A thousand strings?  No kidding...  And if only to keep myself in a "Xan mood", I just calculated that I need translate 129 strings to increase my progress by 1%... ::)
But no worries, I'm keeping my chin up. I sure hope players won't be disappointed, I do know that a lot of them are awaiting this mod, and I really hope to deliver.

I'll just have to remind them once in a while that a rushed job is a botched job. ;D

But then again...  what's the point? ;)

You should've seen me translating Xan into Russian at speed 100 lines per hour. And people's been playing it! Hah, I've been told that all these tragic scenes in English are absolutely hilarious in Russian. Um, good thing, I assume?

Anyway, magic erotic words to keep track of in both languages are "pale", "quietly", "dark hair", and "raised an eyebrow". Then your translation becomes a panty-peeler. Jo Rowling sure knows that.

(Kidding.)
