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.
