Print on Demand English only?

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

is the POD line supposed to be English only or are there plans to eventually provide POD Expansions in other languages (German)?

Would be interested in a general answer or one specific to certain games (Mansion or Death Angel).

 

Thx

AFAIK, the German Publisher (Heidelberger Spieleverlag) has different plans: They want to release the POD expansions exactly like 'normal' expansions. The specifics were not yet decided when I last checked (I no longer visit their forum because I got fed up with their overeager mods).

Not so sure this might help, but anyway... here in Italy POD expansions could see the light as well. For now, it was said "just start demanding. If enough people demand, then...". Not an official clear position, but not a refuse, either.

Anyway, Mansions seems to be a game of major interest for the boardgaming community, so I think it's possible to have even the POD expansions translated in other languages. Just my opinion, of course

 I think FFG will look at it from an expense perspective.  The whole purpose of POD was to provide regular content expansions to the game that would not otherwise be economically feasible for FFG to do.  If translations fit into that, then they will do them, but I think with foreign-language versions, it will likely come down to demand-- so contact FFG and demand translations, so they know they'll be able to make money on it!
