Biography edit · view history

After completing a Bachelor's Degree in Translation and Interpreting, a Diploma in Software Localization, and a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, and realizing that he did not want to be a full-time programmer nor a translator, Adolfo joined the video-game industry in 2005 as a Localization Integrator at Ubisoft (2005 - 2010). This position fitted his academic background and interests like a glove, since it allowed him to use both his technical and linguistic skills. In 2010, Adolfo decided to look for new challenges, which he found at THQ, where he and his team successfully implemented a completely new localization pipeline along with a suite of location tools. At THQ, he managed to fully localize 6 titles in only 2 years, quite a challenge. Finally, in April 2013, Adolfo joined the Warner Bros. Montreal studio and became the first member of the new Montreal Localization department.

Adolfo has worked as a Localization Manager/Engineer of the following main titles:

Warner Bros. Montreal (2013 - ) * Middle-earth: Shadow of War * Injustice 2 * Cars 3 * Batman: Arkham VR * Batman: Arkham Knight * Mortal Kombat X * Mad Max * Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor * Batman: Arkham Origins

THQ (2010 - 2013) * Metro: Last Light * Company of Heroes 2 * Darksiders II * Saints Row: The Third * Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine * Red Faction: Armageddon * Homefront
