Hi,

Morapiaf is a boardgame publisher in Portugal and Spain ( www.morapiaf.com). We are now going to publish a collection of games for children and are looking for someone to translate from English into Italian the rules of the first two games (one by Philippe des Pallières and another by Rudiger Dorn) in exchange for a copy of each game.

If you are interested could you please write to us at info@morapiaf.com?

Best regards,

Morapiaf

Morapiaf, there is a guild for Italian BGGers here:

You might get more responses if you post there as well.

Io non scrivo l'italiano abbastanza bene!

I think that if you want an accurate work and a good job you should hire a professional translator.
A sloppy translation for a copy of a game can lead to people not understaning it and so not liking the games, it happened many times already.

(I am NOT a professional translator)

Dear Andy,

Thank you for your comment. In fact, we agree with you. What we are doing is to start with a translation by a gamer (that is important as well) and then have the Italian be polished by a professional translator.

I'm a feder-allergic and I blame the Klingon for not having smashed the Federation in time to save us from Star Trek serials.

In case consider to start doing it with your web page.
