Dropping ZTJ

Hi everyone,

As you can probably guess from the title of this post, I don’t have any good news.

After taking into consideration my current time constraints, the editor applications and various other things that have cropped up recently, I have made the decision to stop translating Ze Tian Ji.

Work was an important factor towards my decision to drop the project, but I also had to take my health into consideration (I have a long-term condition that makes it very bad for me to not rest properly), alongside my wish to try and apply to study a doctorate – something I was originally going to put on hold for a while, but recent events have made me decide not to wait any longer.

It has been fairly fun to translate ZTJ for others and to try my best to allow everyone to appreciate the style of the author. I haven’t reached far enough to show others the plot progression, but hopefully, whoever picks up the project will be able to lead readers towards that goal.

I will continue to work on editing the old chapters done by binggo&corp because it’s something that needs to be done, but other than that I won’t be participating in translations of ZTJ at all.

I have already sent out emails to those who applied to be editors, to explain my choice, but I would once again like to thank them for taking the time to apply.

Thank you everyone,
bbkgs.

    Thanks for all of your hard work. Your health and goals in life are more important than translating this series. Besides, it has already been picked up by another group. I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors 🙂

    Thanks for translating thus far!

    You know that feeling when you have to present in class, and the person goes before you did an awesome job? I am praying whoever pick this up does not drop the baton.

    Best of luck!
