A big messFan Road Rover Mission Control:

"Road Rovers" has spread to all four corners of the world (That is a feat in itself since the world is round) In order for this to happen they needed to translate the show into different languages. To date "Road Rovers" is only available in English, German, Spanish and Portuguese (to my knowledge) But who knows what other languages the show will eventually be transcribed into. Below are some of the translations from the show between the various languages.
