This application translates cutscenes in Fate/Grand Order JP & NA into a variety of different languages. It features real time machine translation of the most recent event using DeepL. Older content uses the official translation from the North American region. Teams of translators are working on human translations in various different languages.

Video tutorial on how to use this app:

If you're able, become a Patreon to help support the app. There aren't currently any pre-releases available for the English translation.


If the text is too fast or slow, you can change text speed in the game settings. (Top = text speed, bottom = scroll speed)

Currently, English is supported for:

  • Official: Fuyuki to LB5.5 & Ooku (including events older than 2 years).
  • Machine & Edited: Everything else
  • Human: LB6 (Finished), Tunguska Sanctuary (Finished), LB6.5: Traum (Underway).

A Spanish translation for F/GO is also available through this app. Please see for more information. A Portuguese Brazilian translation is also available.

Is this safe, will I get banned?

Yes, it is safe, no, you will not be banned.

Here is why:

  • The app modifies cached story scripts on your SD card (or internal storage), it does not modify or alter the base game.
  • The game does not and can not detect the modification of cached story scripts.
  • The app has 80,000+ downloads with 10,000+ active users, and has been operating for over 2 years without any bans or warnings being issued because of the app.
  • It is not in the interest of the game's developers or publishers to ban or otherwise punish people for translating story text.
  • The app is open source, so you can vet what it does, and build it yourself if you are worried.

However, there are some things you should do before using this app to ensure the safety of your account.

  • Always ensure you download the app from or this GitHub page. Do not trust third party sources.
  • Create and write down a bind code for your account before using the app.

Does this work on NA?

NA is supported for English to Spanish and PtBr translations starting with Translate/FGO version 2.0.0.
