< report >I was basically an all-around tester. I had to make sure there were no big bugs and was essentially another editor (looking for grammar/text issues).

I made some blogs posts to show a little insight on how a project like this may work from a QC standpoint. This isn't meant to throw shade at the translators/programmers for making a mistake. In fact, making mistakes is expected in software development (and probably translations) and I kinda just want to show how I personally found and presented the issues to the programmer/translator before they fixed it.

I posted these on /r/IMHHW (which coincidentally is where you can find the latest patch for both the MoeNovel/Steam version and the Japanese version of the VN):

Entry #1 - Basics, Explanations, Being a Second Editor, All in the Details:

Entry #5 - Accidental copy pastes caused lines to have a completely incorrect translations:

Entry #6 - Having to ask for context to make sure a line was spoken correctly

Entry #7 - Keeping terms, names and ellipses consistent:

Entry #8 - Amane's route epilogue movie text was kind of a hassle (spoilers): link
