Hi, I'm Greg Strider!


Translator | Localizer


Translating is my passion, with special love for game localization! 😊

Since 2015, I've been helping many developers, publishers and localization studios to break the language barrier and bring their games and apps to the Portuguese-speaking community with top-notch quality. I've also been gaming for as long as I can remember, so I truly understand gamers' needs when it comes to language from a personal perspective.

Get in touch and together we'll achieve the best results for your project.

Here's What I Can Do for You


Simple text file? Working with variables and markup languages? Or maybe you need a localized version of graphic elements?
All of these are no-brainers to me. Each game is unique and poses a different challenge; that's why I love my job!
We'll work together to make your product reach the next level!
My main scope of work is video game and app localization, but I'm also capable of working on a variety of other products and different topics. Here are some of the translation services I usually provide:

I work with several file formats such as .doc, .pdf, .xls, .json, .csv, .xml and .resx for texts, and .psd for images.

Portfolio


Here are some of the products I have translated.
Please keep in mind that most of the projects I'm currently working on or have worked on in the past cannot be revealed because of non-disclosure agreements (NDAs), but those responsible for the projects below were kind enough to let me list them.

Steam Translation Server


The Steam Translation Server (STS) is a website that allows community members to take part in the translation of Valve products.

I've started as Community Translator in November 2015 and was soon promoted to Community Moderator in February 2016. Since then, I've been managing a passionate team of volunteers dedicated to localizing Valve products to Brazilian Portuguese. The work includes both translation and revision of others' translations.

Up until December 2020, the STS team was responsible for translating Steam, the global leader in online game distribution, and its entire platform (including the Steam client, webpages, support articles, Steam Big Picture and Steamworks), as well as their main game franchises. Nowadays, we translate select Valve games, such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2 and Team Fortress 2).
