Hi, I'm new here and wanted to ask how hard is it to translate "Conker's Bad Fur Day" and what all do I need? I like the game and would love to have it in my language, but unfortunately I don't know anything about it at all :( Hope there is someone who can give me some tips.

Thanks!

Since there seem to be no pre-existing ROM hacks or translations for this game, you would be starting from scratch and it will probably be VERY difficult, especially if you've never done something like this before and particularly considering that N64 games are not generally known for being easy to hack.

Are you aware that Retroarch has auto-translation capabilities now? It is far from perfect, but may meet your needs.

But there is already a Spanish translation for 2018 and a French one for 2019

and a Portuguese translation in 2022 is still in progress

Never heard of "Retroarch" :( Is that an emulator?

Oh, whoops. I forgot the Search form defaults to English translations, so I didn't see those.

Anyway, have you tried contacting the authors of those translations? Perhaps they will provide you with their tools if you ask nicely.

Did you try Googling to find out..?

Yes, I already tried to contact the translators, but unfortunately they were not online for a long time. Too bad, but thank you for taking the time to answer me.

Well, you can look at the documentation they left behind, for starters.  The English translation of https://www.romhacking.net/translations/n64/patches/2940readme.txt suggests they used "Universal N64 Compressor (subdrag)" and Translhextion.

(I should add that if you are not in the mood to at least Google about things you don't recognize, then you have a very long road ahead of you.)

Yes, I have already found that, only I did not understand how to do it, there is always an error message :/ I also do not think that I can do it alone, with the translation I have no problems only with the technology I do not know :(

The Portuguese translation was actually finished and released, it was released on this Portuguese-language forum. Seems like they never updated the RHDN thread after that translation was released, and it was never submitted here.
My latest Portuguese translation: Popeye (NES)
New English translation! Gardman (NES)

I don't understand. Did you Google the error message? Would you like some help resolving the error message? Don't you think it would be useful to post what the error message said?

Your first post said you were looking for "someone who can give me some tips"; I hope you're not looking for someone who is going to do all the work for you.

Thanks for the information! :)

Yes, I have now solved the problem by converting the game again, now it worked, apparently something went wrong the first time, but it works now, however everything is in hexadecimal and I do not understand anything about it at all. I thought at the beginning there is a tool to open the game and then the texts are displayed and so I thought a few tips would be enough, but apparently you also need expertise to do it. I really appreciate you trying to help me. :)
