I often see crappy request for translations for a game. And I mean really crappy and sound so selfish. Some of them are so stupid, e.g. requesting a full translation for Disgaea. Ugh... So here's a little how to ask for a translation. I hope this will bring the noobiness level down in this forum. Is the game out yet? If it's not even out yet, don't ask! Is it going to get a English release? Nobody's stupid enough to start a translation if the game is already going to get an English release. Make sure the game has little to no chance of getting an English release. Do a little research first! Do you have anything to contribute? If the answer is no, for god's sake read the next part. If yes, your chances for getting heard are higher. Don't ask, but convince a romhacker! "Hi, can someone translate game x? kthnxbai!" Chances of getting a translation with a request like this, is close to zero! A much better approach is to try to convince a romhacker. Show what type of game it is, why this game is so great, and why it really needs a translation. Try to attract a romhacker, and hope he's willing to take a translation project. Requesting a game may not work at all, but please do so with a little diginity! A translation project takes very long If someone starts working on a translation, don't expect it to be finished next week. Try several months! It depends on the type of game of course. Don't be ignorant, a translation project takes a lot of effort and time! Even with all this, a request may never be heard. In that case, you may want to try learning how to romhack yourself. I did, and it paid off . (It's not easy, so it only works if you're not an idiot) So, if you understand all this, go and request away! Here is a template for you to use when requesting a translation!
