Greetings,

We are proud to announce that the unofficial English translation of Black Sails - The Ghost Ship is finally finished!

Black Sails - The Ghost Ship is a 3rd person, point and click horror-mystery adventure game that was produced in 2010 by Deck13 but was never officially localized in English.

This patch is made for the German retail release and converts everything, besides speech obviously, to English.

For more information and download links please visit our site.

Enjoy!

I always wanted to play this game.
It looked so much more interesting than the games the company DID translate into English. But it's hard to find now.

There's a translated adventuretreff review of Black Sails ***here*** for those that are interested.
And a translation of the Adventure Archive review ***here***

Looks like it might be a good game is anybody playing the game. I've looked every place but nobody has it for sale.

Richard there is a link in the first post that describes the game and has a link to the game on German Amazon to purchase.

Hi Ana,
I have tried to purchase the download version and I get a message that says: "Downloads available for German customers only.". I then tried to buy the boxed version and received a message saying: "We cannot ship this item to this (my) address." The Amazon.de site recognizes my name, address, my Amazon ID, AND my Amazon password, but when it comes to the Checkout procedure, I get the above messages. I guess I won't be able to purchase this game after all. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Sandy

Looking at the Black Sails games on Amazon Germany, it looks like they only ship to Europe. You might be able to buy a copy on eBay - there's a seller here who says he does worldwide shipping.

Maybe there's a workaround on Amazon Germany that I'm not seeing.

I've bought games from Amazon Germany before, but there may be restrictions on downloads and some of the sellers only ship to Europe. Amazon has more than one page for the game.
http://www.amazon.de/Black-Sails-Das-Geisterschiff-PC/dp/B003A2OAVA/qid=1417698553
http://www.amazon.de/Astragon-Black-Sails-Das-Geisterschiff/dp/B0055AEJU2/qid=1417698553
http://www.amazon.de/Astragon-Black-Sails-Das-Geisterschiff/dp/B003EYUT6E/qid=1417698553

When they do ship to the USA, they use Global Express which can cost more than the game. I've only bought from them when I had several games I wanted to order at once, so the shipping cost per game was less.

I use Google CHrome and just right click on the page and select translate.

I use Google translator and copy/paste the link in the box on the left.
https://translate.google.com/

You may have to choose the language to translate from in the dropdown box because it can't auto-detect language if it's a link.

Sometimes websites use non-text, non-html things like Flash that the translator won't translate. Occasionally you can still copy/paste into the translation box to get a translation of a section of text. With long webpages, the translator may stop translating partway down, so you have to copy/paste the text in the translation box.

Amazon.de does have a "Help for English" webpage
http://www.amazon.de/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201575540

and an English shipping page
https://www.amazon.de/gp/help/customer/display.html/ref=hp_505532_ied/?nodeId=200171000

But when you click on "USA" on the shipping page it takes you to a German webpage -- at least it does for me.

Note that you will not be able to buy a German download version.
You'll have to buy a disc version.
And you'll have to use Global Express for shipping, which is expensive, but I think it offers tracking.
