Volare Novels was founded in Dec 2015, and is an off the beaten path translating shop with an amazing select coterie of novels. Previously existing as http://volaretranslations.com in 2016, we moved forward in 2017 as simply volare. We seek to soar into wondrous novels with our readers!
We seek to give a voice to the atypical, the quirky, the flabbergasting plot twists and are equally fascinating ourselves. ! 😀
etvolare (ROS, DCF) – Eccentric fantasy, scifi and xianxia bookworm, and also a practical romanticist. Frequently called "etvo" by the online community, she currently resides in Taiwan and can be found on Twitter @etvofluff. Her background is in finance/banking, making the transition to translating in 2015. Other works include Sovereign of the Three Realms and Great Demon King.
Chiyomira (PAH) – Chiyomira is a coffee-powered translator that sometimes doesn’t think out her decisions that well, so now she translates a total of 6 series. However, she doesn’t regret! She has the confidence to say, all her series are worth your read!
PAH is complete.
Choufleur (BPC) - Buries into the romanticism of fantasy and xianxia to escape the terrible realism of life. I took over translating Bone Painting Coroner from Grenn in 2018 to polish my rusty Chinese and now is Overly Invested. I can also be found on Instagram as @choufleursx and somewhere in Singapore. I also translate a Manhua called 'General, Your Wife Ran Again' and sometimes help with other projects as well, but BPC is my baby <3
Craxuan (SRH) – Hey guys, it’s Craxuan. Currently I’m translating Single Player Only, Spirit Realm and now Star Rank Hunter. The reason I picked this up was because there are a lot of Wuxia Xianxia translated stories out there, but not nearly enough in other genres like horror, sci-fi, slice of life etc. I aim to change this slowly, starting with Star Rank Hunter. I sure hope y’all will enjoy this!
SRH is no longer hosted on volare.
Dreamer (DWGMSFF, SUL) – A student who escapes reality with Chinese books and dramas. She likes to stay awake till the wee hours to read and translate, and so got great big panda eyes. Likes to translate funny, ancient books. Hope you all enjoy my translations!
DWGMSFF and SUL are both complete.
Grace (UPX) – Hey everyone! My name is Grace. I took over Unruly Phoenix Xiaoyao from chapter 270 (Our amazing Ruyi translated the first 269 chapters)! Originally, I started off as a blogger at liveandlearn88.com. I only started translating because I wanted to lure more readers into my blog. Who would've thought I would end up here? :P Hope you all like my work. I also write posts on "Grace Time"!
Your Highness, and Supernatural Girlfriend, Killer Nights, Unruly Phoenix Xiaoyao are all completed on volare. The Eunuch is Pregnant is completed on my site at theeunuch.com
Grenn (Poisoning the World) – Hi everyone! I’m Grenn. I come from Rotten Translations, which is a small wordpress. Along with Wenhui, our team other translator, Marci and Eris, our two editors, we arrived with Poisoning the World: The Secret Service Mysterious Doctor is a Young Beastly Wife (quite a mouthful, right?). It’s a very long romance novel, but it’s quite interesting and a bit crazy. Although we are not the fastest, we are very steady with our releases. If we were to talk just about me, I started as reader like most of us here, then began to self-learn Chinese in order to read raws and ended up becoming a slow translator instead. Nowadays, I took Chinese class to consolidate my knowledge which help quite a lot with translation speed. ! 😛 I’m an ambitious language learner, but right now still stuck mastering Chinese as a fourth language.
Poisoning the World is no longer active & Grenn has retired.
iris.knight (ACA) – Hi! I'm Iris. I'm Singaporean-Taiwanese, and I picked up translations to make sure my Chinese does not waste away while I pursue an education in Graphic Design. Adorable Creature Attacks is my first ever webnovel translation, but it would not be my last, at least in the foreseeable future.
Adorable Creature Attacks is published 9x a week
Sanguine (LT, FOG) Sagittarius, Year of the Horse, blood type O. I was forced to go to Chinese school as a child but then fell into the amazing world of webnovels as an adult. Reading is my one true love, so translating for other people to enjoy is an extension of that love!
Jimminx (RoTH) – An averagely normal ordinary person living in Malaysia. Procrastinates a lot, lazy most of the time but will get shit done with enough motivation. Loves anime, plays games and enjoyed reading novels (particularly fond of Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance Cycle). Aaaand uhhh…. I guess SUPPORT REIGN ON THE HUNTERS ON PATERON! Remember: with great motivation comes great translation speed. (Will always be happy to provide spoilers! And to all the crazed staff out there, MERCY!)
Reign of the Hunters is published 4x a week.
Myst – FOG and MYST belongs together. ;) FOG is released 7x a week!
Eudaimonia- (HSSB, SWFM) – A Transcended mehxistence
Still, Wait for Me is published 3x a week. History’s Strongest Senior Brother is no longer active because it's a qidian novel (1169 chapters have been released).
WeirdWhirl (DAO) – Heya! Whirls here. I was happily writing The Dao Of Magic, and other books, when Etvolare bugged me if I wanted to post my novel on volare. Pretending not to geek out and trying to keep my inner fangirl in check, I agreed! Anyway, I started writing DAO after meling my brain with reading one too many trope-filled xianxia and wuxia novels.
DAO is usually published 3x a week.
Premonition (CEO) – Some say he owns the bank, and that he’s the gentleman.
Ruyi (FDFH, PGC, UPX) – Rogue translator found and caught in the wild, always munching through raws for the next great plot twist, spoiler, or power-up item. Currently in search of the fabled No Typo Paradise. An incredible FGO addict.
PGC is published 7+ times a week, while UPX updates 4x a week on Mon, Wed, Fri, and Sat. FDFH is complete.
Seth (RPS) – The world's friendliest antisocial recluse. A former reader turned translator who started learning Chinese purely as a way to avoid doing schoolwork but quickly grew obsessed. Former STEM student who procrastinated his way into an entirely different field. Current translator of Red Packet Server.
RPS is published daily
Sigil (TMK) – Former leech turned translator. Spends his days in the dark recesses of Volare either trying to TL the next chapter of TMK or pouring over the interwebs for new novels to read.

If only I could brain fart through class… anyways be sure to check out the other place I live: tranzgeek.wordpress.com where I talk about upcoming adaptations and translate some more novels that have a more realistic feel to them.
FM is complete.
Ello~ Yuna here! Your average FT white collar worker, who enjoys watching Chinese TV series and reading CN webnovels. My wish is to polish my CN reading comprehension and vocab while sharing as many many novels as I can with everyone. Current finished project: ROAS and ROF, please do check it out if you love showbiz, romance, and drama! ^^
Insane – Not only is he our savior, he's also a heart breaker! Watch out, ladies!
angerthosenear – Some say he doesn’t live up to his name very well, and that he can’t stop breaking his computers, and is only skill is Googling. He’s not The Stig, but he is the Stig’s tech savvy cousin!
