Message from the Author

 

As the author of "Live Happily and Die in Comfort," it has always been my dream to translate my book into English and reach a wider readers. Upon discovering the impressive translation capabilities of ChatGPT, I was thrilled to embark on this journey.

Although ChatGPT proved to be a proficient translator, there were instances where the original meaning was difficult to accurately convey. In such cases, I had to adjust, provide explanations, or even modify the Chinese phrase to ensure precision in translation. This process required multiple revisions, and I utilized every method within my linguistic ability to ensure that both the Chinese and English meanings were aligned. Overall, the collaboration on this translation was enjoyable, and it took approximately 80 hours of effort.

I am immensely grateful to OpenAI for providing such a powerful translation tool, which enabled me to fulfill my long-held dream. I sincerely hope that the translated version of my book will resonate with English-speaking readers and inspire them to live a happy and comfortable life.

Thank you to ChatGPT and the OpenAI team for their invaluable contribution to this project.

 

Best regards,

Fang-Hsien Chen
