Is anyone here fluent in Chinese that could help translating these songs to a properly English?

Thanks,

There seems to be existing translations for these songs already, so I edited them in.

守候永恆的愛 is the same as "Love Forever" while 愛在RO雪季 is the same as "Christmas in Love", although they aren't literal translations.


A reminder: please don't run foreign language text through an online translator and paste the results wholesale. It'll be mostly mistranslations.

Well since this was just an initial attempt by me, an online translator would not be bad since I just want to give an initial idea about the CD, if nobody had fixed it then I would edit and leave it blank. Totally agreed online translators are good but it may contain mistranslations, most of time they do.

Thanks Giga for editing it, 100% better than I had initially done.

Honestly, I think no information is better than incorrect information, even if it's just for a short period. I'd rather not come here at the wrong time and tag an album with the awful machine translated artist information or tracklist that someone has temporarily added to an entry.

You can always just post the foreign language text in a discussion thread and ask someone to take a look at it.

Thanks for the info, so next time I will not post if I'm not sure. That makes things even easier for me.
