A Taste of Game Translation: With or Without Context

Come check out a lighthearted, hands-on workshop that demonstrates the pitfalls and dilemmas of video game translation, and in what ways it draws or differs from other genres of entertainment and technical translation. We plan to have a Japanese and English game apiece for you to explore and experiment with, as well as try your hand translating. Bringing a notebook PC will help you translate and analyze the games. A smartphone or tablet may help you play the featured games or do background research. Ask us anything game localization!
