Here is the Hero's Shade quote(At least this is what ZZ thinks you are looking for.) it was on post number 1363 and Impossible didn't edit the link to it in his OP, as usual blue is Japanese, red is this sites translation and the final line is NoA:

You have finally acquired all of the special techniques.
You have at last mastered all of the hidden skills.

勇者として生をうけながら 後世にそれを伝えることの出来なかった 我が無念も、ようやく晴らすことが出来た
I accepted the life of the hero, but was unable to pass these along to those who came after. Finally, my regrets have been dispelled.
Although I accepted life as the hero, I could not convey the lessons of that life to those who came after. At last, I have eased my regrets.

幾多の戦いを経て なお、曇りなき眼で未来を見据えるそなたなら
If you fight numerous battles and continue to focus on the future with undimmed eyes?
You who have marched through countless foes, each mightier than the last... You, who now gaze to the future with vision unclouded...

必ずや、このハイラルを在りし日の 神々が愛でた大地に戻すことが出来るだろう
You will surely be able to return Hyrule to being the land of yore that the gods loved.
Surely you can restore Hyrule to its stature of yore as the chosen land of the gods.


Advance without faltering, my child!
Go and do not falter, my child!

Thank you, I really need this.

Could someone translate the scene in Skyward Sword, where Zelda blesses the Master Sword and seals herself, please?
I have heard somewhere in the internet, that the term "Unbreakable Spirit" wasn't used in the japanese version, but "Spirit of a Beast".
I need a comfirmation on this as it could have a connection to TP Link and OoT Link (Hero's Shade), as both appear as divine beasts.

We'd need a dump of the original Japanese text. I haven't seen one yet.

Damn, I took a break from every Zelda site back in August of last year to avoid Skyward Sword spoilers, and it somehow led to me avoiding them all for over a year. I guess with Hyrule Historia there's not much timeline discussion left now. Or rather, timeline discussion that's not pure bullshit.

Consecutive tough schedules led me to never actually start Skyward Sword either, and then I got distracted by other games. I really need to play that then finally see what's happened on Zelda sites since then.

I have currently another question.
During the Biggoron Sword Trading Sequense in Ocarina of Time, what does the old lady Granny from the potion shop tells about Grog?
Here the NoA line.
"If you see that fool, give this to him. It is the strongest medicine I have ever produced. However, this potion will not work on a monster..."

Also here the German translation.
"Wenn Du den Dummkopf siehst, dann gib ihm dies. Es ist die stärkste Medizin, die ich je gebraut habe. Aber sie wirkt nicht bei jedem!"
"If you see the dumbhead, then give him this. It is the strongest medicine I have ever brewed.
But this potion will only work on certain inviduals!"

We are currently discussing about how the Lost Woods work.

It might be better to get the japanese lines from the blond kokiri girl as well. IIRC her name was Fado.
I need to know what actually happens to creatures, which enter the Lost Woods.

Apparently the forum is archiving various topics and posts on its own, according to one of the admins. I registered here because of the issue as well, so I'm really hoping it gets fixed soon. Those translations were a blessing to the Zelda community.

The topic archiver went berserk and archived everything on the forum. Then it restored everything but didn't do it correctly.


Luckily, I have a backup of the forum from last November, which is when I think the madness started. I'll be looking into restoring the missing posts manually.


Meanwhile, you can still access the original topic on http://web.archive.o...ese-game-texts/

Aaaaand it's fixed. I successfully restored the missing posts into this topic, and will be restoring the rest of the missing posts across the forum shortly.

What does the Japanese version of the text about the Lost Woods turning people into Stalfos say?
