About me

Korean is his mother tongue, and he mostly translates from English or Japanese into Korean. Game localization is one of his major specialties; in fact, his work experience covers a couple of area of a respective industry: game development, game-specific business and game localization. He also has experienced several genres such as MMORPG, mobile game, online games and mobile console games as a game developer so his strength is that he is quite familiar with a general procedure of game development even though each company or each project could have a unique process. In regard to game localization, he has been working as not only a translator but also a project manager for a meaningful period of time, and this helps him grasp what most localization coordinators/agencies dealing with game contents want.
