New TLT Chapter Release! Book 05 – Chapter 156-1

Hello guys, TLT is back again (for now). During my move to Germany (which will be in July if nothing goes wrong anymore), I might be going in short hiatus again, but hopefully afterward, things will be more stable, especially since there will be less disturbance (no more internet problems, no more worrying about papers, etc).

So, without further delay, here’s your new TLT chapter.

Enjoy..

The Legendary Thief Chapter 156-1

As always, please comment on the story, reading your comments really would make my day.

P.S. New ALBT will also come in a few days.

News – 29.04.16 – Updates on… a lot of things!

News update:

  1. First of all, sorry to have kept you all in the dark without any updates for quite a while.
  2. Basically, my hands are still quite full with many matters, but I try to do everything in my spare time.
  3. Regarding the Novel Rankings: I’m trying my best to automate things with the charts. When everything is done, I won’t need much time with that and can give more time for translations. But in the meantime, I want to finish the scripts first because of other matter regarding TLT and ALBT too (which I explain below).
  4. Yes, it’s true that because of doing Novel Rankings, I neglected my translations, but this is also done for the long run. Things could have been faster done if only the hosting service provides better things. The applications they provide are so old and limited, that I have problems in implementing the scripts that I have prepared in my computer to run on the server. How old? Consider this example: how would you respond if one of your friends/relatives are still using computers using a Windows 98? Yeah, I’m talking about that old in comparison. They use application with version so old, that actually I don’t think anyone is still using them. Plus, the libraries they provide are so limited, that I have to work around for almost every little thing (Even stranger, the hosting provides database, but no libraries to connect with it from the application, which really pisses me like hell. And I have to do it locally in my computer, then later manually import it at the server). So I have no other choice but to learn other programming language that are more supported by the server and then combining the process. If it wasn’t for this, I would have finished doing this weeks ago.
  5. However, I’m almost done with those things. I’ve manage to solve the problems with each part. Now, I only need to put it all together as one big complete part.
  6. And while I was trying to do all those things, I’ve actually learned a lot of new things that will benefit everyone in the long run. I will also implement the new things here at Lingson Translation some day.
  7. Now, regarding TLT: There’s some complication with TN, and I’m planning to move TLT back to my site. So, there might still be some delay before I post the new chapters.
  8. Regarding ALBT: currently Deathblade is really busy with his translations (thus, also resulted in the late release of the weekly charts in NovelRankings), and since he’s editing ALBT (more than just editing actually. He also help me with the wording especially with the fighting scenes), I don’t want to push him too much with ALBT, and since I’m currently also focusing on NovelRankings, thus, the delay.
  9. No promises, but I’ll post some new chapters in May. It will be until I have finally moved to Germany before I can really translate and release regularly. There are so many unknown and disturbing factors while I’m still here. As you also know, I’m planning to get a Master degree later in Germany for being a teacher. So, I’m also currently preparing applications for the university. In addition to that, the internet connection here is getting worse and worse, and it won’t make any sense to switch provider now that I will already be leaving for Germany in a few months from now.
  10. Last but not least, I will post a new publication at Lingson Translation. However, this new publication is not really a translation, but an original work by my 17 years old daughter. Is it good? Honestly, I can’t answer that (not because I don’t want to since she’s my daughter) because I also don’t know how the story will evolves. But I can say for sure, that grammatically, it’s very well written and should be really easy to understand for everyone. And I really think that she’s talented in the field, only lack for experience (well, this is her father speaking LOL). The genre of this work is Fantasy/Sci-fy. Comments for her would be greatly appreciated to help her improve her work. The title is “The Tales of New Earth” and the pace will be about 1-2 chapters weekly. I will publish it in a day or two.

Thank you guys for listening to my rambling and being patience with my delay.

Special Announcement – 1st Anniversary & Others

Hey guys,

I’m sorry I have to disappoint you with still no TLT or ALBT chapters coming. I will still be busy for this coming week, but I think it should be finish by next week. So, consider this a notice from me in case you are all wondering when the next chapter is going to come. Please be patient.

