Machine translation for gaming

Machine translation for gaming is the translation of in-game and out-of-game text.

For machine translation, gaming is challenging because the content is creative and context-dependent. In-game translation is challenging because of length restrictions.

Gaming content is not a fit for pure human translation if it is created and updated often or continuously streaming.
