Games translations

We translate, edit and proofread all type of gaming material, provide cultural adaptation services, and fully localise dialogues. Teams of experienced experts in given fields are carefully selected to work on specific game genres. Whatever the challenge, be it a game for kids, an FPS, an MMO, or an adventure game, we always pick the right translators who ensure their project is pulled off successfully. We are dedicated to providing creative, natural texts so that the plot of the game can be equally engrossing for Polish, French as well as Japanese gamers.

  • Our translators work with CAT tools, which offer an abundance of benefits:
  • The use of translation memories allows us to easily handle sequels to renowned games
  • Vocabulary remains consistent even if several translators are working on the project at the same time; games with extensive glossaries pose no problems
  • Translators can easily be substituted in case of emergency without compromising quality or risking delays
  • Why ROBOTO?
  • Project managers assigned to each client
  • Well-established operational procedures ensure cost ad time flexibility, at the same time allowing us to offer the full range of services
  • We continuously invest in translation resources (language training, post-graduate courses, etc.), which results in limited rotation of human resources over the last 10 years. Our staff have been gaining tonnes of experience over the many years of their work or cooperation with Roboto Translation.
  • Regular feedback for projects in progress as well as those completed, internal QC system for translators and editors.
  • Post-mortem review after completion of a project – for the team as well as the Client.

VIDEO GAME LOCALISATION IS NOT ONLY ABOUT THE TEXT

Recording services

Sometimes there is more to games than meets the eye, and they are not only about text localisation. More and more publishers decide to release fully localised games, which adds an additional sparkle to the game in the form of dialogues in the target language. Roboto is delighted to play its part in that adventure! Check why our recording services are so highly rated!

Why ROBOTO?

  • We offer comprehensive recording services in gaming projects. From concept and casting, to the final product in the target language, we provide services that encompass all areas: database or dedicated castings, pre-production, recording, special effects implementation, working with time-synched or lip-synched files, and, last but not least, post-production. We select collaborators and partner studios based on their experience in the industry, their creativity, level of infrastructure, and readiness to work against tight deadlines.
  • We work on high-budget projects for leading publishers.
  • We have completed the greatest number of dubbing projects in Poland over the last few years.
  • We cooperate with studios across Europe and in the United States.
  • We have the largest base of voices, movie stars, and TV celebrities in Poland.

WE WORK WITH THE BEST RESOURCES FOR INDUSTRY MAJORS

LQA

Our Testing Lab provides top-notch linguistic quality assurance services (LQA) of games. The team of testers is located and managed from our Warsaw office, which ensures that confidential game code is safe, especially if the title is still in development.

Why ROBOTO?

Linguistic tests run from beta to master versions on the following platforms: PC, PS3, X360, iOS, Android and PS Vita. Next generation consoles from Microsoft and Sony will soon be added to the list.
  • Data security – we have locate our Test Lab in an isolated area of the office. Access to Roboto’s premises is controlled by a special proximity card system, and only authorized personnel can enter the Lab. Two independent CCTV camera systems are installed both in the office and by the entrances to the building. Also, two broadband services from two independent providers are available in our office.
  • Streamlined communication between teams of translators and testers working on the same project.
  • Teams of translators have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with games before they start their localisation process, additionally they can provide useful feedback to the LQA teams during tests.
