default Otome Game Translating Group

Post by Saicachii on 30/07/13, 06:43 pm

Hello there! ^^

I am, as probably a lot of you here, an otome game lover! ~ And is obviously disappointed in the English otome game market (thank god for hakuoki)
The existing groups that translates otome games doesn't really seem to pick up the games I want >_<
Sooo I'm basically wondering if there are some good people interesed in starting a translation Group with me ^^ (if this question is allowed here).
I would buy the games and help with translating, but of course I'd need more translators and hackers (I have no idea how to do that kind of stuff).
If someway possible, I'd like to encourage the players to actually buy the game and not download it (I Heard there's one Group that has made it so you have to buy it Before applying the English patch so you can play but I don't really remember how), since, of course, I want them to support the companis creating the games!

Wow I'm just babbling aren't I D: well if anyone's interested or have any good ideas, please tell me ^^
 
Games I'm interested in translating:
1. Hiiro no Kakera
2. Amnesia
3. Any Otomate Game

Please ask me if you have any questions!

/Saica

Hello! It's always nice to see more people getting interested in translating otome games, especially since the majority of visual novels getting translated are aimed towards males (not that that's a bad thing though!). I am interested in helping you out but maybe you can check out Marchen Translations (http://marchentranslations.wordpress.com/) first? /shamelessly self-plugs

The group I think you're talking about is Bishounen Gemu (the leaders of that group actually created this forum!), but they used a program called Visual Novel Reader where they "subbed" the game instead of hacking it iirc; instead of having the English put directly into the game's engine, it would be a in text box hovering over the Japanese text. That, and they also set up a wiki for Starry Sky. But we haven't heard anything from them in months so at this point I assume that they are dead. Also the official copy thing really only works with PSP games since sometimes the ISO can reject the patch depending on the source that the patch is based upon. PSP games are very hard to hack, which is why most fan translation groups opt for PC games instead. You can do PSP game translations in the form of a wiki or a series of youtube videos, but the latter has you at risk for getting your videos removed and overall, people prefer not having to switch between their computer and PSP screens to understand what's going on.

I apologize if I sound like I'm trying to discourage you, I'm honestly not! I just wanted to point out a few things to you. If you get a team together or have anymore questions, please feel free to contact me!

Thank you so much for your reply <3 The group looks awesome, is it your translation group? ^^ I think I'd like to start my own though since I'd like to get Hiiro no Kakera and Amnesia translated!
I'd be really happy if you'd like to help out! Do you translate/hack? smile 

Ooooh yes that's right! It's a shame if they completely gave it up I was looking forward to their Projects! The games I'd actually like to translate are usually on psp, ps2 or ds >_< and not pc unfortunately

It's not exactly my group, I just work as an editor xD While I can understand Japanese I wouldn't be a very reliable translator since my overall skills are still weak and I'm technologically impaired when it comes to hacking. But if you ever need an editor or someone to help you manage things, you can always shoot me a message smile

On the topic - the more translation groups the better. Unfortunately, I can't be of any help,because I don't know Japanese... at all Crying. Still, good luck :D .

Hello!
I'm currently translating both Hiiro no Kakera DS and Amnesia for PSP. Progress is slow, but you can check out what's been translated here: ogtproject.tumblr.com
It's my blog for translations.

I don't mind people picking up the same projects as me. I just thought I should let you all know.
