In the last week, we've had a lot of questions about translating Unfair into languages other than English, which makes me giddy with delight - I just love that Unfair appeals to so many people!

So the big question is: if we are able to undertake translations, which language or languages would be most useful to Unfair players? Let us know below and we'll be able to present this to publishers to help make the case for regionalisation!

If there's a language that isn't in the list below that you feel should be considered, tell us in the comments below.

Poll
What language/s (other than English) would you like to see Unfair available in?
Cantonese
Dutch
French
German
Italian
Japanese
Klingon
Korean
Mandarin
Polish
Portuguese
Russian
Spanish

As an fyi, Congress is Chinese. The dialects are spoken, so really it should just say choose and those selections should be added together.

Hey Josh,

Thanks for this. I had thought, based on some work with a client whose website provided translations in simplified and traditional Chinese, that they were sufficiently different, but I just learned something new, so thanks for that!

Unfortunately BGG's polling tool doesn't allow you to make changes once it's live so I can't change it now. I'll know for next time though

Two ravens sit on Odin’s shoulders after flying around the world each morning and whisper all the news which they see and hear into his ear; they are called Huginn and Muninn.

From the look of the results it really should be User Pole: Language Translations

Good Games Publishing is in discussions with a number of publishers who specialise in language localisation of board games. You can rest assured Unfair will be found in many key game languages and hopefully some of the less often seen languages too.

Sorry Tim no they wont.

Its a big game with a lot of text that needs to be done properly with localization partners.

But we will have a German language how to play preview arrive sometime during the campaign.

Hi Martin!
Unfortunately I can't alter the options in the poll once it's published, but I will definitely make sure Czech is on the list for translation (pretty sure it is, but I'll double-check
