When we first started doing localization, we were sending out everything in Excel spreadsheets. It got to a point where it was confusing and inefficient. So about two and a half years ago we looked for a better solution and we found Wordbee. They were really supportive from day one and helped us figure out what we really needed. Their translation management system came with the flexibility, scalability, and customization capabilities that we needed at a great price.
Video games nowadays require translation of thousands of words from the beginning of the project to the end. Within these video games projects, there are different textual types, each of which has its own characteristics and purpose. Because we are dealing with a multimedia product, translators also face challenges of a multimedia nature. Within the same project, they have to deal with a wide variety of issues, such as reproducing the oral quality of dialogue in writing for subtitling and pop-up dialogue windows, lip-syncing for challenges in the translation of video game.
Today, 15% of the world’s very largest games makers are clients of Wordbee with existing projects such as:
- Integration with content management systems
- Deployment of terminology tool at large scale
- Use of crowdsourcing for internal translations/revisions
