Maybe you should look at some of the Japanese to English translations on the site and contact the authors if they'd be interested in you translating their work into another language. Not everyone who has translated something in the past is still active, so I'd recommend looking for someone who has been active in the last five years or so. As for myself, I had someone translate a game into Spanish in the past, so I'd be willing to accommodate you if NES and GB games are your thing.
In fact, I have no experience as a games translator, but I have studied a bit of localization at the University and also literature translation, which I consider interesting for games translation. Anyway, I am very interested in translating NES and GB games because I will acquire some experience and I will learn how games translating is. And I will enjoy a lot of course!

How about Ys Seven for PSP? I'll see if I can dump the first script for you to translate, then I'll work on a proof of concept.
Ys Seven has an English version available, even though it's originally a Japanese game.
I would also be interested in translating Ys Seven for PSP! I have never played Ys saga before, but I have read that it is an amazing game, so I am really exciting! Nevertheless, even though I have studied some localization at the university, I have no real experience as a game translator. Anyway, I would like to be a professional translator and it would be great to gain some experience as well as I enjoy doing what I like!
