Game translation in the previous translation market belongs to relatively few, and requires particularly strong expertise. But as the Internet becomes more and more rapid, the game industry is also popping up with many awesome 3A large-scale console games and single-player games.
So what is the future of this industry field in the face of game translation? Will there be a lot of pressure on the work difficulty? WetransTech, a top 50 global language service provider with 20 years of experience in the field, will answer your questions and solve your problems!
Game translation is in high demand in the current translation market. Whether it is foreign games (PC, mobile) stationed in China, they need to be translated into Chinese. And Chinese games (PC, mobile) likewise need to be translated to foreign countries. The game market will produce a large number of games for the market every year, which includes PC and mobile.
But as a translator, when you receive a game translation task, it proves that you need to play the game in depth for 3-7 days immediately. Only when you know the game, you can translate the game more accurately, more completely and more purposefully. It is also important to understand each character characteristic, skill details, how to start, etc.
A lot of jargon that needs to be communicated with the developer. The game translation industry, to say that it is easy is really easy, hard is also really quite difficult. But this depends on the translator's talent for the game and his or her reserve of expertise.
Every translator needs to deeply understand that translation is not to say that the statement is complete and logical to translate out even if the task is completed, if you do not take into account the local cultural development, the meaning of each sentence and some common local vocabulary, then this can only be called "pure translation", if to put it bluntly, it is better than machine translation. How about a machine translation?
Finally, I wish every translator the best of luck.
