11/06/2017 UPDATE: REQUESTS AREN’T AVAILABLE ANYMORE, UNTIL (possible) FURTHER NOTIFICATION. ANY NEW REQUEST WON’T BE TAKEN IN CONSIDERATION. READ MORE ABOUT IT HERE.
04/23/2019 UPDATE: REQUESTS ARE NOW AVAILABLE, BUT DIFFERENTLY FROM BEFORE (read down for more)
You can now request a song again but… this time isn’t for free anymore.
Translating takes time and effort, and I’ve worked on tons of lots of users’ requests throughout the years, and of course bad happenings occurred. Like, having some of my requester reuploading my translated lyrics elsewhere and – oddly enough – taking credits for it, or not receiving not even a “thanks” after translating a 1000+words song.
I don’t plan on making this wordpress a job, but there have been so many times in which at the end of the day, translating a song I didn’t even know didn’t left me anything.
So, from now on and 100% at your will, translations requests will have a small price, which won’t be much higher than a cup of coffee.
I don’t plan to discuss it here, and I hope anyone who’s interested in it will be able to read this. But, just in case, let me write it again bigger, in caps and crimson-red:
IF YOU WANT ME TO TRANSLATE A JAPANESE SONG, DM ME ON TWITTER (@FGRNDNoises) OR SEND ME AN E-MAIL TO MY ADRESS email@example.com: PRICE PER SONG: 3$ (ON KO-FI.COM)
Payment and conditions will be explained on the DM / mail. Hope you’ll understand this and keep on enjoying my content!
EVERYTHING AFTER THIS IS PART OF THE ORIGINAL POST, WHICH IS NOT VALID ANYMORE
Let me say this first.
I will accept your requests, but read those rules first.
Most important thing is that you must provide me a lyrics’ scan or something from where I can read the lyrics of the song you requested me.
If your song won’t be translated, it’s because I can’t find its lyrics.
So be sure to send me the song’s lyrics in order to have your translation done.
I’m doing this for free and I’m happy to do it, but finding lyrics could be a bigger burden than translation itself. So please, cooperate with me and be sure to provide me the lyrics for your requests.
It takes me a lot of time translating your songs, so I can’t afford to spend even more time to search for lyrics. Keep that in mind, please: Your translation will be done only if you provide me its lyrics/booklet/whatever!
If you don’t, I’ll delay them, and I can’t even assure you I’ll be able to find the lyrics.
Thank you for your attention!
You can request a song to be translated by getting in contact with me.
I don’t ask anything in exchange, but there are some rules and things to keep on mind.
1) Translation’s outcome will change depending according to the time I’ve got
2) I’ll give priority to songs related to my likes and website, meaning that, in order, Touhou-Kantai Collection and doujin band songs will have major priority over anime songs, and anime songs will have priority over any other kind of miscellaneous non-doujin japanese song.
3) If you’re going to use my translations for websites or youtube videos, I’d like to be referred to as the translator, if you don’t mind.
4) Try to avoid entrusting me more than a song at a time, just try to stick with only one.
5) If you badly want more than a song to be translated, set one of them as prior, so I’ll translate it first and later I’ll translate the other.
6) You must send me a link to hear the song (youtube or such) or a mp3 file of it.
7) Again, you have to send me a link where I can read its japanese lyrics, or a scan from the album’s booklet.
8) If you can’t find the lyrics, I’ll try find them myself, but If I can’t, I’ll let you know*.
*that’s because writing down lyrics by ear can result in syntax and translations’ errors, due japanese being a language full of homophones. Check this page in order to see your request’s status!
That’s a project I’m starting this year.
I don’t know how it’ll turn, but I’m giving it a try.
So, if you’re reading this and have a (yet untranslated) japanese song you’d want to get your english translation on, just don’t be shy and ask me anything!
How? Contact me:
Via Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Via Twitter: @FGRNDNoises
Via Skype: flakyz2 (I don’t use it anymore)
Fastest way to get my attention is Twitter, ’cause having it on my smartphone I’ll be able to see if you contact me as soon as you do. Mail is the second fastest option. Skype is good too, but I do not log in everyday, so it’s not the safest.
Also, please, avoid commenting on other posts for requests. I would be happy if you’d choose another way (see above).
Thank you for your attention!
– Done ✓ = translation done & posted.
– Pending = request has been accepted.
– Locked = request has been accepted but can’t be done ATM due some problems. Reasons on footnotes.
– In Progress = translations in progress (only appears when a full CD / more than a song from the same CD has been requested)
– Missing Lyrics = lyrics not provided by requester or that I wasn’t able to find online. “Missing lyrics” doesn’t mean I won’t translate the song warked as this. Once I’ll have the lyrics, I’ll translate these songs.
– Aborted = request aborted because already translated by someone else (I’ll leave the link to their translations)
– Scrapped ☠ = request I couldn’t translate. Possible reasons: way too hard to render in english, nonsense lyrics, impossibility to figure out its content and such. I can give up too, you know… Scrapped lyrics will be explained on the footnotes.
Also, there may could be footnotes about certain requests. Be sure to check them out.
Since things are getting really busy (and I don’t have so much time to deal with those huge amount of requests), I decided to give priority to some requests over others.
Some of those songs you requested to me have already been translated by someone else, so I decided to add another status “Aborted“. Songs marked with this are already translated (I’m sorry, but I don’t really have time to get over every request…), so I’ll leave the link of the translated song next to it.
I apreciate everyone who works with doujin songs translations, so I don’t think it’s a bad thing to promote other translator’s work.
That’s not a choice for laziness, I really have no time!
I’ll stick only to untranslated requests, I’m sorry!
Please, try to stick with doujin / touhou / kancolle / shoegaze songs. Avoid meme / denpa songs, visual K & mainstream songs / stuff overly unrelated from this wordpress’ contents.
There’s no guarantee your requests will be take in consideration if they don’t fit such criteria. Of course any occurrence will be marked, notified and explained under this page.

– サリー – 夜に向かって這う直線: [15/03/2016] I’ve been translating this song for days, and it’s full of words that, more than difficult, are completely random. They seem to be out of place, as if someone took them and smashed them forcedly inside the lyrics. I couldn’t simply be satisfied of how the translation was turning out.
– I’ve found the lyrics for Vengeance From Dark by La Kia, but I won’t post them because the song is in english. You can read them here (thanks to Remilia)
– About “Moonlight Adjudicator”, I can’t translate it because I can’t grasp most of the romajis for this song. Some readings are different from the usual ones, and the voice is way too covered by instruments / overall unclear for me to post this song without having it feel incomplete. If you have romajis for this song, pass them to me, I’ll keep on translating it as soon as I have them.
– Being “Re;Re;Refrain”‘s lyrics too confusing (almost 50% random engrish) it was switched with another song by the requester.
– About “チルの☆プリンセスさまっ♪ マジBAKA2000％”, I don’t find this song appropriate for this wordpress. It’s more a meme than a song, and its lyrics don’t make much sense / I’d rather avoid publishing it in here.
– Tears of Today – Eclipse is locked due copyright issues. Once the requester will get the permission to use the lyrics posted on the band’s official website, I’ll work on the request.
– Lyrics scans provided for “Changeling” are too blurry for me to figure out some sections, waiting for more HQ scans / sources.
