Works Found On Sites Other Than NU

Hello everyone! This post is about an issue that has brought about our concern and I am speaking on behalf of the team. Recently, we have found out that there are sites hosting not just our translations but also other groups’ translations. This is extremely disturbing to us. We’ve placed our translations at NovelUpdates because they will link back to our site and they credited our work. However, sites like lightnovelgate.com, novelzec.com, etc. do not link to our site but instead, they host it on their site. It is one thing to host it without our permission, it is another to not credit us for our hard work. Everyone on this team is very busy. Sugakookie has a real legit job plus a side job selling Kpop merchandise online. Isadora is currently an intern while the rest of us are bombed with many school projects and assignments. Some of us have to juggle our school assignments with our part-time jobs. Despite our busy schedule, we’ve tried our best to release biweekly for each novel (Any more frequent than that and the quality of our translations will decrease, which we do not want to see happen). Yet, our works have been posted without our permission and without proper credits. This also applies to other translators who’ve put in so much effort into their works and aren’t credited. I understand that these websites may be more convenient to read from but reading from these sites may affect the livelihood of the translators. Some translators monetise their sites with pay per impressions ads (meaning, for every hundred views on their website, they earn a few cents or dollars) and rely on it as their source of income (hence, every view counts). These websites are making them lose a considerable amount of money. We wish to buy a domain solely for us in the future and in order to pay for the domain, we might be monetising our site with pay per impressions ads. If we earn more, we can buy better upgrades to further improve the site and your reading experience. These websites aren’t helping any translators.
Therefore, Iluska & Maelani Translations Team hope that everyone will support us by reading our translations on our site and to not post our translations on any platform, especially without our permission.
Thank you all for your support,
Iluska & Maelani Translations Team.
