    So you have no coding experience, nor any working usage of Japanese, and you want to translate a game? I see some potential hurdles. Good luck with the loli game though.

    Actually, the DS has tonnes of text-based games: Higurashi, 99 Tears, Tokimeki: Girls Side 1 and 2, Days of Memories 1 and 2, and I'm sure there's a lot more than that. It's just that very few of them have been translated into english. A shame really.

    I'm bored so why not, note that im new myself so i can't help too much:
    Firstly extract the rom using dsbuff, ndstool or whatever
    Next you will need to find where the script is stored
    Sometimes its obvious (script.dat etc), sometimes parts are stored in different files but it differs with different games, anyways find the file, open it with windhex, open the shiftjis.tbl, options - view data as unicode
    From here you can scroll down, have a look at the text or whatever, go edit - dump text, the start should be 00000000, for the end scroll to the bottom type in the ending. Name the file (text.txt? anything works) and click done
    Open the file in a text editor, i use emeditor but some others work fine too, anyways the file will, well should be one massive line containing a load of crap
    Scroll along until you find some text, press enter, scroll enter, repeat until it looks clean (see ), else batch remove all the crap (search - replace, you can replace text with nothing) or simply type in the first sentence or something and search
    Anyways say the first sentence is "???", which is "Hai." which means yes, yup, yeah etc
    ??? is 82CD82A28142, 12 in total, 4 each (http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=77749&hl=)
    Meaning when you replace it, it's gotta be 12 in total. I'm sure there are ways around this but nothing i can you with
    Sometimes you can use 2 byte characters (A = 41) but sometimes you have to use 4 byte characters (? is 8260)
    Note the difference between the 2. A?
    Say i wanted to replace ??? with Yes. or ????Do a hex search for 82CD82A28142 and replace it with either 5965732E (Yes.) or 8278828582938144 (????)
    ????is too long, unless you use ?e? without the ?which would be prefect, it may be fine here but when translating it will cause a load of problems, sometimes you see menu translations like: AtkPwr, Mna Pot,
    Yes. is too short but you should be able to knock it up with spaces (a space is 20, so 5965732E2020)
    I may as well point this out, some games don't have have any text, all the script could be stored as images or something, some games simply fuck up the second you change anything, some games actually have translated files just lurking in the rom amongst other things
    Anyways find out where the text is, dump it, translate and replace. Easy... right?

    Edit: i got the rom while typing this, had a look and well... lol:
    The folders go:
    \data\_Data etc
    Theres a script folder:
    \Chapter00
    \Chapter01
    etc

    The first sentence is "???…??????" which is in \data\_Data\Script\Logue\Chapter000_0_100.dat
    Its 82C182BD82AD816382A482E982B9815B82C88142, 40
    "Test " is "5465737420202020202020202020202020202020"
    "???? " is "8273828582938294202020202020202020202020"
    Woot!
    Both worked, have fun:

    What I would want out of the translation is what they say so I know how they feel... And what I should, and should NOT do. Ask him though. I have a different opinion, and he want it the most.

    Rename it .txt and open it in emeditor or something that supports shift-jis
    You will get one line containing a load of crap and some text
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Note the "???…??????" , move it to the next line and delete all the ($00)($14) etc, they are used by the game in whatever way, no need to change them http://img398.imageshack.us/img398/3954/exampleov9.jpg (the ???? is from last night [​IMG])
    After you have all the text (this is just from the start of the game), translate and replace it, just remember you need to replace it in the original 00_0_100.dat file
    Luckily as i stated before, you can use normal letters like im typing now

    Japanese language support is required for displaying japanese characters on Windows.
