    The PSP like the DS has a file system, you probably already use tools (UMDGen being the tool of choice for many) to play with it for relinking and compressing games.
    They are equally good at extracting and inserting files (indeed their relinking options and file system "tweaking" is actually better than any GUI based DS tool I know of.

    Other than that business as usual; figure out how text is stored, formatted and the limitations of the display system, figure out how graphics are stored.

    Most people I have known/met that ever modded any PSP games are programmers, so they create their own programs, and figure out the developers of the game do it. Almost all games are made differently, so there isn't just one 'universal' program to help you translate.
    You can extract the game with Winrar, UMDgen is more of making the ISO file. Then you look around the files to see how they are stored ad how they were compiled. If the game is just one big file in the USDIR directory, then you need to find a way to extract that big file. Of course, there is a lot more things to do to translate successfully.
    You need to know how to program, if you don't, then good luck figuring it out, and hope someone is able to help you.

    EDIT - Oh yeah, and people use some type of hex editor to try and find a clue of the file they are looking at.

    Sometimes you can find a simple dat program. The thing is you still need a competent programmer.

    No offense or anything, but your grasp of grammar concepts suggests you really aren't ready to start translating anyways.
