All-in Global is the #1 language service provider for the iGaming industry. With 12 years of data we believe it’s relevant for our viewers to know how our localization projects are divided. Our staff tend to choose “marketing creative” when it’s not clear how a project should be classified, so this number is often too high in comparison.

THE CHALLENGES OF IGAMING LOCALIZATION IN CZECH

To Czech, or not to Czech, that is the question…

One of the main challenges when localizing gaming content to the Czech language is keeping the balance between English and Czech terms. Why would we use English words in the Czech text?

Czech players are well-versed in most of the gaming terminology. They use many English terms naturally, and this is especially obvious in live casino games such as Poker.

While they certainly can say “dorovnat“, “stát” or “navýšit“, more often they simply “call”, “check” or “raise”. It’s not that they’re missing translations for these terms, it’s just that gaming is so global. Whether you play in Europe, America, or Antarctica, you simply say “all-in” rather than describing it by saying “sázím vše“.

But where is the barrier between using well-known English terms and making the translated text illegible, especially for new players?

Many gaming forums and poker-oriented websites use a mix of English and Czech to the extent where English words replace perfectly suitable words of their own. On top of that, these English words are inflected according to Czech grammar rules. This usually does not mean any problem, but using it too much makes the text incomprehensible. Just read the below sentence as an example:

Betnul jsem 5 big blindů, fishka se chytil a raisnul, big stack callnul, já reraisnul, jenže fishka šla all-in…

I bet you can recognize many English words. To tell the truth, 11 out of 19 words of the above sentence are English. Is this still a Czech text then?

The secret that solves this problem is to maintain a balance between Czech and English terms. English terms should be used in situations requiring simplicity and clarity, and even like that such terms should be explained somewhere in the text. Czech terms should be used where English term might be confusing – especially new players can be easily discouraged from playing a game if they do not understand what is happening around them.

In general, there are two approaches when translating English terms. Translators either tend to keep everything in English, or use the Czech language at all costs.

Describing actions in the Czech language will keep the new players at the table. Using simple English terms where appropriate keeps the flow of the game and at the same time it educates the new players. How about professionals? They do understand Czech terms, they feel comfortable with English terms, and for their chat messages to their fellow players, they will use the gaming jargon anyway.

Everyone is looking for a win-win situation. And using a balanced mixture of Czech and English words is definitely the right way to go. Only a native Czech translator with experience in iGaming will be able to make the right decisions and chose the right terms for your Czech localization project. Luckily, at All-in Global you can find a team of professional Czech translators that are not only native but also players with the essential knowledge to deliver the best possible results.

CZECH ONLINE GAMING MARKET: CURRENT STATUS

CZECH ONLINE GAMING MARKET: POTENTIAL

WHY CHOOSE US FOR YOUR CZECH PROJECT?

Video slots are the Czech game of choice when it comes to enjoying some online casino gaming. iGaming launched in 2016, although it looked good on paper has had a stifling effect on operators. Unrealistic tax increases have seen some iGaming operators close their doors to the Czech market.

 

Some could argue that this is the most effective way to weed out unscrupulous operators and the industry is going strong, with slots revenue currently valued just shy of 2.8 billion CZK (106 million Euro).

With projected total revenue for online casino gaming looking to hit the 7.2 billion CZK (320 million Euro) mark in the coming years, the Czech online casino industry is looking forward to a boom, as more operators are vying for pole position within this highly profitable market.

 

Land-based casinos are on the decrease, seeing more and more players moving to online casino gaming while lottery purchases are seeing a year-on-year increase of 15%. With so much growth in the online casino industry, the Czech market is certainly one for operators to keep their eyes on.

We recommend you to involve your language service provider as early as possible in the Czech localization process. This way, you will avoid pitfalls and the need to rework later, meaning you will experience no delays in getting your global growing going. We are quick, reliable, and a highly trusted partner across the gaming industry.
