Default GURPS in other languages

Hi, I'm new in GURPS and the publishing company that have the authorization to print the books in my country don't do that. I would like buy the books on demand my language, so I created this thread to know if there is more people that want this too.

I suppose it'd help if it was known which language was your language.

Have you tried used book stores? We had this problem in Brazil before, yeah, I live here too. If they got the rights to publish, there's not much we can do besides learn english. It is a question of supply and demand. If there's no market, they won't print it.

Well, I understand this, but I have a crazy idea: make a crowdfunding to SJG translate the PDFs to Portuguese and inspired people in other countries to make the same with owns language. But I need to know if there is people enough. So I create this thread to see who reply.

I don't think the people who needs translated books are the same as those who frequents this english forum...

The Brazilian licensees may well have bought exclusive rights. If that's the case, SJ Games can't allow a separate translation-and-publication project.
