At risk of upsetting you further, Tahra, klickywelt.de has Playkingdoms listed as a Spanish site on their links page! Which is strange, as it is written in English anyway...

WHAT!?

On my way to try to get hold of SOMEONE... what a weird thing to do.  I've been mistaken for american and english, but spanish?! REALLY!? Seriously?!

Poor translations are rife. We always have a laugh at instruction booklets translated into English from Chinese or whatever! (Sadly I can't put my hand on one just at the moment).

It's REALLY insulting.  We do NOT speak spanish. And portuguese is different from brazilian portuguese. I am so sick of this. :(

Hear, hear, Geobra!
I totally agree with you, Tahra. It's a shame and it bothers me every single time. I would prefer to have it all just in english (or even german) instead of a poor mix of misspelled expressions, somewhat between Portuguese and Spanish...  :doh:
