    Alexis Biro (Terra Localizations) Localization QA: Yay of Nay? Localization QA: Yay of Nay?

    We will discuss the evolution of video game 'translation' with historical errors and examples and how localization is the process we know and use today. We will elaborate on current processes, best practices, common mistakes and why Linguistic Quality Assurance is so important, and how context is key for your localization team. The presentation will show what to detect and how to analyze if the localization work was done properly. We will also showcase studies as examples of these items, of both Indie and AAA games.

    The audience will receive:

    A model LQA Sheet + Query sheet examples + Bug Report sheet 

    and useful links to guarantee the best localization possible for their games.

    Culture: The Key To Outsourcing Success

    Culture: The Key To Outsourcing Success

    You don’t want a toxic outsourcing relationship.

    There are great benefits of hiring remote teams for development/ artwork work. However, many times you see companies failing to get their million-dollar ideas executed by WFH teams properly.

    In most cases, if an outsourcing studio is capable enough yet fails the project, it’s usually due to one problem: A organizational cultural mismatch between the client and the outsourcing team.

    Culture varies from region to region and in most instances, impacts the way people work. If two parties from completely different cultures fail to understand this key concept, then most likely their project will suffer from communication problems and ultimately fail.
