Legend of Heroes VI Sora no Kiseki Translation
We aren't them. We're our own group. That's why. And this isn't Utawarerumono. This is something else entirely. I don't know the scope of that game, but understand that this, in of itself is a massive game. It's not something that can easily be done in short order.
Most professional companies won't take Sora no Kiseki because it's more translation work than they can /afford/. (Quoted from XSEED)
Please be patient with us.

I'm against the idea of merging with mirrormoon if it's for nothing more than a faster release of FC. I love ED6 for its script, and if the translation can be as endearing as the original, years of waiting would be preferable to seeing my favourite characters (Olivier!!) butchered by an awkward translation.
I'm also curious as to whether much work is being done on the NPCs? Since I'm replaying ED6 to see all of what the NPCs have to say, I'd be happy to submit translations for them.
Yay! Another Olivier fan! ♥ He's actually one of my issues with translating. I want to make sure he is portrayed properly, and his dialogue is so important to why he's such an awesomely lovable character. XD
However, how scripts are in pieces- little chunks of the game's text is, more or less, are packaged together throughout the game's data. We're just taking each little package as we get to it. Some taking longer than others (ie, magic, items, etc etc), but we've got people who can help with the quirky speech patterns and stuff (I have so much hate for Kevin in SC right now, for example).
This is going to be a patchable translation, as you can see. We're doing everything we deem necessary, Maps, diary images, combat, skills, and dialogue for both PCs and NPCs.
Especially in a game as story intensive as Sora no Kiseki. There are instances where you can get clues and major ideas of what the baddies are up to through the actions of NPCs and whatnot. They may not be /crucial/ to the game's story, but they are just as involved. The events through FC and SC together are world-changing for most of the residents of Liberl.
