Chrono Trigger Translation Question
« on: January 14, 2004, 07:12:20 pm »
Being new to the forums, I am not sure if this topic has been covered.  However, I am curious as to whether or not someone has re-translated Chrono Trigger through an IPS patch or some other method.

Unfortunately, not at this time. I'm not sure if one is being undertaken, either. A small translations FAQ exists at Gamefaqs Chrono Trigger site, but I'm sure you've seen it.

I'd be wary of any attempts at a translation for a game as popular as Chrono Trigger. A lot of the people going into such an endeavor might let their personal interpretation of the game bias their efforts. What I'd really like to see is a completely literal translation (with phrasal annotation) that would then be scrutable by anyone who speaks English.
