    Well, being sick, i had a lot of time to surf the net last week and i stepped in some interesting sites online.
    They not talk about the "technical" aspect of romhacking (especially the first site) but just the translation itself and how it works.
    I picked 3 articles from the first site but you can find more:
    Checklist for a professional translator
    Surprising facts about translations and copyrights
    Why pets are good for you

    The second page is a translator from English/Japan to Dutch, i don't want to make some commercial for this site but he has many interesting facts about some known games and naturally you get an idea of how much a game translation (only translation, not implementing the changes into the game) will cost.
    Loekalize

    Let me know what you think of this.

    Good read Auryn, thanks. I knew Loekalize though, it's a classic :P
