Tactics Guide in English? Fri, 17 February 2012 13:11
Anyone have an idea or rumour as to when this will happen?

I've been checking up on this every week since the French version became available... and I'm starting to despair...

Right now I'm considering buying the damned thing in French just to see how far I can get using my highschool-french-that-has-never-been-used-in-twenty-five-ye ars...

Don't dispair...translating such a huge project is bound to take time! But if you can't wait, you can always buy the French version. Smile

My wife is fluent in French, I'm sure she'll enjoy the guide immensely...well, maybe not. Laughing

Some good lite reading?! Very Happy Rolling Eyes

Back when the book was first released, DoW asked for anybody who spoke both English and French at a high level. I assume someone stepped forward to help translate, but we haven't heard anything new about that...so I would bet someone is working away at the book. Eventually they'll get it all translated, but it might be a while. Smile

I'm sure my wife can do it for anyone with payment being made in the form of an Air Pack. Razz

For some of us, that's not an option. Unfortunately, unless something has chaned recently, it's not available in the American store.

It's now May and we still have a deathly silence on this subject Crying or Very Sad

Would it be possible for The wonderful staff at DOW to at least give us hint as to wether or not an english version is been worked on, or considered, or is it just wishful thinking on the Part of the "Non French" speaking members of the community! Confused

Based on previous comments i am sure their is a reasonable demand for this. I'll want at least 2 copies, (My eldest daughter will be having one as a birthday/christmas present as she definitely needs it! Embarassed)

A reply from those in the know would be most welcome Cool

Just think of the wonderful sense of achievment you will experience in providing the book that finally helped my daughter escape from the clutches of complete ineptitude!

(PS I Hope she doesn't read this, and if she does "I was just joking, honest!!)

When DoW first released this book in French, they asked for any help with someone who might be able to help with the MAMOTH task of translating it. I have no idea if any brave soul stepped forward, but either way it could not be easy to translate such a tome!

Since DoW said they want to translate it, and since a huge part of the DoW customer base is English-speaking, I think we can rest assured that eventually we will see this book in a language that will help your daughter! Smile

Even though it's taking a while, I still have confidence that it will happen eventually. Cool

Hey folks,

I know a translate bureau who could translate the book but it will cost some money.

Maybe DOW could take a look on the following site

http://www.seo-copywriting-evina.be/

We never know if DOW could ask for an offer.

Too bad I didn't know that at the time or I WOULD have stepped up

I will raise my hand if the Spanish version is an option ever.

Looks like this post now gathered some dust over the last few months. I'm wondering has there been any update on the English version of the guide in the meanwhile?

There has been no update on this project, but they have said that they hope to put out an English version at some point. Since we haven't heard anything, we can safely assume it's still being worked on. Smile
