Let me explain. Sapkowski is an oldschool cracov Pole. He speaks polish, german, jidish and russia. He does not know english, even on a basic level. He is also ultra salty, even with money, about the whole CD Projekt thing. There for he asked my aunt, who he knows from way back in the 90s when they were both working with SDKPR for legalising abortion and against concordat. He asked my aunt to help, my aunt is the owner of Alingua, a translation company in cracow. netflix was asking sapkowski if he is okey with some stuff, and if he has his own ideas. The white girl turning in to a black female mage was sapkowskis idea. But you don't have to trust me friend. Wait till the series is out.
Ah and they made Renfri a lesbian, where before she fucked everything, the huntsman, the dwarfs, her gang members etc.
