Game testing firm expands international services to U.S. market

Game testing company Pole To Win has opened a new “full-service studio” in Sunnyvale, California – to be known as Pole To Win America – in order to be closer to and “offer comprehensive services to U.S. clients.”

Pole To Win currently operates seven studios in Japan offering quality assurance, localization, focus group testing and customer relation services to U.S., European and Asian publishers.

“While the company offers multilingual services around the clock and has worked for U.S. companies for years, we felt moving to the West Coast, where we would be within an hour of most major publishers,” said Pole To Win president and CEO Teppei Tachibana.

“We are also opening a full service studio, with local testers, trained and supervised by PTW, and multinational translators, so our customers can visit us and see our operations,” he continued.

“We pride ourselves on being able to handle games at any part of the development or publishing cycle, and strive to be flexible to our client’s needs.”
