Since ROM Hacking became accessible and practical, many fans of the game around the world have started translation projects to port Chrono Trigger to their language. Some were more successful than others, but the most notable translator is bisqwit, whose utilities called Chronotools allow translation into any language by budding ROM hackers. Just make sure you're damn, damn good in C.
Now, enjoy the international efforts of fans, and check out the translations below. All translations are complete unless otherwise noted.
Chrono Trigger SNES Arabic Translation, Fully translated by ExtraOrdinary. Proudly the first complete JRPG translated to contain Arabic script complexity with full consideration of dialogue and menu messages.
The translation is based on the US version, but several text improvements have been introduced from the Japanese retranslation, including the uncensoring of alcohol and religious elements.
KWhazit and the Chrono Compendium undertook an English retranslation to clear up questions regarding the original plot of the game. In order to obtain the highest accuracy possible for plot points, the retranslation leaned on the literal side.
Doctor L attempted to clean up the Chrono Compendium Retranslation and make it a little less literal.
LethargicOwl then provided an addendum: "This is an updated version of Doctor L’s released translation that fixes many issues and further localizes the text, with the final product hopefully being something closer in quality to an official translation."
Chrono Trigger Bugfix and Uncensoring
This patch by Chronosplit fixes several bugs and also restores censored dialogue from the Japanese original, as well as restoring things referenced by Chrono Cross that were not originally localized for the American release.
Chrono Trigger Complete
This project by Kakera Sorcerer seeks to make a complete experience by adding in Chrono Trigger DS lines where appropriate, clarifying any mistranslated or vague lines, and adding original lines (such as those referencing the Frozen Flame in Zeal), all while striving to keep the original wonderful Ted Woolsey spirit from the 1995 translation.
This was undertaken by Bisqwit, who has some translation tools at his website.
