Watch this video and learn what is LE or Localization Engineering using Poly Bridge 🎮 Get ready to level up your knowledge of the localization industry!
Localization Explained is a series from Localization Academy in which we explain localization concepts using video games. Join us on this journey and discover how your favorite games can help you learn a thing or two about localization 😎
What is localization engineering or LE? Let’s take Ploy Bridge as an example, in this simple game, you have to actually use your brain Allah to come up with technical solutions to the problem of getting the vehicles from one side of the bridge to another one. So you have to think about how to use the physics and the things that are at your disposal to create the right bridge. And in a way, this is what localization engineers do for localization projects. So what does that mean practically? It means they’re looking at the requests from the client and the project from a technical perspective to make sure that everything will be working fine. And if we have more technical projects, they are preparing the projects for translation, because translators would not be able to get to the strings that they need to translate. And then once the translation is back, then they put it back. So they let’s say create the localized software or the app.
