Sorry if it's not the right place to post this topic.
I'm doing Star Cruiser translation. In fact, I'm pretty much already done it: only about 1-2% of text left untranslated because I didn't encounter it during my playthrough. I'm currently replaying it to find this untranslated bits.
Important thing is that I have almost no Japanese knowledge. And also not that great English knowledge (not good enough to write without numerous mistakes) as it's not my native language.
So, as you may already guessed, translation from Japanese was done using Google Translate, Excite and online dictionaries. So it's probably not fully accurate. But it's not just machine translation, I made sure I got meaning from each line (which was pretty tough at times) and story plays out properly. No meaningless bullshit anywhere.
Right now game is fully playable, with a few drops of Japanese from some obscure places that I'll fix when I find them. But before release I'd like some native English speaker to play it and help me to fix my terrible English. I can send translated game and script. Is there any volunteers?
- Determine correct English transcription of some names (Tomovsky, Gervin, etc.) - Done, need checking
- Translate people ranks and titles properly - Done, need checking
- Fix mistakes, typos and untranslated parts - Done, need checking
- Cleanup and replace some dirty hacks with "proper" ones - In progress
- Retranslate Japanese text if someone with a good knowledge of it can help me with that - Anyone?
- Beacons list is messed up. Will be fixed soon.

everything looks much nicer now. Numerous typos and mistakes was cleaned out, missed text was mostly translated, translation was successfuly playtested.
Now it resembling something that at very least can be called "beta". Which I'm planning to release in September to hopefully receive feedback about any other remaining problems.
Stay tuned. UPDATE (09/01/2016)
As I promissed, I'm ready for the public beta release.
