you don't have to say sorry. It's not as if I was blaming you. I also know how interesting this novel, so I thought it would better for you to wait the translation instead of asking spoilers.

Oh I see, I thought you got upset from somehow mistaken my post as dissing this LN or that I was rushing you to do the translation.

Well since we have clear the misunderstanding, I would act as requested and wait patiently for the translation and not ask for any spoilers............................... just yet.

As a fan of the series, if you do go ahead with it, I'd like to request that you take some extra time to be careful with your translation, as larethian suggested you do for Mahouka. (For those of you who can't read this without a translation, I'm not suggesting he not do it all, only that he be a bit more careful when doing so.)

For reference, this is what he said:

I looked over your translation, and these are my comments:
- less than 10% are obvious mis-translations, and it's usually due to more advanced grammar coupled with long sentences
- about 5% appear to be careless mistakes (missing words and stuff)
- the rest are incomprehensible English and bad word-choices, and at least half the time for those cases, I'm not sure whether
a. you really understood the context of the text but just have difficulty in English word choice
b. or just did 'first dictionary-returned word-for-word substitution' without understanding the text.
Though judging from how you decipher some tricky grammar correctly, I'm guessing it's a mix of both (or luck :lol.

Anyway, a large proportion of the text is way too indecipherable for the Editors to actually work on them. They can't fix, improve by rephrasing or selecting better word choice if they cannot even understand what you are writing, since they can't cross-check the raws like me. So I want to request you to actually go through your work again and make it into proper English as much as possible. I've re-worked and re-translated several parts up to page 106 (I feel it's taking up my time so I don't feel like doing it anymore :lol. Please shout out if you actually have issues with the raw sentences.

Yeah, you're right, but this time, before posting, I will have denormative look at it. We have decided so. And since it's a novel I decide to translate from the beginning, I I'll take time to read my translation over and over (Since I have now time). So, this time, I think you don't have to worry.

I see you're finally getting started, so some thoughts on the names. Also see this.
  • It should be "Lester" and not "Leicester". They have the same pronunciation, but the former is a person's name; the latter, the name of a place. They have similar origins, so there's no problem there.
  • "Alulucant" sounds pretty terrible in English. Unless you have a strong reason for keeping it, you should really change it to something else. (My best guess is along the lines of "Allekant", but there's equally no basis for what it; I just think it looks better =P)
  • I think "Lewolf" is more likely "Le Wolfe".
  • Your original idea of "Queen Veil" seems to be right. (The emblem of their school shows an upright woman with something vaguely veil-like trailing after her.)
  • "Ernest Kuhne" is definitely "Ernesta Kühne".
  • "Water Academy City" should be "Megafloat University Town" (lolololol).
  • Rather than "come into bloom", doesn't 咲き誇れ mean something more along the lines of "Bloom proudly/brilliantly"?

If anyone can make sense of the other emblems, it might help in determining what the school names are supposed to be.

Thanks, it helps a lot. And it would be better that you directly edit the Names you are sure of the Translation on BT.

I gave c1 a once over with some TLC from the Chinese. No promises on accuracy (because this is J-C-E). All in all, pretty well done. No offense, but it's a lot better than your past translations; the effort that went into it clearly shows through.

@ setsuna86, I checked BT page for Gakusen Toshi Asterisk, I see you figure out how to upload novel illustrations, sorry I wasn't much help.

I know. That's why it was 'really'?

Gakusen will be slow for now, I suppose.
