Translation Help - Tales of Destiny: Director's Cut

Hi there! I’ve been (very slowly) working on a rough translation of Tales of Destiny: Director’s Cut (the PS2 remake released in 2008) as I play through the game with a friend. I figured since I’d already be translating the game for him, I could write it down as I go. However, I’m far from fluent and having a rough time with a line I came across, and I’m hoping I can get some help ^^

Right now, I’m meeting the King of Seinegald, and his advisor(?) Dryden is yelling at my party for committing crimes—typical hero stuff. The full context of the scene is:

Stahn: Whoa, how fancy! Is this the Seinegald castle?
Rutee: You’re pretty happy-go-lucky, aren’t you…
Dryden: You are in the presence of his majesty the king! All of you, control yourselves!
(a soldier brings the king the swordians)
Rutee: ah, Atwight!
Stahn: Dymlos, are you all right?
Dryden: 貴様たちがなぜこの場に、引き立てられたかわかるか?
Rutee: hey, give Atwight back! she’s mine!
Dyden: Silence!
Dryden: That you attempted to ravage the king’s ruins, and that you caused a scene over it in town, is inexcusable.
Dryden: We have prepared a punishment severe enough for your crime!

I’m confused about Dryden’s line here because I understand the 貴様たちがなぜこの場に and the わかるか, but I’m having a frustrating amount of trouble over 引き立てられたか. The only definitions I can find for 引き立つ are “to stand out” or “to be conspicuous” and I’m having a hard time understanding how that kind of meaning fits within the context of both the sentence itself and the scene as a whole.

I want to say that the sentence boils down to something along the lines of “Do you know why you’ve been summoned here?” but I don’t want to slap that translation down and have it potentially be inaccurate. So if anyone here can help with understanding this, I’d really appreciate it!

It’s not 引き立つ, it’s 引き立てる. I’d be inclined to say that it’s definition 4.


Thank you for pointing that out!! I didn’t even notice that I was reading it wrong orz



@ciellenne Are you still working on this translation?
We actually have a group on Discord to translate this game in english and would like to have some people to help us translate this game :slight_smile:

I am! I’m currently about 1/4 through Stahn’s side. I’m totally willing to join if you’ll have me!
