    Is that possible? the PC version already have a fan-translation. Is it possible to take that and apply it to the Vita version? If so, is that possible for Chaos;Head as well?
    If it is possible, how difficult would it be to do something like that?

    Of course it's possible. Everything's possible. Though it won't be as simple as just copying a plaintext English PC file and pasting it into a decrypted Vita .vpk. The difficulty would depend on the filesystems used. Some games are significantly easier to translate than others because of how their files are structured. We wouldn't know how difficult it would be until someone opened the game up and tried out for themselves. And someone has actually looked into it. I can't link it because of piracy concerns, but just google "Chaos;head english vita".

    That being said, I'd much rather see effort being put into a Chaos;Child translation instead.

    1. Chaos;Head uses rUGP engine which means it's going to be hell to work with.

    2. Someone got text insertion working for Fate/Stay Night but the translation is crap, so there's really no point in doing that. The font used in-game is also rather terrible and not at all good for English text. The text rendering also appears to be hard-coded to be fixed width.

    3. Hollow Ataraxia is basically useless without Fate, and I'm not sure if they've been able to insert text or not yet.

    Tried inserting a few english lines into [Realta Nua] just to see how it looks:

    I can share my findings if someone interested in porting translation.

    Hi! I'm interested in your findings (I even registered here only to ask you about it) and would like to know the way to port FSN english translation to Vita-version (though I'm not an expert at hacking/programming and probably won't be too helpful if this task requires some hardcore skills in this area, I would like to do the best I can). Answer me pls if you can (and would want to) share it, please.

    Nah, as you can see no one is interested besides you. I don't want to spend time and put my effort into something people doesn't care about.

    Sad, but I understand. Thanks for showing that this is possible, though.

    I care about and I know other people that would, I just don't know if gauging interest from a thread here would be indicative of overall interest.
