As many games are only available in their home language of Japanese you may or may not have trouble getting through them without some sort of guidance. That's where the following programs will assist.

Programs marked with a * require usage of hook codes. Despite build-in text thread detection, some games make grabbing text from them more difficult than others due to the way they've been coded and that's where these mythical hook codes help programs get them right. You can find some of these in relevant pastebins, or just googling for something like "gamename agth ith h-code". The agthDB is dead now

Offline Translators

Chiitrans lite

Patch for Google Translate:!Qm4hBDiS!dIkD17EOpxgjNk0q-OiVnsWUVUCinuex3i-j_bp6G_0
Replace translators.js and in "{Install location}\Chiitrans Lite\www\js" with the files in the zip to enable google translate. Once installed, Open chiitrans lite and click "Options" Make sure "Capture text from Clipboard" is checked and then click on translation. Choose whether you want to see source only (Japanese), translations only (English)[recommended] or both at the same time. Click on additional translators and choose the ones you want to use (recommended Google and/or Atlas). Click OK, then OK again to save your settings. While the game is running, choose the process from the dropdown (usually game.exe), open the .exe file using the folder button or select the window with the window button and click connect. The game should now be translated in the translation window as you play.

If you are getting a blank box when hooking with chiitrans lite, then use ITH VNR as a workaround:
