Mike has recently participated in the translation of videogame dialogs, where a high degree of sensitivity to cultural issues which differ from country to country is required.

Typically, videogame dialog involves the use of street slang which cannot be found in dictionaries and where computer translation produces unintelligible gibberish. Rendering the dialog so that it is not only faithful to the meaning of the original while retaining the “edginess” and excitement of videogame related content is a welcome challenge.
