Hello there,
I am not sure what you require exactly, but I could help translating into German. Would you like to have the texts from the German version booklets or new translations?

For example, I could translate your "Common Elements" list or, if available, have a look what matching phrases were used in the German edition.

Common Elements / Gewöhnliche Ausdrücke
* High Adventure in a World of Magic / [my suggestion:] Spannende Abenteuer in einer magischen Welt
* Home, News, Contents, Forum, Gallery, Quests, Tiles, Links, Credits /Home [usually not translated], Neuigkeiten, Inhalt, Forum, Galerie, Questen, Zusätzliche Felder, Links [normally the English phrase is used], Danksagung
* Jump to Bottom / Nach unten
* Return to Top / Nach oben
* Expanding HeroQuest / HeroQuest Erweiterungen
* This HeroQuest Site is dedicated to: / Diese HeroQuest Seite ist
Ye Olde "Agin's Inn" / dem ehemaligen „Agin's Inn“ gewidmet [initial quotation marks are at the bottom line „XXX“ in Geman or use the French version: »XXX«]
HeroQuest is © 1989-2010 by Milton Bradley Company. / [usually no translation necessary]
* Best viewed with HeroQuest Fonts installed / Für beste Lesbarkeit empfehlen wir die Installation des HeroQuest-Zeichensatzes

Thanks SirDionysDobermann. I've applied the translations to the Deutsch Ye Olde Inn and taken your suggestions into account.

My pleasure, drathe!

In retrospect, I would suggest to change "Tiles" / >Zusätzliche Felder< once again, because "Felder" only includes floor lay-outs, whereas in the tile section there are also doors, furniture and even walls (e. g. in Mage of the Mirror). There is no single German word to cover all these things, but a rather clumsy expression could be more appropriate: Kartonteile (meaning literally "cardboard parts" or "cardboard pieces"; drop the "zusätzliche", meaning "additional" since there are tiles from the basic games as well, not only player add-ons), Sorry for that confusion!

What else do you need? I could provide more translations, but I am afraid it will take some time, depending on my work schedule.

Noted. I've made the changes to "Tiles". I will update the button later this evening.

As for what's next on the agenda, anything in the first post that is not marked as Translation Complete . Thanks again for the help.

*** Here comes another one: The Adventure Design Kit - is there a seperate link to the adventure design booklet, or should that remain untranslated?
>Bogen< is singular, >Bögen< is plural.***

HeroQuest
Abenteuer Design Set *or* Abenteuer selbst erschaffen!

*Buttons:*
Beschreibung
Questenbuch
Charakterbogen
Bogen mit Aufklebern

*Text / Description*

Morcar ist zufrieden. Deine Siege über die Helden des Kaisers sind ihm nicht verborgen geblieben, und nun erhältst Du Deine Belohnung. Fünf neue Verliese sollen errichtet werden, und Du, Feldherr des Chaos, darfst sie vorbereiten ...

Mit diesem Abenteuer Design Set kannst Du Deine eigenen Labyrinthe erschaffen, die unvorsichtigen Abenteurern zum Verhängnis werden. Bösartige Monster liegen hier auf der Lauer, und tödliche Fallen werden den Untergang der verwünschten Helden des Kaisers besiegeln.

Das Anleitungsheft gibt Dir nützliche Ratschläge, wie Du aufregende Abenteuer gestaltest, und die Bögen mit den Symbolen für Monster und Einrichtungsgegenstände geben Deinen Lageplänen den letzten Schliff.

Zuguterletzt bieten die neuen, größeren Charakterbögen den Heldenspielern mehr Platz, um darauf ihre Ausrüstung und die gefundenen Schätze zu notieren. Nun liegt es an Dir, dem Feldherrn, die neuen Verliese phantasievoll auszustatten. Das Schicksal der Helden liegt ganz in Deinen Händen.

* Inhalt
* 1 Anleitungsheft für eigene Abenteuer
* 4 Bögen mit selbstklebenden Abziehbildern *actually, they are only adhesive when printed onto adhesive paper sheets*
* 1 großer Block mit 80 Charakterbögen

I've been informed recently that in the German version, Ulag the Orc Warlord is titled as Feldherr, meaning Commander, or General. If you wish to stay consistent with the German versions of HeroQuest and its expansions, I'm fine with that, in fact I believe it would be best to remain as consistent as possible. As for other things, such as two possible descriptors (ie Stickerbogen *or* Bogen mit Aufklebern), go with which ever one you believe is best.

Very well, thanks for the answer - I looked that up, it is correct (Feldherr for warlord). Sorry I did not check that before, but I simply did not think of it.
I changed the translation accordingly.

As I am aware, the Adventure Design Kit never saw a German release, therefore I will leave the link to the English version until the time comes that someone decides to translate the book.

Hello drathe,

Sorry it took so long to call in once again - loads of work and some computer troubles. Anyway, I am quite eager to translate some more. I am still not sure, though, what needs to be done. Do you want the whole website to be translated into German, buttons and all (for example for visitors who only read and write in German)? Or do you need scans of the German booklets and game parts?

+++++++++++
Here are some more suggestions for translating some English words on another part of the website (I am simply working down my way your to-do-list) :

HeroQuest Cards to Compliment or Expand Milton Bradley's fantasy board game
>

HeroQuest Karten zur Vervollständigung oder Erweiterung des Fantasy Brettspieles von Milton Bradley


Character - Combat - Equipment - Monster - Potion - Skaven - Spells - Treasure - Other Cards - Images for Cards
>

Charakterbögen - Kampfkarten - Ausrüstung - Monster - Tränke - Skaven / Rattenmenschen - Zaubersprüche - Schätze - Andere Karten - Kartenbilder
