We localize computer and video games,
with brilliant translations and awesome dubbing.

We are Local Heroes. An independent localization company for world class local game translation and dubbing services for
Brazilian, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Swedish... and more.
We translate, we dub, we use Oxford commas, and we kick ass.
Simply put: we make our clients' games accessible and at least as enjoyable in languages other than the original!
We've been doing this since 1997 as U-TRAX, and as of 2014 under our Local Heroes disguise!

How we localize games and kick ass while doing it.

Clients send us jobs any way they want and tell us in what language to send it back. We then process the text using our magical tools and light up the Local Heroes signal. Now we assemble the best and brightest in our network of talented linguists to begin translating the job. We send it back and get the clients any form of aftercare they might need.

Of course, for dubbing we'll also add one of our top-notch studios into the mix, flying in a dedicated audio wizard where necessary to make sure the game will sound absolutely perfect. All the while keeping clients in the loop to make sure it will all snugly fit together.

We work with a variety of software, including CAT tools, professional audio applications, a number of cunning home-brew productivity tools, and a standardised office workflow. Clients send us whatever they want localized in whatever format and we'll get it back to them in proper form. Easy as stroopwafels.

And now... Over twenty-five years of kick-ass localization! We wanted to thank all our clients, partners, and friends! You all kick some serious ass!

Five years of kick-ass localization! We wanted to thank all our clients, partners and friends

And so we did on 28 June 2019, in our backyard in Utrecht, NL!
Here's an awesome compilation of pics snapped at our funtastic party.
