We are delighted to see how our native gamedev develops, more and more games in different genres appear, their quality grows. Strategic Mind is a quite known franchise of the wargame strategies in the World War II set.
Translation of any historical-based game always requires heavy background preparation. When we talk about World War, it’s not enough to just open a browser and get the first Wiki page. The storyline, characters, naming, description – everything should be double-checked in many resources. We also asked for a consultancy from several veterans and current military representatives about specific military terms.
In addition, military game strategies are usually heavily based on the user interface and numerous descriptions, details, modifiers, etc. This is a large amount of text, in which the player should not get lost — texts should be clear, simple, and informative. Even novice players in this genre should have the possibility to start the game easily.
Such tasks require more than just translation skills. First, translators themselves have to play games to understand what works and how. Secondly, you also need to have a test group with which you can experiment and monitor the level of immersion, readability of texts, etc.
We have all of this, and we use our tools effectively.
Working on this part of the Strategic Mind series was a pleasure for us, and we are certain that the experience we gained here will be used in other strategies as well.
