For years, the translation of Japanese eroge has been done by publishers, enthusiastic anime memesters, and machines. Now, a known software tool has received a new update that has massively improved the quality of machine translations. ‘MTool’, Made by AdventCirno (visit his Patreon), lets you translate any eroge you wish to play in 10 minutes, give or take.
The software is only 80mb in size. You can download MTool at https://trs.mtool.app/release.php?lang=en. The tool works on just about every version of RPG Maker and some visual novels. It automatically detects the game engine, but seems to struggle with any games made with the Unity engine.
You will still need to change your system locale to Japanese, for your machine to be able to run Japanese softwares. Read our guide how to do that switch.

MTOOL runs off an online server and needs constant internet connection. It does cache info, but the server sometimes needs to be backed up. During those times, the backup server is only available to paying Patrons.
According to Rastafoo, our domestic writer super star, the translations that the software produces are almost perfect. The tool has been in production for five years that we know of. Give it a try and let us know in the comments how your experience was!
