In the North American release, there are several development logs by translators and bug fixers relating to text adjustments. Below you will find them in this order of appearance: Original Japanese text > English translator comments > Final in-game text.

rkn_1.txt

Found inside DATA.DAT > bin_ext > rkn_1.txt:

// ALTJ, aug09: NOTE: 18 CHARACTER LINE LIMIT
@0
//液体
// ALTJ, jul20: This appears to refer to Yggdrasil dew.
a liquid
@1
//日輪のごとき輪
// ALTJ, jul20: This appears to refer to the sun crown.
// MORGAN, jul25: Maybe "a shiny sun hat".
sun-like headgear
@2
//金属1
// ALTJ, jul20: This appears to refer to a gold nugget.
// WILL, jul22: What do these "(1)" and "(2)" etc. refer to? Would it be better as "1st metal" and "2nd metal", as in, for example, "Combine the 1st metal and the 2nd metal to make a..."?
// ALTJ, jul25: It's more like "one kind of metal" plus "a second kind of metal". 1st and 2nd imply a hierarchy to us, and we'd prefer to avoid them.
a metal (1)
@3
//金属2
// ALTJ, jul20: This appears to refer to orichalcum.
a metal (2)
@4
//カビ1
// ALTJ, jul20: This appears to refer to red mould.
mould (1)
@5
//カビ2
// ALTJ, jul20: This appears to refer to waterweed mould.
mould (2)
@6
//とても貴重なもの
// ALTJ, jul20: This appears to refer to orichalcum.
// WILL, jul22: In the file "add_alc.xls" that we translated recently (final submission jull20), we translated this as "something very valuable". Do you think we need to make the two consistent? They both refer to orichalcum.
// ALTJ, jul25: All of these need to fit within 18 characters. Would hate to force your translation to fit that limit. This needs to be checked.
// MORGAN, jul25: How about "a valuable item"? That would at least retain an echo of the other message. I think consistency would be preferable as it will probably help the player to identify the item.
// ALTJ, jul27: Changed to Morgan's idea.
a valuable item
@7
//指輪?
// ALTJ, jul20: This appears to refer to the recovery ring.
some kind of ring
@8
//ちからがつくもの1
// ALTJ, jul12: Would prefer to put number in parentheses, but goes over 18 character limit.
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the strength ring.
// MORGAN, jul25: How about "strengthener (1)"? I think we really need to be consistent about issues such as parentheses.
makes you strong 1
@9
//ちからがつくもの2
// ALTJ, jul12: Would prefer to put number in parentheses, but goes over 18 character limit.
// ALTJ, jul20: This appears to refer to the titan belt.
// MORGAN, jul25: How about "strengthener (2)"? I think we really need to be consistent about issues such as parentheses.
makes you strong 2
@10
//聖なるお守り
//ALTJ, jul20: This appears to refer to the holy talisman.
// WILL, jul22: "blessed" to be less obvious?
// ALTJ, jul25: Too much of a logical leap from "blessed amulet" to "holy talisman" perhaps? Thoughts, Morgan?
// MORGAN, jul25: I prefer "a blessed amulet". I think we should avoid straight repetitions of the target words wherever possible. I don't think the leap is too great either in this instance.
// ALTJ, jul27: Changed.
a blessed amulet
@11
//怒れるもの
// ALTJ, jul20: This appears to refer to the tough guy tattoo.
// MORGAN, jul25: Prefer: "a mark of strength"
// ALTJ, jul27: Changed.
a mark of strength
@12
//敵を眠らせる武器
// ALTJ, jul12: I don't like this wording, but "A weapon that puts enemies to sleep" is way over the limit.
// ALTJ, jul20: This appears to refer to the dream blade.
// WILL, jul22: How about the more ambiguous, "a sleepy weapon"? Or is that too obscure? Or even "a boring weapon"!!!??? It might make people think!
// MORGAN, jul25: I really don't like "sleeper". I would prefer "a sedative sword", "a tiring weapon". 
// ALTJ, jul27: Changed.
a tiring weapon
@13
//究極の指輪
// ALTJ, jul21: Appears to refer to the catholicon ring.
the ultimate ring
@14
//マヒを退ける指輪
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the full moon ring.
anti-paralysis ring

