Aran Translations

Currently translating Inverted Dragons Scale!

IDS 144- 154 + Announcement

Hi everyone,

It’s Aran here. I know I’ve not been the most stable of translators in a while. Life, issues and a general lack of motivation has made translating difficult at the best of times. I know I’ve not been giving IGE the attention it deserves and that’s unfair for the readers. So when I discovered another group translating IGE, at first I felt shock, and then outrage – IGE is the novel that I’ve spent thousands of hours translating, and it’s hard not to grow attached even though the novels belongs to no one but the authors. However when I thought about it some more, I had to admit to myself – it probably is in better hands, with someone that can dedicate the time to translate chapters weekly. Ever since I’ve graduated, I’ve really struggled with keeping up to the commitment of translating day in day out. Do I have really have the time to translate IGE properly? Can I really commit myself to a regular schedule? We all need to learn to let go, and the time is now.

With that, and careful reflection, I will bid farewell to Imperial God Emperor – It’s been a good year and a bit, but thank you for all the support and for all the readers along the way. Who knows what the future holds – but for now, I will say goodbye to IGE. I wish the new translators the best of luck and I offer a hand to lend them any help they may need.

On other, more happy, news, IDS will still be translated by Selda – and since I’m free now, expect the rate of chapters to be released to increase as I can help up more. Honestly, this story is just about to pick up pace and steam big time – it’s one of the stories I look forward to reading new chapters every day. If you guys can read up to chapter 600, I am sure you would agree with me that it’s a fantastic story.


With that being said – here’s 10 chapters of IDS. With that, we should have roughly caught up with our scehdule of 3 a week, since we’ve missed a couple of weeks. 😀

      Thanks – once again , I’m sorry it took so long for me to make a decision. Look forward to IDS 🙂

  2. Have you seen the quality of work the other group does?

  3. i hope you know that the other team delivers “translations” of really bad quality and the “baby” that youre so reluctant to put away will be mistreated really badly – so if you really care id suggest you give the whole thing another thought or at least find someone better to tl it..

      I didn’t realise at all….I’ll go read the chapter they translated just now…

  4. Thanks for all your work!
    Personnally i`d wish you stick with IGE and not IDS but we can`t always get what we want.

    The group that took over IGE… well i read some of their other projects and its horrible at best ;d

    Try reading their God of Slaughter…

    Anyways, i enjoyed your IGE and i enjoy your IDS, thanks for all the work!

  5. Where is the like button


    thanks for the releases, and good luck in your life! *virtual hug*

  6. First thanks for all your hard work.

    Secondly please if you truly decide you don’t want to translate this anymore please don’t let wuxia dream take over, find someone capable to do it before you leave please.

    They did it for another novel I read, God of slaughter, and it honestly feels like it’s just machine translation without anything done to it, and it truly saddens me seeing novels I like to read being turned into a incomprehensible mess.

  7. Well wasnt that other group that tryied to steel douluo dalu from blue silver group using dead threats and trolling in blues home page ?

  8. Thanks for your hard work Aran…I think I understand why you wanna drop IGE,and it is probably for the best of both the readers and yourself.I wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
    However,I have to say that I will unfortunately have to stop reading IGE or look for lnmtl if the other group is gonna go ahead with IGE. They are a bit notorious on NU for ‘commandeering’ series. And they can maybe not reach to your quality of TL ever. Sad,but hopefully I am proven wrong. If you have some TL friend willing to do IGE,lease do shout out!! I am pretty sure that people may even donate if we get back a stable release rate,considering how good and unique it is.

  9. Thank you very much aran. IGE is the most favourite novel that i can’t wait to read every time you release. Huhuhuhu i don’t know what to say when you say another team doing the same.

  10. 11 chapters… That is a bit better than 10.
