  1. Goals/Mission: To provide a focal point and nexus for the growing number of game localization professionals in order to build community, draw together best practices and processes, and emphasize the requisite international dimension of game content development towards the goal of improving global game development processes and local end user experiences.
  4. Potential projects/Initiatives: Beyond the goal of drawing together and building community among those involved in game localization, the SIG would also seek to fulfill collaborative projects. Some possible examples include:
  6. Activities at Industry Events: Ensure that the SIG has a clear presence at events like GDC, Localization World, E3, Gamescom, etc.
  8. Game Localization Best Practices: Compiles a list of core best practices for game localization and shares them via the SIG. Started in early 2011 and republished in an updated version in English in 2012. We have translated it into Japanese and Brazilian Portuguese so far, and plan to maintain it and translate to other languages.
  10. LocJAM: create a yearly event, framed as a free and non-competitive game translation contest, that can act as a showcase for videogame localization among students, young professional and developers. Started in 2014, with two editions held so far.
