Because the copyright, I can not share the file directly, so make this tutorial.
In China we have a proverb "授人以魚不如授人以漁",it means "It is better to teach a man to fish than to give him a fish."
I learn something from forum, so share something to forum. Thanks for everyone share something.
This tutorial not fully translate all language text, up to 90%.

You need:
1. A Hacked Wii U, it can run homebrew_launcher apps.
2. FTPiiU_Everywhere apps.
3. Download English or other language file "AllMessage.szs" by yourself.

First:
Backup your Japanese console NAND, OTP, keys first !!!! And store to the PC. Once brick, you can unbrick by hardmod method or via Tiramisu to recovery.

Steps:
1. Run FTPiiU_Everywhere apps via homebrew_launcher.
2. PC ftp tool connect to WiiU, I used FileZilla.
3. Browse wiiu folder below path in filezilla, and backup(download) AllMessage.szs file to your PC. (Once bricked, you can via Tiramisu autoboot to recovery.)
/storage_mlc/sys/title/0005001010040000\content\JpJapanese\Message
4. Now you can upload your language file (English/Spanish or other language AllMessage.szs) to below path and overwrite it:
/storage_mlc/sys/title/0005001010040000\content\JpJapanese\Message (WiiU Menu)
/storage_mlc/sys/title/0005001010047000\content\JpJapanese\Message (System Settings)

If you need other title change to English, you can overwrite below path AllMessage.szs file:
/storage_mlc/sys/title/00050010/10048000/content/JpJapanese/Message (Parental Controls)
/storage_mlc/sys/title/00050010/10049000/content/JpJapanese/Message (User setting)
/storage_mlc/sys/title/00050010/1004C000/content/JpJapanese/Message (Daily Log)
/storage_mlc/sys/title/00050030/1001500a/content/JpJapanese/Message (Friend list)

5. Exit FTPiiU_Everywhere to Menu and check the System Setting language.

If you want to change Home Menu to English, you need a modded Hbm.pack file to overwrite below patch file:
/storage_mlc/sys/title/00050030/1001000a/content/Common/Package (Home Menu)

If you want to change Download management to English, you need to download scope.msbt.zlb from WiiU or JNUStool: /storage_mlc/sys/title/00050030/1001800a/content/message/US_English/scope.msbt.zlb
and then overwrite to:
/storage_mlc/sys/title/00050030/1001800a/content/message/JP_Japanese (Download management)

Warning: If brick your console, it's your choice, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK! Please make sure you had backup your nand and have method to restore it.

This method works in my Euro console and tested for Japanese into Chinese translate menu.

How to modify the Hbm.pack to your language:

You need:
1.Hbm.pack (All region it's the same file and contain all language text)
2.Kuriimu2 (https://github.com/FanTranslatorsInternational/Kuriimu2/releases)

Steps:
1. Use JNUSTool 0.3b download any region HomeMenu title file "HBMMessage.szs", e.g: java -jar JNUSTool.jar 000500301001000A

2. Use Kuriimu2 open Hbm.pack (Dont use open with plugin), you can see all language folder in file. Maybe you know how to modify already.

3. Choose your language(any language just fine) and extract the "HBMMessage.szs" file and then in JpJapanese/Message/, use this extract file to replace orginal file.

4. Save as, done, now you can upload this modified Hbm.pack to your mlc.

Nice. I made sure to screenshot the post and save the files since it may get removed later depending on what mods say about this file as it may include copyrighted content.

Could probably download the Spanish files using I think jnus. It's command line but easy to use. I was able to download health and safety with it.

Can you play mario party 10 USA on Japanese console using this mod?
You can play Mario Party 10 with US language on JPN console but you have to download JPN version of Mario Party and US version. U INSTALL JPN version and then you have to change language files extracted from US version. Use ftpiiu for it. Works on mine JPN console.

don't know how big those files are, but you can decrypt the game with usb loader gx, then swap the files, then use nus packer to make them installable. keep a backup of the game, then you won't have to use ftpiiu at all. ;)

no, you're right. with that EU version of the home menu, it took seconds. your way is probably better and faster actually.
