Japanese Localization

Just wanted to let you know I would be interested in the Japanese translation / localization.

I am a native Japanese, full time IT worker, and do J2E/E2J translation for a hobby.
(I submitted the website translation if you remember...)

Haven't gone through all the game, but seeing all other translation offers, I didn't want to be too late.
I understand that the complete size of the text will be quite large. Considering all the proofreading / harmonization / eroge-oriented retouch required, I don't think I would be able to handle this all by myself in a realistic time.

It may be possible to team up with other parties who are interested in the same.
I do would like to know if there are any, or if anyone came up to you already.
(Plz post if anyone is out there)

Thoughts pleaze.

Sorry I forgot to login for the post above.

I don't have any knowledge on hacking binaries or Ren'py itself.
My contribution will be basically limited to translation related efforts.

We're interested in general. However, I recommend you play the whole thing first, to see what you're getting yourself into. Also, you should maybe visit the IRC channel. But we're having a bit of discussion about a general translation policy at the moment anyway, and will probably provide a framework in the near future.

Hi hir,I 'd like to help you with the translation, if you let me.
I'm a native speaker of Japanese who speaks english as the second language, not quite well yet though.
unfortunately I haven't got much experience in X translation, but I think I got a kind of knack for it.
I don't have any degree in english, so to prove myself I translated some text in KS Act1(the first scene and the second). Here.

I'm looking forward to your reply. thanks.
