In August 2017 a Dutch translation (not official yet) went online, faithful adaption save for [[{{Woolseyism}} a few]] [[DubNameChange terms and names]].



* [[http://mspfa.com/?s=21852&p=1 Dutch dub]]



* AllLowercaseLetters: The [[spoiler: Shadows]] speak like this. Averted in the Dutch dub, where they speak with perfect interpunction and capitalisation, and whole sentences instead of it being chopped up, making it a bit more disturbing ''[[FauxAffablyEvil just because]]'' they talk like that.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: The Dutch dub, at times. Compare [[http://mspfa.com/?s=275&p=536 these]] [[http://mspfa.com/?s=21852&p=535 two]] pages.



** The new names of the Shadows were teased on the translator's blog [[http://68.media.tumblr.com/92f252a4ab2ff5e3c874335515764f09/tumblr_inline_ous7lmRyx11tsdzdp_500.jpg in this image]], only the first letter being visible and the rest blacked out.



* CreepyAwesome: The translation uses a soundtrack, and the biggest part is from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. The songs sometimes eerily fit, but [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8nfmFPnDx4 Gradus Prohibitus]] in particular. Seeing it has the characters note it being creepy, it is probably one of the few standard music tracks in-universe.
* CutAndPasteTranslation: Mostly averted in the Dutch dub, but the first line in the description is literally translated ('Iedereen heeft wel eens een slechte dag').



* DepartmentofRedundancyDepartment: In the translation, the names of [[spoiler: the Shadows]] appear [[CypherLanguage in runes]] when they physically appear, after which the actual name usually has been said before.



* DubInducedPlothole: [[spoiler: 'Witches' only speak directly to the one they're a 'witch' of. When they physically appear for the first time, [[CypherLanguage their rune name]] is posted. From then on, the other characters will start addressing the 'witch' by their respective name. It is never explained where they got the name from (as the rune name is posted below the actual image) or [[InstantExpert how they can read runes all of a sudden]]]].
* DubNameChange: The Dutch dub [[ImportationExpansion actually names]] [[spoiler: all of the Shadows save for [[http://mspfa.com/?s=21852&p=1418 Vivian]]]] (who are renamed [[spoiler: [[GratuitousEnglish witches]]]]). This actually works on multiple levels: it makes them more personable and the term [[spoiler: witches]] is not only a ShoutOut but also a case of XtremeKoolLetterz in Dutch, since the combination of '[[spoiler:tche]]' is almost nonexistent, adding into the otherworldly sphere.
** [[spoiler: Shadow Sam]] to '[[http://mspfa.com/?s=21852&p=751 Karli]]'
** [[spoiler: Shadow Cherry]] to '[[http://mspfa.com/?s=21852&p=1031 Azura]]'
** [[spoiler: Shadow Louis]] to '[[http://mspfa.com/?s=21852&p=1338 Bellona]]'
** [[spoiler: Shadow Rick]] to '[[http://mspfa.com/?s=21852&p=923 Viktoria]]'
** [[spoiler: Shadow Percy]] to '[[http://mspfa.com/?s=21852&p=1184 Ravenna]]'
** [[spoiler: Shadow Quin]] to '[[Webcomic/TheHumanGame Cam]][[http://mspfa.com/?s=21852&p=1581 illa]]'
** [[spoiler: Shadow Helen]] to '[[http://mspfa.com/?s=21852&p=1897 Elizabeth]]'
** [[spoiler: Shadow Ava]] to '[[http://mspfa.com/?s=21852&p=1068 Morgana]]'
*** The places [[spoiler: they reside in]] are also in GratuitousEnglish, being called '[[spoiler:barriers]]' [[ShoutOut to match]] [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica up]].



** The Dutch dub adds in new {{Foreshadowing}} [[http://mspfa.com/?s=21852&p=715 here]]. [[http://mspfa.com/?s=275&p=716 In the original]], Grey was simply addressing Louis not to be so rude, by using the word 'belligerent'. In the Dutch dub, he seems to do that too. However, since [[spoiler: Shadow Louis]] [[DubNameChange is renamed Bellona]], it could also be seen as '[[spoiler:Being Bellona won't help you]].' Which is, [[spoiler: entirely true]]. Even the spoiler under the text points at this fact.



** Percy - [[spoiler: Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder (301.4). Closes all doors on sight, cleans his bed as soon as he wakes up and a CreatureOfHabit. Freaks out when all his notes are gone and is slow to accept using Ava's notebook instead. Initially stays outside when Ava and Percy enter the cave (Ravenna's barrier in the dub), but then enters because he's worried]]. WordOfGod says his tag would be '''o'''rganizational'''C'''olumnist.

