Welcome to Verdant Lore!
Founded by translators with experience in the novel translation field, we have since become a Hong Kong based translation group. We strive to share stories and novels written by Hong Kong and Taiwanese authors to the English audience, bringing something new to the novel translation scene. Different from mainstream novels written by authors from China, these novels often have different writing styles and more distinct local cultures within them.
By ‘going global locally’, we collaborate with mainly local Hong Kong authors, translators, and artists to promote their works for the world to appreciate. It is our goal to preserve local culture and encourage authors to be creative with their works by helping them reach more audiences. We also aim to serve as a platform for local novel enthusiasts to give a go at translating the novels they like. Novels listed on our website are translated with the approval of the corresponding authors.
