Therefore, each project is assigned a Project Manager who is in charge of managing the entire localization process from start to finish and of updating the client on the development of the working process. INHOUSE QUALITY ASSURANCE Our motto is that your success is our success and that’s why we give extreme importance to the final product quality. All projects undergo thorough analysis by our Quality Assurance Department, a team of experienced translators, linguists and engineers who work with comprehensive templates and guarantee the linguistic and technical accuracy of the final product. AddedValue Every localization project presents individual needs and particularities. That is why PINK NOISE has developed a work protocol based on individualized project management and a demanding in-house quality assurance.

The interpretation is very good, similar to other games such as The Getaway, with typical Spanish expressions giving the main character more personality. The cast of actors is extensive as there are a great number of NPCs who appear in the adventure and each and every one of them has their own distinctive voice. Impressive, a model to follow for the rest of the titles.” JAK AND DAXTER: THE PRECURSOR LEGACY “The first thing that will astonish you: the Spanish dubbing. Only one thing can be said on the matter, it’s fantastic. We have the best dubbing ever seen on a video game. […] It’s simply impressive and gives you the feeling that you are really watching a film. Daxter’s dubbing actor deserves a special mention, he’s fantastic. Having to do the voice of a comic character and not sounding ridiculous is a very hard job, but we can assure you that it’s absolutely marvelous and will have you in fits of laughter with Daxter’s comments. Even better than the original English dubbing.” Press

In the dubbing an excellent job has been done with the dialogues, along the same lines of other great videogames super productions. All this work has been produced by PINK NOISE, the company who is in the process of becoming the best dubbing business in the country and who are also responsible for the localization of Jak II, The Getaway or Primal.” FALLOUT “…the excellent Spanish dubbing of each and every one of the characters who appear in the game (and there are quite a few) is truly outstanding.” PlayStation 2 Press
