    We're not dead. We are currently stuck trying to fix some pretty huge technical issues that are preventing us from continuing. Once we manage to fix those, we will make an update again. Sorry I can't provide any more info on when that will happen, as we honestly have no idea ourselves.

    You can call us "Dergonu-sama and his kawaii crew."  
    (Serious answer: nah, I don't have any plans to name the group. I don't really see a reason to do so for now at least.)

    Sheesh.  Two and a half months later.  Ick ick ick.  Well, I'm out from under the Giant Heap of RPGs.  I beat Torment: Tides of Numenera, gave up on Mass Effect: Andromeda, beat Persona 5, and then beat Trails in the Sky The Third.  (Whew!)
    Around the time I resurfaced for air, Darklord Rooke's computer crashed.  He's had to spend time rebuilding it and reassembling his files.  This means that it's not 100% clear where progress is on the project right now (since he wasn't around for awhile).  I'll sync up with him hopefully sometime in the near future and update this thread again.
    I'm not dead! I feel happy!

    EDIT: Right now there is a new pass being made to the translation, so there is hope after all.
    For more details, check out the game's kickstarter page.
     
    I know there are already several posts talking about the translation of this game on the forum, but some people might have missed them, as the bulk of the posts were made some time ago, so I figured a new thread might be in order, now that the game is out for everyone.
     
    I have been reading the game for about 2 hours now, comparing the JP lines to the English translations as I read. This translation is very literal, to the point where the English sentences often make little to no sense. The biggest issue seems to be that the translator transliterated everything. It seems like he/she just looked at the Japanese line, and word by word, translated everything directly into an English sentence as is, without any re-wording, giving no thought to how the line would flow in English. And the result is... terrible. From what I can tell, the translator has not made any rookie JP mistakes, like mistaking particles etc, (though keep in mind I could only go by the voiced lines and not the narrated ones, as I do not have the Japanese script in front of me.) That being said, an "accurate" translation doesn't really mean much when the English is barely comprehensible as a result.
    A few examples of what you will see in the translation: (Decay also posted some examples last month, which you can see here.)
    Screenshots:
    You also have things like this:
     
    This is an official localization, and yet it reads like a bad fan TL. We should not be okay with this. Many of us paid money for this.
    From what I can tell, the translation's accuracy is not the issue, but the translator's lack of English knowledge is. A proper editing pass and some QCing could fix 90% of the issues in this translation. We should all, (in a calm manner, of course,) ask Mikandi to do something about this. Whether they will actually listen to us or not is hard to say, but I'd like to think they will. Their PR has been on point through the entire campaign, (they were logged into this forum just last night, showing that they are checking the threads about their game frequently) and if enough people voice their complaints about the translation, I hope they will look into doing something about it.
    Tweet them, comment on their kickstarter page if you are a backer or post on their website. Make your stance on the TL known. If one person complains, nothing will happen, but if everyone does, it's going to be hard for Mikandi to ignore us. With their prevoiusly open attitude towards the community, I'd like to think they will listen.
    So, for the moment, my recommendation is that you do not buy this game. Wait and see if they will do something about our concerns first. Hopefully they will listen and do something about the TL. If you buy the game now in its current state, just be warned: it's not very good, and you might come to regret your decision.

    The Holy Grail War. That hellish, great ritual that offers the ultimate prize for the one who claims it: a wish. There are two conditions to participate: one must be a magus (magic user), and one must be chosen by the Holy Grail to participate.
    There are seven chosen Masters, and seven classes of Servants. Only one master may seize the grail.
    This is the story of a boy who wanted to be a superhero. It's the story of three warring families. It's the story of an ultimate prize and ultimate sacrifice.

    I'm not really sure what Astro was smoking when he posted on the wordpress site that Anzu's route was 50% complete. When I picked it up I found it to be about 15% complete, so I've come to give an update only to find that it looks like bad news when it's actually good news. But then it really doesn't matter, a project making forward progress is better at any percentage than one stalled.
    Progress update: Anzu's route is now 1/3 complete.

    The project is going well. Still alive. The team has changed a bit, (I'm no longer a translator on the project,) and the people involved are quite busy IRL. But things are still progressing, though the actual progress on this thread is quite outdated now. Maybe a new update will come sometime in the future. As I'm not really involved with the translation anymore, it's not my place to make actual progress updates so I'll leave it there.
