Good video game localization is as much about preventing changes as making them. With the right preparation, you can drastically reduce the development cost of your games – not only in financial terms but also the time it takes to produce them.

Localization strategies differ from one platform to another. If your game is going to hit Steam and you don't even know where to start with its localization, here are the 7 languages you should absolutely consider localizing your game into.


Localization doesn’t always get the attention it deserves, but it’s something you can’t afford to ignore in today’s market.


The first goal of localizing a game is to get more people playing it. More players mean more revenue and adapting your video games for different languages and cultures can add millions of players in each given market.


Unity makes things easier by streamlining the development process. This includes localization, too, so you can open up your game to the global masses. However, you need to be careful because game localization is a tricky process.
