English translation of Sanguo zhi pinghua

Unread postby plunged » Sun Nov 13, 2016 12:09 pm

Hello all,

Just wanna say that I'm getting help in making an English translation of the Sanguo zhi pinghua! Currently only 10 pages are translated, and it may take a long while before all the 69 pages are translated though.

Anyway, if you're interested in reading the SGZPH, you can find the translated pages here below. I will be posting more pages at random... (though I think at least one per month).

Sanguo zhi pinghua main page

SGZ Pinghua page 1
SGZ Pinghua page 2
SGZ Pinghua page 3
SGZ Pinghua page 4
SGZ Pinghua page 5
SGZ Pinghua page 6
SGZ Pinghua page 7
SGZ Pinghua page 8
SGZ Pinghua page 9
SGZ Pinghua page 10

(you can use the navigation bar at the top of each page to navigate through all the pages)

So... I hope people are interested in this, and if you are I hope you like this translation. Please let me know if you do, or if you spot any errors, or if you think certain sentences could be written better, or if you have some more information for the main page, cause I think it's still a bit shallow.

Btw, the story doesn't really kick off until page 5, when the Yellow Turban Rebellion starts. The first 4 pages serve as prelude and may be considered a bit odd.

Now with translations of: He Jin, Huangfu Song, Zhu Jun, Lu Zhi, Cheng Pu, Sima Shi, Lady Wang and many more.

lol,

Been busy with this since September, and I was sure at that time there was no English translation available for this, so I thought I was doing something unique...

but now all of a sudden I stumble upon this:

I just ordered that book to check if it's good. If it is (it probably is), consider the project cancelled.... :cry:

Has it arrived buddy? Is it any good, would be something I'd be interested if it gets the Plunged vote of approval!

Hope you don't get disheartened by it being a waste of time, the amount you contribute to the 3K community is awesome!

I haven't had much time to read it, and I'm also currently reading another book (about that Netflix show, Making a Murderer, very good read) and I wanna finish that first before I read this one.

But at first glance Records of the Three Kingdoms in Plain Language seems very professional and an easy to read translation.
