    Hello

    First of all, sorry if my english is bad, but I'm Belgian and...
    I would like to make a translation of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, because the french translation is very... bad.
    But, I know how to open a Nintendo DS rom, but I don't know how to translate it...
    If someone can help...

    Learning to translate and translating a rom takes a long time. If you don't have ANY knowledge on hacking or translating I suggest you give up.

    I know it's difficult, but if everybody says it to me, I'll never learn...

    How can we have good, new translators if everyone tells them to give up. I have the same question.

    When the extent of your knowledge is knowing how to use a program someone else made to unpack a rom, you've got alot more to learn before you even attempt a translation, and the chances that someone here will be willing to teach you are very slim.

    I think people have started ignoring you because you have something like 3 topics asking the same thing.
    Make that four...

    No one is going to hold your hand through the process of learning how to hack roms. There are some guides that focus on NDS rom hacking, but not a lot and none of them cover everything.

    You need to look at different games and figure out how things work in them. Some games are rather simple, while most can be complex in some or even all areas. The complex games take a great deal of time to get everything figured out. It takes a huge amount of patience and a whole bunch of your free time.

    Pokemon is basically the only game that has a tool specifically programmed for it and is publicly available. All of these Pokemon projects are kind of misleading for people just starting to rom hack. It makes it look easy. It is only easy for the Pokemon projects. The other games? You would have to have the programming knowledge to create your own custom utility/tool to do the same thing.

    If you have the time, patience, and dedication for what you want to do, you should open up the rom and look at the different files. Figure out where everything is and how everything works. Play around with it and learn as you go. In the end, you are going to have to teach yourself. Sure, people may help you some here and there with specific questions you may have but you need to figure out the basics yourself.

    The majority of people don't take it serious.....all the ones I seen expect to download a program or two and start magically translating right away and using google to translate games is a joke in my book.....

    yeah, but there could be some genius hacker out of all of them that happens to need a bit of a boost at the beginning, right? everyone's gotta start somewhere...

    Don't use Any Online Translators, such as Google or Bing, etc, Because that'll ruin your Translation...You're gonna have to Change this, add that, delete this, etc. Just beware of Online Translators...
