After a bit of a slow start work is starting to move pretty fast on the translations. The entirety of Rance 1 has been through rough translation and is in the editing process as I type this. There will still be several rounds of proofing, editing, reediting and beta testing before anything is released, but a lot of truly significant work has already been done.
More than that, work has already begun on translating Rance 2. It seems there was quite a bit of difficulty hacking some of the proprietary file types to get at the files proper, but we've finally made some headway due to some very helpful folks over on Hongfire (Thanatos in particular) and it looks like as soon as we've finished up with Rance 1, we'll be in a good position to start work on the second game.
I'm afraid I don't have any apropos Rance picture that somehow sums up my post... Zweiter's got me beat in that department. With that, I'm off to do some more editing, because the faster I finish my part, the sooner Zweiter can put the edited text into the game, which means we get to beta testing faster, which means there will sooner be a finished translation for all of you.
