Our gaming specialists have been providing optimized localization solutions to a wide range of the most influential gaming companies in the global market, such as Nintendo, SEGA, Sony Entertainment, Riot Games, Gameforge, and GAMEVIL COM2US. Since the gaming specialists are always on the lookout for the latest gaming news, they have decided to compile monthly newsletters for you that are packed with the most up-to-date information from the industry.


The International Game Developers Association invited our Gaming Solution Engineer, Santiago de Miguel, to talk about some essential best practices for video game localization. He focused his discussion on four main pillars: time management, communication, consistency, and terminology.  

This is a must-watch if you are a developer or work at a gaming company thinking of localizing their first game because it covers some basic guidelines on planning for a successful global launch.  Stay tuned for upcoming webinars with the IGDA!  



memoQ Day in Seattle on June 1 was a major success with several gaming companies present. Andrew Vestal and Penny Fang from Amazon Games were there, and they talked about their memoQ infrastructure, its complexities, and how they use Amazon AWS to host their TMS.  

Other gaming customers expressed their interest in our brand-new In-Country Review Tool and made some feature suggestions so that the tool can be better tailored to the video game localization industry.  

Attendees also had the chance to meet with a representative from our Business Services Unit and learn more about memoQ's custom add-ons.
