I hope they can manage it so FF XIV can release soon after.

Christ, that took 5 minutes to load on a cable connection. Smaller is better for interview stuff.

Anyways, the guys says he "hopes to narrow it down to 3 months". That's great that he hopes to do so, but the reality is that it usually takes longer to translate everything. I hope I'm wrong, but I'd bet on it being at least 6 months after Japan's release.

Well for starters, the game has been in localization for over 5 months at this point so the voice overs should be all but done. Once the final version is done (JP one, which im sure is done now since it takes 2-3 months for manufacturing of the discs and distribution of the product), they only have to iron out all final additions and bug catches for the NA release and than send it off for its own manufacturing. If they can finish the Xbox360 version and iron out all bugs in localization by the end of the year, 3 months away should not be a problem. In all honesty the 360 release will be the only thing that holds up the release candidate (and since that is confirmed to be up and running thanks to E3 showcase, I don't think that will be much a problem either) simply because they are so far into localization.

Ahhh, in all the past releases the localization had been done afterward. So, yeah, I suppose 3 months is at least possible.
