    Hi guys, I'm looking for a dedicated editor.
    Requirements:
    • native English speaker with rich vocabulary,
    • a gmail account,
    • a decent understanding of modern English literature and passion in fantasy novels,
    • the capability to notice and correct spelling mistakes, grammar mistakes, wrong tense, etc. written by a non-native English speaker (i.e. me), and to improve the quality of writing.
    The workload will be 4-8k words per week (the chapters are long).

    Please PM me or leave a comment here if you are interested!

    Hey there, translators all have their own opinions and reactions about the situation at hand. Let's not flame translators for wanting to put forth time and effort into a product for everyone to enjoy, alright?

    @valdesaga Don't flame the TL because they want to translate a novel. Plus novels from Qidian are still being translated they haven't all been dropped.

    If you want to throw those kind of comments throw them at QI not at the translators...

    Thank you for reminding me of this. Yuewen Corp. is dangerous. Since I live in China now, they can easily hunt me down. I will be considering doing this in a more discreet way.

    np, if possible you should tell your translator friends as well. Your opinion about them is for you to decide tho.
