Malay would be a welcome addition to the family of languages Spellweaver supports :) Especially if you're willing to help us with reaching local game sites and media.

Thanks for your offer to help. We'll talk again next week!

Yes, jarcore, there will be a Spanish translation. We will make community translations for the languages we have people willing to help us, and for the rest of the languages, we'll use a localization company as permitted by our budget.

@ivko/any other friendly dev:
Do you happen to have some information about the amount of workload required ? (e.g., approx number of lines to be translated or an approcimation of the # of hours most probably needed to fully translate everything)
Also, any information about the time given to complete that workload ? (more like 1 week,1 month or even a couple of months ?)
Or what prerequisites are needed ? (some games need .dat-hacking or finding strings at the right places, others just simple txt-editing, so there is a significant difference in time needed to edit the files)

Hard to volunteer imho if you don't actually know if you'll sign up for 5-10h of work or for 50-100+ hours and don't know the timeframe in which you need to finish ...

I guess that the necessary number of hours mainly depends on your efficiency. xD Additionnally, if your native language is not the English, you have probably already translated the game into your language to some extent, so...

I can only hope that someone can add the italian language. I can't help because i am not good to traslate. I understand english but traslate is very hard for me. Looking for some italian players that are better than me...

Hi alex86,

We are currently talking to a local Italian translator. Are you willing to help us by checking our Italian translation for errors (because it will be translated by a non-native speaker, even if the person in question has a masters degree in Italian language)?

If so, please send me your email address via a PM, and I will send you the final translation when it's ready.

Hi, dear Devs:
I'm Sigarda, and we talked about this in April I think. I (and our players group) can help to translate to Chinese.
I'm the founder and CM of Chinese SW forum in Baidu Tieba. And I'm the CM of MMDOC forum for Chinese player too.
We translated a lot of MMDOC cards and already translated all SW cards to Chinese (Beta version). We shared the file in our chat group. So If needed, please contact me.
Cheers. :)

Polish speaker reporting. I might not have much experience with CCGs besides Hearthstone, but I play a lot of tabletop and non-collectible card games. Not particularly experienced at translating, but currently studying theoretical linguistics.
