Translation and adaptation of questions and answers for a quiz about football
QuizQuizQuiz is a British company specializing in creating questions for quizzes, offering this service to companies of various industries. Quizzes are often exported to other countries, as in the case of games for consoles or smartphones: for this purpose QuizQuizQuiz also uses external teams. For this project it was necessary to translate a series of questions (with their answers) into Italian, for a football-related app, which was to be released in a timely manner just before the 2014 World Cup.
Following a collaboration that started several years ago, QuizQuizQuiz turned to us to translate and adapt the football-related app. An entire section devoted to English football was rewritten from scratch with questions about Italian football; another section, entitled “Football and music,” had to be almost completely recreated, adding references to Italian and international songs which are well-known in Italy. The translation was delivered a few days ahead of schedule, allowing the client more time for final testing. Testing ourselves again in such a creative and demanding job was really a pleasure and it was fun. Thanks to us, and the other translators, QuizQuizQuiz could deliver a product to the end customer perfectly adapted for its international markets, including, of course, Italy.
