  1. This stuff just gets exponentially sadder when you can understand their jabber. I guess the British were right not bothering to learn anyone’s language. Makes shooting the blighters easier, what?

    • Is that a real thing? The British not learning the local language to make “dealing” with the locals easier. It certainly sounds like an Imperial tactic.

      You are exactly right though. I could certainly gloss over a lot of writing by just making the alien language complete gibberish. ( And save panel space. ) However, I want the dialogue to have depth and meaning even if the reader doesn’t initially understand. The characters Emily encounters have history and purpose.
      You know…like when you actually encounter a non-native language speaker in your daily life.

      Oh, and thanks for commenting Nestor.
