Project: Lighthouse began this fan translation project as an English only venture in December 2017. In April 2018 an offer to continue forward with the project as a collaborative effort was proposed by Ace Combat Fan. This new collaborative translation project was then capable of presenting a full translation of the book in multiple languages.
