General InformationCrisis Action is a multiplayer online e-sports shooter in which players unite into teams and compete against each other in real time. The game contains many types of weapons, locations and scenes for plot development. The game is recognized as one of the best in its genre.
Project ManagementWe translated the game from Chinese into Russian. The developers had requirements regarding the length of lines and correspondence of terminology. In addition, a feature of the localization included an 18+ age rating, which, on the one hand, removed some limitations, but at the same time imposed requirements on the style of the game’s language. Moreover, the customer did not have a glossary prepared for the project, so work on the localization began with creating a current term base that could be used not only for translating the base text, but also for working on the updates.
- Line length limitations.
- 18+ age rating.
- Lack of a glossary.
- Large variety of weapon types, including rare weaponry.
