At Altagram Group, we rely on a huge pool of 1000+ multilingual freelancers, working in 94 language pairs since 2016, to accompany us on your game’s localization journey. We have nurtured these relationships over the years, and are proud to consider ourselves a go-to establishment in terms of freelancers’ wellbeing and support.
We see the benefits as two-fold: nurturing good relationships with our freelancers is essential to providing high-quality localization results, while it also aligns with the values of transparency, commitment, and reliability we’ve been promoting since our inception.
Our deeper understanding of our freelancers’ capacities and of their likes and dislikes of specific genres allows us to better allocate projects. Some of our freelancers are well-versed in MMOs and online games, having played them since their teenage years, while others have been ardent platformer and Metroidvania fans since childhood. Consequently, they have gained a broader understanding of the ins and outs of their lingo.
This added value in terms of positive exchanges can be felt through the completion of our recurrent check-in surveys. In line with the transparency policies we promote with our clients, we have decided to start sharing the results of the feedback our freelancers give us.
Below, are some of the results of the latest questionnaires.

First and foremost, these surveys help us measure the efficiency and quality of our exchanges with freelancers. As such, we can evaluate some of the roadblocks we may be facing in our monthly project scheduling, while assuring better management of the wellbeing of our freelancers.
On the whole, it is a pleasure to read the comments on our ongoing relationships, and while we are always aware that it is possible to improve, we are glad to have been able to define such a nice environment for our collaborations.
