The Danish language has been added with the help of Henrik Falk, who has an interesting site for Go resources in Danish, which you can find here:
https://godojo.dk/

Finally it is time for another COMPLETED translation of the project's book. This time in the Spanish language, and it is great to see another step in our goal of making Go content more accessible to new players, in their native language.
A lot of us tend to forget that the majority of the planet's inhabitants are not comfortable in reading (let alone studying) in foreign languages. So, every little thing that can get translated, even if it is just a Go book, brings us all closer to one another and we hope that you will find this new addition useful.

The completion of this undertaking took us a bit longer than expected, but it is now finally ready, mostly due to the great translating effort of my real life friend Thanasis-Ricardo, who I want to thank heartfully. :)

Please, if you spot any mistake or typo, let us know so that we can improve the Spanish edition.
Just like with the previous completed version (French) , the uploads are in three formats (greyscale, CMYK and compressed greyscale) and are accompanied by a full re-upload of the latest corrections of the English version. There is also a small addition to the website's frontpage text.

As always, you can download the chapters for free from the project's webpage https://www.gobook.eu/ and you are welcome to contribute in any way you can, especially if you want to help with the translation of the book in your own language. Just send me a message and we can get it started.

Be well and stay safe through these trying times. :)

This is great!

The Spanish translation of "knight", as in "knight's jump", should be "caballo" rather than "caballero".

I think it should be possible to compress the color version to a similar size to the compressed grayscale version while retaining an acceptable quality. That would be ideal for me. I really like the small size of the current compressed version, but the grayscale is a bit of a turn-off.

Thank you for letting me know :)
I checked it a bit online and it seems like caballo is the horse and caballero is the knight, but I do not speak Spanish, so I forwarded your suggestion to the translator and we will see what we can do. In Greek, for example, we call it "the horse's move", so maybe Spanish is the same and they use caballo, as well.

I actually compress it using a free online service. I do not know if it allows for such large files to be uploaded in order to be compressed. It takes me hours to upload the file in the server as it is (due to small bandwidth in my area), but I will look it up.

It has been a while since the last addition, but thanks to the awesome effort and attention to detail of Simone Romano, chapter 1 for Italian has been finally added and we are off to the races for the second chapter!

I apologise for the wide timeframes between updates, but am a bit delayed on my schedule due to excessive workload. However, soon to come:
Catalan - Chapter 1 and 2 (ready and typeset, needs proof-reading)
Russian - Chapter 5 ( I am in the middle of typesetting it)

As always you can download the chapters for free from the project’s webpage https://www.gobook.eu/
I hope that you will find it useful and if you want to help with the translation of the book in your own language, you are always welcome to contribute in any way you can.

Be well!

I finished typesetting all the content for Brazilian-Portuguese today and I am waiting for a few sentences that need fixing. After that all I need is to make the covers and it will be done, hopefully somewhere around next week.

While I am waiting, I thought I'd make this.

(here is a larger, readable, version. Forum rules say an image upload cannot exceed 800px: )
https://i.redd.it/fjtmwcbfroh91.png

Which, even though I say it myself, it is not bad for a project originating from a country without any Go tradition at all.
It is still amazing to me that people actually bothered to help so much with it (translating 192 pages is not an easy endeavor :salute: ), but here we are. :)

We are back with another FULL translation of the project's book. This time in Brazilian Portuguese, and with this a great milestone has been achieved in our goal of making Go content more accessible to new players, in their native language.

This particular version is very dear to me because Lucas Felix, who did such an amazing and careful work in translating all the pages, was the first person to ever send me a message and say that he would like to help, thus giving this project traction by providing the first translated chapter back in 2019.

So, it may have taken us a bit longer than other versions, but it can be argued that Lucas has made the most corrections, suggestions and additions to this books improvement both in the English and the translated version, so it was definitely time well spent and there are no words with which I can thank Lucas Felix enough for his work, his help and his support. :)

What I can say with words, however, is that it makes us happy giving more and more people the ability to learn and enjoy Go. It may be a small thing in the grand scheme of things, but every little things matters and we hope that you will find this new addition useful.

Please, if you spot any mistake or typo, let us know so that we can improve the text.
Just like with the previous completed version (Spanish) , the uploads are in three formats (greyscale, CMYK and compressed greyscale) You can download the chapters for free from the project's dedicated webpage for Brazilian Portuguese https://porbr.gobook.eu/ and you are welcome to contribute in any way you can, especially if you want to help with the translation of the book in your own language. Just send me a message and we can get it started.

The next goal of the project, concerning this, is to be able to print some physical copies of the book in Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese and distribute them for free to the Go Clubs of Central and South America.

Be well and have fun playing Go! :)

Catalan chapter 5 has been updated and uploaded in the website.
I am furiously typesetting chapter 6 and Joan LLuis is translating chapter 7.

This means that very soon this version will be completed as well, increasing the number of the fully translated versions to **six** different languages. :)

Hello everyone! The Catalan version has been full completed and can be downloaded from the website. You can see the details in the full announcement in the project's facebook page and hopefully soon we might have some printed copies that will be distributed for free in a cultural book fair in Catalan :)

https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=66 ... 6672203402

Be well!

P.S.
For some reason it wouldn't allow me to upload the cover, this time.

The printed books I mentioned in the previous post are now ready. I received them from the printing company, repackaged them and off they went for Barcelona :)
Once they arrive we will have a better announcement and possibly more details about the cultural celebration that will take place there for Sant Jordi's day, but for now, some pictures of the result:

(as usual I got a "Could not upload attachment to ./some path." error so I have to outsource them)

By the way, I have a few printed copies left in English. If someone wants a free book, let me know and I will send it to you :salute: (I will probably need to do a post sometime in the appropriate forum for that)
