WOW SALSA 101
This Blizzard press release announces that their hit MMO title World of Warcraft will be released in Latin America for the first time.
The Latin American localization will be based on the existing
European Spanish version but will feature entirely re-recorded in-game
speech. This new version of the game will be rolled out in select
markets throughout Latin America starting in the first half of 2008 and
will also be available to Spanish-speaking players in the US and Canada
at that time.
A dedicated Spanish-speaking team is being assembled at the
Blizzard Entertainment offices in Irvine, California and Austin, Texas
to ensure that Spanish-speaking World of Warcraft players based in
North and South America will receive high-quality 24/7 support in
Spanish. Positions are currently open on the company’s customer
service, quality assurance, community relations, and web teams, and a
new official website for the game’s North and South America-based
Spanish-speaking players is in development.
