General InformationA free to play browser strategy game from Ubisoft Blue Byte, creators of The Settlers series, and an example of the classic German school of strategy games. The users must correctly organize production chains and army building as part of the gaming process. Cooperation with other players is often required for successful advancement, which is why the game lets players join or create their own guilds. The players can also complete many different quests, including quests tied to special events.
Project ManagementWe started working on the game in April 2015. A team of one translator, two editors and a project manager was formed to work on this project. Most of the text had already been translated by the time the game was sent to us.
Our tasks include the translation of new updates, editing text that has already been translated and supporting an up-to-date translation memory. Because the game contains a lot of text, we have to pay special attention to keeping terms consistent.
- The translation is carried out taking the fact that most of the game has been localized before into account.
- Updates are sent regularly, with a usual volume of over 1000 words.
- Special attention is given to the creation and updating of the glossary due to the great size of the game and the many different names of buildings, items and many other in-game objects.
