Wolfenstein: The Old Blood Translations

Last year we translated the loading screen messages from Wolfenstein: The New Order, and one year later with the release of Wolfenstein: The Old Blood we’re doing the same for that.  Each time you load up your game, or reload after dying, you’ll be treated to some propaganda messages from the alternate universe – but what do they mean?  We’ve consulted our trusty friend, Herr Google, and he’s told us what they are (and takes no responsibility for being slightly wrong!).
