As promised, I will take care of the translation of the German Umbrella Chronicles book(s). But some important things first:


You must know that I am taking over someone else’s work. Therefore, the style of the translation may be different in terms of vocabulary, tense, sentence structure, etc. I appreciate what the other translator did but personal style is a thing and it's unavoidable. I studied translating and interpreting for 3 years, however, I’m still a beginner – so I apologize in advance for any mistakes. I promise to do my best! My source is the original German version of “Umbrella Chronicles 1” and I will translate all the missing parts the former translator skipped. No idea when I will be able to finish it but working on it is a start... ;)


I'll keep you guys updated ^^

Oh, and what you must know: The German version is very low quality writing from what I can tell. I don’t know about the Japanese original but other RE books are definitely better written.

I try to make it sound better, but yeah… I can’t deviate from the original too much :/

So please keep in mind that it might sound weird because the source material is weird and not my translation/style ^^°

Thanks!!

Translations can be very hard to do but the satisfaction you feel for translating something is an amazing feeling. Nevertheless, although your life has been hectic ChaoticClaire I am looking forward to reading your translations, and I want to thank you and I know the residents will appreciate the translations you have for us. Keep us informed and keep up the outstanding work.
