Game Translation



Translating – if it's not done right – can be a risky business.

As well as words that have multiple meanings, there are also cultural connotations with certain phrases that can have an adverse effect on the message you're trying to communicate. Similarly, there's the risk that your intended meaning will be lost if you attempt to directly translate from one language to another, as the task is rarely a simple case of swapping words from the mother tongue into its target equivalent, or vice-versa.

Game Translation

At the beginning of 2011, Rosetta Translation Shanghai started to  build on existing expertise to make games and software a key area of development for the following 5 years.

Game industry and game translation
Game industry has become a major new industry in the late 20th and early 21st century, with the continuous progress and rapid development of electronic technology. Whilst the games industry was developing across the world, China’s industry, especially in online gaming, so too also began a meteoric rise. Since the start of the millennium great progress and remarkable achievements have been made.

According to  industry related statistics : in 2009 Chinese online game overseas export revenue reached $ 106 million, a growth of 47.2 percent compared with 2008. By the end of 2009, there were 51 China-made large-scale online games exports to Asia, Europe, Africa, North America and South America.

At the same time, a large number of foreign game companies are optimistic about China’s booming gaming market, and also look forward to exchanges and cooperation with Chinese domestic counterparts. In this context, the importance of professional, efficient game translation services stand out immediately.

However, often due to unfamiliarity with the game production process and specialized software, as well as the lack of relevant experience in translation, currently there are very few professional translation companies who can cooperate fully with game makers for their translation work.
