Translation Cloud specializes in game localization, quality assurance and voice recording for both online and console-based games. Game localization is much more than a niche industry these days. As the sales figures in international markets continue to escalate, so will localized versions of games become more and more profitable.

By choosing to localize, you’re giving your company the ability to explore future opportunities without limits. Our mission is to provide application and gaming companies with the highest quality translations. We also recognize that game developers have some very specific needs when deciding to localize, and we are confident that the extent of our services will exceed your expectations.

We offer localization services for all major European, Asian and Middle Eastern languages.  We work only with professional native speakers of each language being tested.

What we provide:

  • Q&A testing, translation, audio services, asset integration & linguistic testing.
  • File preparation, content review, terminology creation, and validation.
  • Highest quality native translation and localization.

Translation isn’t the first step of video game localization.

First, we issue copies of the game to all linguists involved in the localization process, including the chosen translators, allowing them a few weeks to familiarize themselves with the overall theme and mood of the game.

Second, our professional translators translate and transcribe all required content into organized and manageable files.

Next, is the recording process. The recording is done in a private studio, and we have an extensive database of trained voice-over actors, covering various nationalities. All voice-overs are meticulously time synchronized.  Detailed notes from our translators will be used to guide the actors throughout the recording process to ensure they follow the right theme and emote the proper mood for each line they’ll read. After the recording is complete, the recordings are edited, mixed, and tested thoroughly.

While the recording process is in motion, our localization team works with your text files, images and graphic materials.

After the localization is complete (including text, audio and images) we adhere to the strictest approval procedures, using the latest terminologies and bug report tools. We are committed to testing until your product is perfectly compatible and cleared for approval.
