Short ago I found at eBay this book from the third series. It's a German version. The story is about Irma struggling with her house duties and bad notes, while another world needs help from Witch. A magician keeps a princess hostage...

I have that book, still haven't read it. It is just one of the many books with scandinavian authors.

hmm.. you can see most of these images on witch-news. it's a Danish site.
these books are not in english, so scanning anything else but the image inserts would be pointless.

C`mon people be happy with the comics, its big deal to translate book. It`s ok if it`s on english, then it`s only have to scan it, but translating the whole story ...

Well, I can understand German pretty well, so nobody has to translate it for me :)

(just kidding, I know this is an English website and it has no use to put a German book in here if almost nobody can understand it)

Less so than if it were an audio book, I think. At least in a written format you can tell where the word separation is. Well, most of the time, depending on the written language (Japanese being a bit more difficult than German or Italian).

wow, easy there..

To my knowledge there hasn't been any WITCH book translated bij fans, and honestly I think there never will be. It takes way too much time and effort.

Basic German is not enough to translate a whole book. For me basic French wasn't even enough to translate a comic.

I can understand that. I'm fluent in Vietnamese, but even that's difficult for me if I try to translate WITCH comic into that language, due to the difficulties of cultural language differences and I have to somehow make it sound fluently.
For example, the Harry Potter books were great in its original English language, but when I read the Vietnamese ones, it was pretty much crap to me. :lol:

yeah, translating is always more difficult than people think, that's what I always say to those who offer their help, but then again I also started one day and we all learn by practice. too bad official releases don't always have the high standards you'd expect (like the swedish WITCH editors work for example) so maybe it's more of an ambition thing ...

Omg, is that the lost book of the ADVENTURES series? I mean, there's Will, Taranee, Cornelia & Hay-Lin's adventures, but where is Irma's story? [in english, right? :)]
BTW to that, if i'm an ignorant, is there an Irma book anywhere on sale? it's missing in my collection. :(
