Hi all,

I'm just starting to go into the computer game translation field and wondered where I can obtain glossaries of Sony and Nintendo terminology.

Does anyone have any ideas or experience in this area that they'd be willing to share?

No idea, but... Nov 29, 2008

You could get latest issues of video-games magazines for the languages that you are working in, it could be quite helpful. Even better if you could spend at least a couple hours playing the game you are localizing (though that is not always possible of course.)

Ask your clients Nov 30, 2008

Platform glossaries are not available to the general public, but clients usually provide them with every assignment. They are updated regularly, so remember to always ask for the latest versions.

HTH,

My experience is that the client usually provides the glossaries that need to be followed.

You can set up a glosary prior to translation by using Google search.
