    Don't worry, we have translations for Harald Bluetooth already on the front page (DLC civs are further down the page).

    Possibly a little off topic, but did anyone else hear a WWII reference in Bismarcks defeat speech?
    Germany has been destroyed. I weep for the future generations. ("Deutschland ist zerstört worden. Ich weine um die zukünftigen Generationen.")

    Or to put it in slightly more eloquent terms: "Depraved Villain! We are going to put you six feed under!"

    I think he just means that since the player will rule Germany now he's sorry for the future generations.

    Now Korea has been added. Once we get the dialogue, someone who knows Korean can translate it. I wonder what's next? Carthage, Zulu, Celts, Portuguese, Dutch?

    Mayans another possibility.

    If we go by region, Africa/Middle East and the Americas are both sorely due (two Europe, three Asia, but only one Africa/Middle East and one America).

    oh my god! I'm also native Korean. A voice actor seems like a Korean, but it sounded like he was just reading a book. I'm gonna buy it, though.

    Yeah....the voice acting is kinda...off. And he does sound like he's reading, unfortunately. Disappointed. Also, what's up with the Korea intro not talking about Korea, but just being all glorious about Sejong's achievements? For every other civ's intro, they mention what the civ did/is famous for. =_=

    I think the best test is for a listener that doesn't speak the language. I suppose you could say he's trying to be scholarly, but I agree it isn't spectacular.

    I definitely agree about the leader info. I would have liked something about Korea overall (basic overview of three kingdoms and unity. Straddled between the influence of Japan and China. Maybe something about modern Korea and the split post-WWII. Also include Sejong, just not exclusively).

    I could translate it, but I'm hoping someone who can type Korean well will volunteer instead. Right now I'm rather disappointed with the voice actor though.... :(

    I didnt bought the dlc but someone uploaded the voice files : http://soundcloud.com/twopeniswalk/sets/king-sejongs-speech

    Here is transcription. But I doubt about the file names - since these names are differentl from 'normal' leader's voice file names.

    Now to translate them! I'm busy settling into my law school community, so I'll have to get back to you.

    I will say that the intro is, "Welcoming to the Choson court, stranger. I am Sejong, the wise king who takes care of my great people."

    Translations for King Sejong are uploaded! I think I may be missing one statement which didn't have the original Korean transcription though (and I don't have a Korean keyboard on this computer.)

    Example:
    When I declare war to Ragnar he says something, puts on his helmet, laughs and says something again. Another interesting plot is when leader lose a war and come to "congratulate".

    I'm interested every non english speaking leader actions(and speech) in those situations but cannot find them anywhere.

    I thought asking here cause this forum has visitors of various countries. :)
