    Hello, I figured you all could help. I found a translation online for a game, and I also have that game. I was wondering if you all could point me to some resources that would explain how to translate the game itself. All I'm looking to do is replace the text in the game. Could you all help?

    Currently, I have zero expierience, and I got a bunch of books about hexidecimals, table programming, etc. I was wondering if someon with translator expierience could act as a mentor for me, to help me out here and there. I would be doing most, if not all, of the work, I would just need someone to help out a complete newbie like me. And yes, I understand it's rediculous to try a translation for something like that with no expierience, but eveyr has to start somewhere.
    Also, I would like to know if the disgaea translation was discontinued due to and official english release being announced.
    DarthNemesis: Thaks for the link. Really helpful. I think it will take a while, but I think already having the actual translation done will save some time.

    No, it's okay, I was just curious as to why you even bothered translating any of it if it was going to be translated officially anyways/

    Either they didn't know or didn't want to wait.
