Hi there! Nice to meet ya. My fave game is Persona 3 Portable, but I have a lot of games that are "favorites", so picking one or two besides that is tough lol.

As far as I know, translators aren't well paid. Moreover, they have a short timespan to translate everything, be it a book or something else, and because of this, some of them don't do their work properly. I fully understand that, which is why I think it would be better to hire highly motivated people for this task. Besides, someone who already knows about videogames might know about the game they translate, so it's easier.
Still, some translators really have no clue of the very language they speak.
As a matter of fact, some PSX games translated to Italian are "obscene" Some of them are Final Fantasy, Wild Arms.. oh, right! Magna Carta Tears of Blood was AWFUL! The Italian version had a few parts in English and the ending scene was missing! I kind of never beat that game because of this. I can recall only this game as a total failure, but if we want to name games that have some weird text, I can recall plenty of them. Dino Crisis too had a weird translation in some parts. Now that you mention it, some parts are wrong probably because they hadn't seen the video...
But you see, in "my" case the problem is that Italian translators translate from the English version, a translation from Japanese. That is wrong, because a translation mustn't be retranslated into another language. Besides, I've seen that English translations aren't always faithful, so its mistakes happen in the Italian version as well. The strange thing is that now lots of people study Japanese and know it, but none of them ever try to translate the game from Japanese into Italian.
Oh well, I'm lucky enough to understand English and a little Japanese, so I prefer playing them in another language instead of my own, but considering one pays for that game, I think it should be legit to ask for a good product.

p.s. I read an article about that Van Dyke guy the other day... do you know about it? If yes, what do you think about what Van Dyke said?
