Topic: Audio

Format: Session

Vault Recording: TBD

Audience Level: All

Its always been the studio's goal to make Cyberpunk 2077 feel as if it was developed specifically for the audience in each of the territories CD PROJEKT RED brought the game to. With Phantom Liberty, REDs aimed to expand on this area even further — broadening the range of available languages and improving the tools that they have previously worked with. Alexander Radkevich will cover the demands of supporting the base game and working on the expansion in parallel, optimizing workflows to minimize the costs without giving up on the quality of the game, working with voice-over talents, and delivering tools that helped make the cooperation with external vendors smoother.


This talk provides an insight into how CD PROJEKT RED have improved their localization tools for the Phantom Liberty expansion for Cyberpunk 2077. It covers such issues as the protection of the company's IP, optimizing the workflow, cooperation with external vendors and lastly — developing a full Ukrainian localization for Phantom Liberty and Cyberpunk 2077 in just one year.

Intended Audience

This talk is intended for localization project managers, producers, writers, programmers, and other individuals who are interested in games localization. The talk is broadly accessible but general knowledge of localization and voice over recordings might help.
