Looking for Chinese WN to Translate

Hey guys, my friend and I plan on translating some Chinese webnovels to English. We want to translate ones that the community care about and would want to read so please give some suggestions. We were thinking about picking up Jiang Ye or Ancient One however we are not too sure yet. Give us some ideas please. Thanks!

    Jiang Ye is a great choice!!
    another could be Stealing the Heavens - http://forum.novelupdates.com/threads/stealing-the-heavens.21660/  or (http://forum.wuxiaworld.com/discussion/6690/chinese-stealing-the-heavens#latest) - it is about 1200 chapters long and should be relatively simple compared to Jiang ye...
    another choice perhaps Yang God - http://forum.novelupdates.com/threads/yang-god.23490/ ;
    the links are to proper pick up requests on a different forum which could give you some idea what those 2 novels are about and whether there is any popularity for them!!
    i haven't heard of ancient one but just looked it up and it has over 2000 chapters, unless you are willing to invest about 3-5 years to complete I don't suggest it and go for something relatively smaller with a max of 1500 chapters as those novels with over 2000 chapters are nearly impossible to completely translate, but it is your choice I just gave you a bit of my opinion and that's it...
    my few cents, i hope your translation is a pleasant one and good luck...

    oh and btw your not going to be using machine translations right?
  • Please pick up the translation of Douluo Dalu II

  • Thanks for the recomendations DeathStroke96, and of course we won't be using something as trashy as machine translations.
  • I didn't know. Thank you for telling me

    Np, are you guys setting up your own site or are planning on posting the translations on some forum like here or gravitytales forum? 
    And great that it is not machine!! I look forward to whatever you choose!!
  • I'd really like to see the translation of Spirit Blade Mountain picked up. You can skim through the manhua to see if you like it; imho - it's great. The guys who were translating the novel previously were only doing 2-1 chapter a month before stopping few months back.
  • Ok so we have chosen to translate Yang God. We are currently working on getting a stockpile before we start to post, but you can find our website here. Thanks again for the suggestions DeathStroke96. Also Zauberklavier we currently don't know what our limitation is, and we don't want to overtax ourselves and drop a novel so we need to experiment with our first novel and see what happens. But I personally really liked Spirit Blade Mountain so if we ever decide to pick up another novel, it will be my top choice if it hasn't been restarted. No promises but stay tuned.

    no worries, looks like i forgot to mention it... spirit blade mountain is getting picked up... it will be done here en.qidian.com somewhere during march/april/may whenever their site goes up!! - proof http://forum.novelupdates.com/threads/about-qidian-international-project.26804/page-7#post-1084554 its the first on the list...
  • Ok, so a lot of our group liked Yang God so we will be restarting the translations for it. We are currently working on making a stockpile now. You can find the website here! If we have the ability to translate another novel then we will, however, for now we need to discover our limit. So I apologize for not being able to get to your suggestion Zauberklavier
