Video games localization

Localizing video games is an art form. And we’re definitely the artists you’re looking for.A remédiator at work
REMÉDIA is a localization specialist in Rimouski, Québec

Our approach is pretty straight-forward : we play the game, then we translate it. Why is it so important for us to understand your game before trying to localize it in French? Because context matters. If we simply tried to translate your art word by word with an automatic translator, we would never be able to translate what you really meant, what’s the intentions behind the words. For us, video games localization is an art form.

Practical solutions to help localize your game in time

Our approach of translation complements your game development by providing you with specialized localization solutions. We’ll ensure your game is translated by professionals in time for your release date! We can also provide support in community management and website developpement.


We’re professional writers who also happens to enjoy games a lot

To translate a game, you better be a gamer. It’s our secret recipe to bring your art to life in a whole new language : enjoy playing, understand the intentions and translate them in a new language. Showing respect for your art is the first step towards localizing it.

We understand context matters, even for a user interface

Even for menus and UX, the context of a game matters. A lot. How many horror video games were ruined by obscure menus? Or by errors that irked the player? Being gamers ourselves, we understand how difficult it can be to communicate what needs to be said while contributing to the immersion.


We take video games very seriously

Gaming is a serious business. Aside from the fun of playing a game, we think writing for one should require as much expertise as writing for any other business. We long studied games and we understand how they are created. This is how we can offer better localization solutions than a translator who looks upon games with a smirk.
