    I spent some time translating and localizing the track lists for the three Kiseki games that have been brought over. My goal was to: 1., get everything translated into English; 2., give each track a coherent title; and 3., make the vocabulary and terminology match-up with XSEED's localizations.

    And I thought I'd share.

    I can't remember what terms XSEED used exactly for some areas, so please feel free to make corrections. (IE cities have titles, like "Verdant City Bareahard," which I don't always remember, since they're only on-screen very briefly).

    __________


    I've also included two links for each of the relevant soundtracks: one for the page on Amazon.com so that you can buy the music if you so wish; the other for the page on Amazon.co.jp so you can see the Japanese track list, should you so wish.

    Anyway, here it is. I don't like my digital music segregated into "discs," so I don't reset the track numbers (ever), but I did go ahead and mark which tracks are on which disc for those that care.

    Honestly, I would love to see a translated tracklist by someone at XSEED

    Well, your wish is at least PARTIALLY our command, as our original Trails in the Sky PSP LE did come with a partial soundtrack CD with localized track names:

    http://vgmdb.net/album/25202

    The rest look pretty good, though, SlyLupin. There are some I'd translate differently, to be sure, but nothing looks wrong or sounds particularly odd, at a glance. Nice job!

    Thanks.
    One of the fun (also infuriating) things about translation is that you can get 100 people translating a single sentence 100 different ways. One of my first big translation projects was a German poem that had been translated maybe a dozen different times over the past century. I found a first printing (from 1911, IIRC) and spent months making the most accurate, faithful translation I could. Pondering each line, consulting my professor on every other word.

    And when I was done, I found copies of four different translations to compare it to... and they were all *wildly* different. (Both from my translation, *and* each other).

    Anyway, I've made a couple of corrections to some dumb mistakes in the FC and SC lists. Basically, I forgot the term "Tetracyclic" for the towers (FC track 8); and the name of the play for the "Magrigal of the White Magnolia" (FC tracks 24-31); you may (or may not) notice that I changed several of the "engrish" titles for things that flowed better... IE "I Swear..." (SC track 42) got changed to "This I Vow..." because of the connotations of that verb in English... despite "I swear" being the first two words of the song.

    Oops.

    I wonder why Falcom decided to leave Sen no Kiseki's soundtrack untranslated on iTunes. Almost every other one (besides Sen II and the SAV) they at least tried to translate the tracks to some degree.
