Gaming terminology is ever-evolving, and even modern dictionaries don’t often keep up with the lingo: what’s a whale, an otome or a HoT? To help you navigate those neologisms, several members of the L10N/Gameloc communities across multiple language pairs have come together to publish their crowdsourced glossaries, adding sources, descriptions, and references along the way.
Whether you are a Gameloc beginner or a veteran, you’re more than welcome to contribute!
