I'm not arguing with you. I was just wondering if anything contradicted the "Skull Kid made the deal with Sharp" theory that you and I share.

Jacensolo, could you please translate a line from Phantom Hourglass, by one of the Cubus sisters in the Ghost Ship?

In English, she says "The abducted have fallen victim to the Reaplings" but MPS says that the abducted have actually become the Reaplings. It would be good to get this sorted out.

I was pretty sure some line of dialog claimed that Reaplings were once people, but...

Here it is:

わーい! ありがとうございマス この船は とても危険なのデス
Yay! Thank you. This ship is very dangerous.

Thank you so much! This ship is so very dangerous!

さらわれてきた大勢の人たちは 地下の 地獄亡者にやられて トンデモナイことに・・・タンテキに言うと
The many abducted people had something unthinkable done to them by the Hell Dead that are below… To say it plainly, they were…

Most of the abducted have fallen victim to the Reaplings in the hold. I must say, they are...

シカバネ! シカバネ! シカバネにぃ~!
Turned to corpses! Corpses! Corpsesss!

Fallen! Fallen! They are the fallen!

あ いえ・・・何でもありません
Ah, no… That was nothing.

Oh, excuse me! Never mind that. I don't know what came over me...

とりあえず 姉さんが心配なんで さっさと 助け出してください ヨロシク お願いします!
Anyways, I’m worried about my older sisters, so please quickly get them out of there. It’s up to you!

I'm so very worried about my sisters. Please hurry and rescue them! I wish you luck!


I was pretty sure some line of dialog claimed that Reaplings were once people, but...

I didn't find anything like that in a quick search through the text dump.

This is a bit unusual of a request but... is that TWW Hylian seen on the side of these blocks in Brawl?
http://www.brawlsnap...6...&tag=Glitch
And if it is, can you translate it Jacen?

Oh btw I have a memory lapse, did we ever find anything of interest in PH's Japanese ending?

That does resemble TWW Hylian, but I don't think it actually is. I could be wrong, though.

As for PH's ending, I don't think Jumbie ever got around to translating it.

I thought he had only done the ghost ship stuff at the beginning and the quick part about Ciela's bunshin. If he's done more, do you know where it is?

Since Jumbie never translated the ending to PH, I did it.

I started after the defeat of Bellum/Linebeck:

アイテテ・・・ いったいどうなってんだ? オレはたしか・・・
Ow-ow-ow… What happened? I was sure I…

Yeesh. Ouch... What's going on here?! I thought...

だいじょうぶ? ラインバック! あなた ベラムーに とりつかれていたのよ!
Are you okay? Linebeck! You were possessed by Bellum!

Are you OK? Linebeck! You were possessed by Bellum!

・・・! ああ・・・ そうだ たしかに・・・ なんとなく覚えてる オレがリンクを・・・
…! Ah… That’s right. It’s true… For some reason I remember attacking Link…

WHAT?! Oh... That's right. I...uh... think... I remember something about Link...

すまねぇ リンク 化けモノに のっとられて いたとはいえ オレはなんてことを・・・
I’m sorry, Link. Even though that monster took me over, for me to do something like that…

Oh, kid, I mean... Link! I'm sorry! I know I was possessed by that monster... But to think that I...

いいえ ラインバック! あのとき あなたがベラムーに 立ち向かってくれなければ 今ごろ どうなっていたか わからないもの
No, Linebeck! If you hadn’t stood up to Bellum then, I don’t know what would’ve happened to us.

Shush, Linebeck! If you hadn't stood up to Bellum when you did... Who knows what might have happened to us!

いや・・・まあ あんときは無我夢中で・・・
No… Well, I’d lost myself in it then…

Well... I guess I got caught up in the moment...

なんだよ おめぇらにそんな風に言われると 調子くるうぜ!
What? It sounds like you’re just saying what you want us to hear!

What?! That's not like you! Are you sure you're Linebeck?

まぁ オレは船のカタキを とっただけなん・・・
Well, I was just taking revenge for my ship…

My ship just took a little... uh...damage...

