Language quality assurance (LQA)

Before delivering the final files, we perform linguistic quality assurance (LQA). Skilled reviewers and native proofreaders inspect the target text for spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors. We ensure compliance with glossaries and style guides while identifying potential issues such as:

  • trailing spaces,
  • strings exceeding character limits,
  • incorrect numeric formats,
  • inconsistent terminology,
  • potential missing diacritics,
  • and other concerns that could impact the game’s reception and UX.

For specific projects like board and card games, catalogues, and marketing materials, we recommend an additional step called linguistic sign-off (LSO) to enhance product quality. Once the graphic designer has prepared the final version of the localised content for print, a native speaker conducts a review to verify that all text is correctly displayed, not obscured by images or extending beyond borders, and that words are not improperly truncated.

Skipping these final steps may seem tempting for time and cost savings, but it’s crucial to perform them early when changes are still cheap and easy to implement.
