Since 5 days have passed and I haven't received a word from either Remis or Michael, I'm going to remind them (and I'm going to keep doing that until I receive the translations :twisted: )

If either of them is not available, I volunteer to do their part.

Hurry up :wink:

Thanks, Saar, I'll have you in mind as a reserve :y:

Ok, since I haven't heard from neither Remis nor Michael, they're off the team. Saar will do the translation from French and Ashucky will move to the other team to do the translation from Spanish. I'm just waiting for Saar's confirmation so that I can send the texts.

I got the text and I'll try to translate it as soon as possible (a.k.a. in a few days). I hope that's ok, I'd like to do it sooner but I'm drowning in all the school work I have to do atm, and yes, I blame my procrastination for that ... :para:

Definitely. I'm comparing the final translation to the original, it's hilarious. The last paragraph has absolutely nothing to do with its original counterpart!

I was rather confused myself as each paragraph kind of told a story of its own lol.

I'm so sorry. I used Google Translate because otherwise the chain would have stood stuck there for ages. It was an emergency solution.

I don't think it's too big of a deal, once a text goes into Chinese in these games, it comes out totally screwed up whether translated by a human or machine. :P We certainly won't be disappointed this time. :mrgreen:

I finished the translation from Spanish to English. The translation probably isn't the best since my Spanish has got kinda rusty, and also probably because the whole text was weird (as I understood it, at least) :D
