Shouldn't the 2nd pic read "Isn't the Federation supposed to be dealing with these guys?"

I think you're right because 'the Federation' is a single entity, so it should be isn't instead of aren't.

But anyways, these screens look great! I'm glad to see so much progress on this.

Honestly I didn't think about it when I was writing that line... I suppose I assumed the Federation were a group entity:

Aren't those seagulls...
Aren't the Federation...

Sounds right to me.

Then again, I barely passed English GCSE.

I think it sounds fine either way. I think it can be a single or group entity.

Keep up the good work!

Strunk & White says that a group entity when treated as a whole is singular. "The band sucked live." "The Federation ate the cheese." "The IRS fucked up my taxes."

However, when you're dealing with individual members of the group entity, they're treated as plural: "The band's members were off-key." "Those Fed soldiers have stinky cheese farts." "The IRS collector is to blame."

To recap, the thing as a whole is ONE THING. The Federation, The IRS, The Band. You wouldn't refer to a box as plural just because it contained twelve cans of soda, would you?

Sugoi!


TL Note: "Sugoi" means "totally badass" in Japanese.

Actually, Sugoi means "awesome," in the sense of the scale of an event. It can be applied to both good and bad things. So, a 1080 degree spin on a skateboard would be sugoi, but so would a Gojira attack.
I know, but I was  mocking the TL notes referenced in the prior post. Fansubbers do stupid things, and I fully expect to see siuch a note in a fansub script someday where "Cool!" would've been a perfectly acceptable translation.

Something along those lines, only with less accuracy in the note.





APPRIVOISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As long as the editor does a good enough job with the "localization," I'll be a happy clam.
I wish the editor luck, it is a very huge game.

Adios...

That's a pretty persuasive argument. I'll have to start thinking about pronouns :-C
