Tonight I experienced the joy of navigating the Japanese eShop with Google Translate's camera mode. I grabbed the Monster Hunter XX demo. I was wondering if many of you have tried Translate's camera mode for other games. What games ended up having rubbish translations and what games do you find that work well with this?

Haven't tried it as I can read Japanese just fine, but most games should translate properly unless they are part English or they have too long titles. Google translate doesn't take into account grammar differences and won't recognize 2 separate languages at once, so the most you can get away with is the "s" some sentences in Japanese can have (or other tiny stuff like that) and the ones that have names shorter than 5-6 words...

and you want to pair that with one of the harder types of OCR in a less than optimal environment for it?
Good luck with that.
