Pirate treasure, science fiction and virtual reality


Lost pirate cities, treasure, wonderfully diverse characters and a truly cinematic game experience. It was a blast working on the final chapter of a treasure hunter franchise, for which we delivered topnotch Dutch translations. Providing full Dutch audio recordings for over 50 characters can be logically challenging, but as usual our experienced recording studio kept things tight, clean and to the highest standards. A big thank you to our studio and all the Dutch voice actors who went above and beyond to make this happen.

We also wrapped Dutch onscreen translations for a huge procedurally generated sci-fi game, proving once more that we'll meet any challenge, no matter how big the game. To top things off, we localized a couple of amazing VR games for the Dutch gaming community.

Fleet of flagship products


In 2015, we had the honor of localizing a few flagship products into Dutch for one of our favorite clients. We travelled to an alternate steampunk reality of London to battle half-breeds and also completed translation work on an acclaimed RPG in a gothic medieval setting, where we took on even more fearsome and bloodthirsty creatures. All of this seemed child play compared to the survival horror game we localized afterwards. We provided full ingame translations and Dutch subtitles for a hair raising nightmare, where gamer decisions determine who lives and dies.

Luckily, to lighten things up and rinse away the blood and gore, we also localized some PlayStation Vita games, working up a galactic sweat with world famous toons, and toying around with gravity in a Japanese blockbuster. 

We're currently getting geared up to localize some other products for the Netherlands, and are also very excited to start working with some new clients later this winter, but for now all of this is still very hush hush. More news later!

Bit of fresh air


Early 2015, we moved office. For over 17 years, INICIO was based in the city of Utrecht, smack in the middle of the Netherlands. While living and working in the city had its advantages, the lure of greener pastures was strong. INICIO now has new headquarters near Wageningen, surrounded by forests and with enough fresh air to make your head spin. Perfect to sooth the spirits when dealing with the hectic world of localization. Of course, the Netherlands being the size it is, Utrecht is still 'around the corner', so we can still meet up in the city with clients and friends! Best of both worlds.

We're all settled in now and have plenty of room to expand our game localization services even further. We look forward to managing even bigger and more complex Dutch localization projects, taking efficiency to an even higher level and maintaining our INICIO quality standard and service level.