・・・じいちゃん・・・
…Grandpa…

Grandpa...

リンク ラインバック そして シエラよ おかげで元の姿にもどることが できた・・・ 礼をいうぞ
Link, Linebeck, and Ciela. Thanks to you, I was able to return to my original form… I thank you.

Link... Linebeck... And Ciela... I have returned to my true form... For that, I thank you.

なんだ なんだ おい・・・じいさんなのか?
What, what, hey… Is that you, old man?

WHAT?! WHOA! Old man, is that you?!

あんた ホントはそんな 姿だったのかよ!
So that’s what your true form is!

I never would've guessed you really looked like that!

おぬしらの活躍がなければ ワシはずっと封印され この海は 荒れ果てて しまっていただろう ワシもこの海も救われた
If not for your actions, I would have been forever sealed and this sea would have fallen into ruin. You have saved both me and this sea.

If not for you, I'd have been sealed up forever. This sea would have fallen into desolation and evil. You saved me and the great sea.

ありがとう
Thank you.

Thank you.

ラインバックよ
Linebeck.

Linebeck...

オっ オレか?
M-me?

What? Who? Me?

おぬしとの約束 果たさねばのぅ なんでも 1つ 願いをかなえるぞ
I have yet to fulfill my promise to you. I will grant you a single wish, no matter what it is.

I have to make good on a promise I made to you. I grant you one wish.

なによ! ハッキリしなさいよ 大好きな財宝が欲しいんでしょ! お願いしなさいよ!
What is it?! Say it plainly. You want the treasure that you love so much, right?! Ask for it!

What is it? Come on! Say it! You want a treasure, don't you? Just ask!

バッ バカやろう! オレは もう財宝なんて いらねぇんだよ!
D-dumbass! I have no need for treasure anymore!

No! That's not it at all! I don't need treasures anymore! I think...

まっ まぁ そうだな・・・ どうしてもっていうなら・・・ 沈んじまった オレの船を 元にもどしてくれよ
W-well, yeah… If I have to… Return my ship that sunk to how it was.

Well, I guess, if I have to... If you insist... Can you bring back my ship? The one that sank?

え? そんなことでいいの? あとからやっぱり財宝が 欲しくなっても知らないわよ
Eh? You’re fine with that? If later you decide you actually want treasure, I don’t know what’ll happen.

What? That's it? You know, even if you ask for treasure later, that's it!

うるせぇ このチビ妖精! そんなことって言うんじゃねぇよ! だいたい お前はいちいち 一言多いんだ!
Shut up, you tiny fairy! I’m not gonna do that! You’ve always got a lot to say!

That's enough from you, Sparkles! You've always got to get the last word, don't you?

時の砂も もどり 海は再びおだやかになろう これで おぬしらの世界の海でも 幽霊船さわぎはなくなるじゃろう
The Sand of Time has returned and the sea has once again become calm. Now the Ghost Ship won’t be disturbing even your world’s sea.

The Sand of Hours is returned and peace reigns. The Ghost Ship will no longer haunt your world.

アタシたちの世界? じゃあ 今いる この世界は なんなのさ? ここは いったい・・・
Our world? Then, what is the world we’re in now? Where exactly…

Our world? So what is the world that we are in now? What is this place...

そろそろ もとの世界に帰るときが きたようだ・・・
The time for you to return to your original world is nearing…

The time for you to return to your world is near...



Too many quotes. Splitting the post.

あなた方の世界との扉が 再び開こうとしています
The door to your world will open once again.

The door to your world is about to open.

ボクたちは この世界の住人 海王さまのもとに 帰るよ!
We’re residents of this world. We must return to being under the supervision of the Ocean King!

We are inhabitants of this world. We must return to the world of the Ocean King!

ありがとう リンク そしてラインバック あなた達の勇気は 決して忘れません
Thank you, Link. And, Linebeck. You two’s courage will surely not be forgotten.

Thanks, Link. And you too, Linebeck. Your courage will not be forgotten.

