After months of designing, coding and testing, your new video game is ready to be launched. What about localizing it for the Italian market?
According to the Italian Interactive Digital Entertainment Association, about 16.7 millions of Italians have played video games in 2020. The turnover of this industry in Italy has been about 2.179 billions of euros in 2020 (21.9% compared to 2019), including both software and hardware (IIDEA 2021).
In video games the user experience is key. To create an immersive world and so enhance it, dialogues should not sound artificial but as if they are really taking place. Having studied both computer game localization and literary translation, being experienced in localizing video games and writing as a hobby (you can find out more about me here), I will make your translated dialogues sound natural and engaging for an Italian audience.
