ABOUT GAME GLOBAL

Based on 20 years of successful experience running localization events and ten years of hosting the Games Localization Round Table, the organizers of the LocWorld Conference have created an open and honest event dedicated to video game globalization. 

Game Global was designed as an event where stakeholders from the video game globalization industry (including text and audio translation and localization, localization and functional QA) can meet and share their endeavors, successes, best practices and research in a collaborative and transparent manner. 

We focus on three main areas:

• Localization

• Localization testing

• Functional testing

Localization and functional testing were recently added as specific content types to our conferences since we found that, as opposed to text and audio localization, there are not many chances for video game LQA and FQA stakeholders to get together and discuss their specific issues and best practices.

Our objective is to offer a well-rounded conference where attendees can talk with fellow video game globalizers, discover the latest trends from our industry and learn from the experts.
