Mission accomplished. Tales of Destiny DC’s main story is now translated up to the end of Act 1.
It’s hard to find time to translate. It’s even harder to make time to translate. After talking with Kingcom, I set a goal a few months back of at least finishing translating the main story of Act 1 of Stahn’s Side in ToDR before the end of the year. For a while I didn’t think I was going to make it, but Kingcom offered some much needed motivation near the end that helped me to cruise over the finish line a bit ahead of schedule. At this point it’s now possible to complete the first act of the game without encountering any Japanese (as long as you don’t talk to non-essential NPCs and assuming I didn’t overlook something). It probably doesn’t sound like much and certainly it’s long overdue, but it’s real, meaningful progress. I plan on continuing with translating the story as I go, so next up – Act 2!
