General InformationOcean Blitz is an online strategy game in which the player can take on the role of fleet commander and participate in battles. The developers tried to recreate military operations in detail to facilitate immersion into the game’s world. You can come up with your own tactics in the game, capture enemy resources, and develop your character.
Project ManagementOur team localized the game from Chinese into Russian. It took roughly 30 days to translate the base text. The translator and editor studied the game to learn the mechanics, get to grips with the terminology, and figure out how to properly convey the atmosphere of Ocean Blitz. We also paid particular attention to the names of ships and weapons: as part of their work on the translation, our experts made use of specialized literature and references.
- Line length limitations.
- Difficulties in translating ship and weapon names.
- Requirement to preserve the game’s atmosphere.
- Use of formal form of address to the player.
