Übersetzung hat begonnen! [Translation has Begun!]

Hey!  Welcome back!

Glad to see you here.  The holidays being what they were, we got only about four or five pages done.  Andre has his life and a job performing (what else?) translations of entire books, so we're kind of feeling our way along here.

Our editing team of Thomas Lagemann and Nadja from Germany have been busy too, but they took a look at what I produced and offered only minor changes.

Most of my trouble comes from having forgotten how to make InDesign 3.0 do the wonderful things it did for me back in late 2012.  I have to relearn it, with my Dummies book in one hand.

Here is a sample of one of the early pages...

Looks like the Draconis Combine will be ready to install around mid-January, as we all recover from the holidays and welcome the New Year!  Happy 2015, everyone!

Thank you for stopping by.

Hi guys, glad to see the TRO being translated into German, and - even better - to see the German translation being a decent one. How far are you into the process?

We will be installing the Draconis Combine sometime in the next week or so. It's slow work, wedged in between all the other duties our translator has in real life. But we'll get there!

This would be great.
Thanks for all from Germany.