あっ・・・ あーよかった こ・・・これでもう あんたの顔を見なくてすむのね もういいかげん 見あきてたから せいせいするわ!
Ah… Ah, thank goodness. N…Now I won’t have to see your face anymore. I’ve already seen it way too much, so that’ll be a relief!

Oh... Well, thank goodness, Linebeck! Now I don't have to look at you any longer. I was getting tired of seeing you all the time!

ケッ そりゃ こっちのセリフだってんだよ 早く行っちまえってんだ
Keh, that’s my line. Hurry up and go.

Ugh! That's my line! Get out of here, and good riddance!

・・・じゃ 行くね・・・
…Well, I’m going…

Well... I'm leaving now...

・・・ありがとう ラインバック
…Thank you, Linebeck.

...Thanks, Linebeck.

リンク アタシは海王さまに仕える精霊 いつまでも あなたといっしょに いたいけど
Link, I’m a spirit that serves the Ocean King. Even though I’d like to stay with you forever…

I would like to stay with you, Link... But I'm a spirit. I serve the Ocean King.

そろそろお別れ しなきゃいけないわ
We have to part soon.

Now we have to say good-bye...

ありがとう! リンク
Thank you, Link!

いつの間にか ラインバックの ヤツも いなくなってるし 幽霊船は もとにもどってる・・・ いったい なにが どうなってるんだか・・・
When did Linebeck disappear and when did the Ghost Ship come back… What the hell happened…?

Linebeck disappeared... And the Ghost Ship is back... What's going on?

なんともなかったんですか? 悲鳴が聞こえてきたから 心配してたんですけど その様子じゃ 大丈夫そうですね
Nothing happened? We heard a scream so we were worried, but you look fine.

So you were OK all along? I was worried when I heard all that screaming... But you look fine!

で どうでした? 幽霊船! お宝とかありました?
So what happened? The Ghost Ship! Was there treasure or anthing?

What about the Ghost Ship? Was there treasure aboard?

なにのん気なこといってんだ!
What kind of carefree things are you saying!?

What are you talking about?!

幽霊船にさらわれてから アタシは死にそうな目にあうし リンクはアタシを 助けるために 何日もこの辺りの 海や島で 苦労したんだぞ!
We were abducted onto the Ghost Ship and it looked like I was going to die. Link went through all sorts of troubles over many days on the sea and islands in the area in order to save me!

I was almost frozen forever on that thing! Link saved me. You wouldn't believe what he went through!

アタシ達が 大変な目に あってたっていうのに 長いこと探しにもこないで どこほっつき歩いてたんだよ!
Even though we were in trouble for that long, you never came to search for us and were just wanderiong around!

Do you understand what we've been through? Where were you? Did you even look for us?

何をおかしなことを いってるんですかナ? あっちの船に乗り移ってから
What kind of crazy things are you saying? Since you got on that ship…

What are you talking about? You were only on that ship...

まだ 10分くらいしかたって ないじゃありませんか
It’s been no more than 10 minutes.

It's only been about 10 minutes.

10分!? そんなわけないだろ! アタシ達が どんな目にあったと おもってるんだ!!
10 minutes!? That’s not possible! Do you know what happened to us?!

Ten minutes?! You've got to be kidding! Do you know what we have been through?!

どんな目といわれても 知りませんナ 10分で コワイ夢でも みていたんじゃないですかナ?
Even if you say that, I don’t. Weren’t you just having a bad dream during that 10 minutes?

I have no idea what you're talking about. How could I? It was probably a bad dream.

だーかーらーっ! 10分じゃないっていってるだろ!!
Like-I-said! It wasn’t just 10 minutes!!

You're not listening! It was longer than 10 minutes, I'm telling you!

あそこの幽霊船だって すっごくあぶないんだぞ!
That Ghost Ship is really dangerous!

That Ghost Ship is REALLY, REALLY DANGEROUS!

・・・いませんぜ・・・
…It’s gone…

...It's not there anymore...

