Montreal – Bug-Tracker Laboratories, one of the world leaders in quality assurance dedicated to the interactive entertainment industry, holding their main offices in Montreal, confirms it will widen its range of services by acquiring Monde Media Solutions, a young Montreal based institution specializing in translation, localization integration and cultural adaptation for video games.
“We are very happy with this new acquisition and the synergy that it creates between both companies”, declares Antoine Carre, President of Bug-Tracker Laboratories. “The combination of our respective services allows us to offer all-encompassing proposals to our customers, bringing an operational solution to recurring needs felt by many major players in the video game industry”.
Bug-Tracker’s presence in Canada, Europe and Asia affords many new outlets and opportunities for Monde Media Solutions in these territories.
The two companies will keep their independence with respect to their own clients, but the convergence of both sets of services will make it possible to offer global solutions to interested customers. These will include translation in more than 15 languages, integration of translated texts, images and sounds, technical and cultural multilingual adaptation, localized audio recordings, game testing and analysis, localization testing resulting from the localization integration process, as well as customer support in several languages.
“We are elated by this new association with Bug-Tracker and all of the opportunities for growth that such an affiliation will bring to both companies.” adds Jean-Robert Michel, general manager at Monde Media Solutions. “This marriage will make it possible for our company to benefit from Bug-Tracker’s extensive management and marketing resources, while we concentrate on developing and perfecting our processes and our versatile localization tools suite.
Some of the clear advantages for our customers will be the improvement of the quality of our localizations, the flexibility and responsiveness brought by being present on three continents, the efficiency of having our respective resources in close proximity, and of course, the reduction in localization costs”.
