Welcome to the Black 2 and White 2 translation project thread! I was here briefly in the past for the Black and White project, but I'm back now to see if we can do the same thing for Black 2 and White 2.
I've made Github repositories for the main files, and for the story files separately. The 0000 folders will be the ones to translate into English, and the 0001 folders will remain Japanese. The files almost mirror each other, except for the fact the files in 0001 are Kanji. They should be used as a reference for translating the files in 0000.
General files repo (menus, attacks, etc.)
Story and Overworld repo
How to contribute to the project
The procedure is the following. If you want to contribute, sign up for the Github, fork the project on github, translate the text in a file, then commit your changes, all commits will be revised and the ones deemed adequate will be pulled into the master branch of the project and used in the patch. To install git on windows you can follow the instructions here: http://kylecordes.com/2008/git-windows-go orhttps://git.wiki.kernel.org/index.ph...InstallMSysGit a recommended git gui tool is git-cola but feel free to use it through command line or any other gui tool. Help for github can be found at http://help.github.com/ or you may ask in our our #projectpokemon irc channel.
Translating to languages other than English: If you are interested in translating to another language please fork the original project and name yours something like Pokemon Black White [Language] Translation we will clone those and generate patches, when you tell us that there is enough progress for a patch to be generated.
I've made an IRC channel on the Project Pokémon server for the project.
I have IRC mobile, so I'll most likely be in there during acceptable hours. (EST)
Once we have a suitable amount of stuff translated, our first patch will be released. When the time comes, I'll explain how to apply the patch. Do not requests any ROMs here. If you do, you'll face the unfortunate consequences.

I am doing a test on a few common Flash Cards, forgive me if I have forgotten some, I will try and add them in later:
Also don't let this deter you if it states your card is not compatible, please try anyway and notify us if I am incorrect.
Desmume: Working (0.9.7+)
Acekard 2i: Working (On latest 1.8.9 Acekard firmware)
DStwo: Working (On latest DStwo 1.16 firmware)
R43DS: Working (On latest v1.58b firmware)
CycloDS: Working (2.30)
R4i Gold Pro: Working, needs modifying (1.49.2 firmware), Press "Y" and then "X" with game selected and change settings so "reset in game" is off.
R4i Dual Core: Working, needs modifying (1.49.2 firmware) Press "Y" and then "X" with game selected and change settings so "reset in game" is off.
R4 Revolution/Non SDHC: Working, needs modifying (Latest Wood r4) Press "Y" and then "X" with game selected and change settings so "reset in game" is off.
R4isdhc-silver: Not working currently (Firmware 1.30.2) Please notify me if you get it to work.
EZ Flash Vi Working (Latest firmware).
The cards that are "working but needs modifying" currently have a bug where you cannot enable the c gear without crashing the game. Make sure you save after the first gym straight away as a precaution in case you forget to select "No" when it asks to enable C Gear.
Keep in mind this may not be 100% the same for everyone, I am basing this on my results and that of people in the IRC.

Made this account just to thank you and Ruinairas for picking up this project
I really appreciate it ahaha
This pull request will put Pokemon, Abilities and Moves at 100%. Items that were in BW1 are also fully translated.
Edit: The work above was generated entirely by script. This script (and consequently this translation) could be further extended by modifying the script to include natures, types, stats ("Attack," "Defense," etc.) or anything else that's likely going to be an easy word-for-word replacement kind of thing. I'm tapping out--got some things that actually need to get done today, but feel free to modify my script yourself.
We've made a lot of general progress in the main files. Items, Abilities,Natures, Battle Systems, Menus, etc. Trainer names are WIP. Trainer dialogue will be started soon as well.
V1 is released. See the OP for details.
Thankyou contributors and Soneek for your help.
-Patch confirmed working on Acekard 2i. (So far)
Great stuff, can you guys translate the Unova Link stuff? I dunno what I'm activating! (btw this is Unagi..)
Double post, but I don't care. You guys left out the translations of "switch pokemon" and "run" whne a poke dies in a wild battle.
SWEET!!!! Thanks so much for this dude, keep up the excellent work!
v1.1 will be up within 24 hours. Some updates for status screens and the touch screen during battle. Also, we have a new title screen for White 2.
Credit to Kakkoii for both title screens.
nice another translation patch. hopefully u can catch up and do better than the....other one (which has been rather sloppy to date with copypasta gym leaders/badges and several other bugs, plus the thread is riddled with too many noobs asking questions)
