Other Activities at a Glance

Games Gathering 2019: Kyiv

The conference Games Gathering took place on the 6th and 7th of December in Kyiv. The members of SBT localization team, Oleksii Ivanov, Olha Khmelnytska, and Oleksandr Lukianov, took advantage of the opportunity to both learn more about the news and announcements and discuss Ukrainian localization with the game developers. What they saw and who met – read more in this article.


Do you need something interesting to read? What about some new games, which will be released in 2020? We present to your attention Games 2020 (spring).

Short overview of the SBT Localization team’s achievements in 2019: Ukrainian Localization 2019.

Last but not least, the results of the questionnaire about the Ukrainian language in games: Ukrainian Language in Games: Statistics.

Game Giveaways

SBT Localization was generous with gifts in December. We had a few giveaways and presented the following games: Call od Duty: Modern Warfare, Distance, Dark Future: Blood Red State, Horizon Chase Turbo, The Sinking City (with a map with the developers’ signatures), Naval Action, Puss!, My Time at Portia, Yakuza Kiwami, Regular Human Basketball.

Translator’s Rules

What imprinted on our memory in December was video 4 Rules of a True Translator. Video soon reached 1000 views, pleased us and Maksym Duvanov as creator in particular.

One episode received special attention from the viewers, so we publish it separately upon request. Use wisely.


We streamed three times in December: Naval Action (led by Tenevyk), S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Call of Prypiat (led by Oleksandr Lukianov) and Curious Expedition (led by Yura Dragon). Unfortunately, only Naval Action recording saved due to technical reasons.
