I started this translation site on September 13th 2019 and called myself Novice Translator, but my readers started to nickname me Novi, so I stuck with that.
I used to be a fellow leech reading manga and light novels, and one day I was reading The Frog Prince and the Witch and I realize the novel wasn’t completely translated and there was only 7 chapters left with the last update of over a year ago. This was the straw that broke the camel’s back. I decided, to do my own translations so I can finish reading the novels I want to read and to spread the joy of these author’s untranslated works.
Instead of reading by myself, I decided to take time out of my day to share translations with readers who wants to enjoy the author’s works with me.
I work full time and a housewife. I do this to read these stories alongside with readers and anxiously wants to see what happens next. As you can see, I don’t take donations or ko-fi like other fan translators, instead, I prefer reading your comments (although I don’t reply to all of them), that makes me more happy during the day than getting a donation. This point can also be seen as my site is completely AD-FREE.
I would also appreciate that if you read one of the novels I translate, if you can leave a review on NovelUpdates, this is basically free publicity for the novel and to share with other readers who doesn’t know about me, to come to this site and enjoy the stories I’ve translated.
Thank you for reading.
Update Sept. 9, 2020:
So, I’ve been struggling internally and decided to swallow my pride. I created a ko-fi and Patreon for those readers who wants to take the extra step to send love to me and support me further. I’ve been doing this for 11 months and proud to say I’ve been getting better over time and made my translations much smoother compared to my earlier translations. Thank you for the readers that been with me in this journey! I truly appreciate it and if it weren’t for you guys, I wouldn’t have bother with this hobby. With your support and kind words, I managed to release 557 full-length chapters in these 11 months.
I could have done more but I had a lot of issues through this period of time and thus decided upon the creation of ko-fi and maybe Patreon. I want to let you guys know, even if you don’t/can’t support me via those platforms. I still love and appreciate the readers equally (unless you’re one of the few that comes to put me down on purpose).
