    I remember back in the gba flashcards era, couple of groups released translation patches, anything similiar going on for DS roms? I would love to play jumb super stars in english.

    And that's the only DS translation that's still going round at the moment. I think more and more Japanese games are including the english options but not for the obscure games.

    Wondering why this is in the R4 section but yeah there are a couple of projects on the go, translations of DS games are pretty easy compared to some other systems as well courtesy of the file system and tendency to use simple fonts (shiftJIS, ASCII and unicode) and pointers, no compression/BIOS routines for compression.

    As for actual released translations there have been a couple of chinese translations, FF3 was done into Thai (as well as few early stage English translations) and a few European language translations were made or are ongoing.
    I was the hacker for a fairly hackish translation of New Super Mario Brothers (US) to French as well (kind of pointless and I did not understand the pointer system when I done it).
    I am involved in a couple of projects but it seems they are stuck due to a lack of translators or because life is a bit hectic right now.

    It'll be here soon, for translation of course.

    P.S. Diehard Fanboys: It won't be here soon.
