CALL FOR PAPERS
LocWorld Silicon Valley
Game Localization Round Table
October 14, 2015

The full-day Game Localization Round Table is the most important video game localization conference in the world. It is open to clients (game developers and game publishers) and to qualifying vendors (game localization specialists).

The round table consists of several distinct sessions presented by experts in game localization. Are you such an expert?

We are looking for 30 minute presentations and thought-provoking questions from real life implementations that can then be discussed by the attendees. Some of the topics we would like to cover on this occasion are:

  • Glocalization
  • Internationalization of design and production
  • Localization testing approaches
  • Mobile games: casual work?
  • MMO localization: Always on
  • Localization and community management
  • The challenges of games for new players
  • More localization for tough financial times
  • Learn from your localization post-mortems
  • Portable games: less words, more languages
  • The new frontier for game localization
  • Case-studies: projects, tools, processes, staff
  • It’s all about your workflow
  • Tools that do safe time & money
  • History and never-again mistakes
  • Making game localization partnering work

We are also open to other topics so please give us your suggestions.
