Video Game Translation: What’s at Stake?

In the world of video games, a poor translation can have a negative impact on what the community thinks about the game. This could have consequences on sales. It is therefore essential to entrust the translation to native professionals who specialize in localizing video games.

Indeed, translating video games can be more complicated than it is in other fields.

A video game has a simultaneous release on the international market. It is therefore imperative that it be operational in its original language and in all the target languages it is intended for before being released on the market.

When we talk about simultaneous launch, we also talk about simultaneous production. When the source language is still being completed, translation may already be in progress. Translators must therefore double-check to update the content in all target languages each time the source language is changed.

In role-playing games, transcreation may be necessary to ensure the names of people or objects with have the same impact.

Other points: the translated content must fit within strict character limitations. This is a sometimes-complex criterion that must be respected especially with languages such as German which requires more characters than French or English for example.
