However, if you feel like filling that gap and becoming a murder mystery game translator, read on...

become a murder mystery party game translator

While I can’t speak for other companies, I do know that the German translations for Freeform Games were created by an enthusiastic customer who wanted to run the games for his German-speaking friends.

He approached Freeform Games who agreed to pay him for the translation.

So if there’s a game that you like the look of, then I suggest that you contact the publishers and see if they would be happy for them to translate it.

If they can then sell your translation they may well pay you for the translation.
