How to get started in translation for games ?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am a young french student, I am very interested in linguistic and languages (which I both study at the university), and some days ago I had a thought : maybe I could translate video games.

It never came to me before even when I was thinking about becoming a translator, but since I play a lot of video games (including a lot of indie games which are rarely in french) I think it may be something that I can enjoy doing.

Even though it's not exactly being a developer, I thought it could fit in this topic as I would appreciate any kind of advice from people coming from the gaming industry, because I don't know for exemple if developers usually pay for this kind of service, if it's even wanted, if I need a specialised diploma and so on.

So if you have information on how translators work in the video game industry I would really appreciate to discuss it with you !
