FAQ about game translation services

Here are the frequently asked questions about game translation services that we have compiled:

What is the difference between game translation and game localization?

The two terms game translation and game localization are often mentioned by lots of people when learning about translation work. So how can you understand these two terms?

Game translation: The process of translating from the source language into another language while preserving the cultural characteristics of the source language.
Game localization: Adapt all works such as dialogues, scripts, landmarks, etc. from the source language into another language according to the culture of that country. Game translation and game localization are similar since both are the activity of translation into the target language. However, game localization requires in-depth cultural relevance, customs, even new cultures of young people, or important values ​​conceived by the locals.

Obstacles in game and video game translation process

The game translation is an important step that determines the success or failure of an online game. Just a small error in the translation is enough to cause a game to “disappear” when it receives many “dislikes” from gamers.

The game translation process will encounter countless barriers that cause difficulties for translators to complete the most perfect game translation if they fail to handle them. Some obstacles during the game and video game translation process include:

Each game genre uses different words to match the context in the game. Therefore, it requires the translator to grasp and understand the language of each game genre to use the appropriate style for the translation.
Game translation is not simply “word-for-word” translation but also requires timely “creation” suitable for gamers.
The translator must clearly understand the content, instructions, features, and missions of each game or video game in order to translate correctly.

The striking development of the gaming industry and the demand for game and video game translation services nowadays

Since the 2010s, the game industry has gradually taken over a prominent position. In the Asian market, especially in Japan and China, video games are promoted, expanded, and upgraded to best meet the tastes of players. In European countries or in America, game genres are also developed significantly.

According to statistics, the gaming industry is valued at 165 billion dollars in 2020. This number will expectedly increase to nearly 300 billion dollars in the next 5 years.

Therefore, to support players, game publishers have focused on multi-form game development. Users can play games online or offline on diverse devices such as laptops, PCs, tablets, etc. Particularly, in the era of mobile app blasts, game publishers are increasingly focusing on game development and customization on mobile devices (smartphones).

To increase profits, game developers often export games to different countries around the world. The shift in target audience has indirectly boosted the demand for game translation. The reason is that translation is the main step to help players in different countries understand the game content and have the best experience playing the game.

What should be noted when translating English games into Vietnamese and translating Chinese games?

The game translation is a field that requires more elements from translators than conventional translation services. The game translation is not merely a process of translation; it is actually a process of game localization. It means the process of converting in-game language, images, symbols, and many other elements to the target language while ensuring cultural relevance. When translating games from English or Chinese into Vietnamese, the following points should be noted:

  • The storyline of the game has to be highlighted so that the right purpose and spirit of the game can be conveyed.
  • A smooth style that is consistent with the content of the game. It depends on the game genres that different styles shall be used, such as action, role playing, or fantasy games may have a different style than that of puzzle games
  • Translations must be easy to understand and stick to the local culture so that players find it more “intimate” and understandable
  • During the game localization process, it is also important to pay attention to in-game colors, symbols, etc., and perform transformations of such images and colors so they are close to the native culture without losing the meaning or spirit of the game.
  • The translation must closely ensure accuracy in terms of the meaning of the original
  • Ensure the consistency of the elements in the game such as: forms of address, stories, character names, etc.
