I'd like to know if it's a good thing to translate Japanese games with a translator. Because I'd like to help but I don't speak Japanese.... If it's the case, could you please give me the name of a good one?

No, it's definitely not a good thing. The translator will not only mix up the word order, it will also translate some things completely wrong. It's never a good idea to do a translation using an online translator.

But what you can do, if you have any programming experience, is figure out how to extract the script from the game and into a format that a human translator can work with. You'll be much more likely to find a willing translator if you show that you'll be able to take care of the rest.

no offense but you really can't do much to help with translating unless you know some programing or the language. Translation software at its best has about a 75% accuracy, it would actually waste more time using it as then someone would have to go back and clean up the inaccuracies.
