Announcements

Readers,

We have a new novel!! It’s called, Physician, Not a Consort. Initially, this was a project that I was going to translate after finishing Unruly Phoenix Xiaoyao. But due to many factors, I no longer had time, so I got a team to help me. 

I would like to thank Cosy, Ri, Mazu, Chai, Felis, Elaine and House for their hard work. House and Elaine will be finishing the novel!

Without further ado, here’s the synopsis:

The modern day doctor Lin Haihai has transmigrated into the body of the sixth princess consort. The woman who had been mistreated her whole life was going to be divorced by her husband, the Sixth Prince, to make room for his childhood lover. Lin Haihai couldn't care less. All she wanted was to start her own hospital and focus on her career. Equipped with her knowledge as a 21st century woman, she soon won over the hearts of the common people, and perhaps a few men's. She didn't need love, of course, or so she thought. Fate had other plans for her, and she found herself falling for a man she shouldn't...

Dear readers, 

I have AMAZING news. A hardcore, relentless, obsessed reader of ours emailed us a few months ago offering to restore ALL the comments from the old site. This means, the comments that were posted on disqus from 2-5 years ago are now viewable!!

As a software engineer, she wrote multiple emails trying to convince us it was worth the trouble. I quote, “Re-reading the novels with comments will certainly be an enjoyable experience. Especially for new users... who had not read the previous comments.

I am just an avid reader who wants to obsessively restore around 234,000 comments posted by other readers on volare. Even if each and every one of those comments is just a simple "Thank you translator", I still want to restore them.

It wasn’t that we did not want to restore the comments, but it was soooooooo much work. However, this insane reader was persistent and ended up spending weeks mapping all the old url to the new ones. 

We are incredibly lucky to have someone who loves our novels so much. 

Now, it is...

Hey everyone! We have a new novel launching today! The name of the novel is called 《一見鍾情,毒寵絕色小嬌妻》. However, it’s too ridiculous to use the actual name “Love at First Sight: Pampering the Remarkably Beautiful Delicate Wife.” Haha. Our translator, Olivia, has decided to call it “Their Love Stories”.

Without further ado, here is the synopsis:

Mo Suqing woke up one morning to find a stranger on the bed beside her and decided to accept the handsome guy's offer of marriage on the spot. What seemed to be a rash decision to get over with her ex turned out to be the love of her life. However, dark secrets began to come to light one by one as she learned more about the man. Will they be able to get through all the obstacles presented in their way? Meanwhile, the other characters were also writing their own love stories…

You can read the first 12 chapters here! Their Love Stories will be released daily!

Thoughts from translator: This is the first time I translate something heavy with slang or cultural words and phrases, which,...

We are back with another interview! This time, I have interviewed our awesome Jimmi and our brainy BPC team!! Without further ado, here are the questions:

1. What do you like most about BPC/ROTH?

2. What quote has always stuck with you?

For Ye Ci, the happiest thing in the world for her was a chance to right all her past wrongs.

She walked down a dark path, abandoning all for the sake of an empty glory in a game, leading to her own demise. Suddenly Ye Ci reincarnates back into a time when she still had her parents' love. For the sake of her family and a new beginning, she began her life as a professional gamer. She's no longer a Human Sorceress, she plays as an Elven Huntress. Read ROTH here!

To our wonderful readers,

I have exciting news! Volare is going to be dual hosting Genius Detective and Love Code at the End of the World! These novels are REALLY GOOD. Do not judge a book by its title or cover. Give at least ten chapters a try! 

They are already available to read on Wuxiaworld, but we will be bulk releasing here (bit by bit)! 

We follow the story of Song Lang, a genius in the police field, who due to unfortunate circumstances caused by his mortal enemy, now assumes the identity of a driver named Chen Shi. Although he had wanted to live out his days as an ordinary citizen, fate has other plans in store for him. Finding himself in the position of prime suspect to a case, he assists a police officer to uncover the truth. Follow the adventures of Chen Shi as he is plunged back into the world of bizarre homicide investigations. Will he be fated to meet his enemy once again? 

If you enjoy murder mysteries such as the TV show “The Mentalist”, or anime like “Detective Conan”, then this novel is for you.

Readers!

Today, I have interviewed our dedicated CTF team!! For those who haven't read CONSORT OF A THOUSAND FACES yet, you should start because it's *action* time!   

Not to mention, the novel is almost at its halfway point! Check out Rakumon's announcement here!

Personally, I have read 500 chapters of CTF because the novel is too addictive, and I couldn't wait for the translations! I recall between now and the next 30 chapters or so, there will be A LOT of intense snu snu.   

The male and female lead just can't get enough of each other. As the saying goes, "If you're thirsty, it's time to start drinking!" LOLLLL AHAHAHAAHAHA.   (ok, I made that line up)


Without further ado, here are the questions!

1. What do you like most about CTF?

2. How does it feel to translate/edit the steamy scenes? 

3. If you could be a character in a novel, what type of role would you want? 

4. Recommend a volare novel to the readers! What do you like about it?

Hey readers!

Today, I have interviewed our highly popular novel, FIELDS OF GOLD!! (Wouldn’t it be nice to see a field of gold? :P) 

Anyhow, here are the questions: 

What do you like the most and the least about translating?

What do you spend most of your time doing when you are not translating?

If you can transmigrate into a novel to become one of the characters, which novel, who, and why?

If you had a clone, what would you have the clone do?

 

Featuring Myst

1. I like that it can help me improve my Chinese reading skills and I’m also learning a lot from all the researching. However, it’s very time consuming and really takes a lot of commitment. 

2. I usually spend my free time reading novels, watching dramas, and sleeping. 

3. I want to be the emperor emeritus in Fields of Gold because I want to be able to travel around and eat delicious food (Xiaocao’s cooking!!!).

4. If I had a clone, I would have her help me with the translations so that I can be a lazy bum while she does all the work. XD

Hi readers!

I am back with more interviews from some of your beloved translators. Please enjoy!

 

Featuring Iris, the translator of ACA

What do you spend most of your time doing when you are not translating?

Well, I lost my job then I got rehired, and it’s a 9am-6pm job, so that’s what I’ve been trying to balance on my plate at the moment. But aside from working and translating, I read. Usually, it’s non-fiction on social, political or design. It helps to keep my grasp of language sharp and keeps me entertained beyond working on ACA. I also draw, I have been trying to get into digital illustrations, but I’ve doing watercolours for a while. I play video games as well, currently hooked on Animal Crossing and Monster Hunter: World.


If you had a clone, what would you have the clone do?

Assuming that she would have all of my intellectual qualities, I would take shifts with my clone, one of us could go to work, and the other would stay home and translate. But the more I think about it, the weirder it feels. Because I have...
