   United Kingdom

Games Workshop was the early printer / distributor of early TSR material (pre-1980); their material bears a Games Workshop logo on the cover and/or the copyright page.  TSR eventually established a "TSR UK" division, which was responsible for not only printing and distributing TSR material in the UK (albeit without a separately identifiable logo), but also with creating modules to be distributed worldwide (B10, UK1 - UK7, etc, all of which bear a small Union Jack flag next to the module code) -- as well as one module never distributed outside of the UK, ST1 Up the Garden Path.

   France

In late 1982, TSR published the D&D Basic Set in French, followed shortly thereafter by modules B3 and B4.  From 1985 to 1989, the French company Transecom released many of the French D&D translations (the remainder being released by TSR, and later TSR UK).  The company was headed by Francois Marcela-Froideval, the co-writer of Oriental Adventures and editor (in 1980) of the first French RPG magazine, Casus Belli (still in press 21 years later!).  Transecom has since gone out of business; French D&D items released after 1989 were printed by TSR UK.  (Thanks to Slaheddine Kefi for this info).

   Germany

Fantasy Spiele Verlags-GmbH (more commonly known as FSV) published most, if not all, of the 1st edition xD&D German translations.  From the advent of 2nd Edition AD&D in 1989, up through the mid-1990's, TSR UK published D&D items in German, hiring several staff members from the former FSV.  Amigo-Spiele did all of the later material (including the S1 Tomb of Horrors and UK-series remakes), and continues to publish today.  (Thanks to Stefan Beate and Adrian Newman for this info).

   Italy

Editrice Giochi published all of the Italian 1st Edition xD&D translations.  In 1986, Editrice Giochi released the first Italian edition of the Basic Set.  Although D&D was never a big hit for the company (which is a large gaming conglomerate, similar to Hasbro), vocal Italian fans served to keep the D&D line alive, bombarding EG with a volume of requests previously unheard of in the Italian gaming industry.  In 1989, the Italian edition of the Companion Set was released and, in contrast to the US edition, it contained the AC7 accessory as a special bonus.  Eager fans started clamoring for support modules and the Master Set.  Modules CM1, CM2, and CM3 soon appeared, but the Master Set remained elusive.  At the time, TSR was launching 2nd Edition AD&D and had killed off the original D&D line.  Editrice Giochi was requested to publish AD&D at once, eliminating D&D.  The Italian publisher disagreed, stating that the Italian market was too young and needed further development.  AD&D would remain out of the Italian market for a few more years, when another publisher purchased the rights and released the three core AD&D 2nd Edition rulebooks.  D&D briefly resurfaced in 1990, when TSR released the Classic D&D Game to serve as an introduction to RPGs.  The box was published in Italian (discontinuing the old Basic Set), and in what some called a "payoff", the Master Set was published too.  The introductory box was never embraced by fans, garnering unfavorable reviews because it was deemed too complex for beginners and its system of sheets for ‘quick’ learning was, according to many, a real mess.  Every publisher in the field toyed with the possibility of publishing in Italian the D&D titles never released into Italian.  Unfortunately, TSR before, and Wizards of the Coast after, rejected these requests (perhaps fearing competition for AD&D).  The project for a moment seemed to have some concrete chance, when new publisher 21st Century Games produced a line of miniature AD&D reprints and announced plans to publish original D&D books in miniature format (in English) and normal format (in Italian).  Sadly, the publisher went under and the project went nowhere.  (Thanks to Ciro Alessandro Sacco for this info).

   Japan

Shinwa was the publisher of most (all?) of the Japanese xD&D translations.  English-language D&D products were first introduced to Japan in the mid '80s (when AD&D was at its peak) and within a few years translated rulebooks, modules and miniatures appeared.  Japanese versions of D&D products always enjoyed a much wider following than their AD&D counterparts.  The AD&D rules were too convoluted and the translations were too confusing for Japanese gamers' tastes, and as a result, no Japanese AD&D products were ever produced.  Eventually, due to the overall poor quality of TSR products and because several Japanese RPG's sprang up to steal away Japanese gamers, interest in D&D faded.  Finally, video games -- and later, CCG's -- killed off RPG's in Japan by the early '90s.  Most distributors and game stores either threw out or sold off all their inventory to make room for new merchandise -- not uncommon since shelf and stock space are expensive in Japan.  (Thanks to Ed Courtroul for this info).

   Spain

Dalmau Carles published all the Spanish D&D translations (Set 1: Basic Rules and B-series modules).  The AD&D translations were published by Ediciones Martinez Roca.  AD&D was not popular in Spain until the very late 1980's, so therefore, the only AD&D items released were for 2nd Edition AD&D and later (thanks to Francisco Aritio and Andrés Otero for this info).  The exception of this is Leaves From the Inn of the Last Home, published as a novel-appendix by Timun Mas.

   Sweden

Titan Games published all of the Swedish xD&D translations.  Apparently, the company had planned to release a complete translation of 2nd Edition AD&D (the Players Handbook was already translated), when they were forced to close down due to heavy competition.  Most of this was from the Swedish fantasy RPG "Drakar och Demoner" (Dragons and Demons), which despite the name was NOT a D&D clone.  (Thanks to Andreas Landt for this info).  Mikael Borjesson of Titan Games adds: "We never actually published anything for Forgotten Realms.  On the drawing board when we closed down in January 1990 was AD&D 2nd Edition, modules X4 and X5, and Set 4: Master Rules (to include the remaining Companion Rules).  Regarding the module contents, aside from the format change to European standard A4, I don't think we changed anything.  It's worth noting that the Basic Rules are printed in US letter size even though it was printed in Germany (and specifically ordered as A4)."
