Re: Project Feedback: New Romance of the Three Kingdoms Online Novel?

The only modern ebook of textual B-T translation (that is not copied from threekingdoms.com) is Tuttle 2011 kindle edition. I might have bought it if the same discount was going on Amazon Japan, where my main account is located at... Right now it would cost about double price there :rangry: https://...

Re: Project Feedback: New Romance of the Three Kingdoms Online Novel?

That leaves a host of other proper nouns. Book names, titles, etc. Those are the ones which seem, to me, like they could get a lot more involved, and which seem, to me, like they could benefit a great deal from a separate glossary. That way, if we wanted to change the translation of one proper noun...

Re: Project Feedback: New Romance of the Three Kingdoms Online Novel?

We may need to take care of people or place with same name too. I remember there are several instances for both. Pinyin indexing would result in more of these, whilst Chinese indexing has chance of mis-tagging due to the nature of the language. So both have its own pros and cons. One quick workaroun...

Re: Project Feedback: New Romance of the Three Kingdoms Online Novel?

The Chinese online fans have actually done one big project of the same type (of course, with the original Chinese text). It used to be accessible online as a website, but is now only available under the WeChat apps. It has pretty much what James is suggesting, i.e. reference-link and commentaries, ...

Re: Project Feedback: New Romance of the Three Kingdoms Online Novel?

I dont think you should worry about that during your translation/edit at this stage. Things like these are often handled with programming or other automated means afterwards.

However it would still be much appreciated if you can compile an index of proper nouns.

Re: Project Feedback: New Romance of the Three Kingdoms Online Novel?

Looking for some style feedback on a point. How might we consider presentation of names such as: About the same time four of his officers conceived the idea of getting for Tsʻao Ts‘ao the honour of “Prince of Wei.” In one sense, I am considering the single-quotes presentation and style of of ‘Princ...

Re: How good is Chinese => English webpage translation these days?

If it is modern Chinese, then the performance of machine translation could be above average for webpages with popular and non-professional contents. However, since you are talking about SGZ, that is not modern but classical Chinese ... Furthermore, there would always be some message that cannot be c...
