Universal Game Translator – Use Google's Services to Live-translate Dreamcast Games

Get ready to finally play and understand your imported Dreamcast games!

  1. Snaps a picture from the HDMI signal, sends it to google to be analyzed for text in any language
  2. Studies the layout and decides which text is dialog and which bits should be translated “line by line”
  3. Overlays the frozen frame and translations over the gameplay HDMI signal
  4. Allows copy/pasting the original language or looking up a kanji by clicking on it
  5. Can translate any language to any language without needing any local data as Google is doing all the work, can handle rendering Japanese, Chinese, Korean, etc (The font I used is this one)
  6. Controlled by hotkeys (desktop mode) or a control pad (capture mode, this is where I’m playing on a real console but have a second PC controller to control the translation stuff)
  7. (Added in later versions) Can read the dialog outloud in either the original or translated language
  8. Can drag a rectangle to only translate a small area (Ctrl-F10 by default)
