Actual details

Is translation by itself enough? Why localize? Is translation by itself enough? Why localize?

All other languages→Japanese All other languages→Japanese

When it comes to deploying games and entertainment overseas, it goes without saying that translation by itself is not enough. All around the world, different locales not only use different languages, but also have varying customs and cultures. So along with translation from language to language, adjustments need to be made to accommodate the culture and conventions of each locale.

Attention to detail

In some cases, due to cultural differences, a translation that is too literal may unintentionally become offensive to others, causing backlash in the community.

Active Gaming Media:Across all types of content and languages, we aim to provide localization that is not only appropriate, but thet also properly conveys the charm of the original production.

POINT:01 Translators

Active Gaming Media employs staff from over 20 nationalities, as well as over 5,000 freelance translators within Japan and overseas. Within this wide range of translators comes a wide range of interests and specialties, allowing us to assign the most appropriate translator for virtually any task.

POINT:02 Game-like translation

When localizing a game, all its characters along with the world-view of the game need to be taken into account. We provide translations that preserve the personalities of each and every character, along with translations that perfectly fit the world-view, ensuring that the charm of the original game is not lost.

Attention to detail

As an example, let's look at the following sentence: "You're in my house now." The English word "house" can have different meanings depending on the context. A normal interpretation might be "家," meaning a house that someone lives in. However, if this was a strategy game where troops are preparing to go into battle, it might mean a political or organizational house, which would be translated as "戦場." Our deep knowledge of the content is our key to providing correct and accurate translations that perfectly fit each game.

POINT:03 Localization of UI/UX

At Active Gaming Media, we also support UI/UX localization. Upon request, we can offer insight into trends and expectations of target users overseas, allowing optimization of visual design through things like button placement and button size.

POINT:04 Localization of anime and manga

Making use of our experience in game localization, Active Gaming Media also supports localization of anime and manga (including DTP). We provide translations by native speakers who are passionate fans of the media.
