Default Which translation/localization website do you use?

Hello,

We are doing localization our game to some languages:
- Chinese (simplified)
- Japanese
- Korean
- German
- French
- Spanish

Could you please suggest some good localization website service with affordable price for these language?
So far I'm trying: https://www.icanlocalize.com/ and http://www.vnlocalize.com/ but honestly I don't know whether their service is good.

Thanks,
JOY

We use Fiverr, a translation + proof reading will usually cost us about $15-20 per language...

And hey, if it doesn't work out you can always try a different translator. Whats $15 compared to hundreds?

I've had great success with ICanLocalize. It takes a few days for all the translations to arrive, but I found their system easy enough to use, and their translators very credible. I've also used proz.com for larger blocks of text, like articles.

I recommend tethras.com. Also consider Russian and Portugese (Brazil). Worked for us:

DYS Translations, of course, since they're specialized in this (the very first company in the world to focus on mobile apps translations). They partnered with important companies and kept their prices very affordable.

I'm also satisfied with My Gengo (now called simply "Gengo"). Ok service.
Edit: I'm not going to use Gengo anymore. Their service got worse.

After using IcanTLocalize I received a bunch of emails from different users complaining about the Japanese and French translations. I had to spend double to fix the translations and this negatively affected the sales.

We've been discussing about the same topic here in the past: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=1244
