VMC Game Labs


Mobile QA Services: Where Speed and Quality Converge

Mobile Translation and Localization QA Services: Say What You Mean, Mean What You Say

The global reach of the new mobile application stores means you have a world of opportunities to increase your customer base and your revenues. Regional dialects, idioms, jargon, tone, formality and style all must be addressed to ensure that game characters remain “in character,” and that users enjoy your content, engaging without awkward or faulty translations. In addition, greater use of handheld devices means that different screen sizes, resolutions and densities require modifications so that text displays correctly on every device. VMC Game Labs combines extensive mobile experience with specific translation and localization testing methodologies to ensure linguistic and contextual accuracy and consistency within your game, across multiple cultures and geographies:


・ VMC uses native speakers at all stages in the delivery process with different translators assigned to initial translation, editing, and then localization QA, to ensure that a minimum of three different native speakers have reviewed the game for contextual issues.
・ Project leads work with clients to prepare a comprehensive style guide, which is distributed to all translators and testers before translation begins. Project leads are accountable for ongoing oversight and review to ensure consistent adherence to the guidelines.
・ VMC uses a wide network of in-country and in-house translators to provide translation services in 46 languages. Translators and testers fluent in additional languages can be readily sourced through our specialized worldwide workforce operations.
・ To ensure better localization quality assurance testing, we conduct testing on actual hardware, including mobile devices, in one of our secure, state-of-the-art testing facilities. By testing the text on the hardware, rather than just reviewing text files, testers can identify text cutoffs, truncations and other issues that are often missed.


If you’re seeking to increase the global presence and the quality of your game for players in locations around the world, we speak your language.
