Re-Translations
For various reasons translations are not always accurate, and as such we've been given a wrong impression of the events in some of the games, and about Shining history. Fortunately, some of the important, mis-translated diaglogue has been re-translated by fans and are available below. Likewise, names often change in translations, and I've done my best to compile a list of the original Japanese names, their origins and how they should have been translated.