//まぼろしを退ける指輪
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the ring of truth.
anti-illusion ring
@16
//毒を退ける指輪 
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the ring of immunity.
anti-poison ring
@17
//はやぶさ
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the falcon blade.
// WILL, jul22: How transparent are these hints supposed to be? How about, "a bird of prey"?
// ALTJ, jul22: Very transparent, if the Japanese is any indication!
// ALTJ, aug09: Changed to "something falcon-y"
something falcon-y
@18
//聖なる道具
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the holy talisman.
// WILL, jul22: LOVE IT!
a holy tool
@19
//何かの腕輪
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the mighty armlet.
// WILL, jul22: Will this confuse, because there are bracers in the game, but the hint is actually for an "armlet"? "a wristband" perhaps?
// ALTJ, jul25: Or "type of armwear"?
// MORGAN, jul25: Bracer would definitely be confusing and should be changed. I would prefer: "a type of armband".
// ALTJ, jul27: Changed.
a kind of armband
@20
//さらなる奇跡
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the uber miracle sword.
// MORGAN, jul25: I would prefer: "a miracle and more".
another miracle
@21
//つるぎ?
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the miracle sword.
// WILL, jul22: "Some sword?" is an AE way of expressing this. I've suggested "a sword?" to be BE. Okay with you?
// ALTJ, jul25: Sure. Changed to "a kind of sword," though.
a kind of sword
@22
//至高の剣
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the liquid metal sword.
the ultimate sword
@23
//スライム王の証
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the slime crown.
// WILL, jul22: As we have "king slime" in the glossary, would that be better here perhaps? If not, perhaps lose the hyphen?
// MORGAN, jul25: Agreed. Please change to "king slime regalia".
// ALTJ, jul27: Changed.
king slime regalia
@24
//もっとも硬い金属
// ALTJ, jul20: This appears to refer to orichalcum.
the hardest metal
@25
//比類なき最強の剣
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the Dragovian king sword
// WILL, jul22: Other ideas, "unbeatable", "invincible", "unparalleled".
// MORGAN, jul25: Would prefer: "a matchless sword". I think there should be an indefinite article, incidentally.
// ALTJ, jul27: Changed.
a matchless sword
@26
//竜神族の伝説の剣
// ALTJ, jul12: Couldn't see any way around abbreviating. Drag = Dragovian.
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the Dragovian sword.
// WILL, jul22: Agreed, unless we get away from it completely. How about just, "dragon blade", or something like that?
// ALTJ, jul25: But how would you distinguish which Dragovian sword it's referring to, then?
// MORGAN, jul25: Not sure what you mean, AltJ. There are only two dragovian blades in the game and this is the recipe for the second one. "Drag" sounds silly to me. Prefer "dragon folk sword" or "sword of dragons".
// ALTJ, jul27: Changed. Was referring to the fact that the Japanese uses "legendary," but agree it isn't much of an identifier.
sword of dragons
@27
//人間界の最強の剣
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the liquid metal sword.
// WILL, jul22: "strong" --> "mighty" perhaps?
// ALTJ, jul25: Changed.
mighty human sword
@28
//聖なる武器
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the holy silver rapier.
// WILL, jul22: The Japanese is not so generous with its hint. How about, "a holy weapon" or "holy arms" to be obscure!?
// ALTJ, jul25: Changed from "a holy sword"
a holy weapon
@29
//盾?
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the light shield.
// WILL, jul22: Perhaps this "a kind of" construction is the way to go with @22 above?
a kind of shield
@30
//かがやく布
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the shimmering dress.
// WILL, jul22: Perhaps drop the indefinite article here, and just go with "shining cloth". Otherwise, perhaps "shining garb".
// ALTJ, jul25: Changed to second suggestion.
shining garb
@31
//するどいダガー
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the eagle dagger.
a sharp dagger
@32
//毒のあるもの
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the poison needle.
something poisoned
@33
//悪魔にまつわるもの
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the devil's tail.
something evil
@34
//サラサラしたもの
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the saint's ashes.
// WILL, jul22: Like it!!!
something gritty
@35
//毒の武器
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the poison needle.
a poison weapon
@36
//まがまがしいもの
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the devil's tail.
// WILL, jul22: "an ill-fated item" perhaps?
// ALTJ, jul25: Changed from "something ill-fated"
an ill-fated item
@37
//とがったモノ
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the iron nail.
// WILL, jul22: I prefer "something pointy" for this.
// ALTJ, jul25: Changed from "something sharp"
something pointy
@38
//ブーメラン?
