What It’s All About
You love the written word. Not only in your native tongue, but you are so interested in languages that you have taken the time and effort to become proficient in a second language, understanding not only the language but the distinct cultural differences as well. Your knowledge and interest in the games industry has enabled you to experience successful games in multiple cultures and acknowledge the acute differences that occur in translation that enable their cross cultural successes. You are part of the exciting experience of carrying the flame of Firefall to Europe.
A Typical Day
You begin your day by reviewing the new content for Firefall and begin to translate assets associated to the game. Coordinating with the US team, you check with the onsite Localization Manager for new content and meet with the Community Team for any reported bugs on the forum. You find some voice scripts in your inbox needing review and translation, making sure to keep the original context of the dialog. Your day concludes with a team call with the Director of Global Integration assuring the success of the translations, both in terms of language and cultural fit.
Who You Work With
Your Localization Team will be a vital part of creating the European Firefall experience. You will work closely with the Localization Editor to ensure accuracy and consistency of translations is being maintained while the local Community Team will work hand-in-hand with you to make sure that any feedback on the European forums is translated and sent to the developers.
