I can't really say much not having seen neither the Wind or ef translations, but yes, translating from Japanese and writing in it are largely different beasts; for the former, you don't actually need that much fluency so long as you have enough literary ability to accurately convey the meaning and emotion. On the other hand, while writing, one needs to know enough expression and grammar patterns to construct phrases that will not sound unnatural. That is not to say translation is easier; both actions just require different subsets of skills.

The games were all translated by different people at different points in time. Wind and the Haru no Ashioto demo were done by insani's gp32. ef went through several external translators before they finalized a team.

While I can't speak for the quality, it's unlikely that the game translators wrote that message on NNL's site. That was likely handled by the publicity/producing side that's the face and core leadership of NNL.

But Key site still works.

what do you mean by 'now', hasn't the main product.co.jp site been blocking foreign IPs for a while now?

and visualart's games have had anti-gaijin protection since natsuyume nagisa (or even sometime before that), kud wafter has it, rewrite will have it too

Thanks Asceai.

Still hoping they would change the text system to horizontal for Albatross.

Yeah, I mean horizontal with text box... but somehow the art and the setting really fit the system so never mind then.
