Reach new markets

The gaming industry is booming and increasingly popular across all age groups in a lot of countries. Best games of all time need to be localized to build a globalization strategy. Saudisoft offers localization of games and translation services by specialized gamers in the games localization industry, as no one can translate specialized games content better than gamers themselves.
 

Localizing a game is very different than localizing any other media product, mainly because it’s an “interactive” piece of art that you need to be hearing, watching AND interacting with at the same time. All of these aspects need to be in harmony because if you’re missing one part, the flow that the player is immersed in would be broken. 

 

To avoid that, you need a localization partner who is passionate about games, as well as languages and cultures. At Saudisoft, your game will go through a workflow that guarantees the best results in terms of fluidity, consistency, local feel, and of course, accuracy. Also, games localization is responsible for approaching the best norms for names, language, terminology, dialogue, to reach the best output of the game.

Games should be localized rather than translated, video game localization takes care of cultural aspects and linguistic details. Saudisoft’s localization team concentrates more on localization details that will achieve gamer satisfaction to provide the best experience of the game and to ensure that the game speaks directly to the player.

- Exposure to broader markets which will widen sales opportunity.
- Improve customer satisfaction and user experience through cultural similarity.
