Our translators are the best!

Translation of games is a complex task that requires knowledge in a lot of related areas. Our translators are certified professionals for whom no mission is impossible.

Specific Features of Game Localization

Successful promotion of games in foreign markets is a challenging task. Often, such projects are to be implemented within a limited time frame, which requires discipline, responsibility for the final result, and expertise.

It's impossible to localize modern games, which often weigh in at dozens of gigabytes, single-handedly. In addition, at the first stages, translators should work together with the developers of the game, as some texts are integrated into the graphics (bitmap), and some episodes may have to be adapted with a due regard to the realities of a certain country.

Areas of Expertise
























Game Localization Process

The difficulties of game translation into Russian include the need to place words or phrases within buttons, menu items, fields, or windows even if the number of characters is much larger than in the source text.

Localization process also involves voice-over of dialogues taking into account articulation of a character (dubbing), translation of all printed materials related to the game, and much more.

Our company provides all types of game translation services: box&docs, partial, and full localization. The last stage of all game projects is a full-scale linguistic testing, proofreading, and editing of all types of translations from English into Russian. Thus, we guarantee the absence of errors in the localized version of the game.

Questions about game translation services


What subjects of video and audio can you translate?


In Prima Vista you will find professionals on any subjects. Translations of technical or fictional audio tracks and videos, advertisements, presentations or tutorials — all this is within our scope of abilities!

What languages does your translation agency work with?


We translate into more than 120 world's languages, and language combinations are literally unlimited. The languages our agency work with include major languages of Europe, Asia and America as well as the languages spoken in the remotest parts of the globe. If at our website there is no language you need, do not lose hope. Just send us an inquiry and we shall find a proper specialist.

Do you use programs for machine-assisted (automatic) translation?


By no means. Current state of translation software does not allow to ensure any acceptable translation quality. Moreover – it is much easier to translate a text from scratch than to edit it after machine translators. As of today, professional translators are the only option. Only professionally translated text will meet all quality criteria, the most important of which are: adequate rendering of sense, proper terminology as well as preservation of cultural and social nuances of source text.

What are the professionals involved in the translation of games?


This type of works involves translators as well as qualified editors-directors. They modify and improve decrypted text and bring it to the final version. After that, professional doubles come in, if necessary. If the project team is large enough, it is supervised by a manager who ensures timely communication and compliance with deadlines.

Do you check technical translation before delivery to a customer?


Yes, certainly we do. All materials are subject to editing and proofreading. Prima Vista agency practices technical translation multilevel checking, which allows us to eliminate any factual, spelling and stylistic mistakes.
