I know it's a long stretch, but I know a few people who may be able to help, whether it's as a friendly favor, I pay them, whatever, who speak and I believe read Japanese as well. And if they don't I'm positive they know some people. No guarentees, no hope risings but it's still worth a shot.

My universities Japanese club could do some of this perhaps...

EDIT: They want pay(which is fine), about 75 just for the Ultimania. Little out of my spare cash at the moment.

I've started working on the liner notes - at a snail's pace. It may be too difficult for me, but somehow, I'm getting enjoyment from it because I get to learn more about Yasunori Mitsuda. I still can't believe that he was only 20 when he started working on CT's soundtrack. That's unbelievable. I remember reading something somewhere that he stressed himself out too much and Uematsu had to do some final tracks.

I think that I will try my best to finish this short essay by Mitsuda regardless of whether it's going up on the site or not. It's just hard not to ask Japanese people I know to help me because I like games and puzzles, and translation is just like a massive logic puzzle to me. Too bad I suck at logic puzzles... what a way to get better XD.



What exactly do bounty points go towards (in terms of the member doing translation material)?

I know a couple of Japanophiles who'd probably like to translate this material.
