Hi guys,

Since I'll be playing with players that do not totally understand English, I was happy to see that Riot did an excellent job of having translated rule book and dossiers and making them available to download on their website.

When looking at the other language tutorials / dossiers, I noticed that the cards were actually translated in the screenshots. I was wondering if a help sheet for the cards was available for other languages (or even in English) ? That would make my job a lot easier than having to describe all the cards one by one each time.

As anyone seen this somewhere ?

Thanks

Let me look into this. Are you thinking a translated Quick Start guide that breaks down all the cards?

A translated player aid with all the cards would be amazing.

You guys are awesome.

Im thinking a translated version of Rumbles Pro-Tips would be great. Maybe make the images of the cards a bit bit bigger. That as a downloadable .pdf and 90% of translation needs would be fullfilled.

I've uploaded 10 translated Quick Reference sheets to the Files section here on BGG for MvM. I'm assuming they'll be available as soon as an admin has time to approve them.

Let me know if these help. Also, I've said in the past that these languages are 90% complete. So feel free to bring up any translation issues you have with them and I'll make sure they're corrected before we (if we) mass print the game in your language.

Thanks, that was quick.

Are you open for suggestions on the translations or would that be too much f a hassle, given the amount of languages zou provide.

One example would be to just skip the "Vasallen" and leave it at minions in the german tranlation.

Minion already made its way into the Duden (our Oxford Dictionary) and Vasall does not really fit the meaning.

€dit: I just saw that you are open for suggestions...

No, I'd welcome this feedback. It may be best to compile it under the file discussion, though. The most efficient way to update these translations is to gather all of the feedback and have the guys make one final pass. When that final pass happens, it'd help to have it all gathered in one place - under the file makes the most sense.
