As Ace Combat's Japanese-language canon material has begun disappearing off of official websites, we founded Encyclopædia Strangereal to preserve the original texts and images, as well as offering English translations of lost and/or Japanese-only content.
Some materials here have never been translated before, but material for which translations do already exist has also been retranslated. For decades, English speaking fans have made attempts at translating fluff from Japanese source material, almost always without knowing the language. Their efforts have been valiant, admirable, and occasionally even readable. They have also been full of misleading items, omissions, and outright innovations made to plausibly fill gaps in the translator’s understanding.
We are not professional translators - that is a skill far beyond simply knowing a language. We hope someone - ourselves, even - may improve upon on this work in the future. But, this should certainly be a significant step forward for the English-speaking Ace Combat community.