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the razor wing boomerang.
// WILL, jul22: Again, this is quite an AE construction. Prefer just, "a boomerang", or "maybe a boomerang" if you want the element of doubt in there.
// ALTJ, jul25: Changed from "some boomerang"
a boomerang
@39
//強力な武器
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the metal king spear.
// MORGAN, jul25: Prefer: "a powerful weapon" unless "strong" is a hint of some kind.
// ALTJ, jul27: Changed.
a powerful weapon
@40
//かっちょいいオノ
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the moon axe.
a stylish axe
@41
//月の祝福
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the moons's mercy.
// WILL, jul22: How about, "lunar blessing" to be slightly less obvious?
// ALTJ, jul25: Changed from "moon's blessing"
lunar blessing
@42
//オノ?
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the bandit axe.
// WILL, jul22: As above, would prefer to avoid "some ...". Either "an axe" or "maybe an axe" as above, if that would fit in to wherever these strings are used.
// ALTJ, jul25: Changed from "some axe"
an axe
@43
//とうぞくの道具
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the thief's key.
// WILL, jul22: Your translation is closer to the Japanese, but how about "a crook's tool" to be less obvious?
// ALTJ, jul25: Changed from "a thief's tool"
a crook's tool
@44
//切れ味鈍いオノ
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the golden axe.
// ALTJ, aug25: Changed from "dull" to prevent confusion.
a blunt axe
@45
//パワーアップの道具
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the mighty armlet.
// WILL, jul22: Not sure about "modifying". How about, "a bolstering extra" or "a bracing aide" even!?
// ALTJ, jul25: "aide" always refers to a person in AE. Will "aid" work? Or "mighty armwear"? In any event changed from "a modifying tool." (It's literally "a tool for powering up" in the Japanese.)
// MORGAN, jul25: Maybe: "a power supplement".
// ALTJ, jul27: That sounds like a vitamin in AE, though.
a bolstering tool
@46
//大槌
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the uber war hammer.
// WILL, jul22: Note the "some" thing.
// ALTJ, jul25: Changed "some" to "a"
a big hammer
@47
//大斧
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the conquerer's axe.
// WILL, jul22: Note the "some" thing.
// ALTJ, jul25: Changed "some" to "a"
a big axe
@48
//うろこのついたもの
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the scale shield.
something scaly
@49
//竜にまつわるもの
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the dragon scale.
a dragon item
@50
//火の玉をとばす杖
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the wizard's staff.
// WILL, jul22: Won't this need an article like the others? ("a staff of fire") Also, we could use "stick" to be less obvious, if you wanted.
// ALTJ, jul25: There's only one staff that shoots fireballs, which is why we opted against "a".
// MORGAN, jul25: I'm not sure that distinction will be obvious to the player, so I would prefer: "a staff of fire".
// ALTJ, jul27: Added "a"
a staff of fire
@51
//守りをもたらす杖
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the rune staff.
// WILL, jul22: Won't this need an article like the others? ("a protective staff") Stick?
// ALTJ, jul25: Similar to above, we think there's only one staff this can refer to, so avoided "a"
// MORGAN, jul25: I'm not sure that distinction will be obvious to the player, so I would prefer: "a protective staff".
// ALTJ, jul27: Added "a"
a protective staff
@52
//うれしくなるもの
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the garter.
// WILL, jul22: Again, if this is going to be plugged into a sentence, it probably won't work like this. "something cheering" perhaps?
// ALTJ, jul25: Not used in a sentence, but rather an equation.
it makes you happy
@53
//偉大なる大神
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to Odin's bow.
// MORGAN, jul25: Wouldn't it make sense to keep the weapon connotation? Perhaps: "a god's weapon"
// ALTJ, jul27: Not in the Japanese. RIKI?
a great god
@54
//巨大な弓
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the great bow.
a giant bow
@55
//動物の皮
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the magic beast hide.
an animal pelt
@56
//マジカルなもの1
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the magical hat.
a magic item (1)
@57
//マジカルなもの2
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the magical mace.
// WILL, jul22: If this and the one above have the "(1)" and "(2)" because they're going to be used in the same sentence, then "a magic item" and "another magic item" would work much more naturally.
// ALTJ, jul25: Are we absolutely certain that they will always appear one right after the other, though?
a magic item (2)
@58
//かがやく宝石
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the ruby of protection.
a glittering jewel
@59
//かがやくうでわ
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the gold bracer.
// WILL, jul22: Needs an article? ("a lustred bracer" perhaps?)

