Abstract: Machine Zone, creator of the popular mobile game: Game of War: Fire Age, pioneered the use of Realtime Machine Translation at scale in the Mobile gaming space. Game of War: Fire Age is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) played on mobile devices globally. The game has over a hundred thousand concurrent users at any given time and the massive player base communicates within the game through a Chat Server. The Chat Server is central to the game’s functioning and provides a global communication platform for players from around the world to communicate in realtime. In order to overcome language barriers, Machine Zone developed MZ Transformer, a Social Text Normalization and Translation system, which translates incoming foreign language chats to a player’s device language. The large connected player base is a social network in itself and Machine Translation enables this community to communicate better and engage more effectively with the game.
