Best Machine Translation Novel Sites
The novel you were reading got dropped by the translator? You got a cliffhanger and you have to wait for the next day to know what happened but you are dying to know what happens next?
If yes, your solution is Machine translation.
In this post, I am gonna discuss about the best machine translation sites best for light novels and web novels.
What is Machine Translation(MTL) of Novels? It is the translation of novels in the other language(Chinese, Japanese, and Korean) to the English Language(Mainly) using programs like google translate, Deepl, or any other translation program.
What are the reasons people read Machine translated novels?
- Novels you are reading gets dropped.
- Novel doesn’t even get picked by the translators
- You wanna be ahead of other readers.
But there are many problems with this approach like grammar is incorrect, gender, names, etc are misplaced. Until these problems are solved, MTLing the novels and reading them is not a good idea.
I mainly read MTLed novels in the case of Cliffhangers. Also, in the case of the novels I was reading gets dropped. I know reading MTLed novels harms brain cells but hey! Beggars can’t be the chooser.
Here are the Top 5 Machine Translation Sites for Novels. The list goes from “Barely Readable” to “Readable”.
Light Novel Machine Translation, in short, LNMTL is the first MTL site for Novel. Most of the novel translated here is Chinese Novels. But the novels on this site are barely readable. This site uses its own translation program. If you choose this site, a headache may possibly occur. You have been warned.
The above image is a small part of the first chapter of the Emperor’s Domination novel. As you can see in the image, the sentence structure, grammars, and others are in a perfect arrangement.
Novels cannot be Requested(unless paid). The novels are chosen by votes.
One advantage of this site is the glossary created by the community of MTL readers. If anyone wants those glossaries of the novel, they are free to take.
I found this site by accident. This site has a large number of Chinese novels. They also use the glossary for translation. The translation of this site is similar but a bit better than LNMTL.
They take the request for new novels and also update the novels with the glossary so the translation gets a bit fine.
MTLNovel uses google translation software to translate the novels. They haven’t use the glossary yet, but they said they will use soon. Since the translations are from Google, the sentence structure and grammar are a level better than LNMTL and Machine-Translation.
I hope they start to use glossary soon. The translation will get better by many levels in case a glossary is used. They take novel requests but only Chinese novels.
This site uses its own translation program and has a good translation than the above three sites. Sentence structure and Grammar are fine than the other translation sites. Most of the novels are Chinese but there are very few Japanese and Korean Novels too.
They take sponsored novels mostly but in the case of the glossary provided, they take free requests too. They also have a big discord community.
JPMTL has hundreds of Korean, Japanese, and Chinese Novels. They also have manga too. They use their own translation program. Their translation is fine in the case of Korean and Japanese novels and good in the case of Chinese Novels. JPMTL hasn’t used the glossary yet.
JPMTL takes free requests of Chinese, Korean, and Japanese Novels as long as the free source for the novel is provided.
These 5 are the translation sites where you can find machine-translated novels. I suggest you not use the first two sites as some of your brain cells may die while reading.
If you have questions like: How can I read this translation? This is so bad. Then the admin of LNMTL has a good answer.
