Big grin A friendly, native english speaking corrector, needed

Could someone with a huge english vocabulary up his sleave, please help me with "some" polish to english translation project?

I'm not really good with english, which is no suprise to anyone, but when it comes to some of the onomastics, like character/object names that are very specific, I'm even worse.
Yes, I know, I'm into nomina propria all the way, cause in most cases the translation sounds like a crappy craped-up carp, but... maybe we'll think of something together.

I'll wait for the thunderstorm of responses to this thread with revealing the title of the game to be translated...

As you know I am not native speaker but I think both we could do it correct. How much of it to translate do you have? PM me.

Well, for now, all I have are a few prepearations in the source file, a few extra lines for the future translation.
I think I'll manage to translate most of this, but to get "the right words in the right place" not to mention shorten the sentence into the available amount of space is a killer...
Oh, and the names - now THIS is hard. But doable...

You need to use your tongue silly

Seriously, I find little fault (other than the mandatory typos) with your posts my friend, I was actually quite impressed by your written English skills, especially for someone from a country where the native language is so structurally different.

Have more confidence in yourself and sod all what your GF tells you, doctor Gimbal's perscription!
