"Translation Request" Thread

I thought it might be interesting to have a thread where people can post requests for translations of offical Castlevania-related media. You can request anything from manuals, guidebooks, novels etc.

If your requested is accepted it would of course be very handy if you could provide the translator with a scan or a link. There's no guarantee that someone will accept your request of course, but it can't hurt to try.

Also, feel free to post if you're not able to provide a translation yourself, but you know someone who might want to help.

My request:

Part of a Castlevania novel. It's around 30 pages with very large illustrations on most pages.

I paid someone to translate the novel for me. It was kind off a waste of money though, because although you can roughly understand what is being said, the sentences are not very coherent. A lot of the translation work is already done though, so if anyone wants to take a look at the novel and the rough translation, and improve upon it, I could share it with you guys. I could understand the general outline of the story and it's very interesting so far.

Oh may I see the novel and the rough translation? I am interested in helping. (My Japanese is not at the native level though. I have a JLPT certification of level 2 about 6 years ago. It is equivalent to the N2 level in the revised JLPT. However since I am no longer learning Japanese, I have a feeling that my level could have dropped to N3.)
Plus I really want to read the novel.

The novel requires an advanced knowledge of Japanese. But i'm not giving up. It would take quite some time for me to translate.

Thanks for helping Shiroi! I felt bad backing out from helping Nagumo on this novel (a lot of iRL drama, so I ended up not having any time to work on it) so I'm glad she's getting some help. :)

Alright, I managed to get hands on 8 extra parts of this story. Sadly not in chronological order. Anyway, I noticed Simon sports a fancy beard in this story as well. That's an interesting coincidence.

I can have a look in the roughly translated part? While I learned english I've understood some incoherent things that a person that fully understands english simply cant. Do you know these guys that writes all the sort of things wrong in the internet? They simple think  that this makes sense to the world because it makes sense toi himself. I retained some part of this ignorance while I upgraded my english because I knew that it could come in handy sometime.

Sure, just tell me what your email is and I'll send it to you.

I noticed something interesting in one of the magazines that contain this story. I spotted some artwork done by Kojima which predates her Castlevania stuff by 3 years. It's from the Wizardry series.

Pics please.
It is precisely because it never cared, that people do care.  It's something which it's lacking, because that which it has, it has lackluster of.

You can send it to my MSN email, the same above my avatar. I tend to check it sometimes and ever that someone says that will send me something. Thanks. :P