// ALTJ, jul27: Added "a" and made it "gleaming"
a gleaming bracer
@60
//魔力をこめた服
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the cloak of evasion.

something hard
@64
//くつろげる服
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to boxer shorts.
// WILL, jul22: "snug clothes" or something like that perhaps?
// MATT, jul25: Boxer shorts seem like the opposite of snug to me, though.
// MORGAN, jul25: Maybe: "private clothing"?
// ALTJ, jul27: Changed.
private clothing
@65
//聖なる服
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the angel's robe.
holy clothes
@66
//魔力秘めし衣
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the magic vestment.
a magical garment
@67
//赤いローブ
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the crimson robe.

// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to magic water.
enchanted water
@69
//赤い草
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to nook grass.
// WILL, jul22: "grass with a kick"?
// MORGAN, jul25: I like Will's suggestion. Change to: "grass with a kick".
// ALTJ, jul27: red grass is the literal Japanese, though. RIKI?
red grass
@70
//聖なる衣
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the princesses's robe.
// WILL, jul22: Given that we have "holy clothes" above, and this, we think, refers to the "Princesses's robe", would "a royal garment" be better?
// ALTJ, jul25: Changed "holy" to "royal"
// MORGAN, jul25: Golly, I hope it isn't "princesses's" in the glossary!
a royal garment
@71
//ドレス?
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the shimmering dress.
// WILL, jul22: This is fine as is, but if you wanted more of the "?" element, you could have "perhaps a dress" if it would fit when substitued into whatever text this will end up in.
// ALTJ, jul25: Prefer the current format, as it's going to be in an equation style.
some kind of dress
@72
//銀色のもの
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the silver platter.
something silver
@73
//守りの鏡
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the mirror shield.
// WILL, jul22: Article? ("a reflective guard" would fit in 18 chars.)
// MORGAN, jul25: I agree that this needs an article. Prefer: "a reflective guard"
// ALTJ, jul27: Changed.
a reflective guard
@74
//いやしの水
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to amor seco essence.
healing water

// WILL, jul22: Article? ("the best shield" fits inside 18 chars.)
// ALTJ, jul25: Changed from "strongest shield"

@78
//ぼうし?
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the pointy hat.
// WILL, jul22: "a hat of sorts" perhaps!
some kind of hat
@79
//知的に見えるぼうし
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the scholar's cap.
// WILL, jul23: It's difficult with the character limit to get closer to the Japanese. "a hat with brains" is further from it, but perhaps more amusing?
// MORGAN, jul25: Prefer: "a clever chap cap"
// ALTJ, jul27: Changed.
a clever chap cap
@80
//なんとかハット
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the magical hat.
// WILL, jul22: Again, perhaps "a hat of sorts" or "a so-called hat" or "a hat (?)" even. I think the punctuation in brackets could work.
// ALTJ, jul25: Our issue with your first two suggestions is that they imply that the item isn't actually a hat. Dropped "some" in favor of "a," however.
a hat
@81
//かっこいいぼうし
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the bronze helmet.
a stylish helm
@82

// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the iron headgear.
an iron-hard helm
@85
//やみのチカラ
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the dark robe.
// WILL, jul22: Need an article? "the power of dark" or "dark power"?
// ALTJ, jul25: Or "dark garb"?
// MORGAN, jul25: I prefer: "dark garb".
// ALTJ, jul28: Changed, but this is more of a hint than the Japanese offered. RIKI?
dark garb
@86
//軽いぼうし
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the feathered cap.
a lightweight hat
@87
//風にまつわるもの
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to Mercury's bandana.
something windy
@88
//頭を守るもの
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the bandana.
// WILL, jul22: Will this work if plugged into a sentence? I might be completely barking up the wrong tree, but perhaps "a noggin guard" or "a noggin wrapper" or "a head wrapper" would be safer?
protects your head
@89
//銀のかがやき
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the silver tiara.
glimmering silver
@90
//金のかがやき
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to the gold nugget.
glimmering gold
@91
//超のつくチーズ
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to scorching cheese.
// WILL, jul22: Could probably get away with no article here, as above with the "silver" and "gold", and as "some powerful cheese" doesn't fit, I suppose we'll have to!
powerful cheese
@92
//汚いもの
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to dragon dung.
// WILL, jul22: Nice!
something stinky
@93
//すっごいチーズ
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to c-c-cold cheese.

// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to amor seco essence.
a healing item
@96
//すごいチーズ
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to cured cheese.
incredible cheese
@97
//めずらしいカビ
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to premium mould.
// WILL, jul22: "some rare mould" would fit if you think it would be safer.
// ALTJ, jul25: Added "some"
some rare mould
@98
//魔法のチーズ
// ALTJ, jul20: Appears to refer to chunky cheese.
magic cheese
@99

@100

@101

"ALTJ" most likely refers to translator Matt Alt. "MORGAN" refers to Morgan Rushton, localization editor. "WILL" likely refers to translator Will Blatchley.
