You have been asking us to build Wordament in other languages and we are doing just that. We recently submitted v1.6 of Wordament to certification and it should show up in the Marketplace shortly. With this update we’ve localized Wordament so that users playing on Spanish, French and Italian phones will now see the user interface in their native language. All you have to do is set the phone’s language setting to Spanish, French or Italian and Wordament will display the newly translated text. Additionally we have made a minor rebrand to the Wordament you know and love. You’ll notice when you launch the new build that we have some subtext under the Wordament banner that reads “English Edition”.
English Edition means the puzzles are all English puzzles and you only can score words that are English. Yes, we know that’s not really what you have been asking for but in the near future we will be releasing Spanish, French and Italian Editions where the puzzles and dictionaries will be in these languages.
Localizing the user interface for English Edition is the first step in getting the other language editions in the marketplace. If you are a native speaker of any of the new languages you can help us by providing us feedback on the text we have chosen. Neither Black Snapper or I are bilingual so we’ve been doing our best to create accurate translations. We have no doubt made some translation errors and we would love to hear from any native speakers about how we could improve the user interface. Just drop us a note at wordament@live .com, preferably in English. 🙂 We are very excited about the upcoming releases and we hope you are too.
