    Ik hou zelf niet van nederlandse games maar het zou niet verkeerd zijn!
    I do not like dutch games but this Would not be wrong!

    Mean reason

    Holland is to ```small`` so they wont sell to much.

    Why would they want to do that? Not enough people would buy it for Nintendo to translate the whole game which is a LOT of work.

    Besides, I'm guessing you're just too lazy to learn some proper English?

    Yes there are. And they're managing fine right now, aren't they? Maybe there will be a Dutch version in 10 years when 1-click-translating is possible, but not anytime soon.

    It takes a lot of work, but as proven with Professor Layton (Pandora's Box), it is possible.
    Then again, as Brawler said, the Dutch market is too small for so much work to be put in it (and of course I would guess you yourself would just pirate it.)

    Gewoon zonde van de tijd is het denk ik, draaien ze verlies mee. En Engels heb ik geleerd door Pokémon spellen, haha. Dus zelf vind ik het niet zo erg. [​IMG]

    I think they don't make enough profit if they did. It's a waste of time for Nintendo I bet. And i learned English through Pokémon games, haha. [​IMG] So I don't mind Pokémon games aren't in Dutch. [​IMG]

    I am working at a Dutch translation for HG.
    I translated the intro, some menu's, most of New Bark Town, battles (not complete yet), and some other things.
    But it contains some bugs.

    Ik ben bezig met een Nederlandse vertaling voor HG.
    Ik heb de intro vertaald, wat menu's, het meeste van New Bark Town, gevechten (nog niet voltooid), en wat andere dingen.
    Maar het bevat wel wat bugs.

    ik zou hem niet vertalen hoor, kijk maar naar de nederlandse versie van Drawn to life: the next chapter, die zuigt ook
    I wouldn't do it to be honest, look at the dutch translations that were used in Drawn to life: the next chapter, those suck too
    You're just taking the awesome english-ness of the game, trust me, if you translate it, everyone will be saying it was a waste of time afterwards

    Ja, ik weet het, maar het is meer bedoeld voor kinderen die geen Engels kunnen,
    en die bijvoorbeeld niet verder kunnen met het spel.
    En ik doe het toch maar voor tussendoor als ik niets te doen heb,
    dus alleen voor degenen die intresse hebben zou ik hem uitgeven. [​IMG]

    Yes, I know, but it's only created for children who cannot speak English,
    and who can't continue to the story.
    And it's only if I have nothing to do,
    so only I will release it for those who are intresed in it. [​IMG]

    I DONT CARE
    Ik zou ook wel helpen want ik kan engels, en nederlands.
    Ik zou het echter niet spelen want ik ben toch meer van de engels pokemon.
    maar ik zou zegge eerst effe wachten tot dat er een ap fix komt.

    I would help because i can speak english , and dutch.
    but i would not play it because i like english pokemon more.
    but first we have to wait till there is a ap fix

    Because most Dutch people like speaking in Dutch, but they don't want to make it so that nobody non-Dutch can understand their posts. Just forget the Dutch part, I'd say. :\

    As for the topic, we really shouldn't allow game developers to translate everything to Dutch, since the English-language media is one of the things that causes the average English knowledge of Dutch people to be higher than - for instance - Germans.

    And anyway, community translations really do suck, doesn't matter if it's a TV show, a movie or a game, the d/t mistakes and incorrectly placed spaces between words (come on, Dutch is not English) are all over those translations. And even more so, they sound annoying too.

    Posting in a post in a different language is also against the rules [​IMG]
    But lets not tell them that

    Well, the fact that they're even on this forum means they're able to understand English fine. So there's not really the need to speak Dutch :/.

    But we're getting off-topic here, so I'll let this be.
