VN Translation Status (24/11/2014)

Depending on your time zone I’m either late or on time. I blame Sekai Project’s new forum for being terrifyingly well optimized for drawing you in. Also my headache, but that’s secondary.

This is more or less a copy of a post the user VNTS does on 4chan’s /jp/ board weekly, with some edits, potential additional entries and such. Entries in green have progressed since last week; this week, we saw progress on 18 projects and 3 releases. The three releases are: a Fate/Hollow Ataraxia patch, a Cannonball patch, and a demo for Nekopara.

Alright, I admit it. F/HA has been available in various levels of translation (and, later, QC) for a while. I figured I’d wait the 1.0 release out.. and here it is. I was going to write a post on it on friday. Then on saturday. And today it’s VNTS day. Cannonball was more of a surprise. Turns out the reason for the long QC phase was that the QCs weren’t QCing. I guess people don’t say it’s hard to get good QC for no reason.

As for Nekopara… the demo is (reportedly) fraught with translation errors and (certainly) has its share of both clunky and plain weird English. And some really cute catgirls, which might render that moot. More about that in this thread – interestingly, Sekai Project’s CEO recently said “I can’t really get into details as I have the scenario sitting in front of me, but it’s not a much of a nukige as people suspect it is.”


Writer of irreverent VNTS commentaries, shadowy Fuwanovel string puller, Swedish, ambivalent toward meatballs. Brave Fuwanovel Skype Group memeber (rip), technically a reviewer, chronic everything staller. I am all these things and more, but mostly I'm really lazy. Loves yuri, reading, chocolate, and quality sugar-free colas. Hates VNs with too many choices and long walks on the beach.

Great news about Fate/Hollow Ataraxia however I’ll be waiting in hopes that a voice patch will be made. It was just released in Japan today.

hmm well.

I did various portions of Fate/hollow ataraxia but got fed up at the fragmentary wiki nature of the project. Much of the English script it is not that great or accurate of a translation. Even the “QC” was frequently wrong, but I suppose a flawed translation is better than no translation, when it comes to free fan translations.

Point being, don’t open/crowdsource localization work. It’s a terrible idea.