* ImportationExpansion: The Dutch dub adds in a new description below the iconic line:
--> Zodra hij wakker geworden is, weet Sam Herbert niet hoe snel hij weer weg moet uit het enge, oude gebouw met zijn bijzondere bewoners. Maar als de situatie in een ander licht komt te staan, raakt zijn leven ongewild verstrengeld met dat van de [[{{Pun}} kleurrijke]] heiligen en zondaren van het ziekenhuis. Al snel ontdekt hij dat er veel op het spel staat. Want wie zit er achter de bizarre teksten op de muren en de steeds wisselende ruimtes? Rust er een vloek op de bewoners? Of is het gewoon dit gekke oude huis dat voor problemen zorgt? Zonder dat ze het doorhebben, lopen ze recht in het gevaarlijke web van de donkere geschiedenis die in hun hoofden hangt. [[note]] As soon as he awakes, Sam Herbert doesn't know how fast he wants to leave from the creepy, old building with its excentric inhabitants. But when the situation is painted in an entirely different light, his life unwillingly gets tangled with that of the [[{{Pun}} colorful]] saints and sinners of the hospital. He quickly discovers this is a dangerous game. For who is behind the bizarre texts on the walls and the constantly changing rooms? Is there a curse on the inhabitants? Or is it just this weird old building that's causing trouble? Without knowing it themselves, they walk straight into the dangerous web of the dark history that's hanging in their heads. [[/note]]
* IronicEcho: Only in the Dutch version. When he's calling everyone through the intercom, Grey [[http://mspfa.com/?s=21852&p=1972 uses part of]] [[http://mspfa.com/?s=21852&p=601 the same sentences]] as Juliet:
--> Niet alles is meer zo stabiel, jongens. Ga naar de hoofdingang. Daar komen we samen. [[note]] Not everything is as stable as it used to be, guys. Go to the main entrance. There we will gather. [[/note]]



* MadnessMantra: Occasionally uttered by Quin. Also, in the Dutch version (doubles with GratuitousEnglish) ''You know it's gonna hurt/So why would you want more?'' [[spoiler: It [[http://mspfa.com/?s=21852&p=2169 ends]] with the stanza ''I know it's gonna hurt/But you're worth fighting for.'']] [[note]] The link in the panel leads to a Nightcore edit, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01IvIL7Cyic this]] is the original song. [[/note]]

** In the Dutch dub, directly after [[spoiler: Vivian]] says ''Why don't you introduce me then?'' (Waarom introduceer je me dan niet?) [[http://mspfa.com/?s=21852&p=1418 the panel with her rune name is posted]].



* RealisticDictionIsUnrealistic: Subverted. Even more so in the Dutch dub, where most characters are SophisticatedAsHell (Even [[spoiler: the Shadows]]) and Louis eventually starts talking...[[PorkyPigPronunciation strange]]. ([[spoiler:Which is a consequence of [[DubNameChange Bellona]] taking over]].)

([[spoiler:Which is a consequence of [[DubNameChange Bellona]] taking over]].)



* SophisticatedAsHell: Just about everyone in the Dutch dub, demonstrated [[http://mspfa.com/?s=21852&p=703 here]]:
--> '''Sam''': Nou, voor mij klonk het als kwakzalverij in de oren! [[note]] Well, it sounded like crap to me. [[/note]]
--> '''Juliet''': Dat was het niet! [[GratuitousEnglish Hell]], dus niet iedereen heeft zo'n extraordinair zesde zintuig zoals ik! [[note]] That wasn't the case! Hell, so not everyone has such an extraordinary sixth sense like me! [[/note]]
** They also tend to use shortenings for words, like 'da's' (that's but far more informal), and 'ie' for 'hij' (like using 'e' for 'him'). Even Louis [[http://mspfa.com/?s=21852&p=714 does this]].



* StandardSnippet: In the dub:
** Whenever a 'barrier' is entered, '[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8nfmFPnDx4 Gradus Prohibitus]]' is playing.
** Percy's appearance is almost always paired by ''some'' version of 'Another Episode'.
** Each time the characters [[spoiler: start realizing the truth, ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfDuF6_iqGQ facing the truth]]'']] is playing.



* {{Woolseyism}}: The Dutch translator went to lengths to translate [[spoiler: the SubliminalSeduction code mentioned before, except there's only one message as all letters are in caps. If you reverse the string and remove all of the non-alphabetic characters, you get: 'JE HEBT IETS DEMONISCH GEDAAN EN IK WIL JE DODEN VAN BINNENUIT/WANT JIJ HEBT IETS GEDAAN DAT NIET MOCHT EN IK HOOP DAT JE HET LOT ZULT GENIETEN DAT JE HEBT VANAF NU/ZOWAAR IK KARLI HEET', translated: 'YOU HAVE DONE SOMETHING DEMONIC AND I WANT TO KILL YOU FROM THE INSIDE/BECAUSE YOU HAVE DONE SOMETHING THAT WASN'T ALLOWED AND I HOPE YOU WILL ENJOY THE FATE YOU WILL HAVE FROM NOW/FOR MY NAME IS [[DubNameChange KARLI]]']].
