    Found A Localization Company

    Hey guys,

    I live in Germany and I'm very interested in Games/Anime localization. Maybe I will establish my own company one day here in Germany as well! ... ( hehe... but it's rather unrealistic, I think). Personally, I prefer English all the time, but for people who don't like it very much, German can be a lifesaver.
    (*cough*Summon Night 5 in German!*cough)

    Do you know what I need to found such a localization company besides the translators and the other staff? I'm just curious.

    I think the biggest thing you're going to need are connections with the people who are producing the content you want to localize. Having someone "in the know" who can help you get meetings with IP holders in Japan is probably the most valuable.
