Hi guys,

I know that some of you are still waiting for an English version of the meta game. As I explained before, I cannot run it myself, but if someone is interested in organizing such an event, please let me know. I have now the feedback of two seasons of the game (beta and season 1) so I think an English version is feasible.

I know that Van Voort volunteered last time - anyone else would like to contribute?

Cheers Smug

Hi Antoine

As you probably noticed I joined the 2013 season of the Meta Game. My french is far from perfect but Artimon convinced me I should join. (Also offering help with translations if needed.)

I would be interested to help organize/organize an English version after I had that experience.



Who wants to translate?
Currently I am plowing my way through the rules, but I think it would be helpful if somebody with more knowledge than me of French could translate them into English. (Maybe one of our bilingual Belgian fighters?)

If we have a translation, we can start nitpicking through it to see if we have a right translation. Cool

Jeroen,

You are a gentleman and a scholar!! Unfortunately, most of us on this side of the "big pond" aren't fluent in anything more than English, some have that skill, but sadly the majority don't.

I have often used "Bing translator" to converse with my French speaking foes, I get by it seems, but think there is a difference between the spoken and written as far as translation goes.

Did copy and paste and translate rules about MAP and INCOME, seemed to do ok, that is always an idea and of course subject to what is written and any grammatical errors, if any.

Of course, we all know that reading and understanding the rules are 2 different things! Just a thought and might make it easier to translate as a whole.

As Wim mentioned, maybe I need to learn French, but I am an old dog and new tricks are difficult to learn!!

I'm a little bit rusty with french (I studied it for 10 years but now it's almost 5 years that I don't speak it), but if you need some help Jeronimon please ask.

Luca,

You too qualify for the G & S award much like Jeroen!!! And both darn good players!! Maybe speaking French plays a part in that!! Mmmm...

Well, sure the rest us "foreigners" look forward for the possibility of one day playing such an interesting concept.

Thanks for your offering your assistance, both of you.

Hi English spoken fellows,

I'm not enough English fluent to translate the rules but I may help the translation of the rules as I have practiced the Metajeu with the first edition and will do also the second one.

I think to be able to avoid some misunderstandings by the translators. And I'm sure some others French / Belgium guys may help too.

You can send translations out my way.
Send me a PM with the location of the rules and I'll get on it.
I'd just like to have a native english speaker check it afterwards for spelling and grammar.

@quit2,

Careful what you wish for, here they are!

It's rather a lot, but these are the rules after two seasons of fine tuning.


Looking forward to the translation. Cool


No hurry, I would not mind finishing the current season before taking on the task of organising an English version.

Gentlemen,

Good luck and success in possibly bringing it to us here, your efforts are greatly appreciated and Jeronimon, once you have experienced it in person it will bring it all in focus and see if it is indeed a possibility!!!

Thanks again!!
