With Board Game Circus we are translating board games for the German market (among other useful services for board game publishers and designers).

Today I have been asked if I know translators for other target languages and the answer is "No, I don't!" — I want to get past this and meet other people, professionals or hobbyists, that translate board games (be it occasionally or in your own company).

The next time someone asks me "Do you know a translator for X?" I want to say "Yes, I do!" — If you feel the same raise your virtual voice and make a mark.

Please mark your contribution to this thread with either "I will be at SPIEL!" or "I won't be at SPIEL but you now know where to find me."

I'm a copyeditor /proofreader, with only one game translation under my belt, but I'm still definitely interested.
Keep us posted!

Ps: I'll be in Essen from Wednesday to Saturday late afternoon.

I did some translation for Artipia games (English - German) - some are official published, some are only semi-official on BGG.

I would like to meet fellow translators.

Ciao

Martin

Edit about attendance of SPIEL'16: I will be there as every year. Most likely half of he time at the Artipia booth.

Hi there

I did the translations for Day & Night, proofreading for a Cwali game once and I translated the rules for Mi Tierra: New Era.

(Aside from constantly translating from German to English as soon as I type anything here ...)

So, yeah, consider me interested!

Also:
I will be at SPIEL!



Kind regards,
Kai

I did a translation for a prototype only for Peer and can only translate Ger <-> Eng, which I assume you can to. If you do a separate meeting let me know when I see if I can make it In addition I know a German <-> Bulgarian translator, but do not know her workload, as well as English <-> Bulgarian translator that also translates the "Through the Wormhole" series.

Edit: "I will be at SPIEL!"

Great to see so many responses, thanks everyone. Maybe you can do me a favour and edit your contribution by adding one line: "I will be at SPIEL!" or "I won't be at SPIEL but you now know where to find me."

I was assuming everyone who is going to read this thread will attend the fair but that is probably not correct

Thanks for your replies wonderful geeks. So far I have counted 12 people attending SPIEL. I'd like to hear whether you prefer some sort of personal meeting (talking business and learning more about each other) or a quick group meeting. Or both.

Personal meeting: send PN, I am looking forward to that. Together we'll determine time and place for the meeting.

Group meeting: pick your favorite date(s)/time(s) on Doodle. Please use your BGG name/username, so we know it is you. Doodle link: http://doodle.com/poll/mcbhnh2eseruqfhc

I'm a retired (at 26, haha - switched to IT) professional translator, but for board games I'm always willing to make an exception. Used to do EN<->CZ and DE->CZ. Not sure I'll have time to meet though, as I'll be spending the majority of Essen helping out at the CGE booth.

Not a professional translator, but I have translated pieces from English to Dutch and Dutch to English. I'm a journalist by trade and have written articles in Dutch and English. In a previous life I have written work instructions - which is essentially what board game rules are.

I will be in Essen, Wednesday to Sunday. I will be demoing games some of that time, though.

I'm a professional English/Spanish to French technical translator and I've done a few projects in the boardgame field. You can find my biggest effort at jeux-icehouse (or through this geeklist: Icehouse games in French/Jeux Icehouse en français).

I won't be at Essen for the SPIEL, but please feel free to refer to me for any translation project.

Hi,

I'm a professional English -> Dutch translator with 20+ years of experience in video games (all major brands and platforms) and about 2 years of experience in board games (Pandemic, Flick 'Em Up etc,).

I'm at Spiel on Saturday only but I'd love to meet other people and share info. I also get asked sometimes if I know people and I do, but in the video games industry mostly not in board games so if you are planning to compile a list I'd be very interested.

Best,
Arthur

I do need to have the booth schedule first, before I can note when I do have time available. But I see you on an other meeting for sure

@Peat: For sure!

@those who doodled "I can't on any of these dates": feel free to suggest alternatives and I'll add them to the doodle.
