  • Overview & How to translate

    • Please use the English templates Area in the Origin Localized Forum to have an overview of all the available english templates ready for translations. We collect and store all original versions. It's much easier to check and update them here than in all national boards.
    • Every user can translate now, but please read the following instructions carefully to keep uniformity.
    • All content is free!
      - Everything written on the Origin Board is open to everyone worldwide! Results of this international cooperation are translated into all languages that GameForge provides and are available to the communities, so YOU are allowed to hand them down to your community.
      - Feel free to copy and paste it or link it at your national board! If you need help to post it correctly in your board, you should simply ask your national mods for help.
