    Remember 9/11

    The saddest day in American History. :'(
    Since this Thursday is 9/11, my school's Spirit had Spirit Week this week, and this Thursday, we need to wear red, white, and blue.

    Pokemon game translator fired by Nintendo?

    Dude, he was Canadian? I didn't know that. Neat.

    Anyway, this makes me sad. I've always really enjoyed the translation and localization of the Pokémon games. While I'm sure he probably just did the rough translation and localization himself, that's still a huge job. I'm rather curious to know what games will be like from now on. Will it be noticeable now that the main translator is gone? Will I forget about this and not find any difference? Time will tell, I suppose.

    Wow, this is bad news.

    Just when Diamond & Pearl was his most competent translation too. This is a little sad. :x

    Then again, the likes of Bill Trinen and the likes working on Pokémon is a little interesting, too.

    I'm asking myself the same question, .freak. O_o I'm really surprised. Never thought they'd boot someone that reliable. Goes to show nothing is guaranteed in business.

    Wow. I mean, it's translation; how much more control can they have over it than what they already had?

    Supposedly Nintendo wants bigger control over their translations, therefore their "internal handling" as described by Nob/Douglas.

    We all know the amazing work he's done ever since the start of the series (also, coincidence - Blue/Red was released September 1st 2008), yet apparently Nintendo wants to take a closer approach to the whole process of translation.

    Like he said before, it's most definitely not a quality problem, and I'm sure we can all be witnesses to that.

    I heard about that. I was kind of shocked, not only to find out that it was one person doing all the translating, but also they he got the boot. I mean there are still Pokemon games coming out, why kick someone who's been doing the games for... 10 years?

    It wasn't a question, I just found it hard to believe that the translation "team" consisted of only one person.

    And to answer your question, Ichaste, yes, he was the sole translator for the games. Not sure if he was responsible for anything else OTHER than the games.

    He's also said on the SomethingAwful forums that it wasn't his main source of income either way, despite making $500-$1000 every day.

    Wait... nevermind. I just realized that Nob Ogasawara = Douglas Dinsdale.
