I have never been satisfied with the English "localization" (as opposed to translation) of FF8, and know I can do be better. I already have a second set of eyes willing to help on the translation side, but neither of us have the more technical hacking skills for the project. Help is needed with:

-Dumping the Japanese script.
-Making a patch to put the new script into the Steam version of the game at a minimum, PSX and other PC versions would be nice options as well.
-Extra sets of eyes to look four stupid and easily correctable mistakes like that one that can be missed when you stare at the screen too long.

A similar post will go up for the FFX trilogy. While not promising to do all four games, we'll start on whichever one gets the technical help first.

Is Deling insufficient for you? It has all the needed translation features including Japanese fonts.
