    This is a horrible and hacked-up translation from multiple sources.
    If you are not eager to play the game immediately, and you want a better translation of Ao/Zero, check out these pages:

    Latest patch by @ils: http://gbatemp.net/threads/wip-ao-no-kiseki-english-patch.476713/page-13#post-7494712

    to use this patch you must have Japanese Ao no Kiseki ISO
    download the patch and then apply it using xdelta software
    i got it from here : https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/598/ or you could download directly from xdelta.org

    to patch using Evo version Voice, you could try read this thread by Sinh_Kresnik
    https://www.reddit.com/r/Falcom/comments/6m0yyb/i_managed_to_follow_a_tutorial_and_add_voices_to/

    to patch PC version, you could download the patched scena files and drop it into PC version installation folder
    (look for the same scena folder to replace - don't forget to backup it first)
    to translate the Item/Craft you could use Fugsnarf's uploaded files here

    To improve performance of the PC version, you can use the Zero and Ao hook.

    The binaries of the hooks are located at https://mega.nz/#!RgZiiQ5Z!vUO46D6NGIwbqb1XZ0xZEpyYu7iKiMSQX_M8ZgsfwjQ
    The binaries and source code of the hooks are located at https://mega.nz/#!ZkI12bjQ!0v4F7o7VSha01wJur2lHJyTZHFX_96FlIeH7Dg5brYE

    To install, extract the archive over the directory of the game (where the data, ED_Zero.exe, ED_AO.exe, etc inodes are located)
    Press T to enable Turbo Mode.
    Hold Shift to temporally enable Turbo Mode.

    You can have Arianrhod in your party, and other additional features in Ao no Kiseki. However, these features are Chinese-only.
    You can download the resources here: https://mega.nz/#!Q5hXiC4b!ZRW36aRmIc0aedQ2sQP_8yVsX0y1uWMJNkFWChCqfJ4
    Simply extract the resources to the same directory as the game.

    I got this from Google Translate:

    So I don't think you used Google Translate but you used some other kind of translation software or service. Translating by hand is a lot of hard work, after all.

    Is that the only thing you translated or.......? We need a status on what your working on and what's already done, can't just download this blindly if that's the only thing you've translated

    Honestly, a battle menu + inventory/status menu patch would go a long way with this game. Best to start with that before doing the story text.

    Also, I agree that you need to provide more details on this project

    Hey! Is this really working for PSP? I've already tried doing the instructions that you have posted here but nothing happened. Can you tell me how to do it?

    Code:
    7z -otmp -x /path/to/ao.iso
    cp -RT /path/to/extracted/zip/scena tmp/PSP_GAME/USRDIR/data/scena
    isoinfo -f -i /path/to/ao.iso | nl -nln -s ";" | awk -F ";" '{print substr($2,2) " -" $1}' > sort_file
    mkisofs -sort sort_file -iso-level 4 -xa -A "PSP GAME" -V "PSP GAME" -sysid "PSP GAME" -volset SSX_PSP -p SSX -o /path/to/new.iso tmp

    I thought there was no Japanese PC version for Ao, just the Chinese. Yet your video shows Japanese. I'm kinda confused at what you're playing.
    Nonetheless, if this could work on Evo on Vita, I'd use it in the heartbeat for the NPC dialogue. Mostly because I find this PC version you speak of a little dubious.

    And given this is a work in progress, I'd really recommend making use of that spreadsheet translation and inserting that where applicable if that's at all a viable option.

    Source code of scena now on github https://github.com/uyjulian/ao_text

    I put the files from PSP version into the PC version.

    I already tried using the spreadsheet translation; check out eng_lazy branch. Not all lines are translate.

    Right, but if the two were combined then at least most of the main story dialogue would have a decent translation -- then the rest would be the machine-translated stuff.

    This patch is WIP, so I haven't designed easy tools yet.
    You should wait a bit longer.

    What do you mean fot "wait a bit longer"? Are you saying that you're going to polish or change some stuffs on the translation or are you talking about the psp file patch?

    Any tutorials on getting the PC version to even run properly? It's all in Chinese so I can't make heads or tails of anything. My computer won't even display a lot of the characters in the setup menus. I can run the exe but I've got no sound.
