Well the point of translation is to have everything in a given language I think, why do you want to keep english names of mods? I don't know how Japanese users are playing in Japan, but don't you guys have your games entirely translated to JP? 

 

I recommend to not sort the list, keep the order as in original english file or you may lose the context.

Japanese does not always have words that correspond to English words.
In Japanese, katakana is used to express things and concepts that did not originally exist in Japan, or when it is difficult to understand even if translated literally or freely.
Even in games, many words that express the pronunciation of the original word in katakana are used.
Example: ge-mu(game), re-da-(radar), dame-ji(damage), korekushon(collection), etc
 

Currently, the problem is that Japanese players who use modpack can no longer select Japanese for the guide text displayed by the installation program.
Therefore, as a first step, I would like to revive the Japanese localization of the guidance display.
Regarding the name of the mod, (if there is a request among Japanese players) I would like to take it to the next step.
How about that?

I understand that I shouldn't rearrange the lines.

I don't change anything like that, so it's most likely a random occurence. Give me examples.

It is found in the following positions. Is it okay to delete anything other than the beginning?

00000000 EF BB BF
000024D1 EF BB BF
00002504 EF BB BF
00005040 EF BB BF
00005BB7 EF BB BF

0000813B EF BB BF
00008188 EF BB BF

I translated the donation message that appears first in the modpack installer into Japanese so that it is easy for Japanese people to understand.
If you can make the installer display the message in Japanese when the user chooses Japanese, use this sentence.
I hope that donations will increase as much as possible.
 

Translation:
Request
To keep this modpack up to date, I (Aslain) have to spend a lot of time and money, which is a big burden.
I would be grateful if you could join me as my supporter on patreon.com or donate via Paypal to continue the activity.
Please consider it.
