ArenaNet is excited to announce the confirmed language list for the localization of Guild Wars 2. As you may already know, the game will include full localization of both voice and text into German and French. Today, we’re happy to announce that we will also feature Spanish text localization for Guild Wars 2 at launch.

Anet is also looking for..

I don't really care about the Spanish localization, but dat helmet/armor is sexy.

Yet another low-res screenshot though.

Grats Spanish community! (I guess?)

Hmm, why are they looking for a Spanish localization editor if they already announced the Spanish localization? Or they haven't started yet and are just announcing it? That would be weird.

Oh, I'm very happy to hear that they will only subtitle the game in spanish, not dubbing it. I prefer the original english voices. It's also a real shame that I'm still studying Advertising & PR... if not I would try to catch that Community Manager job ): Damn.

This is good news, even if they haven't started localization and it takes a little longer for release, if only because (hopefully) this will broaden the player base.

As for the armor, I'm certain it's heavy armor.  Doesn't have the feeling that the other adventurer armors have.  Namely, there seems to be very little leather.  It's mostly metal and cloth.

I'm quite confident localizations can be added post-launch with patches, so not worried too much for the release.


Expecially if involves only text and subtitles sync

That wouldn't be so weird. Localization editor probably means transcribing localization files (text) from english to spanish which does not take an awful long time if you put some people full-time on that.

Game text will be translated into Spanish for our large and diverse player community in Spanish-speaking countries.

The keyword there is "will be".

Yeah, weird. Isn't ArenaNet the company that only announces stuff, that is already in the game? :p

right, why bother translating stuff that isn't final in the game?
