Hello everybody,

after a few sessions with a mate of mine, who is not too familiar with English, we got tired of having him to shuffle around the, undoubtely helpful, printed out playing aids lining out the cards' text translations.

So I decided to code a little iPhone app containing all the cards and their translations in German. Since it proved to make playing TS much more enjoyable for him, I decided to ask Ananda Gupta and GMT if they have any problems with me publishing it on the App Store. They hadn't. Thanks again for that. thumbsup

The app really does nothing more. It is plain and simple, it does not provide any strategy tips or anything, not to mention an iPhone version of TS itself, although I wouldn't mind seeing that, especially on the iPad cool

I left the original card headlines in their English versions for easier recognition, only the "details" of every card are translated to German.

But it's free, and it might save some players the hassle of having to consult several sheets of paper to work through the cards they have on their hands.

So, if anybody is interested in a little tool like that, feel free to download it and leave comments. Since the cards' texts are in one single text file, I could send that file to anybody who needs a different language translation and then integrate his translation into a later version of the app.

You can find the app at: http://itunes.apple.com/de/app/ts-player-aid/id564193441?uo=...

Enjoy

Marcus

Help is appreciated for any language anybody is interested in.

Since there is a Spanish translation available in the Files section, it would be nice if I could send you the English text file (currently in the making), so you can insert the Spanish texts into the appropriate positions and send it back to me. Plus, I would need a translation of the "Notes" section (3 sentences).

Same applies to any other language, although I have no experience (yet) with non latin character sets (I know it's all Unicode, but there might be more issues with formatting et al).

I'll get back to you. Thanks for the offer!

Regards

Marcus
