Dear Forum,

my team and i who are currently working on the english fan translation of Growlanser 6 are helping out RaidouJFlo (http://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php?topic=28359.0) on the technical side of the game hacking.
Right now we are able to extract all of the games script files, unpack some of the games .DAT archives and view the font file among other things. A VWF is currently being worked on (since the game only supports full width characters on both PSX and PSP):

We are looking for a translator that can help us translate the script from Japanese to English.
We have an open repository where we document all the information about GL1. In there you can also find extracted script files:

If you would like to help out, please visit us at our Discord (https://discord.gg/59Nw2U2) or write a reply in this thread!

Hi kumonojuza,

thank you very much for your reply!
Would you be so kind to join our Discord? https://discord.gg/59Nw2U2
You don't need to know a lot about Romhacking, since we managed to dump the game script into a normal text file.
For example, like this: https://bitbucket.org/Risae/growlanser-6-english-translation/src/master/GL1/03-SCEN.DAT/0000017c.dat%20(1)

Update: We managed to dump all of the ELF scripts and put them in a place on the ELF that doesn't have size restriction.
For anyone that is interested, here you can find them:

I heard once that this game has like 3mb worth of text in it. I'd recommend crowd sourcing the translation on a public doc and then having a single script editor so it all flows together

Hi Guadozoku,

thank you for your reply. We actually host the script on our public repository:

https://bitbucket.org/Risae/growlanser-6-english-translation/src/master/GL1/

Anybody can contribute, fork and create pull requests!
If you have suggestions how to better make the script accessible i'm all ears though.
We have been using this method for our Growlanser 6 translation so far and its been going great:
