Hello everybody
I'm surprised to see that few people talk about the translation of the DLC.
As already talked in many posts price is expensive and we could expect DLC are language localized.
I'm a great fan of FFG games. But I'm very disappointed I bought a game with DLC offering in english only.

I would imagine that the publishers that produce localized versions of the game will be responsible for translating DLC to foreign languages, too. Translating and proofreading hundreds or thousands of text fragments will take some time, testing with the app some more. Also voice recording for the intro and epilogue will need some time.

Since afaik publishers abroad do not see one penny from the DLC profit, they will probably get around to translate DLC scenarios when they are done translating scenarios for expansions they can actually sell.

It seems translation depends on FFG sending of VO files. So publishers need these original files to translate to according language. No file, no translation. Maybe I'm a lonely player among English-speakers (you noticed ). But I would like to tell you, FFG, "bad job". If you (FFG) don't want to take care of your translated product, it's your choice (bad choice you understood) but tell us. I had bought this game in English to get it in full English language or maybe I hadn't bought it. GRRRRR
