General Information

Shadow Fight 2 is the sequel to the celebrated game Shadow Fight. The players fight a number of enemies, equip their characters with various weapons and rare armor sets, and learn dozens of hand-to-hand combat techniques. The combat animations are very realistic, and the game also features RPG elements.

Project Management

We receive text in three languages: Russian, English, and German. We use English as the source language when translating into all other languages.

A dedicated project manager has been attached to the customer to actively answer any questions and who is familiar with the client’s requirements. These requirements include certain restrictions on the length of strings in the translated text.

At first, we received the core text for translation, and now we are receiving marketing-related additions once or twice a week. These assignments must be completed very proactively because the players are waiting for information about new promos and offers!

Project Characteristics

  • The text received from the client is in three languages at once: Russian, German, and English.
  • Translation of marketing materials.
  • String length limitations.
