Here is the topic - how to make this game a native language version without loosing too much of the 'view'. Here is my way of doing that.

1. What will you need?
Appropriate Software (I use Scribus
Printing on transparent foil at home or available in nearby
Transparent card sleeves to reuse (I used one of Ultra Pro products:
Most possibly - good dictionary (but not necessarily)

2. Easy way
Download the file:
Translate cards into your own language (version enclosed is in PL)
Print on transparent foil
Cut the cards and put into card sleeves of a size 67x92 mm or 2.5/8 x 3.5/8 with relevant original cards

3. Complicated way - Preparation
First - measure the size of transparent cards sleeves you have. Mine are 2.5/8 x 3.5/8 or 67mm x 92mm (and that is slightly too large). Your cards should be slightly smaller than that. Let's say - 1mm - 1.5mm from each edge. In my case - I assumed than, that I will recreate cards of size 64mm x 87.5mm.

4. Complicated way - First edit
Create new landscape document.
Create your first card. Put the box of size mentioned earlier (64 x 87.5mm). Than - on the exact place, where text is placed on the original box - put there your new text on the similar background. Than copy it over (usually table of 2x4 in A4 format) across the page.

5. Complicated way - Second edit
Translate all the cards and put into recently created tables. My recommendation is to join in the cards in to sets - to prepare the least number of pages and than - to print them once, twice etc. Example could be:

6. Complicated way - Finishing
You are almost done. Now you need to print those and put into cards sleeve along with the original card.

Simple? Well - it took me about 4-5 hours to complete it all. But the effect is quite fine.
