Ever wonder what those Chinese language artists are singing about? That's what we're here for! The C-Music Lyrics Translation Request Project at OneHallyu began in October 2013 and it's currently staffed by: Barack Oppama, haru baek, Vanilla Cupcake ❤, and renn. (King of Spades is our dark overlord.) The plan is to take and fulfill translation requests on a weekly basis. Here are the rules & guidelines!
1. Weekly Timeline
Monday: Requests open.
Thursday: Requests close by midnight.
Sunday: Latest day for translations of the week to be posted.
Requests that fall outside the open request period will not be considered and you will need to try again next week. So long as it is Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday anywhere in the world, it will be okay. Translations will be posted gradually throughout the week as they are completed!
2. Request Cap
160613 ANNOUNCEMENT: Quota change!
We are capping the maximum number of requests from a single individual at 2 per week and the total number of requests we accept at 8 per week. (This means that, e.g. if 7 requests have already been made for the week and none of them are from you, you nonetheless can only request 1 song.) These numbers are subject to change without prior notice, depending on the demand, the size of our translator team, etc.
Please bear in mind that we can get quite busy with school and work! Requests will be considered on a first come first serve basis, on the condition that you meet all the rules.
3. Request Form
Request #_ this week
Original lyrics (optional):
※ "Request #_ this week" -- this is to help us keep track of your quota usage so fill it out according to your own situation
Please fill out this form for each song you request. It is preferable that each week, should you request more than one song, you fill out the forms within the same post. We will let you know if a request has been accepted for the week; at this point you are no longer allowed to go back and edit that particular request post. (You cannot change your mind about using your quota on that particular song once it has been accepted by a translator. Also, after this happens, should you happen to have another request that falls within both the quota and the open request period, you will need to create a new request post.)
※ Check the C-Translations Index to ensure the song hasn't already been translated!
These translations are done for the requesters and the general public, but please respect the hard work that the translators have put in! Do no claim as your own. Do not edit. Always give that particular translator full credit and indicate that he/she is from OneHallyu. Linking back would be extra kind of you!
