While we currently lack a functional english patch, that doesn't mean you have to be exposed to the dangers of untranslated chinese (lol). There are a couple ways to translate stuff in the game which are:
Google Translate APP
You can install Google translate on your phone, then use it to take pictures and it will recognize the chinese characters and translate it for you!
QTranslate allows you do to OCR(Optical Character Recognition) to identify the chinese characters and then use translation services to convert it to your preferred language.
After installation, there are you should configure the settings to your needs as preference, for example you probably want to set the OCR language to chinese. When you are done with the general setup, be sure to go to options>hotkeys and bind the text recognition hotkey.
This will allow you to recognize and translate chinese text when the currently active window is not in fullscreen.
The Achilles Heel of the software is it's OCR capacities, it will sometimes take multiple tries to get a correct read on text ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
