About the project:
The client sent the game texts of different platforms(like PC/Steam, PS3, Wii U, PlayStation Vita) to us for translation. The Japanese localization
kit for Castle Storm is is a simple .xls sheet, and quite self-explanatory. The first column is reserved for notes. Use it freely for communication with the dev team.
The second column has the string ’castlestorm’ for each lines that should be translated. Lines that don’t have that string in the second column shouldn’t be translated.
The third column contains the string keys, please leave them unchanged.The fourth column contains the English text. The rest column was meant to contain the translated text.
We selected the pros and game expertise translator
who had translated /XBox Time-splitter/ XBox Time-splitter 2/XBox Hitman 2/Samurai II to work on this project.
To ensure the translation consistency, we created a Translation Memory (TM) and maintain the TM along with a terminology list, by applying the TM, it will be easier and faster for future game release and updates.
CCJK asked the translators twice to carefully follow the Terminology and game instructions before starting the translation. Always remember to report any inquiries and unclear vocabularies (As the new release of the game always short and brief, it seems very complicated without any context.) during translation. We will prepare a QA form for help.
When the first around of the translation get done, CCJK strictly follow the quality guidelines of American Translation Association (ATA) and each of the projects will be edited by a 2nd editor and proofread by a third party with profound game knowledge, hence high quality can be guaranteed.
The QA specialist checked the completed translation before delivery. He/she emphasized on checking if the translator followed the client instructions, such as the maximum length, parameter strings, and terms consistency.
