Video Game Translation Services

With 2.2 billion gamers across the globe generating $108.9 billion in game revenues in 2017—an increase of $7.8 billion, or 7.8%, from the previous year—the gaming market just keeps getting bigger. While your mobile or video game may be globally available, it may not be global-ready. With their global appeal, the next person to download or buy your mobile or video game could be located anywhere around the world, so localization for key market segments is essential for global growth. Using our mobile app and video game translation services, you can optimize your apps and games for a great user experience in over 300 languages.

Video Game Dialogue Translation

Together with our parent company Lionbridge, Gengo has a community of game testers and seasoned translators who have great experience translating video game dialogue. With a specialization in linguistics, our translators analyze your game dialogue both for the semantic meaning of the text, tone, and artistic prose.

In-game Menus, Buttons, and Tutorial Translation

Our Video Game Localization Team understands that when it comes to game development, user experience is just as important as impeccable grammar for developers. Our translators can translate your in-game menus, overlays, and tutorials to provide the best gaming experience for your users in their native language.

Mobile App string translation

Your mobile application should be able to handle text, audio files, numbers, currency, and graphics in ways appropriate to the locales where your application is used. The app strings are used by the app to display user interface elements and information to the user during an operation.

Mobile App description translation

App descriptions—an app store optimized product definition—can bring a huge amount of organic traffic and downloads for your mobile app. While there are multiple elements that can influence your product’s success, the app description is arguably the most important of them all.

SEO content translation

Localization for SEO content can help connect your mobile or video game to a location using the words, terms, and behaviors of an audience in a particular region. Rather than using a generic search term in the hopes that it’s used universally, use the terminology and language of your target audience to better reach your global audience.

Marketing & advertising translation

Advertising and marketing efforts for your mobile or video game build brand awareness and recognition across a particular region or the globe. For an international audience, it’s critical that linguistic and cultural details are understood and incorporated—avoiding embarrassing or potentially offensive communications.

User review translation

For gamers and mobile users, learning what others thought of the product through reading reviews is an important step in the purchase process. Users increasingly see user reviews (as opposed to those made by professionals or critics) as more authentic and trustworthy, leading them more often to make a purchase.
