¡Hello! How are you doing? Hope great! My name is Darío and I've been translating games since 2010 and playing them since I was a little lad! I am also the CEO of Game on Words, where we work day in and day out with games, both translating/localizing and designing them!

I've translated lots of AAA titles for some of the biggest videogame companies in the world, and I absolutely love what I do. If you need to ask me anything whatsoever, please don't hesitate to ask!

Games are what drove me to learn English, and, later, Japanese.

Studying computer science and its application to the creation of digital media in University gave me a deep insight into what goes into creating a video game.
The many translations I have done in the past years, on the other hand, have taught me how to focus on the consumer and their enjoyment of the final product.

I have been translating games since 2014. My expertise is fantasy and sci-fi in the settings such as roll-playing, MMO and shooter. When I localize a game, I try to study it as much as possible for context and to achieve the quality level that leads the players into thinking the game was developed in Japanese originally.

Other than game text, I localize supportive material, such as websites, marketing and anything else that promotes the game.
