Hi,

I am pretty sure an English patch is technically impossible… sorry.

LOL. I figure you learned about Vocaloid in the same way I did. Searching Danbooru when you saw the massive ever-growing wall of Hatsune Miku fanart.

I’m new to Vocaloid and I’ve never used a japanese pack (tho I’m considering it. For what I’m doing the language of the singer is irrelivant and the japanese is just a mountain easier to work with)

I’m unsure if installing Hatsune as a singer can be done on the english version or not (It’s Miriam that I’m using). I assume you mean an english interface and not actually translating Miku into english. Because yeah, that would be impossible.

So can anyone confirm beyond a shadow of a doubt that a japanese singer can be installed into an english interface? I see no reason why not and the help file even has a section on using Japanese in english so I figure it’s possible.

Hope that helps you out more. If you did mean translating her into english. Sorry. But that’s just silly. Oh, well. We’ll always have our nice artwork of her:)

I am sure they could co-exist on the same machine. BUT remember that Miriam is Vocaloid1 and Hatsune Miku is Vocaloid2, so they would require 2 different software versions.

The bit I think is impossible is the fact that the English language has different phonemes (vocal sounds) to Japanese. Obviously many sounds are shared, but there are also sounds that are unique to both languages. This means that you couldn’t simply convert a Vocaloid from one language to another.

If the product makers had made the source recordings in both languages then making 2 versions would be possible. I assume this didn’t happen, but maybe I am wrong.

Ok. So I just started using it and I figured I’d pop in here and clarify some things for future users.

1) The Hatsune pack has no english language setting. The interface will be in Japanese.
2) The installation relies on your windows settings. Thusly, you can install it in english.
3) Of course the singing can still emulate english in a horrible MELL kind of way. I’d say it’s not advised unless you’re trying to be funny.
4) The rumours of the introductory manga with it are entirely false. Looking into it I learned that was a doujin made by a japanese dude for a tutorial.
5) As expected, Hatsune is not compatible with any Vocaloid1 interface.
6) Looking closely at her, that’s the coolest skirt ever made. I hereby call it a "+6 DJ’s Skirt of Idolpower".

Is she compatable with the english Vocloid2, giving you an english interface with a japanese singer? I don’t know and likely never will. But I don’t see why not. It would function the same way as selecting Vocaloid1 singers did.

Does one need a Japanese keyboard to type out the kana though?

Yes, to type in japanese you need a japanese keyboard. And the english interface is good, isn’t it? ^^
You can always make her sing engrish, but trust me- it is very difficult. I’m still wondering how the person who made ‘fly me to the moon’ did it so well. ^^

I’ve been using the bar, but according to the HELP you can use the standard englishizations "like tsu, ka, ke, etc" and it will change them for you.

Hmmmmmm. Seems there’s no edit button either.

Ok. I was gonna edit my last post now that I see the term Romanji has been used around here.

You don’t need a JP keyboard to type Japanese. All you need is install the far east language pack for XP and enable the Japanese IME. I’ve typed countless Japanese (even chatted on JP MMORPGs) using an English keyboard on an English(? Region set to Japanese, but yea.) WinXP. Just type with romaji with the IME activated and it’ll convert you typing to Japanese.

こんな感じに~

That is if you know the romaji, I meant to type in [i:2qvl2ltq]directly[/i:2qvl2ltq] the japanese from the keyboard without any conversion.

Do a search on google for "JWPCE". Install it. Anything you type into the JWPCE box will be automatically converted into hiragana.

It also has charts that show what all the hiragana and katakana symbols are, and their equivalent roman-letter combination is (romaji).

[off topic]It can also give kanji converstion suggestions for any complete hiragana words (general several choices, because many many words in nihongo have several different meanings, whose meaning is determined by the context within which it is used. Makes learning the language FUN! NOT!). Anyway, you can ignore all the kanji features for the purposes of Vocaloid.[/off topic]

As for english interfaces, I got them without installing any mods. Heres how:

1) Custom installation of Miku Hatsune first, disabling vsti installation.
2) Installing prima OVER Miku Hatsune. Complete installation, including vsti.
3) Start the program…wala! English menus, and no mod required :)
Of course, for those that don’t want to fork over the extra cash from prima, this approach is not an option.

An additional potential problem with my approach…what you with this approach is not just an English interface..you get THE prima interface, verbatum. Some features of the prima interface are NOT compatable with Miku Hatsune. For instance, I have a useless Phonome Transfermation menu item, and a useless menu item where new words can be entered to be associated with a phonome. The dictionary is empty, and any words you add would be useless, because you can’t enter words for hatsune (or any other にほ vocaloid. You have to enter syllables, or she wont be able to sing it at all. I know, I tried as an experiment ;).

i’m using the IME to convert the romanji into full-width katakana and vocaloid is still giving all my note the default [a] am i doing something wrong? should i change it from full-width to half, or change it to hiragana, or something entirely different. after i enter in the characters they also end up as "?"s. did i do something wrong?

also does the "phoneme transformation" option do anything?
if someone cracks the interface and rights up a guide i would be eternally indebted.

[info]: my comp can read/display japanese characters fine.

Sooooo… everybody knows that the interface of the Japanese Vocaloids can be made English by simply deleting/moving/renaming all the files that end in "_Japanese.dll" in the program folder, riiiight? ;D Looks like the interface was made in English and then translated into Japanese.

Also, I don’t know about using kana, but for me, just romaji works fine as long as you don’t use letter combinations that don’t exist in Japanese. You can’t put a consonant by itself (except N) or you’ll get the dreaded [a].

First post! (and probably not the best way to do so! ^^; )

Are you sure you performed your steps correctly? I imagine you didn’t use the "change the ‘.dll’ " trick aforementioned; If that’s the case, I have no idea.

Go to vocaloid2 and rename following files:
vedit2_Japanese.dll => vedit2_Japanese.bak
SingerEditor2_Japanese.dll => SingerEditor2_Japanse.bak
Activate2_Japanese.dll => Activate2_Japanse.bak
VOCALOID2_Japanese.dll (!)=>(!) VOCALOID2_Japanse.bak

or just delete them.
