Hi Im thinking of buying one of your games - but I might have a bit of a problem...
Not all of my guests understand english that well, so is it ok if I translate the game before playing it ?

That would be a HUGE chore. Our last translation took 3 months to do. You not only have all the materials (over 200 pages), but you have graphics that are designed, such as Evidence, flyers etc... What language are you looking at?

I guess you could do that. Someone would have to read them the evidence, as that would not really be possible. I could send you a blank background and Confidential in Microsoft Word format and then you can translate the booklet. Then just translate each characters background, which is one page and paste it into the background. It won't be in booklet format like everyone else's, as it is a lot of work to turn these word files into pdf booklets, but it will work.

After you make the purchase, contact me by email and we will get you taken care of!
