General Information

The developers of Age of Empires II: The Forgotten and Age of Mythology: Extended Edition have brought us a new strategy game. In it, players have the opportunity to play in single-player mode or to compete with other players online. The game contains numerous missions and locations, and the player’s task is to assemble a group of unbeatable mercenaries and win.

Project Management

Our team’s task was to create a Russian localization of the game based on the English version. All the text in the game had to be translated while preserving the style of the original text. We paid particular attention to ensuring consistency in the terminology and atmosphere of each location. We used memoQ translation memory software in working on this project. We also developed a special glossary which will be used in the future for translating the game’s accompanying texts and marketing texts as well.

Project Characteristics

  • Localization of the entire game into Russian.
  • Requirement to save atmosphere and style of the game.
  • memoQ used to maintain consistency in terminology.
