Different games and game genres often have their very own terminology; with words and phrases that only exist in that particular field. It can be anything from flop and river in Poker to frags in Counterstrike. The players themselves are well versed in the terminology, and those who play a game for the first time can often find good descriptions of the game in the manual or on the website. Part of the charm of games is that there are no boundaries. You can release the same game in different markets and the Internet gathers players from all over the world. However, many games need translating, often their manual or website only, but sometimes also the software itself.
Global Text works with some of the largest gaming companies and has a team of translators who specialise in gaming translations and gaming. For poker and casino games, it is essential that the translator is well versed in both the game and the particular gaming terminology in his or her language. In some cases, it may be more appropriate to translate a word or expression in accordance with the terminology used by the players themselves, rather than to go with what is traditionally used by the company.
