General Information

The Land of Oz is a match-3 browser game where players can experience a truly magical environment, meet the characters from the famous story of Oz, and help the main character return home. The game has a great variety of magical elements, awesome quests, and many levels of different difficulty.

Project Management

At first, our team translated the game from Russian into English, then we localized it into French and German. The game’s main feature is a need to use the established translations for names and unique items from L. Frank Baum’s novel in the French and German versions. Our team is still actively working on this project, quickly and efficiently translating updates.

Project Characteristics

  • Translation from Russian to English, then into the other languages.
  • The need to use the established translations for existing terminology.
  • Special fairytale atmosphere.
