GameStreamer Partners With Translations.com to Launch Digital Distribution Platform into International Markets
NEW YORK, April 28, 2010 – Translations.com, the world’s largest privately held provider of language services and translation-related technologies, today announced that it has been selected by GameStreamer, Inc. to execute a multilingual website localization project that will launch the company’s digital distribution platform into international markets.
GameStreamer is a proprietary streaming technology that delivers a ready-to-play stream that negates the need for consumers to install games, and mitigates incompatible DLL issues and system registry corruption. Hoping to position their technology to disrupt the fast growing digital distribution PC game market, the company is executing a rapid global expansion plan that hinges on the localization of its white label partner stores as well as its own casual games store pcgamestore.com and core games store gamestreamer.com into 25 languages."
Given the rapid timeline and the number of languages involved, Gamestreamer needed a comprehensive localization solution supported by turnkey globalization management technology. To that end, GameSteamer will employ Translations.com’s full GlobalLink™ Localization Suite, a modular group of technology applications which manage translation workflows for corporate clients interested in achieving time- and cost-efficiencies.
According to GameStreamer COO Steig Weserberg, “Because we are entering an existing market with providers that already support multiple languages, we needed a solution that enables us to rapidly deploy multiple languages at once. Translations.com not only had the resources and experience, they also had the best technical solution that enables us to automate and simplify the process."
Translations.com Co-CEO Phil Shawe added, “We look forward to playing a role in GameStreamer's international expansion. Bringing their products to so many global markets simultaneously makes this an exciting engagement for us and we look forward to a successful ongoing relationship.”
GameStreamer is a next generation digital distribution platform that develops innovative technology for the digital distribution, commerce and social engagement of video games. We have built the first enterprise-class open digital distribution platform for digital media and applications. Gamestreamer.com is our consumer direct store but we open our platform to others as white label, software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions. We also provide a free SDK to game developers for in-game feature integration such as leaderboards, achievements and matchmaking. White label store solutions range from large, multiple genre mass market game stores to small, single genre boutique game stores whose style and content can be matched to their particular vertical website audience, helping them improve audience stickiness and convert their traffic into revenue. GameStreamer is headquartered in Sarasota, Florida with presence in major cities including San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, London and Moscow.
