We have two translations of the Sword of the Yue Maiden on WuxiaSociety.

The older translation was originally published on another site by an anonymous translator, and was later reposted here in 2015.

The new translation is a WuxiaSociety translation done by Jenxi in 2022. It is an ongoing work and you can support it by donating.

Changelog

  • Added Part 1 and Part 2 of the in-house translation.
  • Translation of parts the the previous translator glossed over.
  • Corrected wrong translation of the Wu and Yue swordsmen’s clothing.
    • “Swordsman in blue” actually wears black. It is a very commonly seen bad translation of the term 青, which means black in older times but have come to mean green and blue nowadays.

  • Added Part 3 of the in-house translation.
  • Translation of parts that the previous translator glossed over.
  • Left the title *dafu* in the pinyin form as there is no real equivalent in English. The previous translation used Minister but it is actually a scholar-official in the Warring States period.
  • Used the proper pinyin formatting of Aqing’s name. The previous translation used A’qing, a common mistake in trying to separate the prefix with an apostrophe. In pinyin, apostrophes are only used to separate consecutive vowels.

  • Added Part 4 to Part 8 of the in-house translation.
  • Translation of parts that the previous translator glossed over.
