Hi. I'm Jeff. I read the the description and I had to share this nugget of history. Back in the ancient times of the BBS, we had an AMA with Ted Woolsey regarding localizations via forum format. He was pleasant enough and answered everyone's questions, until I stepped in crap. I asked him, to paraphrase, "how much is accurately translated and how much is just made up or substituted?" I was talking with him about Final Fantasy III (before it became FF6).

His response was to blow up at me about how much work was involved in the translation process, and how stupid/ignorant I was (at age 17, btw). So yeah. That was Ted Woolsey. The man. The myth. I'm sure he was a chain smoker.
