Who We Are

Founded in 2000, XLOC was the first company to recognize the need for and develop a localization management solution for the video game industry. Why? Because we needed it ourselves. We knew there had to be a better way to overcome the complexities of localization to enable simultaneous multi-language development and shipment of titles worldwide. Once we solved those all-too familiar localization challenges, we wanted to share our solutions with the industry at large.

Today, hundreds of companies, from gaming industry giants to the smallest start-ups, rely on XLOC’s revolutionary web-based applications for easy localization management.

We’re proud of how far we’ve come, but also passionate about continuing to evolve our solutions to meet the ever-changing needs of today’s producers, developers, QA teams and translators. One thing that won’t change at XLOC? Our dedication to working with you as a partner, understanding and respecting your processes, and our commitment to making localization as easy and profitable as it can possibly be.





"The proof is in the pudding. XLOC knows the pitfalls and nuances of localization. They get the job done right – they ship games on time."

Vice President, Call of Duty® Series
