Post Re: Introduce yourself once more

oh hello there

I'm Cassy. I write things, I make noises some people enjoy hearing, I work in the video game industry.

For the interested: my bread and butter is ultra extreme doom -- Khanate and Halo are perpetually on my playlists -- alongside jazz and industrial, as well as literally every other music genre in existence. No exceptions. (Subgenres need not apply.)

Not much else to say, really.

Welcome! :) There aren't that many people who can claim enjoying "literally every other music genre in existence"; I take it, though, that you don't like them all per se, but rather find some interesting artists everywhere? What exactly do you do in the video game business? I've been thinking about trying to get a foot into software (particularly game) localisation; originally, I intended to translate literature, but I came to the conclusion that I wouldn't be able to tackle the general conditions in that field of work, although I'm qualified.

Post Re: Introduce yourself once more

No, I find a LOT of interesting artists everywhere. (Caveat: I find more uninteresting artists everywhere.) I can say I listen to a fairly unrepresentative "chunk" of any given genre, but it's a large enough chunk that it outstrips the average music library of a given genre's average fan.

As for my job... well, I work as a moderator for a small Chinese web game company, and I'm working on becoming an independent developer along with a Greek friend, who is responsible for indie game Private Infiltrator. Pretty nice stealth game.

EDIT: Totally didn't respond to the last bit of your post! Whoops!

Translation is a tough field to get into. You have to work VERY cheap, or work VERY fast with EXTREMELY good output. And videogames tend to have loads of text, so working fast isn't easy. And to go cheap enough is pretty much working as a freelancer where they pay you in single-digit cents.

There is an untapped market for it in indie games -- contact some smaller indie folks about translation. I'd be able to at least do EFIGS (English French Italian German Spanish) translation for the best response, with extra bonus monies for Portuguese, Russian and Chinese.

If you meant working for a translation company, I wouldn't get your hopes up. Most of them are low-paying jobs that demand volume translated rather than quality of translation. Most game companies have their own in-house translation teams (i.e.: Atlus JP games are translated by Atlus USA) for this very reason, which only makes the situation worse. Most of the good translation companies are in Russia, translating Eastern European titles for the Western market. There's something of a market in Japan for translating doujin titles, as well. Issue with these is location -- you have to be in these places in order to translate things.

If you're dead set on joining a company, start with companies like Paradox Interactive, Akella, 1C, Nicalis, etc -- smaller, usually northern or eastern European companies focused on B-grade titles. They get a lot of interesting stuff, volume is usually rather low, and quality is in high demand. Languages you'll deal with most often are EFIGS, Japanese, Russian, Swedish, Norweigian, Ukranian, Polish. I'd get expertise in at least three of those, including a decent knowledge of idiomatic expressions and popular culture references in two of them. Consider looking into dialects of the ones you focus on, as well -- that'll help immeasurably with more story-heavy pieces that include "country bumpkin" or "urban gangsta" types.

Thank you very much for your extensive answer! That's very helpful and gives me some fruit for thought... It seems that, ultimately, translation in the game industry isn't so much better than it is in literature, maybe even worse from what you've described. My bad, studying something this absurd without knowing what to do with it afterwards! I do have a good grasp of three of the languages mentioned, plus some more bits and pieces that could be expanded, but surely this alone won't be enough. On the other hand, my experience with - and interest in - literature will prove quite helpful in story-heavy games. An alternative I've come up with would be to translate films, be it for a dubbed version or for subtitles, but I have virtually no idea who does that and how I could get such a job.

Hails from the black abyss, I used to come here back in the early 00s under the name carnography (if my memory serves me well enough). Name's Jake, from Arsetralia.
