next chapter. Will try for one chapter every other week for the summer. Gonna practice audio production and maybe some art work. I’ve been hankering to do some drawing, so maybe shoot for a video before the end of summer. Please no eyerolls. Please no strange faces. I did say this was experimental. Very experimental. Hahah. What the heck. Whatever. If you want to do a more traditional text translation using the raws please feel free. I realize my style is not for most people. You do yours and I’ll do mine and we can all just get along.

3. Qingge:
...

4. Comment:
No longer doing comments at the end of each chapter, instead there's a general one at the bottom of each story. I’m all out of premade files and tables so for now that’s how it is. It’s not hard to create more but it is time consuming, and since comments weren't used much I didn't want to make more. Once I figure out auto notifications it will be back up though. I'm very excited about that. It's on my "to learn" wish list. I’ve also closed out the comments for most of the old chapters. I just did a “find and replace,” so if you spot any strange goobly text, do let me know. I may have just replaced things I didn’t mean to. In general ANY goobly text let me know, 99 out of a 100 it’ll be a “find and replace” gone wrong.

5. Donors:
There’s a shout-out wall on the side panel. Because let's face it, it's a kick seeing your name in places. And since I did that I also did one for comments. LOL. I amuse myself too much with ridiculous things.

6. Close:
It was redundant to have [close] links at the end of each chapter so I won't add them anymore.
