Hello Sherlock Fandom!
As many of you know, we have a team of translators who work very hard translating every bit of dialogue and instructions into MANY languages. From French to Chinese, Spanish to Japanese and everything in between. So to showcase some of the languages we translate, we will be posting (for the next few weeks) gifs of your favourite Sherlock characters saying their catchphrases/well known-quotes in different languages. Fan Phrase Friday, if you will ;) So if you want to be a translator apply through our tumblr (link below) we are especially in need Hebrew, Malaysian, Russian, Norwegian, Vietnamese and Finnish Translators. You will need to be able to read and write fluently in your language as well as English. We are currently only accepting people with university degrees in their language.
P.S. Kudos to Frida Haden who worked very hard on coordinating the translations and putting together all the gifs. You can check out her portfolio on http://fridahaden.se/

A ton of you have been asking many questions, so we decided update our FAQ! Go check it out and keep those questions coming :) (Note: some of the older FAQ have answers that are more complete so read those too). -AT
Yep! Go right ahead.
We are always accepting any new recruits (from artists to staff assistants and anywhere in between) that are dedicated and willing to help out. If we stop recruiting we will let you know :D
We use a program called Unity which has its own scripting language. Hope this helps :)
About twenty to thirty applications are received per day (sometimes more, sometimes less) :D Because of this it takes a while to answer and look through applications so please be patient with us :) We have received it and are looking through each one. Also because we get so many on a daily basis we can only accept and train so many per day/week
We’re working as fast as we can to work on every last detail and all our volunteers are stretching themselves to the limit. We can only assure you that we’ll be hosting beta tests *hopefully* soon and that you can check on our fanpages for updates on our progress! ^^
Thank you so much for your encouragement! *hugs*
All of us volunteers and you followers are all fans and, being fans, we can create the ultimate fandom! >:D Bwahahaha!
We’ll try our best to deliver the game as fast as we can and we can only have confidence you will all stay along with what we have planned. Our sweat, blood, and tears! *kiss*
A tip of the deerstalker hat to you followers,
