Masato, your pathetic excuse for a translation project was fun for a while, but please don't let it get in the way of a serious potential translation project.

I think Nagato has tools for Baldr Sky. You can probably find him on #tlwiki or #ammy at He can extract the text from the game so you can translate it, and then his tools can re-insert the text into the game.

Scripts are generally put somewhere on the internet where all staff members can edit at the same time, such as a SVN or a wiki. The translator can translate scripts there and save them to the SVN/wiki, and then the editor(s) can clean it up a bit, and then the scripts can be inserted into the game and QCers will play the game and check if everything works fine.

Depending on the game, you might also need image editors, who edit images with Japanese text into images with English text, which can then be re-inserted into the game using the insertion tools.

If you decide to do it, good luck. There are many people waiting for a Baldr Sky translation project.
