info_outline About

LocDirect CMS is a game localization tool designed to simplify collaboration between development, translator, and QA teams. It allows translating strings on the fly and sim-ship worldwide.

Founded in 2009 by ex-game developers Christoffer Nilsson and Mattias Wennerholm, now LocalizeDirect incorporates a network of more than 200 native-speaking translators and game testers with a number of sales, LQA and project managers working across the globe.
The HQ is based in Helsingborg, Sweden with a development team operating in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. LocalizeDirect translated over 45 million words in 800 games for more than 500 clients.

Best for:
games development companies that need to frequently push updates into the running game in multiple languages.

There’re integrations with Unity, Unreal, Wwise, JIRA, MemoQ, Memsource, and others.

For import, LocDirect supports only comma-separated values files.

For export, with the build generators, it’s possible to generate export files using a built-in script language, which means that basically any text-based format can be exported. (It’s not a drop-down list where the user selects an export format. Instead, it’s a custom script that is being created to export the texts according to the needs of the customer).

Mobile app updates on air – applicable to mobile, computer, and console games.
