What about a forum in Spanish (Castellano) and Portuguese (Português) ? Thu, 26 February 2009 12:15
Well, I've been asking DoW people like Eric, Yann and Antoine about creating a forum (general about all games of DoW and particularly M44) with these two languages...
So spanish and portuguese locutors who are using english forum, show me your support by posting messages here...
I'm a fan of M44 but not only.
I think that's an interesting way to develop gaming especially in Portugal (I don't know how is the situation in Spain ; I've made a demonstration 2 years ago in the GenCon for people from Catalunya)...

Muy bueno amigo.

I think it helps to have a broad a spectrum as possible of both players and nationalities represented.

I know DOW will do what they CAN to make this happen. But I am certain they have a lot of irons in the fire already.

That's a great idea, IMO.
But unfortunately i think that's not a top priority for DOW.

MAS NO ENTANTO, CONTINUA A SER UMA BOA IDEIA. QUEM SABE SE NUM FUTURO PRÓXIMO A NOSSA LINGUA TEM O RECONHECIMENTO QUE MERECE.

Um Abraço a todos "falantes" da Lingua Portuguesa, e Espanhola tambem.

I think it's something that should definitely happen! I'm sure it would be far cheaper than bringing out a new expansion pack and anything that brings more players into the game has got to be good.

I'm not a native Spanish speaker but would happily volunteer, if volunteers are what is required to make this happen.

It might really have to be Spanish only (because of weight of numbers), rather than Spanish and Portuguese, though I've no doubt we'd understand each other.

For myself, I've proposed to be a moderator on this kind of forum because I speak both languages.
Written Spanish and Portuguese are very similar, so I think that people who writes in one language can understand the other (for myself, I understand very well written Galician and Mirandese)...
Like in an area based in borders of Uruguay, Argentina and Brasil, we can make our own "Portunol"...

I think we dont need a Portuguese/Spanish area . I understand that the people who know the game deeply speaks English , not Spanish neither Portuguese. Those guys would never enter in a Spanish section to reply a question...and the vice-versa. We would , eventually, stop to contribute in the others languages sections.

We already have a French/Deutsch Memoir 44 forum, which is a terrible thing 'cos I cant read many useful posts from French/German players.

The Internet language is English. Everyone should stick with it as much as possible. No matter how proficient we are in this language. Lets chat only in English !

DoW shut down the French forum !!!! And Deutsch forum as well !!!
Razz

Não fiquem tristes com a minha opinião, amigos! Como Brasileiro, prefiro ver cenários sobre a F.E.B do que ficar restrito aos poucos tópicos que serão criados em Portugues e Espanhol.

Sorry for english locutors, this post is especially created for labalbi (I don't have rights to PM) :
Senhor labalbi, eu gosto muito de reir também (desculpa pelos erros porqué Português nao é a minha lingua Mae mais lingua Pai...)
Claro que o Inglés é a lingua do Internet, pero vale melhor ter um forum nas outras linguas ; isso permite de ter mais jogadores...
Eu tenho costume de visitar o forum francês porqué sou francês e aquela lingua é a que tenho habito de practicar ; Gosta-me também o forum inglés que me permitiu encontrar nova gente e conversar por exemplo com Longbearder que é da Russia...
Inglés é a "lingua franca" nada mais ; nao volta a ser colonizado, Sr Lalalbi ! Nao tem vergonha da tua lingua ! O senao compra ja um bilhete para ter os EUA !
Também podem fazer-se os escenarios nas duas linguas...

Não tenho vergonha da minha língua. De forma alguma. Franceses...sempre às turras com os ingleses. Não admitem o inglês como a lingua universal da internet.
Não admitem nem que os enlatados da França tenham rótulo em inglês !!!

Não, não quero me mudar para aos EUA.Tenha dó. É uma burrice sem tamanho defender um fórum com seções para cada língua. Vai segmentar demais. Não percebe isso ? Já perdemos info demais em francês e em alemão ! Agora também em espanhol ou portugues ou portunhol ?

Olha, fiquei ofendido com a história de ser colonizado , hein ? Peça desculpas...

Ora bém, ja que Portugal desde ha muito tempo, fui colonizado pelos Ingleses (desde o seculo XIV), nosotros queremos guardar a nossa lingua e communicar com gente francofona no mundo inteiro (Québec, Belgica, Suiça, etc...).
De tal maneira, posso consultar os forums em Francês e Inglês...
E certamente interessante de ter uma "centralizaçao" dos dados pero toda gente nao fala o comprende Inglês ; por isso é que precisa-se ter forums em varias linguas para desenvolver os jogos...
E cada um a sua volta de ser colonizado (agora a colonizaçao é causada pela potencia norteamericana e o mondialismo) ; ja que temos aproximativamente o modo de vida norteamericano, nao precisamos de ter a lingua deles tambem p'ra tudo no Internet.
Sabias que queriam fazer uma lei em Portugal para adoptar a maneira ortografica de Brasil, para reforçar a presença lusofona na ONU ?
Para desculpas, talvez nao es colonizado seja colonizador ? Razz

If I was the moderator I would lock this thread and thank the users for staying on the game, not venturing into politics.

Sure SirKirby ! I agree with you...
My only wish is to have a forum dedicated to M44 in spanish and portuguese to develop the game and to get people to make translations of rules and cards like Giuseppe Ferrara did for italian locutors.
Sorry if I have bored someone with my sterile discussion with labalbi...

IMHO, i don't think that another forum in Portuguese or Spanish, would be a problem to the game.
I have no problems with english, although sometimes i can't understand some expressions, or sometimes writing posts here, i confess, i have a hard time finding the right words to espress what i really intend to.

What i really liked to see, was not only a Portuguese forum, but the game edited in Portuguese too.
In Spanish i think that there's already a spanish company that translated the game. But in Portuguese, that would be difficult, althoug there are more than 200 000 000 people speaking Portuguese.
That, i think it would help sell the game, not only in Portugal, but also, and speacilly in Brasil. But, this won't happen, because of market reasons i guess.
Not a good business for DOW, and Portuguese companies, don't care (they buy the game to some distributors and sell it at a very high price).

One thing i can say to support this, is that, i prefer to order games from a Spanish company than here in Portugal.
I already bought one game in spanish (Agricola), and i'm quite happy i made that decision, and in the future i will buy more games in spanish, if available.
Not only because makes it easier to me and to the people who play with me, but also to support these spanish companies that do a great job, promoting their language and the games they sell (and at a fair price).

All this, may not seem to have anything to do with Memoir, and DOW, but it has, because, here are some reasons, why, this and other games, don't sell as much as DOW and others, probably Wanted.

I'm not sure, but I think that in fact it's just a translation of the rules that exists in Spanish -- and that all the other components are in English.

Can someone confirm that?

I can't confirm you that, in Memoir, but many other games are.
Like i said before, and only as an example, Agricola, Arkham Horror .... and these are two games with high level of language dependence. And a great effort on translation. So, i believe they did the same on memoir. After all, it's just some cards (few text in each), and the rules.
