In this session we will discuss the growing popularity of non-gendered translation. As the social movement of non-gender association gains more voice, we are seeing more non-binary characters and avatar options in games along with more requests from game developers to create gender-neutral translations. We will discuss the challenges it faces — whether social, political or grammatical — and the obligations we as translators and language service providers have to our clients to assist in this development.

 

Takeaways

Attendees will hear about “lessons learned” from actual experience with language-neutral games; learn how to make language quality assurance and testing more streamline; and hear a holistic scholarly approach to language neutrality.
