Translation errors
Further notes

Below is a list of various translation errors and deliberate alterations made by the Localization team working on Resident Evil Zero.

Script

The Queen Leech/James Marcus speech at the end of the game was altered. In the original script, he proclaims that the world shall "burn in the fires of hell" as part of his vengeance on Umbrella. In the localization, he instead proclaims it to "burn in an inferno of hate".[excerpt 1] This was likely deliberate to avoid offending Christian fundamentalists in the West. In the same speech, he states that it took "many years" for the Queen Leech/Marcus fusion to be complete. It was instead changed to the more-specific "ten years".[excerpt 2] In addition, during the Delta Team cutscene, the localization had Birkin directly mention the Ecliptic Express when expressing confusion on the spread of the t-Virus, when in the original script, it was implied he had been referring to the train the whole time.

File

The file, Marcus' Diary 1 was altered in its September 19 entry, departing noticeably. Whereas the original text described Marcus' thoughts on developing new viral strains through the Progenitor Virus, with the t-Virus serving as a successful example of an improved mutation to Progenitor, the translation simply announces his successful development of the t-Virus, adding in that the "t" stands for "Tyrant", a fact that did not appear in the original text (though was confirmed elsewhere). Marcus confirms having used leech DNA in his virus development in both.

There was confusion over the list of inmates in the Inmates List. S. Clarke became "A. Clarke".
