Games Localisation: 25 Glossaries That You Should Know

Games Localisation

Hi everybody,

I have been working on a presentation for the London Metropolitan University on games localisation, and I found several game localisation glossaries that might be useful, both in Spanish and English.

As mentioned before, games localisation needs both game-specific knowledge and domain-specific knowledge. So I think that whoever is into games localisation will probably enjoy this selection of resources.
