The majority of the items, menus, mission titles, spells, spell descriptions, and shopkeeper dialog are translated. I say majority as there's always a possibility I missed some as I haven't played through the entire game yet. As far as character dialog is concerned, only a small percentage has been translated and mostly for the Knight class. The dialog for the first (four?) missions is done. I also translated the first mission dialog for the Mage class as well.
One thing to note is that I reverted the ranks or "A.K.A.'s" as the game calls them back to Japanese. Translating them just wasn't feasible as in English, they're way too long to fit in the small box the game has them in. Four Japanese characters would end up translating to entire sentences in English. lol Even just Japanese words in English text were way too long. In addition, the rank isn't just based on your character's class and level. It takes into account your actions in the game and your equipment to determine the rank, which means there are hundreds and hundreds of possible ranks across all the classes. One could possibly make up new, shorter ranks but that would be a huge undertaking on its own.
This is a far more ambitious project than I initially expected. There are 120 missions in the game and each new mission means new dialog for everyone in the town. In addition, each of the four classes has their own unique dialog so times that by 4. So yeah, I won't be doing that. As I said before, this was really just a fun project for me, just to learn and see if I could do it. I'm happy with what I accomplished here even though it's not a 100% complete translation. As is though, it's infinitely more playable now than it was before. The untranslated dialog is easy to get past. Basically just talk to all four people in the town and then go to the reception desk to start the mission. Rinse and repeat 120 times.
So yeah, I'm basically finished with it but I'll try and fix any issues that anyone might encounter. You're definitely going to still see some Japanese sprinkled around here and there but nothing really that important. Anyway, download link is below. Enjoy!

Note: The translation is currently only available as a GDI as I have no idea how to make CDI. If anyone wants to volunteer to make a CDI, feel free.
