I found a new dialect : Occitan (Provençal Mistralien)

Moderator Note: Welsh is a language in its own right, not a regional dialect.

Just so you know, the modern day Tintin books published in USA are copies of the UK ones. When Tintin was first published in America, they had different translations.

While the spoken Chinese dialects are all different to be considered seperate languages, but held together by the unity of the written language, a similar thing applies to simplified and traditional Chinese; they are really two different written languages, though not too different...

Also I'm pretty sure Brasilian has its own publisher, even if it doesn't use a different translation (indeed, does it?).
