MGQ2 Translation Status
I start on the translation today, and while I’m not going to update every day, enough people have sent me e-mails asking if I’ve started yet that I figured I should make this initial post. Yes, I started as of today, and no it won’t be done in a week or two (Where are these dates coming from anyway?).
This will be the format I’ll post the translation status updates in:
Line Type: Done / Remaining
Story: 980 / 19600 — 5%
Battles: 2635 / 83,000 — 3.2%
Cities: 660/5229 — 12.6%
Encyclopedia: 0/86 – 0%
Overall: 4275/107829 — 3.9%
Remember, those aren’t “actual” line counts. The battle numbers are about 25~30% of the total for translatable lines, and the story/city scenes are about 75% . So while the actual line counts aren’t accurate, the percentages of completion should be uniform, and are a good indicator of how much has been done.
Also, don’t expect this kind of progress (4% in a day) every day. That’s more than I usually do.
