    Hey all,
    I would really like to translate Dragon Ball DS that just got ripped, but I have no experience in DS ROM hacking.
    In other translation projects they just post the .bin in google docs and we translate it.
    So if anyone would be kind enough to rip the text I'll be more than happy to work on translating it.
    I like doing the story more, but I guess working on the menu first would help people out more.

    Alright, lets get going!

    EDIT: awesome Noitora has posted some stuff that needs translating.
    Go here and get started!

    For a start, menu(s) in English will be welcome.

    *I do not have the game as yet, I am assuming that the menus etc. are in Japanese.

    I've only got though the menu and opening so far.
    Everything after "Touch the Screen!" is in Japanese.

    Translating the opening looks fun, it seems to be in all if not mostly in ??(Kana).

    do you have a screenie of the main menu?
    Since there are translators I might start a translation project but I have to play a little more of the game first.
    Edit:It seems easy to translate this game, I'm already at it, trying a few things.

    This.

    Unless of course the Japanese version is ridiculously different, which I doubt.

    They'll change the voices only probably.. if the game has any..
    Anyway, if that's case, it's still easier to get the english text from that version and switch it [​IMG]

    NO, now you have foiled my plans to make more people look at my blog!
    no really, I guess posting it here would have been a better idea.
    Sorry about that.

    And I'm glad i got people working on it.
    I'm still offering to help if anybody posts the Japanese scripts.

    seems to have a few "voices" but whatever they say sounds exactly the same in any language.
