Another translation??

Hi everyone

Now that 'Love me if you dare' is coming to an end,  I am contemplating on translating another novel. Another one of Ding Mo's novels perhaps?  Her other 2 crime novels are 'When a snail loves' and 'Memory lost'.   But I am quite sure there's already translation for them.

I am not as keen on her si-fi novels.

Is anyone interested to read 'City of Mercy'?
http://www.books.shushengbar.com/?p=4328 for more details.

Or does anyone have any other suggestions? Does not need to be Ding Mo.  But bear in mind that I am not a fan of fantasy / Sci-fi novels.  And I don't think my English is good enough to translate a historical novel...  :)

(And for the new book, I don't think I can sustain a daily update.  It will more likely be 2-3 chapters a week)  

TB

PS. btw, the last chapter for LMFYD is 84.  Then, there will 2 more chapters on Fu Ziyu's story, and 4 more chapters on the various side stories.

    1. Memory Lost is translated here http://cnovels.bookbychapters.com/memory-lost-chapter-1/

  3. I would like you to translate Memory lost but there's already one. It's unfortunate because your translation speed and style are great. If you like this kind of criminal psychological romance, how about this? http://www.books.shushengbar.com/?p=6858

  9. I've been lurking on your translations and just wanted to thank you for your excellent quality of work! I generally go for period stories, but since that's out, I like your suggestion. Or anything else with mobsters is cool really.

  26. Can you please translate the complete chapters from "when a snail love" by the same author. I already read 32 parts of the story from another translator and it's still incomplete (tiffyisland I believe). I'm so anxious and dying to know what happens next. There are 60 chapters I believe. Can you please accept this request of mine to continue translating this wonderful story. It would really make my day and I would really be thankful for it.

    2. No, tiffy is still doing it. She's doing a fundraiser for the elderly in her country which is pretty awesome if you ask me. But she is still planning on completing the series. If you've only read up to ch 32, you're in for a bit of a surprise. Go check it out 😆

  32. TB, I had just read chapter 1 of Don’t Turn from Summer (莫负寒夏) by Ding Mo translated by jollymerry and it seemed interesting. It seemed that she's not planning to translate the rest of the novel. So I am suggesting this one for your next project ^^

    3. Yes, does look interesting. have not read it yet. Will have a look at it tonight :) thanks for the suggestion.

  33. Could you please translate Star-Drift by Ding Mo it seems so interesting..

    ReplyDelete
  34. City of Mercy has a triad male lead? Reading the summary at Shusheng bar makes me feel nervous that the story might have too much angst. I feel a bit conflicted since I like "bad boys."

    There's also Don't Turn from Summer, also by Ding Mo, that @Afufu suggested. The chapter and the summary seems interesting. But it seems like the novel not completed and currently ongoing?

    Nutella wrote a summary for it here:
    https://orangeblossomdreams.wordpress.com/2015/11/26/breaking-good-news-and-a-question/

    I would say check out the first couple of chapters and choose whichever series you like the best or think is better.

  35. TB i want to thank you for translating this novel as fans we can't do anything to repay your kindness we could only cheer on you and say thank i would love if you translate Memory Lost iam in love it just reading 6 ch but i don't think the translator is not willing to continue because it long and wish you pick it up but i will love anything you pick but with happy ending

  36. I'm sure I'll like whatever you translate.. Thanks in advance!! You are the best!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. How about "Don’t Turn from Summer"?
    It's the novel that written by Ding Mo as well and the male protagonist is quite similar to BJY (in my opinion). I think the plot and the characters seem interesting. So, I would recommend this novel for your next project! :D

    Thank u sooo much for your dedication and hard-working!
    LOVE! <3

  38. There's also 你和我的倾城时光 by 丁墨. Someone started translating it but it seems to have been dropped.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I read the first chapter of Don’t Turn from Summer and really like it!! http://www.lwxsw.org/books/25/25344/ I think this is the link to the novel. Unfortunately I can’t read Chinese, and Google translate is not understandable! So i would be very thankful if u translate it! (^-^)b

  40. I'm all for "City of Mercy", but whatever you choose will be just fine. And two chapters a week is excellent. You have quite accumulated a bunch of followers now, girl.

  41. I vote for Don't Turn From Summer by Ding Mo. No body picked the translation until now, though chapter 1 already posted in SunShowerField blog. It's said the chapter 1 translation is a teaser to attract any other translator to pick the project.

    I'll be thankful if you make this book as your next project. Btw, enjoy your holiday for one more week :D
