FX Football is a football manager game developed in full by FX Interactive. Among the hundreds of video games which I’ve localised throughout my translation career, this was without a doubt one of the most challenging, as despite my fluency in both source and target languages, football terminology isn’t my forte. In order to translate the game, I had to carry out extensive research, consult football forums, watch technical videos, and above all, draw on the wisdom of friends and family who know far more about the subject than me. As well as localising the game, I also handled the linguistic testing, translation of the user manual, and related online content.
