Collaborating asynchronously with remote teams around the globe, supporting simship products with massive language bodies and continuous translation needs, accounting for projects with ever-shifting scope and due dates – making localization for modern game products seems be as overwhelmingly demanding as it is cross-functionally diverse.

The panelists of this session will offer insight on what practices have emerged in the metric-driven environment of game publishing, discuss the role of process automation and machine translation, and share their expectations on what the future of game localization will look like.

Local at A Global Scale – Beyond Localization
