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, renn, and Vanilla Cupcake ❤. (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
170331 ANNOUNCEMENT: Quota change!
Starting the week of April 3rd, 2017, we are trying something new! Each eligible user* will be allowed to make 1 request per week and, for now, there will be no cap on the total number of requests we accept. That is, each week, we will take single requests from an unlimited number of eligible users. These limits 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 the condition that you meet all the rules.
*NOTE: Eligibility is defined by a minimum of 15 posts in the OneHallyu forums at the time of posting the request. It's easy to participate in OH. Converse, contribute, but don't spam!
3. Request Form
Original lyrics (optional):
Please fill out this form for each song you request. 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.)
※ 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!
