    Title.
    Will webnovel/qidian just steal your translation and outright sue you for it or is there something else?
    Is it best to just work under them because of the series?
    Just a reader asking questions

    Uh... it'd be best to just pick another novel, honestly. :blobsweat_2:

    I am hiding behind a proxy behind a proxy. I am totally fine with aggregators because it prevents me from being sued. Remember, Fan Translators are pirates too. And many fan translators forget this. I would pretty much pick a new name and translate under a different name. granted i am too lazy to post, but that is what I would do if it came to it.
