Shining Force Feather Translation Project needs translators!

Those of you who have played Shining Force Feather will know that it is the closest we've had to a 'proper' Shining Force game in long time. Unfortunately many of you will not have played it because it was only released in Japan.
Never fear, help is at hand!
SFCer & GBAtemp member StorMyu has been working on the ROM in order to be able to extract and insert text and has been making excellent progress. The Japanese script has been extracted and is ready for translation. Omega Entity from SFC has kindly offered to help with the translation, but there's a lot of work to do and it would be fantastic to have more translators on board.
So, if your Japanese skills are up to it and you have a bit of free time, why not lend a hand to the project? Or maybe you know someone that would be able and willing to help? Let us know!
You can find out more from StorMyu's post at GBATemp or post in his topic here at SFC in the SF: Feather forum. If we get a team of translators together, I will of course set up a dedicated forum for the project to aid with communication and organisation between the translators.
I for one can't wait to replay Shining Force Feather - in English!

That would be very great! Unfortunately I am not able to understand Japanese so I can't help you with the translation. I have been a big Shining Force fan since playing it on Genesis. I refused to play the non-strategy titles except STHA, SITD and SW though and after I read about Shining Force Feather I always wanted to play it but not in Japanese...

I'm actually more of a lurker but I just had to register and say thank you! I can't believe that there's an actual translation project for this game now! Amazing!

I very much doubt the team will be finished in a matter of weeks, we're looking at months or maybe years. Hopefully not years!

I'm slow, this is the first I've heard of this.

Sorry I can't be of any help, just wanted to drop in and say thanks to the translation team - this is great news.

I tried to play Feather but was a bit put off by not knowing what was going on and what I was meant to be doing - and just never got round to having a good go at the game. Looking forward to a translation :thumbsup:

No, he is an idiot who just wants to be congratulated for their work or gets to mourn

You should shoot StorMyu a PM. He's the project coordinator.

It's frozen. Here's the thread at GBAtemp. Basically, my understanding is that Stor has everything set up to enter the translation but that it's a complicated process and that there currently isn't a translator. I'm not sure that he's monitoring that thread anymore, he has moved on to other projects, so I'd recommend PMing him on GBAtemp if you happen to be looking to help.

I just recently posted in this project's subforum but I'll post here too, since it seems to be the most active thread of this project.

I have a translation. It's a long story so I don't really want to write it out here again, but you should check out the Translations in progress thread of the subforum. You'll find my explanation there ;)
