plumlizi was founded in April 2017 by plum and lizi with the burning desire to share quality translations and to cultivate an export of Chinese high and popular culture through a mindful curation of an amazingly select coterie of novels.

May every novel bring a little dose of happiness to our readers’ lives.

The tagline was pinned by Armored Raven who invented our slogan as, 

We are translators. We believe in ‘better late than never’. You cannot pronounce translate without ‘late’.
