"wrote:"What countries will get own language version after Russia? How far is the german translation? Will you provide german only servers or just let us play on the internationals with a german client?"
Dear GGG, i hope its not going to be one of those awful not by choice kind of things when you do add a german client/version. I always set all my games to english anyways, and i want to play POE in english even if there is a german version. I hope i am given this as a choice, not by force.

Even though I think from a technical perspective nothing should speak against being able to choose your language, I need to second this.
Having occasionally browsed through some German translations of PoE skill gems and similar stuff, I must say it feels pretty weird to me. (Not to forget it makes communication between users of different clients more difficult: "Feuersturm you say? Ah, that must be Firestorm. But what the heck is this Entladungs-Edelstein¹ you keep talking about?)
And in Diablo 2, having different initials for the same thing (Skill, Item, whatever) depending on the language was pretty silly, imho.
