    What games do you want to translate? Each game has different problem.

    I didn't say translate to English before. ı say that if there is a way to translate other languages via a software or program ı want to use it. And I know these games in english too. I mean that ds games are translated by myself.

    It's a very long and complicated process. There is no simple GUI program that does the work for you. You have to learn some manner of ROM hacking skills.

    Actually Pokemon is quite easy to translate. It takes time, yes, but there's tons of tools that are easy to use.

    Look into thenewpoketext for Pokemon translations. Once you use it, it'll take the whole script and make it into a text file, so you can easily translate it. Then you can insert it back into the ROM. I used it for script changes in my Pokemon hack.
