Alright...Here goes. Hope this is in the right place. Considering this is handhelds and all.

Everyone remember the hype going on when Chunsoft was considering localizing "Conception: Please Give Birth to My Child!"?

Now everyone remember how quickly that hype went away when they never did? Well, with the announcement of a sequel, I was looking at working on a fan translation for those who never got to play it. I was looking for some help.

If anyone can explain what goes into a fan translation, that would be nice, Hell if I could meet a few helpers here, that'd be even nicer.

There have already been a few PSP games which have been fan-translated. I was looking to add Conception to the list of those games.

I already downloaded a few tools for this project, but I have absolutely no freaking idea what I'm doing. If someone could explain, maybe help, I'd have no problem putting my all in to this. With the sequel coming out soon, and it's no guarantee whether Chunsoft will localize this one or not, I'd like to do the world a favor and translate it.

If anyone can answer, that'd be really nice.

First off I admire your passion for wanting to get a game you are interested in translated into another language, ostensibly your native tongue.... However....

At CR we have to take a hard line on copyright and fair use laws for obvious reasons. While we are not a video game website what you are proposing is still technically against the law and could be taken poorly by the games creators. In the interest of fairness and across the board consistent modding I am going to have to close this topic just like I would if it were about fan subbing an anime.

Thanks for using CR and best of luck with your project, I hope you can understand where we are coming from on this one.
