Greetings!
We are running a series of boardgame blogs here in Russia, the main being Geek Media, making videos and articles.
We would like to make reviews of new games as well as unrelesed ones and so are ready for cooperation with game designers.

The games get nice reviews in English before they are out and we are basically trying to make the same in English. We are doing exclusive content and are already working with several publishers all around the world.

Here's the link to the blog (mind that only 1000 subscribers is due to it being only one month old, but we are rapidly growing). https://vk.com/geekmediagroup

There you can see both new articles and recieved prototypes reviews.

This cooperation could increase the interest to your game among Russian public.
We also have good relations with several distributors and publishers here and they could get interested in distributing or localizing your games.

Do not hesitate to contact me on yurkaw@mail.ru

Regards, Yury

Bad Web Design

You state English access, yet you go with a pseudo-responsive design that prevents users from accessing the link at the bottom that gives an English version. Move the link to the top or don't get English seekers.

Finding the English

I "caught" the English link, and it only affects the site's static content. The posts and comments are still in Russian.

If there are multi-language versions of the articles, the user ought to be able to pick them at the top as ssm suggested. It's likely that some articles won't be in every language, and that's okay. For those, provide a placeholder (probably in Russian) with a link to Google Translate or similar.

I believe what he meant was:

"games get nice reviews in English before they are out and we are basically trying to do the same in Russian."

The website (vk.com) is basically Russian clone of Facebook.

What he offers is to make a review in Russian for Russian market, hence no English content there.

That makes quite a bit more sense than what I thought was happening :-)

Sorry for the mess.

Sorry for the mess. That is really our intention to do Russian content for Russian public as far as there's already a lot done in english and other languages.

This should read like " The games get nice reviews in English before they are out and we are basically trying to make the same in Russian".
