If you are someone who wants to play video games all day long and get paid for it, then you are not alone. But if you are looking to get a stable job with a gaming company that requires you to play games all day long, then you are in luck, if you live in Liverpool that is. PlayStation is looking for a localization tester for Portuguese, the language spoken in Brazil. This means that in addition to being good at playing games, you also need to speak Portuguese fluently. The description of the job is as follows

Localization testing:

  • Test software to ensure all localized assets are correct from linguistic, consistency and display points of view.

Localized assets review:

  • Proof-read and correct translations before they are implemented into the games, ensuring that quality, accuracy and consistency is maintained.

Translation work:

  • Occasionally provide translations for games, the packaging text for console and peripherals.

Other duties:

  • Assist other teams with general testing duties when required
  • Assist with project and process related tasks

Skills, knowledge and experience:

  • Fluency in English and one or more languages
  • Passionate games player
  • Good knowledge of computer games across multiple platforms
  • Working knowledge of MS Office package
  • Basic understanding of the development cycle and constraint

Game testing and localization isn’t a new job in the world of gaming. Since games are played worldwide and people may prefer to play the game in their native language, localization is key to the appeal of a game in some markets. We haven’t seen too many games localized for Indian languages yet, which is a bummer. 

If you are one that’s looking to make gaming into a profession then competitive gaming is the place to be. If you don't think your skills match up to the rest online, then you can always turn to game streaming as there are a lot in India who have made a career out of game streaming.
