The Future of Localization Testing

Nadine Martin  |  Senior Manager of Test Operations, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe

Location: Room 2004, West Hall

Format: Session
Track: Localization Summit
Vault Recording: Video


As ambitions (and budgets) for AAA games get bigger and bigger, high-quality localization has been essential to succeed in global markets and maximize return on investment. This inspirational talk looks at how bigger budgets or more languages don't have to go hand in hand with higher localization test costs. It questions the traditional sequential localization test models and shares what Sony has been doing to change the nature of its localization testing efforts without compromising on quality.

Takeaway

The session will share what Sony's First Party QA team has been doing to change the nature of its localization testing efforts, what has been driving the changes, what has worked or not, and how quality can be maintained at lower costs without compromising quality.
