Japanese translation help...?

Postby YelseyKing » 3 years ago

I feel really awkward asking this, but I... really can't think of anywhere else to turn to. At least that I'm comfortable asking it on... :oops:

So... I collect video game music. Lots of random stuff. Mainstream games, obscure Japanese games, you name it. Every once in a while, though, I come across a soundtrack whose titles are in Japanese. I... can't read Japanese, and would greatly prefer English track titles. Would anyone be interested in/capable of translating a handful of OST tracklists for me? I... can't pay anything, I'm afraid, but it's not like I'm asking for a novel or an entire game translated. Just the odd game soundtrack list.

If you can help, let me know and I'll provide the lists... if you can't/won't, then... uh... disregard this post, I...guess. Like I said, I feel *really* awkward asking for something like this, for what's basically personal gain and little else, but... well. Had to try, at least.

As well as a few random soundtracks I downloaded whose track titles are also completely in Japanese, and which I've been unable to find translations for anywhere:

https://vgmdb.net/album/31670 - Lord of Apocalypse
https://vgmdb.net/album/30078 - Material Brave
https://vgmdb.net/album/42380 - Fairy Fencer F (This one has a "translation", but it's just to romaji, rather than English)
https://vgmdb.net/album/33865 - Project X Zone

You could ask Horikawa if they have time. Also I think Hoeloe knows some Japanese too.

If you have the OST as files on your computer, you can right-click the files, select "properties," copy the information, and paste it in Google Translate to get some idea of what it says (assuming the text didn't turn into something like "ƒXƒe[ƒW‚ðì‚Á‚½í”Æ‚ÌŠF—l‚̃Rƒƒ“ƒg‚́A" which is surprisingly common for me).

Try VGMdb, they usually have English Translations of Japanese OST.

For Example here's the Magical Chase Original Soundtrack with Japanese and English tracklist.

Well... I did try VGMDB. In fact, I use it often for translations... but it's not perfect. For some of the soundtracks I have, the track lists either don't match up with the files I have (for instance, the PSF set for Super Robot Wars Alpha Gaiden has like ~90 tracks, but the track list on VGMDB only has like ~45), or the track lists themselves are only shown in Japanese. And as for Google Translate, unless I want garbled titles, that... isn't a particularly helpful option. Like I said, I collect obscure music, much of which comes from games I haven't played, so I can't go by context alone for the most part.

So... yeah. That I'm posting here asking for help is essentially because I'm pretty much *out* of other viable ideas.

And for the record... I have the Magical Chase OST. Great soundtrack. :D

I'll translate a few. I gotta say, though, a lot of these are names of series; they don't really have translations because they don't mean anything concrete. You could find a lot of these by searching on Wikipedia. jisho.org is also helpful.
1. マジンガーZ - マジンガーZ
That's just the name of a series - "Mazinger Z" - repeated twice.
2. マジンカイザー - マジンカイザー
"Mazinkaiser", again, repeated twice.
3. グレートマジンガー - おれはグレートマジンガー
"Great Mazinger - I Am Great Mazinger".
4. ゲッターロボ - ゲッターロボ!
Getter Robo - Getter Robo!
機動戦士ガンダム
That's Mobile Suit Gundam. All the other variants similar to this (the start of 5-17), also some sort of Gundam series name.
モビルスーツ戦
"Mobile Suits War"
敵機襲来
"Enemy Plane Invasion"

In the Alpha Gaiden section, each song's first part appears to be the name of the source work - since SRW is a crossover series, each song title is preceded either by the name of the work or "Game Original". So, Yelsey, I'm assuming that every song here not preceded by ゲームオリジナル (Game Original) is from an anime soundtrack, so you might want to look at translations of their soundtracks.
Well it is a decent hack but sometime its just too repetitif there no level that actually pop in your face and your like oh yeah that level they all ressemble themselves and just monster along the way.

It's actually the "Game Original" ones I need help with, though. A simple Google Translation is enough to clue me in as to what the anime themes are. :P
