Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Extend is a rhythm game for the Sony Playstation Portable. The game was released in Japan only.
A Wololo moderator named Codestation has started translating extend. The patch is actually a plugin instead of a regular ISO patch, which means it is easier to update and also makes it possible to play from the UMD without any ISO. It still does require a CFW to load the plugin.
As of the 0.5 beta releases, the game is nearly 100% translated!

There is also another way to play this game, at least, partially in English in the form of ‘patching’ the ISO rather than running the plugin concurrently by the game’s data folders. Check here: http://forums.ppsspp.org/showthread.php?tid=268&pid=91336#pid91336.
The archive download there has a couple tools that can be used to extract two files from within the ISO, patch them with the ppf files (Check readme or an user post before the one linked above for steps) and then import them inside the ISO. Note that the boot.bin file may have to be picked over the eboot.bin file (in contrast to the recommended steps as boot.bin may have the same size noted in the readme doc).
But this ‘partial English’ patch’s translation level is pretty dismal. Hardly any menu text is translated but you can see the English text at the top bar and control hints at the bottom bar in the menu. Also the titles of most song lyrics in the selection menu are still in Japanese only and not much of the in-game lyrics captioning would be translated.
However, all of the lyrics intro splash screens before the song game begins are in full English.