ふっ 船が消えてる!! うわー! やっぱり呪われた船なんだ! アネキが見た夢もきっと幽霊船の しわざなんだよー! ひー・・・
Th-the ship disappeared!! Uwaah! It really was a cursed ship! That dream Aneki had must’ve been the Ghost Ship’s doing, too! Eee…

The...the ship! It's gone! It really was cursed! The dream you had was the work of that Ghost Ship! Eeek!

コラー! だから夢じゃないって いってるだろ! だいたいお前らときたら・・・
Hey! I told you it wasn’t a dream! Every time I tell you guys something…

Hey! I told you it wasn't a dream! You guys never listen...


Note:
Aneki is a term the members of a gang or something use for their leader if the leader is female. It literally means "older sister".

This are the only changes of interest that I see... and they don't really help us determine whether the adventure was set in the Ocean King's world or that of Link and co.
Darn.

Though I do think that "even your world" is indication that we saw it terrorize both.

Anyway thanks Jacen, it's good not having to wonder whether the official translation had gotten screwed up or not ^_^

"World" can refer to "realm" in the regional sense as well as the dimensional, as we see in TWW.

Pretty sure this hasn't been translated so...
Could you translate Zelda's introduction to Link in the two linked Oracles games? Some friends of mine would like to see what the Japanese wording is in places where the NoA version makes it seem like Zelda hasn't met Link, but still somehow recognizes him.

Hi. I'm from Zelda Universe, a fellow theorist. Really, I would have posted an introduction thread, but it seems that I don't have the ability to make threads.. And to be honest, I pretty much only joined here to hopefully get something translated. I know it's selfish, I'm sorry. But I can try to make up for it.

I was just hoping for someone to translate something from Link's Awakening.

What I am looking for is what Dethl, the last of the Nightmares in the Wind Fish's egg, says. Afterwards Link would climb the stairs where he would meet the Owl and The Wind Fish. Preferably, I'd also like what they say to be translated as well.

Thank you.

Welcome to Legends Alliance ^^

As you can say over Tingle's photo, I am Arturo, one of the mods of Zelda Storyline.

And you couldn't post topics, but now you can, because you need a post to have that ability. It's some sort of basic defense against spambots.

Anyway, welcome to LA, and I hope you stay after you get your translation! ^^

Oh, heh. Didn't notice that, sorry. Thanks.

These translations are really making me reevaluate some of my opinions on the timeline. For one thing, it's nice to see that the connections are actual a lot tighter in Japan. ^_^

Very true. Zelda's quite a unique case, as it is the only series where the translators have effectively tried to rewrite the chronology.

Sorry, I've been busy and haven't been in here for a while.

I'll get to work on those requests.

Edit: I've finished the ending to LA.

I started just before the battle with the Nightmares:

われらは、あくむのなかより うまれ いでしもの. . . .
We were born from within nightmares…

We were born of nightmares...

ユメという とざされた せかいに ちつじょを きずくがため、「かぜのさかな」に、えいえんの ねむりを あたえた. . . .
We gave the Wind Fish eternal sleep in order to build order in this closed off world called a dream.

To take over this world, we made the Wind Fish sleep endlessly!

これで、めざめによって しまが きえてしまうことはない。 われわれこそ、カミなのだ!
That way this island would never disappear due to him waking. We are gods!

If the Wind Fish doesn't wake up, this island will never disappear! We would have been the masters of this place…

. . . だが、おまえは、きた. . . われらの じゃまをしになっ! クックックッ。 おまえには、 われらを たおすことは できぬ! いくぞ!!
…But you came… Don’t get in our way! Heh heh heh. You can not defeat us! Let’s go!!

But you had to come here and disrupt our plans! Heh heh! You can never defeat us!!! Let's rumble!

After the battle:

きえてしまう. . . こわれてしまう われらのしまが われらのせかいが. . わ. れ. ら. の. し. ま. . . . . . . わ. . . れ. . . ら. . .
It’s going to disappear… It’s going to be destroyed. Out island, our world……Our…island……O…u…r…

This island is going to disappear... Our world is going to disappear... Our world... Our... world...

