Hello everyone!

My name is Andreas Propst. I am a young amateur artist and game designer from Austria. My fantasy LCG-style game Elemental Clash: The Basic Set will be published in the US through Heroic Journey Publishing within the first quarter of this year.

As we are planning on selling the game in the form of downloadable pdfs, besides the printed cards (only available in English for the time being) i want to provide them in as many languages as possible.

So I am now looking for people who speak English and Spanish, Portuguese, French, Russian, Chinese, Japanes or even Latin (or any other language). So if anyone is bilingual and would be interested to be involved in the making of a new game (or if you know somebody who could be), please contact me through this forum or write to andreas.propst31@gmail.com.

You would have to translate the rulebook (15 A5 pages with lots of pictures) as well as the 60 basic set cards. As a reward for your services I could either offer a signed copy of the finished game or a small sum of money. That can be negotiated...

Thanks in advance and many cheers,

Andi

EDIT: I alresdy have someone who will translate it to Italian. And German I can do myself

Hi Andreas,
I could only offer a translation from Austria to German...

Good luck with your game, please tell us your experience with selling a game via downloads, I have no experience about this possibility and it's sure interesting for some geeks and new game designer.
Thanks in advance.

I could probably help you for the french translation but I'm quite busy right now so shouldn't be able to get around to do it before 1 or 2 weeks at the very least...

If you don't find someone else for the french translation, I'll do it when I have time (which will probably be in on month or so...)

Hi Andreas,

I can translate in Greek if you are interested. It's not on your list of languages you mentioned, but I thought the more the merrier.

I would be happy to help...

No offense intended but is that Dutch/Dutch or Belgian/Dutch?
Yes, there is a difference. Seriously...


I'll be the back up, back ups back up... for English and Dutch.
I could even do German if you find yourself at a loss for words

Thanks for all who posted so far!!

Just to inform you: I have already people who will translate the game to French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Hungarian, Greek and Turkish. English already exists and the german version i made today.

Still looking for Russian/Chinese/Japanese or maybe even Latin
(The last is more of a fun thing, but i'd be really cool)

Cheers,

Andi

I can also translate to smurf, if needed:

- I smurf my smurf into play.
- What? You can't smurf while I've got two smurfs in my smurf!
- Smurf of a bitch!

Heya Sagitar,
None taken. I can do both, obviously
Belgian/Dutch is referred to as "Vlaams" btw so Dutch is just ...Dutch.
