< report >Since a lot of translation companies hire freelancers, it can be difficult to find information on who actually did the translation. I'm surprised translated VNs still don't have the translator listed under the staff section. Since VNDB is kinda the go to site for information on VN's for a fair amount of people, don't you think this information should be added?

< report >I can't remember where it was, but there was a thread discussing a rework of the staff section, which would also include translators, so it's probably in the works. For now it's just sometimes mentioned in the release page.Last modified on 2022-05-29 at 00:58

< report >For now, translators, editors, QA, etc. related to a localization or translation are added in the release notes.

As Draconyan mentioned, staff for different releases/editions is currently in the works.Last modified on 2022-05-29 at 01:13

I'd like it if more people could cover a lot of earlier translations, I mostly covered the ones that have easier to find credits and were released in the last several years
