The official logo for the fan group.

Absolute Zero Translations was a translation fan group that created unofficial patches for unlocalized games in the Tales series.


Absolute Zero began in August 2006 and was originally a personal blog of user throughhim413. One of its first goals was a text translation for the PlayStation version of Tales of Phantasia. This particular project was the effort of a Japanese-language student who sought to expand his horizons, and it was completed in April 2007. Later that year, work began on an unofficial patch for the game, which became the fan group's first release and was released on December 25, 2007.

Several months later, Absolute Zero teamed with Phantasian Productions in working on Tales of Destiny: Director's Cut. The following year, a translation of Tales of Innocence was proposed, and it was released on June 29, 2010. Tales of the Tempest was also translated and followed on April 1, 2013. As of 2014, the group is involved in three ongoing projects: Tales of Phantasia: Cross Edition, Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon X, and Tales of Destiny: Director's Cut. The group also has a Tales of Hearts project with Kajitani-Eizan on hold.

In an effort to support the official releases for the series, Absolute Zero ceased their in-progress projects and removed the links to their fan translations from their website in early 2018. Their website was eventually taken down later in 2018 and was replaced with a link to their official Discord server.
