    Hi all,

    Quick thread on the program I used when I would play Chinese games to read the text. I use what is called a OCR program. I would run it with the game. Then, I just hover the mouse over the text in game and the program translates it for me off to the side... It has been a long time since I used it so not sure what FREE VERSION I was usuing...

    But here are some other methods if the Active version is hard to find:

    1) Take a screen shot of all the text you want. Try and crop the image to the text only stuff

    2) Go to places like here: http://www.onlineocr.net/ and upload the image...

    3) Profit. :) Read the translation.

    I used this this upload version when I started, but really the "hover over text live translation" program was better. I will try and find it and post here if I do. But what you want to google is FREE OCR program.

    Thanks, i didnt know this existed for screenshots making.
    However its too much of a hassle for me to constantly do this, but i can see the use of this for others :)

    One thing I did in chinese games was take screen shots, and then translate them later...or simply use it if you are in serious doubt of what a item in your inventory does (or skill). The rest: story, etc...can wait for official translation :)

    And of course the "point and scan" live translators do it instantly as you play so no time loss....But I forgot what program I was using back then XD

    I had trouble with that link as well... Which is why I mentioned you Google other versions.
    I successfully translated X.A.O.C. Online in China for all items and skills and quest objectives. I also translated those things in Phantasy Star 2 Japan... It works, just have to find a good OCR. (The one I used was downloaded. I never used browser ones... Until today, and ya it sucked).
