Thumbs down Where to start?

Hey guys, I'm a newbie.
I've done a bit of text editing with a hex editor before and I'm thinking of trying to start doing a few translations. I was just wondering if you could point me in the right direction on where to find some good tutorials?
I'd like to do NES and SNES but anything that helps I'd be thankful for.

I would encourage you to consider Gameboy translation, actually. Gameboy is, in general, easier to deal with than NES or SNES, plus there are a lot more untranslated games to choose from, so your final product has a better chance of being decent quality.

As for tutorials, I wrote one called The Definitive Guide to ROM Hacking for Complete Beginners that several people have told me was quite helpful. It's a bit outdated now, as far as which programs it recommends, but a lot of the information is still useful.

Darkzio, I been doing bits (Learning Japanese properly too, so I don't have to write it in romaji, translate it online, fix it so it makes sense etc), just pick up a Hex editor and use the debug stuff on some emulators. It's amazing how much you actually pick up by just getting to work.
