Atlas isn't too hard to use. After obtaining a version of Atlas (I use v11, even though it's a bit outdated) and installing it (which in itself should be an easy process), you'll want to run Quick Atlas. This should bring up the Quick Atlas icon in your toolbar. Right click the icon and activate the "Automatic Clipboard Translation." Using this and AGTH's "automatically copy to clipboard after ____ ms" will automatically translate the text for you. However, using this option can make it a bit hard for Atlas to translate the sentence, especially if the sentence is in an un-formal accent (Kansai-ben is probably going to be a nightmare if you ever run across it XD). With that said, Atlas works best if you understand at least a little bit of Japanese sentence structure and use Atlas only for kanji/certain phrases you don't understand. If you were to translate the text with this method, you'll probably want to turn off the "automatically copy to clipboard after ____ ms" option in AGTH, and simply highlight the text you want Quick Atlas to translate.

Also, sometimes Quick Atlas has trouble properly displaying what the kanji is, or doesn't display the kanji as you'd like it to (Such as wanting 空 to come up as "Sora" instead of "sky" in the translation box). To fix this, open up the translation editor in the menu list for either the Atlas toolbar or Quick Atlas. There, you'll want to go to Dictionary, and then Add Word. Type the word or copy and paste it in Japanese for the Japanese section, and then write the word or meaning you want it to be associated with in the English section. Select the categories appropriately for the word you want translated (noun, verb, etc.) and select the choices that go with the word (person, place, organization, etc. For a name though, you'd obviously want to select "person"). After doing that and clicking either "Add EJ" or "Add for Both" (I choose the latter, even though I don't think I'll be translating English into Japanese), your word should be added to Atlas's dictionary. From there on, whenever you select the word to be translated, it should come up as the new translation you've added into the dictionary.

Sorry for the long explanation. >.< I hope this helps anyone who needs help with this. Also, I have not tried the other versions of Atlas, so I can't guarantee this will work with any other version. Good luck, and welcome to the visual novel scene! =P

A quick search on www.hongfire.com should do the trick.

If you still can't find it, I'll go look for it later.
