Is this a machine tl? If so, I'd suggest you reconsider. Don't waste your time on something that will get bashed and that almost no one will play.

I have a close friend who speaks Japanese. I am doing the machine translation as a basis for him, and i'm paying him to look through it and translate it properly.

I don't follow. 

He speaks Japanese, but you are sending him a poorly translated MT, which he then edits? In other words, he isn't translating the actual RAW line himself? This makes very little sense.

Well no, because the Japanese text is next to the English.

But if he is translating it, why are giving him a machine translation as well? I don't see what purpose that serves. 97% of it will have to be scrapped and re-written completely, probably taking up more time than simply TLing each line from scratch, like normal.

What i'm saying is, he's only replacing certain words or things that dont make sense in context. Also, before you say so, this will be a shitty translation and im not denying that. Im simpky doing this for fun.

I'm completely against that, and you made it seem he ~knows~ japanese, but is not japanese. This and the fact it is a machine translation is a very obvious recipe for disaster.

You can do whatever you want, really, but I don't think you should advertise it as a translation project.

Why not? At least he honestly tells about quality and trying to make it good. It is not a Kickstarter(Kyuuketsuki no Libra and Chrono Clock) nor paid translation.

Personally, I believe it will be better(or at least on same level) than original Moenovel release, or Kyuuketsuki no Libra, that we paid money for called "translation"...

I worked with machine translation in the past, and I can confirm that it takes the same amount of time, if not more time, to edit properly compare with translating from scratch.

This is why if a translation team take over a poorly translated project, we'd rather do it again than editing old translation. Pabloc may feel the same way while editing Kono Oozora.

Even though it's only the fandisc, good luck to you there even though most people might find your method was questionable. Oh, and if possible could you show us the translation there? Because I'm sure that many people would be like to knew how good your translation was.

It would be possible to upload a sort of "preview" patch once the intro is finished.

As long as sentences makes sense and doesnt convey the wrong message then i honestly dont care how the sentences are structured. 

Hopefully the full game is out soon and ill happily play this after. Good luck with the project!
