Video games localisation : posing new challenges to the translator
Mangiron i Hevia, Carme (Dublin City University. Centre for Translation and Textual Studies)

Date: 2006
Abstract: Video games localisation is an emerging type of translation that has deserved very little attention from a translation studies perspective to date. This article discusses what is involved in video game localisation, what assets need to be localised, what the different localisation models are and what translator competence is required in order to localise video games successfully. It also emphasises the need to encourage the study of this new discipline and the training of translators who have the skills and competence required to face the challenges posed by this new translation field.
