Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 20

Well, forget about what I said on Thursday, it was vetoed because this chapter is so short!

Oh, before I forgot, I went and created a Wikia page for Demon Sword Maiden, but alas… I have no idea how Wikia works and wasted a whole lot of time on it. If anyone’s free and knows how to use Wikia, please help me fill up the glossary page~ Thanks

Thoughts of the day:
Shorter chapter = harder to translation

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 19

I played with the website coding and messed up, so I spent one day going over the error with my web developer and learned some basic web management skill from him. And remember how I mentioned that I sold my 8-year-old laptop last week? Yup, you probably guessed it already, I just got myself a new custom-build PC, so I ended up spending another day setting up my new desktop.

With two days wasted on something other than translating, I might not be able to do more chapter this week.

Thoughts of the day:
Never touch anything you do not understand.

[Teaser] Dragon Princess

Do not doubt me when I say this teaser is really just a teaser, there is not even a tenth of one full chapter translated. It is merely a teaser and nothing more! Now that you’ve been warned, time to move on to the next agenda, the introduction of this novel.

Firstly, this is a Gender Bender, I think, maybe? I found this novel purely by accident, the cover picture is nice, and the title kind of intrigued me. The full title of this novel is actually: I will make a Harem even if I become a cute Dragon Girl

Anyways, I am not going to make this a full project or anything, my main project will remain as Demon Sword Maiden, I will only translate this during my free time, 1 paragraph at a time, so expect really slow releases. However, if anyone wants to pick up this project, I’d be really delighted~

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 18

You know, I am quite bummed when I found out the novel page of Demon Sword Maiden is not indexed in the front page of Google when I searched for the keyword. Instead, what showed up on the first page were pages from content thieves and the announcement posts. I wonder how many potential readers I’ve already lost to the thieves. 🙁

Heck, even after going through the 2nd to 5th pages, I still don’t see it indexed anywhere. Instead, I found the novel page which I haven’t officially published on Ziru’s Musings already showing up on the 2nd page, how did that even happen? >.<

When you pick up a new hobby, you have to give up on another.
I picked up translating and I have to sacrifice my time for my family and the time to indulge in my other hobbies such as gaming, and reading novels.

A free translation isn’t really “free”, think of the time, dedication, and sweat the translators pour into their work before you say or do anything potentially harmful. Most people take free translations for granted and demand for more, but they never once considered the work put behind the translations.

Correction:
Changed Dynasty to Empire since I felt that it’s more fitting in a fantasy setting

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 16

Did anyone read the news yet? If not, you should head over there and give it a quick read. The short of it; is that I will be hosting with Ziru’s Musings starting next month.

Thoughts of the day:
So apparently, my Engrish sucks in the eyes of native English speaker. Do you guys think so too? Is it really so bad that I need to hire an editor?

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 15

So many things happened last week… so many things indeed. I had to plow the hard-as-rock earth and hurt my left thumb in the process. I had to clean the sewer and scraped my right thumb in the process. I bumped into a rock and scraped my right leg, this one really hurts. And then I sold my 8-year-old laptop for 200 bucks. Yup… more than half of these events end up with me being hurt in the process, ouch!

Thoughts of the day:
I never knew I was THIS clumsy… I’m really not cut out for physical labor…

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 14

This chapter took more time than expected to translate due to all the unfamiliar terms, like the shikigami or Daruma Egg. I mean… I do know what they are, it’s just that the terms in Chinese are ambiguous. Had to ask around and look for references.

Correction:

Changed tael to ryo
Apparently, tael is the unit used by Chinese, ryo is the Japanese equivalent of tael.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 13

Wow… just wow… I actually… got a patron, and two to boot!!! 😮
Thank you, you guys are awesome! But take note that the chapters in Patreon are unedited and without footnotes.
Not that I do that much editing when publishing it here anyways, the most I do are correcting some typos and changing the sentence structure so that they flow more smoothly.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 7

For the first time in forever, I finally went and summed up all the raw chapters available for Demon Sword Maiden, and wow am I surprised!

There’s a whopping 1759 Chapters available, and it is still ongoing. Moreover, only 172 of those chapters are available for free. The rest are put behind a paywall. But well, I guess with 172 free chapters, it would be enough to last us for at least a good year.
