You just supply a zip file with allegedly having a game in it. Could be kinda handy to at least know what kinda game this is about.

Nono, I mean how you just drop an unknown game and ask someone to just translate it, if that's even possible.

You aren't linking the post, you are linking a zip file.

You have done this twice, infact.

Looks like it is a wolf engine game? If so:
...
If you have no clue where to start, you probably should buckle down and get serious about learning japanese. (Or just play english or already translated games...) Otherwise, learn how to use awkward machine translation tools that may, or may not work for your particular game. Or learn how to use Wolf RPG's editor and translate the game by hand to create an english version.

Here, from vgperson's guide:

Here are some relevant tools to be familiar with when dealing with untranslated games (this one targets visual novels, but some of the tools at the bottom of the guide might be something you could use.):

Alternatively:
Look at the wolf RPG section... it might give you a direction.

Try to use this tool to extract all text and translate it... and hopefully it can reinsert it?

EDIT:
I might recommend playing Ys I Chronicles (or Complete) if you like that bump combat gameplay and want a good story.

Hey zxin~ I tried the linked game, Sword Story ~Eternal, and it seemed like an ordinary wolf RPG game until I saw the combat... Rather than your average turn-based battle system, it appears to be a real-time "bump combat" system; seen in the early Ys series games. That's where you have to run into the enemy at certain angles in order to dish out damage. Otherwise you'll likely be damaged.
Like this:

I found this game on Vector and it looks interesting but i cant exactly read it
After trying Sword Story and hearing that reason for wanting to play it, I recommended something similar but translated into english. Plus it's good and a classic, and furthermore may have inspired the "bump combat" approach used.
