[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: Is anyone still here?
Don't worry. We're still here! Sorry it's taking so long. The project is largely just us two, and I'm only a beta-tester/editor.

Re: Is anyone still here?
Thank goodness the project is still alive and well! That makes me happy!

Since I've got your attention, could you please update me on how far along you are with the project?

Is Watangashi-Hen finished? Have you moved on to the next arc? Or are you still working on it?

I don't expect a release date or an in-depth answer, I would just really like to know how far along you are.

We're still in Watanagashi-hen. I don't know exactly how far we are overall, but I CAN tell you we've cleared the festival.
