Description :

Join us for an engaging talk on translating video games.

In this event, Charlotte will talk about how she came to work at Nintendo, the recruitment process for a career in localisation, and what the job looks like on a day to day basis. She will be bringing a couple of examples of translation tasks (no Japanese needed!), and explain how people can best place themselves for the same kind of career. 

Charlotte Steggall became interested in learning Japanese after being involved in a school visit of students from Japan when she was 14. She went on to study Japanese at Liverpool John Moores University, and after graduation transitioned from the JET Programme to being a Japanese to English translator at Nintendo of Europe.

Some of the games Charlotte has been involved in translating include Wii Party U, Mario Party 9, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, and the Inazuma Eleven Go series.

These days she manages Early Careers Recruitment at AVEVA, a software company in Cambridge. She feels strongly about showing young people all the exciting careers that can be possible in technology. 

The talk will begin at 7pm and last around 90 minutes, with the opportunity to ask questions afterwards.