However, I have some announcement for you:

First, today is the one year anniversary of this site. One year ago, on April 2nd 2015, this site was officially launched for Lingson Translation. And during this one year, although I’ve had many setbacks, but I counted that I have released 155 TLT chapters and 43 ALBT chapters, totalling 198 chapters altogether. I know, compared to other translators, it’s not really a lot, but in average, it’s about 1 chapter every 2 days. WHICH, I plan to do more during this second year.

Secondly,some of you might be wondering if I’m going to continue with the novel rankings, because there hasn’t been any updates lately too. And if you are following posts on WW, you might also notice that Deathblade also post novel rankings on a weekly base, differentiating the type of ranking he posted. And perhaps you also noticed that he mentioned my name too on those posts, that’s because Deathblade and I are working together on that project.

And even with all the busy schedule I’ve had during these two weeks, I manage to do something regarding this novel ranking stuffs. This project of Deathblade and I, we decided to put it on its own site. So, with the timing of this 1st Anniversary of Lingson Translation, I proudly present to you a new site where you can look for Chinese novel rankings: NovelRankings.com

Are there any difference between the posts on WW and NovelRankings.com? Yes, in a small way.

  • WW will currently still get priority, so for the charts that are going to be released on that week on WW, it will be posted there first (well, currently, WW has more readership, so it’s only logical that WW gets its exclusiveness). But, those charts will also still be available on NovelRankings.com afterward.
  • The charts on NovelRankings.com will be more complete and have more titles in the list compared to the post in WW. However, because the list in WW is shorter, all the Chinese titles in the list posted on WW will already be translated, while the list on NovelRankings.com will still have titles only in their Pinyin (those untranslated titles will be translated eventually).
  • One and the most important difference between the post on WW and NovelRankings.com is that the charts on NovelRankings.com will have an extra column to display their ranking change compared to their previous position (of course, this only applies to the charts that already have a previous period chart, for example: the Trending Ranking). I can proudly say that even the original charts on Qidian didn’t have this feature on their chart. With this, you can easily see how quickly a novel rise or fall during that period (which of course, you can check manually were this feature not available), so it kind of shows how its popularity moves.

One of the purpose of providing the rankings to you is in the hope that it will give you ideas of what novel will be interesting to translate or read, whether you’re a translator already, translator wannabe, or just a reader who loves Chinese novels.

So, in complement with that purpose, lastly, the final announcement is that I’m providing a new “Raw-Providing Service”. In short, I’m offering my service to provide you the raws in bulk. More details, you can read it in the “Service” section from the menu or by clicking here.

I won’t say anything else anymore, and without further delay please go check the new site:

NovelRankings.com

P.S. For all of you who have left me a message to help me with editing or proofreading, I really appreciate your offer. But because of all this documents thing that I’m currently trying to finish, it will be still a while before I get back to translating. So, it will also be a while before I can reply to it.

Fear the Assassin, read ALBT Chapter 0043

Assasin Landlord Beauty Tenants

It’s going to be another busy week rally. Well, I just want to get things done ASAP here so I can finally move to Germany, hopefully before summer. So, I’m basically currently racing with time. If I delay a day for a process at certain office, the whole process might get delayed two or three days. So, a delay for several days might result in delays for several weeks.

Last time, I said that I had new plans for my translations schedule. Initially, it has also something to do with ALBT schedules because I plan to increase the number of chapters released. But because of the “unexpected” finish of the recognition process (of course I want it to be finished, but because it had taken so long, I had kind of already lost hope that it will be finish soon), and I need to proceed with the next document process, I need to delay things for my translations for a while. If things go well, it should only take two more weeks of my time. After that, it will be the “waiting period” again.

Enough of my rant, as promised earlier, here’s your new ALBT chapter. Please enjoy.
