Are We Having Fun Yet?
Topic: Watercrown News

Five months. Five months and my patch is still not yet quite complete. That's just how things are in the world of romhacking.

The plus side: I do everything myself. So I have absolute control over every single aspect of my project. I don't have to worry that my translator is doing their job, because I am the translator; I don't have to wait for my programmer to finish hacking code, because I am the programmer.

The minus side: I do everything myself. So if I take a break for any reason, nothing gets done.

Not that I haven't done anything in the past three weeks...oh, no. Quite the opposite. Since no one has volunteered a full English equivalent to the series' "Midori no yama wo ikutsu mo koete" line (although I have gotten some handy snippets; thank you all), I've decided to do the unthinkable: pen one myself. And not just any straight translation. No, the version that will appear in all of my Sylvanian Families translations...will be a poem.

Of course, I'm not exactly a master poet...I've gotten some stuff down, but I'm getting help for the rest. The wait will be worth it...this quote is a vital piece of my translation, and I want to get it perfect.

See you in another week. Or two. Or three.

Thank you so much for all the work you do! I was looking for GBA Syllvanian Families for ages and couldn't find anything. Couple days ago I found your posts at the Sylvanian Families forum and I was able to download and actually play the games. Thank you ! Unfortunatelly I don't know Japanese, but it still fun to play. I hope you will be able to finish the translation and really appreciate your work. Good luck and thank you again. Natasha
