Hi,

I own the polish version of TM, and i've found one card which i am not sure whether it has an error in translation or some wrong icons.
Card name (my translation) is Heat Sinks or Heat Traps
It is 6 cost green card with Energy / Building type and -1 VP. It has following icons:
- 2 heat production (in red border)
+ 1 energy production
...but in description on that card it says: Reduce YOUR OWN heat producation by 2 (...)
There is as i understand inconsistency between icons and description, because red border allows to reduce opponent production.

Could someone with english version, look on their version of the card and post what are the original icons and description ?

Thanks in advance.

The English version of "Heat Trappers" say to reduce any heat production, so it looks like a mistranslation.

Yes.

Incidentally, the german version has the same mistranslation. Maybe the polish translator used the german version as a basis?

If so, you might like to check for more mistakes, in this thread we collected any mistakes we could find in the german version.

Thanks You.

p.s. I've checked other cards on the topic You mentioned, but i couldn't find more errors in polish release. It seems this is translator / editor mistake.

FYI: All current and coming translations derives from the English original. Fortunately, most people will still read the iconography correctly, even if the explanation text is badly translated.

Hopefully the few errors will be corrected in the next print...
