WLUK Event – The Legend of Women in Localization: Gaming of Our Time
November 12 @ 6:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Once upon a time, arcades would be the place to meet up and play games together. Today, more gamers than ever are connected virtually, online. Introducing translation to games takes inclusion and discovery to the next level. Video game localization was born.
Video Games Localization is a relatively new discipline that has rapidly conquered a very important position in the localization industry, with new players introducing innovative tools, technologies and processes that range from Game Culturalization to the use of Machine Translation and innovative Project Management Workflows.
Our wizards will take over the floor to share their knowledge and their experiences with the attendees, and discuss the latest and most exciting trends in this field.
