As eSports are now becoming more and more international and have officially entered sports events, the demand for eSports translation market is also increasing. E-sports are games, so are e-sports translation and game translation the same? Or what are the differences?
E-sports belongs to the game, but in the world of translation, there is still a fundamental difference. Game translation refers to the translation and proofreading of the characters, backstory, equipment and so on from the game development period.
E-sports translation does not require translators to start translating from the development stage. Rather, the game has already taken shape and entered the tournament, and the translator needs to understand and control the game itself before he or she can do a good job of eSports translation.
In the process of eSports translation, the translator must choose more creative activities and have a strong practicality, and constantly refine himself in the process of translation, only then can he meet the different practical needs.
And we have to understand all aspects of translation in this, it is best to insist on continuous translation every day, so that we can implicitly understand the current situation, so as to improve their own translation ability.
E-sports translation has a lot of terminology, and translators need to understand what each term means. This can be learned through commentary and some relevant anchors in order to not cause learning errors within the industry.
The translator also needs to understand that each game service area has different names for characters, skills, and equipment, so the translator must also have a reserve of knowledge to consolidate the cultural differences between countries.
WetransTech believes that eSports translation is something that needs to rely on one's love for the industry, and also to be able to capture the real-time dynamics of the Internet faster. E-sports is an emerging industry with great prospects for development and a great demand for translation.
However, when choosing translation services for the eSports industry, it is important to work with a regular, professional translation company to avoid being duped into errors.
