"Klondike: The Lost Expedition" localization for Vizor Interactive
Klondike: The Lost Expedition is a game for social networks in which a fearless youth heads to Blue Peaks Valley to search for his father, a gold prospector on the frigid North American frontier. He must build and develop a station, start farming, and produce and trade food and materials needed for the long, exciting expedition ahead.
Developer Vizor Interactive decided to go beyond the “standard” languages (English and Russian) to include localizations into Spanish, French, Italian, German and Brazilian Portuguese.
Updates and additions for the game are a common occurrence, so the job of Alconost was to both perform a careful localization of the game and quickly translate new strings as new content is added.
We translated all the text seen by users in the game – the interface, dialogs, character names, place names, descriptions, and quests. Localization was performed exclusively by professional, native-speaker translators.
After the translation process was completed, we performed linguistic testing with real players. Their feedback and requests were implemented by the localization team.
The game is a hit and has received great feedback from players. Development is still ongoing: the developer is releasing weekly updates, which we translate into all five languages. We hope that collaboration with Vizor Interactive will continue on future projects to bring joy to players in countries with underserved gaming markets worldwide!
