      Hey! I was wondering if you are still going to translate BTTC because it has been a while. And I tried to find it after maybe 50th chapter one of the translator said u were gonna do it so...

        -our best to give active, regular updates. We will no longer be going MIA, as that is also not our wish, and truthfully makes us very miserable as well.

        I’m not on NU very often so apologies to those who might try to contact me here. If anybody wants to contact us/know about recent updates, please visit my Twitter. Thank you all for your patience.

      Heyyy, I don't mean to rush you but I was just wondering if you're still the one who's going to translate breaking through the clouds? Cuz you know, it's been a while now

        Just make a pick up request thread if there's no news of it being picked up or continued, but make sure it's been 3 months since the lasest chapter update.

        Hello, sorry I don’t really go on NU often. I’m aware that many people are concerned, and I’m very sorry for the delay. I’m just here to inform you that our group has already started working on it. Rest assured, we’ll be getting to Arc 2 by the end of the year.

      Good news! SAYE's original translator and I have talked things over + agreed to co-translate the book. Please look forward to more updates!

      If anybody has any objections to me translating 吞海, please say so now. I don't want to start translating just to stop at the last minute...

        Dude they posted an average of 1.5 chapters in a month. If you can update faster than they do, I'm pretty sure a majority of them would switch over. Sure the translator might berate you on their site, but unless they're holding translation rights over the novel, I don't see why you can't. NU doesn't forbid competitions. Don't adopt such a pushover attitude. You won't survive in society without thick skin.

        True... I just don't want too much bad attention when I literally just entered NU. I'll give them a week to reply to me (they offered to co-tl, but I said I would only agree if they could give regular updates), if they don't reply + don't post, I'll just go ahead anyway. This way, people can't fault me for snatching a project when the translator has "come back".

        Good on you to finally gather your resolve. It's a hard decision yes but in the viewpoint of a reader, was it right for the tl-r to suddenly disappear without any heads up? or for them 2 prevent another tl-r who can probably update more frequently from picking it up? If you firmly believe that you can do the novel and readers justice by giving it stable updates and good quality tl, then there's no harm in doing it.

      The previous translator has come back a day before I planned to post. In the meantime, I'm considering picking up 吞海 as my personal project.

        5 months. I gave them a heads up and they didn't reply so I announced I would post on March 1st.

        Wow how rude. I don’t like sketchy translators like that. The timing of it makes it looks like they did it on purpose~

      UPDATE: SAYE is definitely picked up and I have contacted and am waiting for the previous translator to reply. Expect an update in 2 weeks~

      I am thinking of translating SAYE (撒野) which hasn't been updated in around 5 months. However, I don't know how to contact the translator...

      I was wondering how to take over a project... What are the rules? Am I supposed to contact the previous translator directly? How?

        Hi! You can check out the NU policies on how to add your releases https://www.novelupdates.com/nu-policy/ It would be appropriate behavior to contact translators whether you can continue off where they left, but in the case that they don't respond, you are free to continue where they left as long as you abide by the policies~

        selective numbing is suggested, as improvement!
