lol, translation [Dec. 9th, 2007|10:36 am]
Legend of Heroes VI Sora no Kiseki Translation

Just a quick note to anyone still out there.

We haven't forgotten about the translation, so relax. It's just been put on hold for a short while, as floofy explained in her last post, because of stresses put on us from work and school. (Read my latest journal entry if you want more details, but I won't bore you here.)

Floofy and I want to see the game in English, but the fact is, we aren't professional translators who know Japanese like the back of our hand (SHOCK!), we have lots of pressures in everyday life, and after coming home from a long day of class and work its difficult to work up the energy to spend my remaining free time deciphering the relatively complex dialogue in the game and rephrasing it so native English speakers can gather the full meaning. It's tiring, but I'm extremely proud of the work I've done so far. We've already put a buttload of hours into this project, and we don't want to see it die, either.

That said, its another challenge to coordinate the several translators we have working on the project, none of us with expert-level Japanese knowledge, in order to produce concise translations. Expect minor inconsistancies whenever we get a beta out.

Anyway, due to certain circumstances, we're trying to get ourselves back on track. We just got ourselves a new translator and I will be resuming work once finals are over, about a week before Christmas. I'll try and put as much work into it as possible over the winter break.

Just for reference, the text from the Prologue is roughly 25% done, most of the books are finished, menus are done as far as I know, and random other strings have been translated. We'll be keep on keepin' on in the following weeks. Apologies for the quiet-ness.

I'm not dead yet! [Oct. 18th, 2007|11:47 am]

Making yet another note to let people know that yes, we are all still alive. We've been very quiet because all of us go to school, or have really busy jobs, and whatnot.

We will keep people posted as we start winding down near Christmas. I've been poking at the translations and reworking the website, but lately my job has had me exhausted (I'm a web design intern).

We'll keep everyone posted as we get through this- especially as finals is coming up for the students in our group.

Legend of Heroes VI: Sora no Kiseki FC Translation Project [Jun. 20th, 2007|10:27 pm]

[mood |determined]

Well, well, well. Here we are. All of us on the net that we could scrounge together have finally begun to work together to try and get Falcom's masterpiece into english. The project is already fairly well underway, and all of us are die-hard Falcom fans who don't want to give up until its complete. Our staff consists of the following so far:

floofy, or togapitoion, Japanese genious who started the project long ago and has never given up. We have her to thank for much of this project.

ViperDan, who is to thank especially for volunteering his programming expertise and support all around.

Rogue, our extremely talented image editor, so you don't need to stare at black boxes and poorly optimized jpeg engrish in-game ;),

Rasqual, the greatest frenchie around, who's managed to hack the game's script and graphics routines all by himself. Buy him a round, someone!

Nimue1016, or Nemo, who is one of the reasons we're all congregated together and synergizing our efforts, and is helping through translation.

And myself, also known as alerith or beni, Japanese translator who has seen enough wasted talent and wants to get this game in english for once and for all!

If you would like to contact one of us, lend us your expertise, and so on, let one of us know through the following contact info:

floofy: vorfeed at swordbreaker dot com
ViperD: dwester83 at gmail dot com
Rogue: thelastmetroid_x at hotmail dot com
Rasqual: floofy.no.mikata at rasqual.silk dot com
Nemo: nimue1016 at gmail dot com
alerith: alerith at charter dot net

You should be able to get through to at least one of us. We look forward to all your support as we try and blaze our way through this very ambitious project. Thanks and look forward to updates on progress in the future!
