StarCraft® II

Please provide language packs

Posts: 412
Hi all, I'm new to the game and the forums.
I know this was probably asked before, but I wanted to request support for every language in every region.

I live in Argentina (Latin America Region), and I bought the game for the North America Region, because I just can't bear to play a game in a different language than English.

I know I will probably have latency issues, but it's a price I'm willing to pay to be able to experience the game in its original language.

If some sort of language packs were to be implemented in the future, effectively making every language available for every region, I will request a region swap (I know this may or may not be approved, and I also know this will wipe my stats) and play in my region, potentially solving the latency issues and being able to enjoy the game entirely (in my region, and in its original language).

Please consider implementing this, I know a lot of users would really appreciate it.

Thanks for reading.

I dunno if it'll happen, but I support the cause!

LA should have the ability to choose English.
Maybe it's a size thing, being that the additional content makes the game too huge?

I don't think it's a size thing, and as I said, I bought it for the NA region so I'm already playing it in English, but suffering from the latency I get for playing from waaay down in america (continent) :)

I'm also a programmer so I fail to see the problem in letting every client-language connect to any region... I don't even mind that you have to choose one and stick with it, I'd happily play in the LA region if I could get the game in English.

We can only hope

Yes, seriously, this seems to be such a no-brainer. People want to play in their native language regardless of their current physical location on the globe!

Me and my friends are like the oposite
I'm brazilian, and they screwed up pretty bad on our SC 2 version

Example: Overlord is translated to something like "Liege"
Creep is translated to something like "Goo"
It's just lame.
