I'm sorry for the slight necrobump, but those sly translators have edited one particular line in this letter:
Currently, the above changes, together with other adjustments and additions I have planned, are at about a 30% state of completion.
Currently, the above changes, together with other adjustments and additions, comprise about 30% of what we currently have planned.
Seems like they also noticed the wording was originally misleading, when compared to the second letter, and this line in particular:
Many players have voiced their desire for a complete list of all planned changes, rather than a partial 30% list.
Although it's a ninja-edit of the highest caliber, I am glad that these translation errors are being corrected. Keep up the good work.
From here I could make the assumption that the changes Yoshida revealed to us (30%) are being implemented in a 2 month schedule. That leaves them with around 7 months to implement everything they have planned (30%+30%+30%+10%). Edited, Feb 4th 2011 9:43pm by Hyanmen