. . . . . . りんく よ よくぞ あくむに うちかった! あがってきなさい。
…Link. Well done. You have overcome the nightmares! Come up.

...Link, you have beaten all the Nightmares! Climb the stairs before you!

ホッホウ! ホッホウ! ぼうや. . . いやりんく どの!よくぞ、あくむにうちかった!
Hoot! Hoot! Boy…no, Link-dono! Well done. You have overcome the nightmares!

Hoot! Young lad, I mean... Link, the hero! You have defeated the Nightmares!

その、ちえ ちから ゆうきは、まこと、ゆうしゃの あかしぢゃ!
That wisdom, power, and courage are actually the signs of a hero!

You have proven your wisdom, courage and power!

わしは「かぜのさかな」の こころの、ひとつなのぢゃ。「かぜのさかな」が、ねむるあいだ ユメのせかいを まもることが わしの やくめぢゃった。
I am a part of the Wind Fish’s spirit. My duty was to protect this dream world while the Wind Fish slept.

As part of the Wind Fish's spirit, I am the guardian of his dream world...

. . . ぢゃが、あるとき ユメのさけめから あくむがめばえ しまを、むしばみだしたのぢゃ。
…But one day, nightmares sprouted from a tear in the dream and corrupted the island.

But one day, the Nightmares entered the dream and began wreaking havoc.

. . . そこへ、めざめのししゃ つまりりんく どのが、こられた わしは、しんじておった。おぬしは あくむに まけることのない つよい、ゆうきのもちぬしぢゃとな
…Then you, the messenger of awakening, came. I believed that you would not lose to the nightmares. You were strong and possessed courage.

Then you, Link, came to rescue the island... I have always trusted in your courage to turn back the Nightmares.

ホッホウ! ホッホウ! ありがとうりんく どの. . . これで、わしのやくめは おわった 「かぜのさかな」にかえるとしよう さらばぢゃ! ホッホウ!
Hoot! Hoot! Thank you, Link-dono… Now my role is over. I shall return to the Wind Fish. Farewell! Hoot!

Thank you, Link ... My work is done... The Wind Fish will wake soon. Good bye...Hoot!

. . わたしは、かぜのさかな. . . . . . ねむりについて、いったい どれくらいときがたったのか. . .
..I am the Wind Fish……How long has it been since I went to sleep…?

I AM THE WIND FISH...LONG HAS BEEN MY SLUMBER...

. . . はじめ、わたしは. . . タマゴのユメを、みていた. . . やがて、タマゴのまわりに しまが でき、ひとや、どうぶつが、うまれ. . . せかいが うまれた. . .
…At first…I dreamt of an egg…Before long, an island was formed around the egg, and people and animals were born…A world was born…

IN MY DREAMS... AN EGG APPEARED AND WAS SURROUNDED BY AN ISLAND, WITH PEOPLE, ANIMALS, AN ENTIRE WORLD!

だが、ユメは さめるもの それが、しぜんのさだめなのだ。わたしが、めざめると、 コホリントじまはきえるだろう
But dreams fade. That is a law of nature. When I wake, Koholint Island will disappear.

BUT, VERILY, IT BE THE NATURE OF DREAMS TO END! WHEN I DOST AWAKEN, KOHOLINT WILL BE GONE...

しかし、このしまの おもいでは げんじつとして、こころにのこる。
But the memories of this island reside as reality in your heart.

ONLY THE MEMORY OF THIS DREAM LAND WILL EXIST IN THE WAKING WORLD...

そして. . . キミはいつか このしまを おもいだすだろう。 この おもいでこそ、ほんとうの ユメのせかいでは、ないだろうか
And…one day you will remember this island. Those memories will be of a real dream world, will they not?

SOMEDAY, THOU MAY RECALL THIS ISLAND... THAT MEMORY MUST BE THE REAL DREAM WORLD...

ありがとう りんく . . . . ときはみちた! ともにめざめよう!!
Thank you, Link… The time has come! Let us wake together!!

COME, Link ... LET US AWAKEN… TOGETHER!!

さあ! かなでるのだ! めざめのうたを!
Now! Play the Song of Awakening!

PLAY THE EIGHT INSTRUMENTS! PLAY THE SONG OF AWAKENING!!


Unfortunately, I don't have screenshots for the OoA Master Sword quote, so I can't translate it.

Thank you ever so much, I appreciate it. :)

Hmm, looks like NoA was pretty reliable with their translations on that one...

Fintin O'Brien requested that I translate what the composer brothers tell you in OoT, so here it is:

私は カカリコ村に すむ 音楽家兄弟のユーレイで ある。この村の民は 全て ハイラル王家に お仕えする定め。
I am the ghost of one of the composer brothers who lived in Kakariko Village. All of the villagers who lived here were required to serve the Hyrule Royal Family.

I am one of the ghostly composer brothers of Kakariko Village. All the people in this village are born to serve the Royal Family of Hyrule.

我ら兄弟も ハイラル王家に 仕え、王家に伝わるフシギな力についての 研究を まかされていたのである。
My brother and I served by researching the mysterious power that was handed down by the Royal Family.

We brothers also served the Royal Family, and were assigned to study the hereditary mystic powers of the family.

トライフォースの力は いまだ 解明できないまま…で あったが オカリナの音を 使って 時をあやつる研究は もう少しで 完成するはずで あった…
We still haven’t… or rather hadn’t, been able to explain the Triforce’s power, but are, or were, nearly finished with research on manipulating time with the sound of an ocarina…

Though we never could figure out the power of the Triforce, we had almost completed our study of controlling time with the tones of ocarinas.

いや! 実は 我らは すでに その研究を 完成していたのである!
No! The truth is, we had already completed that research!

Uh, I mean... Actually, we did complete that study!

あの 憎むべき ガノンドロフめが 研究を横取りしようとしなければ… 名声を 我らの手に できたのだ。
If that detestable Ganondorf hadn’t tried to seize our research… fame would have been in our grasp.

We would have been famous, if that hateful Ganondorf had not tried to steal our results.

だが、その 研究の成果を ヤツに わたすわけには いかん。 それゆえ、我ら兄弟は 命をかけて そのヒミツを 守りぬいたのだ。
But we couldn’t let the fruits of that research fall into his hands. So, my brother and I bet our lives on protecting that secret.

We could never let him reap the fruits of our research! That's why we gave our lives to protect the secret.

オマエを 見ていると なぜか ゼルダ様を 思い出すな… オマエが 王家ゆかりの者ならば もう少し 話をしてやろう。
When I look at you, I am somehow reminded of Zelda-sama… If you have a connection with the Royal Family, listen to me for a bit.

Somehow, you remind me of... Princess Zelda... Hmm... Since you may have some connection with the Royal Family, I will tell you a little more of our tale.

人々は、 数々の名曲を 作った 我らを 大音楽家と たたえた… だが、我ら兄弟は たんなる 音楽家などでは ない!
People extolled usas great composers who created many pieces of music… But, my brother and I were not mere composers!

Back then, people called us great composers because of the many musical masterpieces we wrote. But we brothers were not just composers.

王家に 伝わる フシギな力を、論理的に 解明する 使命を せおっていたのである。
We were burdened with orders to logically clarify what the mysterious power handed down by the Royal Family was.

We had a mission to analyze the mysterious powers of Hyrule's Royal Family.

研究が 完成した あかつきには 我ら兄弟の名は ハイラルの歴史に きざまれる… ハズであった。
When we completed our research, our names would be carved into Hyrule history… or so it should have been.

Our names would be a part of Hyrule's history if we could complete our research!

その日まで 我らの仕事は 「ミンナニハ ナイショ」 なのであったのだ。
Until that day, our work was to be “a secret to everyone”.

We kept our study extremely secret until we completed it.

Thanks, jacen! I'm glad the Ganondorf reference survived the official translation. My theory is still as workable. :)
