I think that's what every translation after the glorious original does.

Shit, that reminds me of this infamous "All according to keikaku"-style "authentic" fan translation of FF6, except in reverse.
Is that the one that made Terra into "Tina"?
It's her original Japanese name, baka-gaijin! Ted Woolsey changed it because her name should sound foreign due to her background he was a LOSER!

I think all they did was change "SwdTech" to "Bushido", which is the original name of Cyan's special ability. Unless I'm thinking about the wrong translation. I mean, whatever translations touches upon the "son of a submariner!" line is wrong and should be ignored.

PS1 was just poorly edited, so it got kind of engrish at times. PSP has this flowery ye olde english added to it because muh medevul yurope. Also from what i heard, the slowdown was intentionally programed the PSP port, so i bet they'd try to find some way to add that feature into the PC port.
If the slowdown was intentionally programmed into the PSP port, you can bet your ass that removing it would be additional work. Can't have that. Just emulate and go!

This. The ps1 translation is a literal translation with engrish-y mistakes. Perfectly acceptable imo. The PSP version inserted fake old english (it is neither old, nor proper english btw) into the game and purple prose'd it to fuck. It's a nightmare.

They'd just do a shitty port of the PSP port.
You know they would, too. The PSP version fucking sucks ass. Terrible new translation, added slowdown and added loading times.
I thought Piss1's translation was supposed to be the shit one.
