Apologies for not responding to this sooner - it's my fault that I haven't replied yet, and I'm sorry for the delay in posting. With the latest Letter from the Producer LIVE video, we had intended to forgo the release of English subtitles in an effort to get the Q&A summary posted much quicker after the stream had ended. As I'm sure you can all agree, that didn't exactly work out.
To give some insight into the process, we have multiple teams around the world that spend their time working on these efforts (for instance, the Community Teams in North America, Japan, and Europe and the FFXIV Localization team). Unfortunately, as I'm sure you're aware, the Beta Test is taking up quite a large chunk of those resources, which led to multiple delays in the posting of the Q&A summary. Initially we had hoped to get the summary up in nearly half the time, with everyone focused on it first and foremost, but things don't always go according to plan.
Again, I apologize for the delay in the Q&A summary being posted, and also for not being clear about our plan not to include subtitles.
