My influence spreads... · 5:11am
So about a week ago, I got a PM from krysohmyz, asking permission to translate my story Daring Do vs Quicksand for Czech bronies. I don't know this language, or anyone who speaks that language, and I wasn't sure what to think. At first, I thought it was a joke of some sort (especially since he had just recently registered). But I, too, have translated things, and I know the amount of work that goes into it; so on the off chance that it was legit, I said sure, just send me a link. Then I didn't think too much more about it.
Well, OP delivered. He recently sent the link to the thread it was posted in as well as the googledoc link for the story itself. I don't speak Czech, so I have no idea how well it flows in another language, but I was able to follow along through the formatting for the most part. If you speak Czech or just want to see what it looks like, there it is.
(do you know how hard it was to not write 'czech it out'? Do you?)
So now Czech bronies are reading a story of mine. This is pretty cool. Soon, my fics shall take over the world! ...if I ever get around to finishing them, that is.
I also don't know how to tell him he spelled 'challenge' wrong without sounding like a complete tool...
