Wow, honestly, I never thought all of you would rate my translation that high. I feel like my translation lack vocabularies since I keep using the same words over and over. I did run my translations through five online spell / grammar checking tools before I release the translations to ensure the draft would be of a good quality. I try to make sure that even a 6-7 grader could understand it. But still, I’m not satisfy with my writing 😀 So Thank you very much!
Since I’m releasing a chapter every day during weekend, I think that I will change the function of the ‘Progress’ page. So I would only put information regarding the editing/cleaning progress. Otherwise the page would be too clumped. As for the weekly chapter releases, I put a small progress bar on the right side of this website (which I’m sure all of you have already noticed yet). Apology for my mistake in the numbers (it’s 4/5 where it should be 3/5. When I write 4/5, I already counted today’s release. So don’t worry, with today’s release, it’s still 4/5) 🙂
As for my throat, it’s getting worse. I couldn’t do my work because of that, but fortunately, for the translating, I only need to sit down in front of my laptop. Although I couldn’t concentrate too long since I feel my head is spinning all the time. So if it’s getting even worse tomorrow, I might postpone the last weekly chapter to Saturday. I hope you could understand.
Last thing on the news update, you might notice there is a new menu item: ‘Donation’. Honestly, I don’t feel like doing it, but I’m kind of in a ‘desperate’ situation (well, ok, that was a little exaggerated). The details are in the ‘Donation’ page. The short version: my daughter’s birthday is coming up soon, and I’m still short of the fund to buy her the present she wants(which she had been asking since last year already). This is also one reason that I have to do several side jobs and lately my days are quite hectic (I’m a teacher, so I do tuition for side jobs).
I also don’t want you pitying me, so consider it as a help and appreciation for this translation, and I would also give you something back in return. So for every $30 in the donation pool collected, I would do an extra chapter release for that week (but please limit only one extra chapter per day – equals 5 extra chapters in a week. I don’t want to promise something that I couldn’t deliver, and that is the maximum I could deliver for now. Consider it as a substitution for the side jobs.).
Please keep in mind that this would in no way affect the regular translations and quality of the weekly chapters. The regular and extra chapters would both still have the same translation quality like the current translation. So this is pure donation wise, no pressure at all. Donate if you want, ignore if you don’t. But I would really appreciate even the smallest donation, no matter what amount you donate.
Thank you , thank you and thank you again for all the support that you have given.
As always, your support is my motivation!
P.S. Chapter 18 is translated. I’m currently checking the spelling/grammar. It would be released in less than one hour from now.
