Requests are closed
They will reopen on 8 March!

Current request schedule:
#1 – 26 Jan – 1 Feb
#2 – 8 March – 14 March


If you have a request, please leave a comment on this page including the following information: Title, Circle/Artist, Album, Link to Japanese lyrics. If you would like to be notified on Twitter when I publish the translation, feel free to leave your Twitter handle as well!

I aim to complete requests in a timely manner, though I will complete them out of order depending on difficulty. This is a request’s ‘rank’:
1-3: I can translate these in one take. Where possible, I will prioritise them.
4-6: Standard.
>7: More time-consuming, whether it’s because of difficulty or length.

If I forget to add your request to the list, please remind me at any time! You can also change your request as long as the status is ‘Accepted’ and not ‘Started’.

Requests listed as **Accepted** have existing translations. The text will link to them. Please leave another comment if you’d like to replace it with a new request.

I will remove the original lyrics and/or romanisation if it goes against the wishes of the circle. Read this post for more details.

    Hey Releska,

    Hope you’ve been having a nice Summer!

    This is a bit of unorthodox request, but I’m hoping that you’ll be willing to consider it. I was originally going to request either Reverberation or Breathless by Felt, but I saw that you actually already translated both! However, both translations were created a bit over 3 years ago, so I wondered if you would have still translated them the same today with your current knowledge of the language. I’d certainly understand if you’d rather not set a precedent, but I’d also be lying if I said that I weren’t curious to get your thoughts on one or both of the translations. Thanks either way!

    (Also, did the requests open up early? I thought I still had 30 minutes, lol.)

      Hello! Thanks for your well wishes, I hope you’ve been doing well too (^_^)

      I had a look through both of those songs, and I thought I’d make similar, if not exactly the same, translation choices if I went back to translate them today. I was quite surprised! Perhaps I’d try to make them more poetic, though that unfortunately isn’t a niche I really occupy at the moment 😦

      The one thing I’d definitely change is the way I translated 募る (tsunoru). You can still go with ‘violent’, but I think I’d choose something that better reflects the idea of something ‘growing stronger’. Perhaps I’d go with ‘relentlessly strengthening’ or ‘intensifying’ or something like that.

      I guess the good thing about FELT’s lyrics is that they manage to tell coherent stories and convey heaps of emotion and powerful images without necessarily being complicated gramatically. So, they tend to sit quite high on my confidence scale, though there’s still the risk of me misreading sections.

      When I think about earlier translations that could significantly improve with a second look, I think of anything by Diao ye zong, ShinRa-Bansho, and Masa – some of my earlier Masa translations in particular are apparently quite inaccurate T_T

      I don’t know whether the countdown clock on the page synchronises with different time zones, so that might be it? Since I live in Australia my days start sooner compared to people elsewhere in the world, which might explain the time discrepancy…

        Interesting! I guess that just goes to show that you’ve been on the right track for a while now, haha. You’re definitely right about FELT’s lyrics, they’re refreshingly straightforward when compared to the other groups you listed. (Not that I don’t love the complex ones too!) Anyhow, I appreciate your taking the time to look back at those songs!

    Hello,

    I wanted to ask you to translate this song I love very dearly, since my high school years: ‘Kanojo’ by EVO+
    I’ve provided the lyrics here: https://pastebin.com/rwKDVRzJ

    Hello,
    I wanted to ask you to translate ‘DESTRUCTION A TO Z’ by SOUND HOLIC. This was one of the songs that brought me into Touhou and since its relatively new it doesn’t have any translations that I can find.
    Thank you.

      This is embarrassing to admit but I actually started translating this song in 2013 before I started my blog, but I never finished it T_T I’ll go back and read through it and hopefully post it quite soon!

    Hey Releska! got a new request for you
    Hiiragi Kirai’s new song “Eva” is a total bop but I do not trust the translation in the CC on the video so i was wondering if you could do a translation for it?

      Thanks for the request! Unfortunately you’ve already got one on my list from November 😦 The new track looks easier to translate than the other one, so if you’d like I can swap the two and get this one done a little sooner!

    First of all, thanks for translating Guilty Fiction’s text! Could you do protodisco’s next?
    I’d like to switch my request for something else.
    Song: Enter the Xiaolong
    Artist: nyanyannya
    Lyrics:

    (in the comments)
    There are some bits in Chinese, but most of them have Japanese subs (the written lyrics don’t have them but they’re at 1:01, 1:11, 2:51 and 2:55). If you could find a way to translate all of it that’d be great, but it’s fine either way. I’d like it if you could translate the very first line (also not in the lyrics) even though it’s technically already in English.
    The song’s protagonist appears in a bunch of other songs but they’re mostly character-focused songs so you don’t really need to watch them for context (if you’re curious, they’re: Doctor Funk=Beat, Funk Beat≠Junk Beat, Hyper Gore Musasabistic Disappeary Genius, Soulscour and DIZZ Yøu XXX IT?. The latter is also shared with Noel, the guy from Noel de Figaro).
    I noticed that with the site redesign we can no longer see the newest comment at the bottom of the page. Could you bring that back?

      Thanks for that! I’ve been able to find the text from protodisco so I’ll keep it handy. I hope to be able to work on it again once I get through some more November requests.

      I’ve also added the new request to my list! From my end I can still see the newest comment at the bottom of the request page – I readded the comments widget to the bottom of the screen, let me know if that works for you (^_^)
