[sticky post] Welcome to Hinamizawa-When They Translate  
Greetings!  This is the official community for the When They Translate, a group currently working on translating the Higurashi visual novels into English, starting with Watanagashi-hen and picking up where the previous group left off.  I help maintain this community and work as a beta-tester/editor for the group.  The patches provided here will be for the Japanese versions of the games, so you will need to have imported at least Himatsubushi-hen and Matsuriyabashi-hen in order to apply them.  A lot of us had already purchased the games before MangaGamer's releases, only for the original translation project to grind to a halt.  The "official" translation provided by MangaGamer had many problems, including switched sprites and music, poor translation, and the removal of all extras.  Rest assured these patches will not have these same issues and will be more accurate to the original works.  Also, please be aware that this is a small group, so the patches may take some time.  We will do our best to keep you updated.

NOTE:  I came up with the "When They Translate" name.: P

Re: Recruitment
unfortunately, I have only worked on Onscript and Bgi and have zero knowledge on IOS games. Is that your main priority at the moment? I was in a guise that you were only working on Higurashi.

From what I have read from your Tumblr page, I can understand why you're hesitant to work with anyone. With that said, are you or your partner still in contact with the French patcher from a while back? Maybe he'll need help on anything. I really want to see this project's completion since Umineko is getting a full port by Honyaku and UmiTweak, why not Higurashi too, right? ^^

Re: Recruitment
You'd be better off asking Maya about the French patcher.

We're working on both games, but Higurashi is farther along. It's been our main focus longer, and we're currently searching for someone to help with the other one.

Re: Recruitment
How can I contact her then?

Re: Recruitment
Same way you contacted me or by PMing her.

Re: Recruitment
It's ok. I went ahead and contacted him directly. Awaiting a reply at the moment.

Thanks for your replies and good luck on your projects! ^^
