A lot of things have changed now.
Before, we do not have any way to buy genuine game. You know there are a lot of games will not sell game DVD in China. So if we want to buy genuine game, we can only tell some people who stay in abroad to buy this game and send it to us. This is a very expensive way for us. After steam came out, we can buy digital version through the steam. But at first, steam did not support Chinese Debit card or Credit card. You should know at that time, only few people have international credit card. Even now, most of Chinese university students only have debit card. Without international credit card, they cannot buy game from steam. Maybe in 2010, steam supported Alipay, you can consider it is Chinese paypal, then we could buy games from steam through an official way.
Now you should notice more and more Chinese players start to buy games through the steam. Even if there are still a lot of players who download pirated games, players who buy genuine games are increasing. Nowadays, a lot of my friends start to buy games from steam. They want to play multi player game or play with friends. Multi-player game mode has became more important than before and this is the most important reason for people to buy genuine game. Time has changed, more and more Chinese players will buy genuine games. Your opinion has been out of date.
I want to translate this game because I want to play Chinese version. I know develop team do not have enough ability to translate this game, so my teammates and I want to translate this game by ourselves. We have bought this game, we just want to make this game better and let more Chinese can play this game too. We do this not for pirated game. Because we bought this game, we can submit our suggestions or we can do what we can do to make this game better. That's all. Nothing is related to pirated game.
At last, we still can buy from steam. And steam has announced it will start its business in China officially. In fact, there are already 24 servers in China now and we can buy game through it. We can buy game through the it and develop team can sell game through it, it is the most important thing for both of us.
