Hello everyone!

An agency has asked me to complete a videogames translation test using the "official" terminology for each platform...

I have found the glossary for PS2 but I've been unable to find the ones for Xbox and Gamecube, does anyone know where could I find them?

Thank you very much!

Kira

Ask the agency May 15, 2006

I think the agency should provide you with the needed glossaries, so if I were you, I would ask them.

Product websites are usually the best resource May 15, 2006

XBox is a Microsoft product, so I assume that XBox terminology is included in the Microsoft glossaries. I think they're not available online anymore, but there have been several threads here in the past about them. If you search the fora for "Microsoft glossaries", you may find some info on them.

Optionally, here's Xbox's official website: http://www.xbox.com/

GameCube is a Nintendo product. Maybe you could search Nintendo's website http://www.nintendo.com/systemsgcn to check if they have glossaries available, like Microsoft?

Hope that helpsicon_smile.gif

Careful with resources on the web May 15, 2006

Hello lady,

since I work in the industry, I would suggest you have the agency deal with the client and have them provide all terminology. These terms and phrases are often updated and it is sensitive material because if only one of them is wrong, the video game company might fail their software submission and that will delay shipment of the end product.

I suggest you tell them you'll do your best but I would have them sign a waiver that you cannot be held liable (just to be on the safe side).

Good luck,
Cordula

Thank you Cordula May 16, 2006

Thank you very much Cordula, I contacted the agency and they told me that they couldn't provide me with the glossaries because it was only a test and that would violate their "confidenciality agreement" with their clients.

However I was lucky and another agency agreed to send me the glossaries without any problemicon_smile.gif
