Post Policenauts Manual Scanlation - Request for help
Hello everyone. For a long, long time, I've kept this stuff until Marc was able to retranslate the whole manual, but because it's been so long and I'm going to start the Spanish translation of Policenauts, here's a small freebie:

http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?fwc6b4ac966ycor

Yes, it's in Spanish, but mostly based on the (poor?) Takamichi's translation. And no, that size's not the final product, it's been resized for easier downloads.

What do I need? Guys who can do the American translation of the manual, and make it good (I'd hate to see Engrish around there). While most of the stuff is from Takamichi (But still could use a rewrite), there's some modifications I made to fit the English patch.

Also, I'm no pro scanlator, so if you see any Photoshop quirks that should be fixed, please tell me. All these pages were scanned from my own manual.

It looks good. I don't speak Spanish very well, so I can't really judge.
Let's see what Artemio has to say.

Also, what version do you have?
My manual from the original print of the game (SLPS-00215~6) is slightly different.

It's The Best version, SLPM 86048~9. Just remember I changed a couple of things to suit the English translation.

Oh, Marc and Artemio already had a copy of this.

I see. Thanks for clearing that up.

I'll do a quick brief about what's changed on this manual:

Page 02, left side: Added additional credits for the translation of the game, manual, and Spanish edition.
Page 02, right side: It's a almost perfect duplicate of the Precautions/Health Warning found in PAL manuals, with the exception of the NTSC-J. Copied from the PAL manuals, probably needs to do the same on NTSC-U.
Page 03, right side: Slightly rewrote part of the Story section.
Page 04, right side: Changed "Voice Cast" with "Japanese Voice Cast".
Page 05, left side: Removed the double language on the names, kept only the English version.
Page 06, right side: Removed the double language on the names, kept only the English version.
Page 07, left side: Removed the double language on the names, kept only the English version. Changed the screenshots.
Page 07, right side: Removed the "Quit game" option, because it was removed on the English version. Changed the screenshot. I've been unable to find the Watch and Bomb icons, could use a hand there.
Page 08, left side: Changed the screenshots.
Page 09, left side: Changed the screenshot, removed the hiragana/katanana part.
Page 09, right side: Changed the screenshots and the purpose of them, removed options that were eliminated on the English version (Font, displayed lines, hiragana/katakana).
Page 10, left side: Changed the screenshot, simplified the Options tree removing the options that were eliminated on the English version.
Page 10, right side: Changed the screenshot.
Page 11, both sides: Changed the screenshots.

I just bought a new scanner (The old one doesn't want to work with Windows 7), and I also bought the original, non-The Best copy of PSX Policenauts.

I've checked the differences between the "The Best" manual and the Standard one. The basic changes are:
- Pictures change on the front and back cover.
- Standard edition uses in some parts a Helvetica, Arial-ish font, "The Best" is most likely Rodin from FontWorks.

Also, I've finished scanning the Saturn version (But God knows where I can find a Japanese translator), just to keep it ready for Facundo and SaturnAR.

About the PSX Spanish-English version... I guess Artemio is busy, but honestly, I don't purely need an Spanish-English translator, more like proofreaders with native knowledge of US English.
