Translation status update (German, Dutch)

Hello Fan translators,

Thank you so much for volunteering your time over the last few months.

We have some news: We were approached by a translation company and given a very generous offer for work on the German and Dutch localisation. After much discussion, we have decided to take them up on their offer. This will allow us to release the German and Dutch
versions at the beginning of December.

This means we will be stopping the German and Dutch fan-translation tracks. We do this with some hesistation, as we know how much time and effort you have been putting into them, but this agreement means we can get the game to German and Dutch-speaking players faster than would
otherwise be possible.

We still want to acknowledge all of the effort put in by our German and Dutch fan-translators: translation was not even on the table for us until you guys stepped up, and German was one of the most-requested languages. You guys will still be listed on the fan translator page of
our credits in the new version of the game (more information about this is forthcoming).

Just to be clear, this deal is only for German and Dutch. Right now we have no plans or budget to do formal localisation for any other languages. It's unlikely that will change any time soon.

Once again, we'd like to thank *all* of our fan translators: your enthusiasm for Fate of the World has been really inspiring to the team, and we're thrilled to have so many passionate fans.

Take care,

Fate of the World Team

That's really cool!
The game looks awesome, but I didn't effort it, because you have to read very much.

Now I will spend some Euros :-)

Are the DLCs included in translation? Or only step by step?
