Back in the spring of 2010, I was speaking at the Agile Games 2010 conference in Boston. I met a fellow there by the name of Heitor Filho from Brazil. I mentioned that we actually have a lot of people visiting TastyCupcakes.com from South America and have had many great game submissions from people living there. Heitor suggested that he might know some people who would be willing to volunteer their time to translate the game content on TastyCupcakes into Brazillian Portuguese and Spanish. Less than a year has passed now and the project is complete, TastyCupcakes.com is now trilingual and accessible to more of our friends in South America. A huge thank you to the whole team who volunteered their time to this project. The names and photos of the team are below.
