Black Desert is getting a Spanish localization

Remember when Black Desert wasn’t localized in English and every attempt to play it involved jumping through a lot of hoops in a language you didn’t speak? That’s still the situation for the game’s would-be Spanish-speaking fans, who have to sit and watch forlornly as other people enjoy playing the game. But now a localized Spanish version of the game has been announced, which means that Spanish-speaking people can get together with their friends and have a big party. (Does anyone know the Spanish words for “friends” or “party?”)

An exact date hasn’t yet been decided upon, but localization should be finished by the first half of 2018, and Spanish-speaking GMs will also be hired to assist customers who require it. It’s good news for native speakers and bilingual speakers who feel more comfortable with Spanish on a whole; they’ll still have to wait a little bit longer, but it’s better than waiting for something that may never come.

Oh boy, more Google Translate!

There’s still massive errors in the English version… How are they expecting to do the Spanish version right?

Latin America (and Spain) will love this game. ꜟFelicitaciones!

They already released for Latin America, presumably mostly localized for Brazil which I think means Portuguese language.

That said I imagine players in Spain for EU and or our neighbors over the border in Mexico can now have the game put into their language might be more natural for them :)

Well except for the Brazilians as this doesn’t help them any.

I wonder why Americans seem to find the Spanish language inherently funny. It’s quite common for americans to replace english words with their spanish equivalents and expect me to laugh.. Maybe it comes from Mexicans being physically different from Anglo-Saxons and racism.

Most people in America learn Spanish as a second language in school to varying degrees, so some Spanish vocabulary is simply used for emphasis. Also Mexican and Guatemalan Spanish is spoken much faster and more energetically (and generally with more body language) than American English, so when you want to emphasize or express things energetically you can through in a Spanish word, this may be used comically and is commonly done by many Latino comedians (which most Americans have seen a Latino comedian perform at one point or another). Spanish is part of the American landscape and culture (and has been for 500+ years) and we are free to use it as we see fit. Also almost half of Latinos are white with little difference in appearance with the majority of Americans.

So you’ve taken an observation, then taken an unrelated fact to prop up an absurd basis.

That’s just loco.

Americans?

Que? (Manuel from Fawlty Towers)

Perhaps it derives from Franglais – in the seventies, a column in Punch (R.I.P.) and then some books.

Just idly curious as to whether this will be a Spanish (Spain) or Spanish (Mexico/US) localization.

Reader
Mikka Hansen

Standard Spanish would be the most likely

Mexican most like as it has a much larger speaking population.

Party (as in a in game party) is a “grupo”, and in LatAm circles I ran in we referred to friends as Xixos (pronounces chee-chohs) which is a localism from southern Mexico but has been gaining popularity online. If you are an American looking to join Latin American groups, introducing yourself as a gringo/gringa (it’s not as derogative as you may believe) can help break the ice, because no one likes saying “estadounidense”.
Looking forward to seeing the jajaja in chat!

Estados Unidos? I’m getting the feeling you took a different foreign language in school. :) Duolingo is your friend :)

Amigos and Fiesta are the words you’re looking for.

Reader

Fiesta = Party (feast, festival)
Grupo = Party (group)

So Amigos and Grupo are the words.

Reader

OP means Fiesta.

So Amigos and Fiesta are the words.
