Welcome to volare! We were founded in Dec 2015, and are an off the beaten path translating shop with an amazing select coterie of novels. We seek to give a voice to the atypical, the quirky, the flabbergasting plot twists and are equally fascinating ourselves. 😀 Our library is filled with anything from action, adventure, comedy, fantasy, horror, military fiction, romance, science fiction, and wuxia/xianxia.
volare is a publisher of translated Chinese fiction, with the site offering ~20 online web fiction serials, translated from their Chinese web novel or published novel counterpart. Chinese web novels have gathered huge steam in recent years and there are now hundreds of thousands of very well written, engrossing novels ranging anywhere from fantasy to romance to action and to horror. The authors range from amateur to professional authors who’ve had their works adapted for the big screen or addicting dramas.
The translation scene to bring them to English readers has really sprung up in the last two years, and we have one of the most eclectic and engrossing selection of Chinese web novels around. We started off as volaretranslations, then shifted our name to volarenovels to indicate the ability of our work to be enjoyed on a stand alone basis as well.
We have partnerships with various Chinese literature companies, including but not limited to: 17K, Zongheng, iReader, and Xiang5.
Let’s soar into good stories and set our imaginations free!
