Software & Games Localization

This course is designed to familiarize students with concepts, processes and the environment of the modern localization industry. Specifically, we will concentrate on localizing desktop, mobile, and web-based computer applications and games. We will be especially interested in how to handle strings and how to process them for translation. We will look at software and games localization from several different angles: as a localization manager within a company, a project manager within an agency, a localization engineer within an agency, and as a translator. The assignments and discussions will be designed to get students thinking about various issues from these different points of view.
