About a fat lady I think. That's what I remember. :wink:


Doesn't ring a bell...
But maybe I messed up my translation so bad that I made you think it was about a lady :wink:

Is this forum doomed so that we will never ever be able to take a BTG to its very end anymore?

Serafín had the text for more than 2 months now, and where is Covered? Who is Covered at all?

It used to go quite fast, didn't it? I even got a reminder once when I dared to wait two days to translate :shock:

What if we'd ask Dminor to translate the text in Dutch and Aleco to translate Dutch- Norwegian in the second team, to avoid Covered? Maybe Aleco is even able to translate from Frisian if he feels confident enough...?

I'm not so sure how we can re-arrange the first team to make it work, does anyone have an idea, or am I the only one who still hopes to finish it?

I know, so first I thought: you could translate from English, but that wouldn't be so nice for Belaur, would it?

Add a new participant: GoogleTranslate. :P

Or try bugging RenaSerafín again, it's not like he isn't active on the forum or something.. maybe he just forgot.

I could translate from Frisian too if necessary but I actually liked having Spanish for once..

OK guys, I PMd Serafín and got a response but nothing happened ever since.

If you guys are OK with that I'll use Google Translate as Muisje said. It's sad because it won't make the least of sense :(

It's ok with me, otherwise we're never gonna progress. :)

Maybe you can cover for Covered. I was the last of team 2 to translate the text (which, by the way, happened to be exactly at the summer solstice... next week it'll be autumn), so the text is now in Italian, and I could send it to you. Aleco can translate from Dutch, even though he didn't state that for this game, but I'm sure he'll yield given the situation. ;)

:hmm: Shall I simply proceed in yon fashion lest the game remain stuck?

Sorry, ik had even zin om absurd Engels te gebruiken. :notme: Ik vroeg me af of ik mijn plan maar gewoon moest uitvoeren, anders komt het spel nooit vooruit...

O. Ja, doe maar. Anything that would progress this game sounds fine to me.

I just wrote a PM to Balaur and Ayiaearel to see if I can get the Mandarin text.
