MLA Schwarzesmarken (first part)



Yeeah! Translated the first part of the first novel of MuvLuv Alternative's Schwarzesmarken series, originally published in the Tech Gian magazine. It's short, yes, but it's all I have.


Plain text version (alternate link)
Elite version (with pictures) (alternate link)



Have fun, spread the word.



Hopefully (ahem, ahem) scans of the rest of the book (and other books) will surface soon...

Also, up for a meaningful (that is, one that can be easily shared with other people) translation of, say, Alternative Chronicles? ITH seems to work on them, so the translation itself would be less of a problem, really, than figuring out a way to make it user-friendly. But then I don't know much about that stuff, I just like working with the text, so these are tentative musings.

Edit: added Dropbox links for those having problems with Google Drive for some reason.

  10. Not sure about Total Eclipse. Just got internet back, sort of. I think I'd be busy with onr project first.

    As to Schwarz, expect a delay of a month before translation start. I'd probably get the books at the end of the month, plus the time to send them over to my friend, for him to scan them. I still plan to definitely translate the first book at the very least, and we'll see how it goes from there. If it's interesting enough, I'll continue it as an exercise.

    1. Well that's good, I thought the project was abandoned. No updates worried me. I don't mind waiting, it really good that this even got a translation.

      How many books has Schwarz have already? And have you seen the Total Eclipse anime?

    3. Did you think of working with Baka-Tsuki?
      If you upload your project there, I am sure more translators will be willing to join in and help translate the rest of the volumes.

  11. Schwarzesmarken's up to three volumes currently, with some more recent chapters on Tech Gian.

    xmisterx:
    As for Alternative Chronicles, do you mean the three eponymous volumes only, or are the stories Atonement and Succession on the Ayu-Mayu FD? I'd really like to have a translation of the back-story of everyone's favorite drill sergeant-chan.
