Wordament Goes Dutch on Windows Phone



Microsoft could probably leave Wordament exactly as-is and it would still keep many of us busy for, like, ever. But what if you don’t speak English, the language that yours truly wields like swords? Hey, the developers have got your covered. The Xbox Live version launched with English and Spanish, allowing muchas personas to enjoy the game.

Now Wordament’s Dutch language support has gone live as well. Not to be confused with the movie Dutch, the Dutch language is spoken in Holland and the Netherlands, of which Holland is a region. Microsoft plans to add several more European languages to the game in the future: French, Italian, German, and Swedish – sorry Portugal!

Wordament is free and supported by ads. Get it here on the Marketplace. We'll have a full review soon.

Update: Even Portugese could be in the cards.

Mouthsmasher says:

Have Heart says:

PT-PT please! Not PT- BR :c

Criatura555 says:

PT-BR and PT-PT please!
We have a game call "Caça-Palavras" in Marketplace Brazil (available in US too) that is "inspired" by Wordament, but a "official" version will be nice.

Banstyle says:

Oof, just guessed my way to '10 in 10', thanks Paul! Dutch is such an under appreciated movie.

Banstyle says:

Paul why are the screenshots pink? Mine has an orange background and I can't find any way to change it. I want pink!

Paul Acevedo says:

Not sure, Ry-guy. Probably has to do with the phone's theme setting outside of the game, but I haven't tested it.

Hoekie says:

Changes with theme. My wife uses pink and therefore shows pink. Me and my daughter use blue so therefore shows blue.

Banstyle says:

Interesting that it's tied to the phone theme! Very cool. I don't know any other game that has that.

rtarkovski says:

No Russian? It makes me sad. My English is not good enough to reach top 100.

bitemeblinky says:

Hell I'm American and my English isn't good enough to make the top 100. I got #1 on Spanish though :)

I wanna Brazilian Portuguese.

Thamuz says:

Dutch is also spoken in a part of Belgium, btw :)

Nice to see Dutch language support though, it's nice to see that Microsoft realizes there are other countries outside of the US besides the UK :)

I love the game! I'd like these additions:

• Norwegian language support
• Ability to invite friends to the game

I'm sorry Paul but uh,
the Dutch language is spoken in Holland and the Netherlands, of which Holland is a region.
Is not really true. Holland and The Netherlands are both the same. Holland is not a region, Holland is just... Holland! Haha! It's confusing, I know, but you can refer to our country with both words ;-)

Reinout_ says:

Actually he is right. Holland was a region in the Netherlands during the time of the United Provinces.
The Netherlands = Holland + Noord Brabant + Limburg
But indeed, most people don't make the difference. 

Theelichtje says:

yeah, i wanted to say this too haha ;) never really bothered to play it, but ill give it a try with dutch words now

Reinout_ says:

Most Belgian people speak Dutch too. Just sayin"

There's a reason why I steered clear of socio-linguistics in grad school ;-)

TheMasterPT says:

Swedish - spoken by 10 million people.
Portuguese - spoken by 236 million people.
Lord, have mercy on their souls...

Giddora says:

Most Finns speak swedish too. But yeah... The total is probably well below 15 million souls. :(

Hoekie says:

Because of the support for the Dutch language Wordament adds real value. And Daniel, thanks for posting news for readers outside the US too !

aeronaught says:

I guess my guessing skills aren't as good, the highest I can get is 15th without knowing a single word in Dutch. :(

Thuoudo says:

Can't wait for the German version. Half the tiles will be Es! :D
The Swedish version will be debuting in 2032 on Windows Phone 17 once they figure out all 16 of their tenses.
And I'll give Dutch a shot since it's functionally very close to English mixed into German.
Edit: There were 8 others on the Dutch version last night (USA night), and someone in Canada was getting 450+ points every game.
