The LocJAM translation contest was born out of a single ambition: giving everyone the chance to translate a video-game.
For that, we reprogrammed free, non-commercial games to make them easy to translate and shared them on our site. For ten days, anyone would then be able to submit their translation to a professional jury.
It was a roaring success, with over 2000 pro and amateur translators across ten languages and five editions.
A real community gathered around the event, sharing tips and ideas online and through a network of volunteer workshops held around the world (from Madrid to Minsk, from Montevideo to Milan).
Our sixth event was spin-off called LocJAM RPG, which ran from the 2nd to the 4th of July 2021.
The response was great and we are now looking forward to new editions. Please give us a shout here if you want to suggest a game for future events or share your experience with development jams.
