Is it wrong to feel disgusted with the novel translation world?
I stem from manga and manhua, but also ended up doing some (light) novel translations in the end. Well, I do know Chinese and Japanese and English, making me pretty valuable for translations, but that's not the point.
How the novel translation world has grown so much totally disgusts me. I believe I was in one of the first generations of web novel translations, and it disgusts me how things have went down that way.
Nowadays, the novel translation world is all about money money and money. It's both disgusting and sad, really, for a person like me who has always done things as service. How much money do they make - with donations AND ads? Seriously, it really does make me feel disgusted, and think how terribly wrong the community is now. I know there's at least one money-grabbing site that was inspired by my novel translations.
I'm really sad, really, and disappointed. It's actually really depressing.
