Jennifer ODonnell posted a topic in Translating & freelancingThank you everyone who checked out the webinar! I could have gone on and on about game localization and the considering culture. Let me know if you have any questions! I'm sure myself and others would be happy to answer them. Here are the sildes, there are also 2 slides you didn't see which have a list of other useful resources and further reading if you're interested: Slides: Cultural aspects of video game localization.pdf Webinar: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/game-localization-cultural-aspects
Continuing the conversation in this topic: As for a two-face website, or any number of faces, it's a simple concept, really. Say you work with Game Translations and with the Automation industry. You could create two "tabs" in your website, which the client can easily choose from as soon as he enters your landing page. After choosing his interest, the website slides to whichever side was chosen, the light fades in and out, a background image is revealed and all the relevant information you want to share on that area of expertise pops in. You can (and should) create separate themes for them, each with unique fonts and color palettes that best represent the field. In game translations, I chose a mix of orange and gold, for feel and personal reasons, and I'd choose a metallic and futuristic theme for translations in the automation field. For background images you could have a screenshot from a hypothetical scenario, an ideal picture of the first thing coming to mind whenever you think "game" or "automation. For gaming, it varies a lot on the genre and universe, but for automation, you could have a futuristic factory with glass-like polishing and 9-axis robots, producing a neat-looking exoskeleton suit. Add an instrumental music in the back. Have you heard Beowulf's theme? Something with those beats could fit nicely to the automation field, and anything epic-ish would work great on the gaming field. I believe that pumping music would be more adequate no matter the topic, considering you want to get your clients excited and ready to hire you in a moment's notice. Except if you are specializing in Yoga, you may want to revisit that thought... In the website's borders you can create a 3D-looking interface, which alters and slides as the user progresses through your content. The possibilities are endless, and there are many ways to do it. Sure, that's the peak of website design that I'm talking about. You don't need to go nowhere near that. But if I were to make an agency, I'd want THAT to be my goal for an website. For your personal purposes, you can start small and build up the heat as you learn more about the subject and cement a persona.
I'm a Brazilian translator with over six years of experience and I have been using SmartCAT as my CAT tool almost exclusively for the last three months. I work with translations to and from Portuguese (Brazilian and European), English (US & UK), Spanish, Dutch and German. I work with most fields, including finance, education, manuals, websites, books and business plans. At this exact moment I am translating and subtitling movies. I also have translated games previously, with one of them being available on Steam right now, as well as high profile apps and websites. I have an established reputation at one of the biggest Freelancer websites and I have also worked for clients through SmartCAT.
