Hi everyone !

It's your lucky day ChercheurObscur, you're not the only french guy now (then we can talk between us) !

This makes for a little while that I know the FFX-3 Chat which is famous, and because this is the only place for his revelations about the Final Fantasy X-2.5 novel.

I received the book the day of its French release and I read it (I'll read the novel a second time) but I do not know if I will participate in a possible full English translation for the moment, because it requires a lot of time and I prefer concentrate myself on my studies. Nevertheless, I am able to contribute on some details, no worries.

I have a question ! Do you do necessarly the contraction of expressions such as "do not" "you are" in the conversations of a novel ?

But at the end, I'll let CrystalOfLies do the fixation if necassary.

EDIT : Chapter 1 translation done !  :D

May I ask where the translation is? I'm not seeing where you can read it...

Oh sorry, CrystalOfLies is "currently" fixing and rephrasing it, because I'm not a native. But it won't be too long, don't worry.  ;)

EDIT : The chapter 1 is online ! Enjoy ! So you decided to copy paste everything, CrystalOfLies... well I don't mind, but I will ask Internal Medecine Doctor to prevent everyone from posting in this new topic, else...  :P At the end, it's more clear this way, good job ;)

Just a strange sentence :

“Yuna seemed to take pleasure with the Gullwings activities, except for Paine, who said it loud and clear.

-> This is weird. In my translation, it is "took apart Paine"  ??? Should I have written "Paine took apart" ? Maybe you misunderstood because of this ?

Maybe you mean 'apart from Paine'. 'Except for Paine' means the same thing.
The official 'Shinra' of the FFX boards.

Wanna know stuff? Ask me. "I know everything."

I somehow can't answer? "... I'm just a kid."

Maybe my translation is wrong... I thought "Take apart" was the verb "Throw" but in a speaking way. Do you understand ? If that's not the case, you can just use "say", it's alike.

Oh, do you maybe mean "took away", as in, Paine UNDERSTOOD this? Or something like that? It is hard to explain. xD

Not really, maybe it is something specific to French language. I think the best is to delete this part, it's not like it's important.

Hi ChercheurObscur, thanks for taking the time to do this.  ;D I've been studying French for quite a while (English is my first language) So if you have any difficulty or questions, I'd be happy to give my opinion. Also, Lulu is a complete b!tch in this. If this translation's accurate, then they've really thrown her character development from the previous games out the window...   :-\

Based on the first chapter, I kinda have to agree with you about lulu, mambo!

The sentiment of what she's saying and the desire to protect yuna is lulu-ish, yes. I can understand why she would say those things but... on the other hand, she seems almost to be disallowing yuna to speak for herself and ignoring all of Yunas character growth throughout x-2. As much as I think Lulu will always think of Yuna as her little sister and feel a need to protect her, the way she talks in the first chapter, she treats her almost like a child, and I would think that after everything lulu has seen Yuna go through, she would see her as not only capable but DESERVING of mmaking her own decisions, no matter how it effects yunas image. Granted, I think she only says these things because she thinks that it's what yuna would want (to protect her image and all) but at the same time shouldn't she recognize that Yuna has grown a lot on her journey in x-2? I don't know...... even for lulu, who is blunt and bossy, that seemed a bit much to me...  im torn about it.
