We offer the service of customizing some of our games into a localized language package. For our partners that operate in multi-lingual territories, the size of the packaging is limiting, so 3 languages per game is the maximum.
THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE YOU START:
Minimum quantity: 5k units per product
Set up fee: $500 per product (One time only)
Price: Additional component charges may apply
Down payment: $0.50 per unit at the time translations start (The down-payment will be deducted from invoices as the goods ship.)
Shipping point: FOB Hong Kong only
Lead time: 4 months to availability in Hong Kong
Shipping: Factories can hold inventory for six months from the start of production. Shipping schedule required at the time of order. At the end of the six months, you are responsible for taking any remaining inventory.
It is important that you work together with our project coordinator to ensure we stay on schedule with these projects, as our design resources are limited.
Please note: Customization of products consists of text translations to the package and instructions only. We do not change the company logo, nor do we change any of the artwork.
- Translate Text: You will receive a Word document from us with all the text needed to translate. You will be responsible for providing the translations, adhering to the original text and spirit of the game. The translated text should come back to us in the same format, so everything is clear for our designers. We recognize translations can be longer, so please keep in mind that space is limited when translating.
- Design: Our Product Design team will reformat the package and instructions inserting your translations. It is likely that the layout will need to change if we are putting more than one language on the box. Here is an example of Solitaire Chess in 3 languages compared to our standard English packaging. You will receive a first proof in a PDF format for your review.
- Approval: After you receive the first proof, we ask that you review it carefully and provide us with any final changes that are required. We will make those adjustments and send you the final PDF proof along with our internal approval form. This will be your last chance to inspect the artwork; no changes can be made after the final approval!
- Production: Once we have your final approval and have received your down-payment and set up fee, we will begin production. Our factories will need 60 days to produce and prepare for shipping.
