comment What software applications are used for translating a book?
There are several diff tools out there showing two files next to each other and scroll down both files simultaneously. They are made for comparison, but can be used for your purpose also. If you also need spell checking they may not be the best option.

comment Plain translation or cultural adaptation?
You can get that interest if you show that your novel works in Spanish (works = sells).

comment Plain translation or cultural adaptation?
I wouldn't spend a second thinking about translation when I haven't published it in my native tongue yet. What would be the point?

So you are self-publishing it in Spanish?

comment Is it good to publish a novel online for free?
Is your concern publishing online or is it publishing for free? Sounds like a rather broad question in both cases so. Could you specify what troubles you?

comment Where should I go with this short story?
Hi, @lwayt, I am afraid that this is not how this site works. Let me explain: We are not a discussion forum. We are a question and answer site. To make it valuable for other users, too, the questions should be specific, but not too narrow. The main problem here is: You have several questions in this post. The idea is: One post -> one question (if it's not an answer for sure. There can be several answers per question). Best would be you split your question and only show that part of your story which is necessary to get your point. Keep the question short, so people read and answer it.

comment Can I plug a loophole in my magic rules without rewriting the whole novel?
Make it a black hole and be done with it. You know, everyone is too afraid too approach a black hole ;)

comment How explicit can violence and sex be in a YA novel?
Does your definition of YA means: for young adults or about young adults? "About" would not mean implicitly that the main audience are young adults also.

comment Do romances need to have a happy ending?
Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy, not a romance. I guess same is true for the other three, but I haven't read/seen them.

comment Dripfeeding New Concepts to a Reader
> "... that all my readers, whoever they may be, extract the right and same information from the explanation" - That may exist in Disneyland, but not in the real world. Forget about "all readers" and "right information". The road to perfection ends at chasm above hell. Just one more step and all is perfect. I promise.
