Remember the funny Japanese McDonald's crew training game called McDonald's eCDP that was dumped online about 2 years ago?
We have been working on a fan English translation of this game for quite a while, and I'm happy to announce that we are releasing the first finished version of the patch!

This English translation project had frequently become inactive, and most people thought that the project already died. However, thanks to a recent huge contribution by HopelessInsomniac#2064 (and many other contributors in the past), we have translated all strings in the game!
You can now read the crew guides, take tests and quizzes, and do trainings all in English!

Disclaimer
- This version (v1.0.0) of the patch translates the texts only, we have not yet worked on any graphics.
- Translations are not in the greatest quality, and they might change in future patch versions.

Our Next Goals
- Improve patching scripts and update the instructions/documentations for easier contribution
- Improve the accuracy, consistency and overall quality of the translations
- Translate the graphics, such as the buttons in the Wi-Fi settings screen

Graphics translations might take a while, as none us have good knowledge on how to edit DS game graphics. If you want to help us with the graphics translation, please read the Contribution section.

Contribution
If you found any translation mistakes, typos or gameplay bugs caused as a side effect of patching, please report issues at: https://github.com/eCDP-English/translation/issues
The McDonald's eCDP English Translation Project is fully open source on GitHub! We welcome any piece of contribution that improves this project! Check out our repository: https://github.com/eCDP-English/translation
We also have a Discord server, where you can talk about all sorts of things about eCDP, or anything else! https://discord.gg/3MkYyFnkqG

Patch Download
You can download the latest version of the English translation patch at: https://github.com/eCDP-English/translation/releases/latest

We hope you enjoy the English-translated McDonald's eCDP!

How did it go? Senior manager-san already, I presume?
I'm in charge of a bunch of young, eager recruits at a McDonald's in Matsumoto-shi. I have one recruit, a @JuanMena , that shows a lot of promise, especially when he's on his knees. I can see him moving up in the company really fast. gambatte kudasai...gambatte kudasai.

esmart and esmart 2,0 are curently not dumped anywhere so no.
Both eSMART 1.0 and 2.0 are found & dumped now, however:
- eSMART 1.0 is the exact same game as eCDP
- eSMART 2.0 is essentially eCDP with way less features (and the game stores texts in a different format)
So, we currently don't think it's worth translating them

Oh! That's really cool that you translated it!
I remember it used to be lost media until it was found, and now it's translated.
It's so nice how things go by
