Project ManagementThe customer had a sound approach to the challenge of localization. We were presented with images of all the characters, plus screenshots from the game so that our translators could understand the context of one phrase or another. We translated it from English, diligently observing the limits on string length.
- The main requirement was a limit on string length.
- Our translators and editors played the game to get into its atmosphere.
- The customer provided screenshots for individual phrases so that the translators could understand the context.
