Spielbyweb's game engine is designed to support different languages, yet to my knowledge all of the games are currently only in english.

(and I do realize the irony of asking a poll question in english about what other languages people would like to see supported)

Spanish, please. The language was spoken by roughly 364 million people worldwide in the year 2000, making Spanish the most popular Romance language and the second to fifth most spoken language by number of native speakers. It is estimated that the combined total of native and non-native Spanish speakers is 400-500 million, probably making it the third most spoken language by total number of speakers.

What about an optional Vulcan or Borg? Given the tendency of Trekies being computer geniuses, maybe by offering this they would do the programming for you! Very Happy

There are a lot of Spanish-speaking people that at the moment participates in this site.

It seems that much more people would participate if they could understand the interface and the language.

I would not translate it all in multiple language (or you won't stop translating to 250 different languages).

I don't speak a word of German and 80% of the boardgames I play with are German ...

Another idea is to put a flag of the country next to the nickname ... so everyone can see if that player is american, brasilian, french or german ... and adress him in his mother tongue (if he can Wink )

Et pourquoi un belge ne parle pas allemain? Il y a quelques Belges d'origine Allemagne.
Toch? restantje tweede wereldoorlog in het Oosten.

Multilangual would be nice, the spanish spoken people are with huge quantities, really not a bad idea to translate to spanish too.

Or Chinese or Sanskriet, should look real nice Smile those languages.

Portuguese.

I know some brazilian players who play on SBW, and I guess they don't have problems with english. But if there was a portuguese translation of the games and the rules I guess we'd see more brazilian players around.

Ik spreek al Nederlands, Spaans, Engels en Frans Wink

But the question is not: would it be nice ? (because of course it would be!), but: would it be worth the work ... and I don't think so.

You can easily find most of the game rules in your mothertongue, so if it is only for a few words ...
