Translating Korean Novels

Welcome to RubyMaybe~!

Hi! Welcome! We’re friendly here.

This site is for translating Korean novels, usually those that the translator, Miss Ruby, likes.

I tend to prefer novels with protagonists that have a backbone and after my experience with a smut novel, I’d rather not translate another. (I mean, it was a fun novel but damn).

So this is where recommendations go: Here . I have decided to pause recommendations starting May 2nd, 2020 because I have gotten way more than I can ever translate.

Miss Ruby’s Current Projects:
° You’ve Got The Wrong House, Villain °

Miss Ruby’s Finished Projects:
° Lucia °

Miss Ruby’s Next Project:
° Forget My Husband, I’ll Go Make Money °

Note: Unlike Chinese novel chapters, Korean novel chapters tend to be LONG. In my translations, a chapter with 3k+ words will be split into two, a chapter with 4.5k+ words will be split into 3 parts, 6k+ words will be split into 4. I do this because it allows me to pump chapters out faster and more efficiently instead of just ignoring novels with long chapters.

.

PS: If any link is broken, or you were linked here even though there should be a chapter, please comment where exactly you were linked from below and I will fix that ASAP.

PSS: Please DON’T commenting recommendations here. They start to pile up.(I feel like some people ignore this sentence QAQ)

    Thank you very much for all the time you spend on translating for our enjoyment. You’re awesome!
    Ps. Yes, I read before write this. There’s still people out there who read everything before write.

    my bad. i actually realized my mistake after reading this post again right after i commented. i wanted delete or edit it but there’s no option for me to do so, T_T so i just left it here as it is. maybe i just go so excited that you’ll be taking in another novel. T_T

    anyway, i believe they were both dropped

    İf i remember true i saw it has 200 chapters or more. İ can be wrong but won’t we see Domians life? Their child life. İ was really interest with it. Especially the girl Domian Likes in school. If i remember true she was dressed as a man.it can be really good story. Btw i don’t know why after trying so hard i still can’t send my comment…

    Wah. I just read your post about new novel I’ll make money… I definitely gonna read it.
    Looking from the cover…I hope MC never end with her husband. Being solo or new male are better.
    End up with a cheating husband is a nightmare.
    Btw, thank you very much Miss Ruby. Take care of your health. I always wait for your translation. 🍀

    Miss Lucy,

    Your translation for Lucia is amazing! Thanks for your effort!

    After reading your translations, I must say Lucia is now my favourite korean novel! I came here after reading the WEBTOON and have decided to finish the novel. I’m more than impressed!

    In the future if you consider picking up new novel, what about Beatrice? I’m not sure about the whole plot yet coz the comic and English translation still just touched on the beginning part.

    Would love to see more great translations done by you 🙂

      Hi, there’s a recommendation page linked in the welcome page but honestly I’m thinking of stopping recommendations because I’ve gotten way too many and I can’t translate all of it

    I’m always looking forward for your translations every week. By the way, if you could please have “Seduce the villain’s father” as a possible project too. I think you’ll also like the story. I’m dying to read it 😭

    First of all, thank you for your great translations! 💞💞 Regarding your segmentation of chapters, does that mean by the count of the original, your translation is still in chapter 11?

    Hi Miss Ruby ! I just finished reading the whole novel, it took me a week I think because I tried to control myself and read less but it was impossible, the story was too great to slow down ^^’
    I wanted to say THANK YOU ! You are amazing ! The work you have done is just so huge and so good ! And thinking that we we’re able to read all that for free, it’s insane! You are just so talented and generous and I thank you from the bottom of my heart ! ❤
