7 Days, 18 Languages: How We Localized Xsolla


Xsolla is a billing platform for payments and game transactions. Game developers and publishers use Xsolla services to receive funds from users of over 600 different payment systems. The company’s client base spans the globe and includes Valve (Steam), Aeria Games, BigPoint Games, Gameforge, Ankama Games, Gaijin Entertainment, GoodGame Studios, Snail Games and many others.

Our job at Alconost Translations was to localize Xsolla services into 18 languages:

  • Arabic
  • Bulgarian
  • Chinese (Simplified)
  • Chinese (Traditional)
  • Czech
  • French
  • German
  • Hebrew
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Polish
  • Portuguese (Brazilian)
  • Romanian
  • Spanish
  • Thai
  • Turkish
  • Vietnamese

We localized apps for three target platforms in parallel: for Android, iOS, and PC. Working from existing English and Russian localizations, we performed the new localizations with “on-the-fly” corrections, finishing the job in just one week.

Together with Xsolla, we implemented a method for rapid multilingual localization that enabled our client to unlock the market potential of billions of users worldwide.

“Localizing payment interfaces is one of the most critical parts of the equation when entering a new market.

Thanks to help from Alconost, we were able to adapt Xsolla payment interfaces for over a hundred countries at an incredibly quick pace.

What’s more, high-quality translations help users to master the interface more quickly, which means more payments.

The importance of an excellent localization is impossible to overstate.”
