Not a Chapter: Patreon thief

Yes, I have been notified about this.

Apparently, there’s a patreon that’s stealing my works and he is doing a really bad job at hiding that they are not mine.
I have a lot of quirks in my translations and I changed a few names to make them easier to the tongue, so there’s a lot of easy ways to find out if they are mine. Not only that, it is clear from the english in his actual posts and announcements that his english is not good at all. The level is just not congruent with the material he is apparently translating.

And it seems I am not the only victim, as that patreon is also taking the chapters of UchiMusume.

I won’t stop you from searching for the site, since hey, it is extremely easy to find in google, but I won’t be posting it here.

In any case, this post was simply to raise the awareness that things like this are actually happening, and it is a complete insult to the people that work so hard in those translations.
If the person stealing that job is reading this, STOP. The translating community is small in web novels to begin with, and what you are doing will not only insult all that hard work, it will destroy that motivation as they see how someone is utilizing their work in such a dirty and unethical manner, not only that, it will make new aspiring translators feel reluctant to take the chance.

Don’t be the one that destroys the chance for this community to grow.


Well, I was already planning on opening a Patreon page myself, so I thought this was a good opportunity.

THIS is my actual patreon site: https://www.patreon.com/isekaitranslations

Right now there’s not much, since it is a page 100% for support.

If you guys have any suggestions in rewards and goals, feel free to give them. I would love to hear them out.

    It’s not only the paetron thief but there are also those aggregator thiefs that is profiting from your translation. And there’s 11 of them and counting.

    1. I don’t personally know any black hat.
      ….. but my tentacles can reach the deep web and I’m sure some are lurking there, willing to do it. With a hefty sum.

      We should react more professionally, my friend. Yes, that guy’s a thief, but attacking him personally like that won’t change anything. It’ll pester him at most, but I’m sure he will find another way to overcome it.

      We have to be more ‘thorough’ when dealing with this kind of criminal.

  4. I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.

  7. Have you ever tried to block the right click and the selector? I’ve saw it in many translators’ websites and seems to work stopping the thieves.

  10. Well I only come to this site so I am oblivious about patron. If it’s the dark arts of tracing…. well if it’s been cleared up at its source than people should just come here.

  11. Have you talked to Patreon about this?

    Ten to one they have stuff in their TOS about using their service for illegal things, and stealing someone else’s translation is entirely illegal. If you got his Patreon shut down, he’d definitely feel it.

    Also, it might well be worth throwing a line or two into your translations like ‘Posted on isekailunatic.com’, so if he just copy/pastes, his audience will have a chance to see the truth.
