We understand that effective games testing is critical to success and we know that a truly local and thoroughly immersive experience is paramount to gamers worldwide.
With dedicated testing studios across Asia, Europe and North America, we provide fully integrated Localization Quality Assurance (LQA) solutions, tailored to our client’s needs. Whether expertise is required for small casual mobile games, AAA blockbusters, for consoles or for the latest in virtual and augmented reality systems, we are here to help ensure that players are immersed in a truly local experience.
Games are developed in multiple languages simultaneously with the original version. In this complex production environment, translations and voice over recordings are being produced without the benefit of the game itself being available. At the last phase of production, prior to the content going live, we are relied upon to help ensure that our client’s products are free from language related bugs and defects. We partner with some of the industry’s leading gaming developers and publishers, delivering expertise and an expansive range of LQA offerings including:
- Localization testing
- Play through on localized languages
- General functionality and implementation testing on localized languages
- Localization compliance testing verifying hardware manufacturer terminology and naming conventions
- Stand-alone linguistic reviews
- Manual and printed material checks
At Keywords Studios, all of our LQA testers are trained to the highest standards and are both native speakers and passionate video gamers.
