Narcista makes some good points about why some languages aren't economically viable.

Lupulus likewise has a good point that in many nations a fair reading knowledge of English is extremely common.

All of which makes me think the best solution may be to have English rule writers write in simple and clear English, as opposed to the convoluted grammar that's often the norm (i.e. WRG).

POLL DESCRIPTION

This poll specifically targets non-native-English speakers. Even though a lot of us are somewhat fluent in English, I feel that the lack of translations from English create some kind of bottleneck preventing those with lesser language skills from enjoying the hobby.

Main Question:

Would you wish to see more rules translated into your native language, and would you buy them to support them?
No
Why should I spend my money? It's up to players to master English if they wish to play.
Yes, absolutely
As long as I'm interested in the translated game, of course.
no opinion

Factor me out, this poll isn't about me.
