Hi, thanks for stopping by! My name is Lucile Danilov, I’m a Freelance Translator (English to French) and Localization Consultant.
I’ve been working in the games industry since 2007, and created Loc’d and Loaded (abbreviated LD, which also happens to be my initials!) in 2019 to share my ramblings about Game Localization, as well as my personal thoughts on technical topics, interviews, resources, and more.
Outside of work, my biggest passion is video games (shocking, I know – check out my 100% completion list here), but I also love playing piano, learning languages and tinkering with tech.

Here are some of the projects I got to contribute on over the years:
This is just a fraction of my portfolio – I have over a hundred titles under perpetual NDA in which I am not credited, which is also why you’ll often hear me talk about the #TranslatorsInTheCredits movement 🙂
It was wonderful to work with Lucile, a brilliant linguist with passion, talent, and experience. We worked together on different global projects for over 5 years, and her attention to detail and the ability to handle multiple projects always impressed me. She always goes above and beyond to ensure the quality of translation. I produced some of the source texts for Lucile, and she was my second pair of eyes I could safely rely on. You can hardly find a better linguist for your gaming project!
Natalia NesterovaSenior Localization Producer - Riotloc
I have worked as Lucile's project manager in nearly 1000 translation tasks, for over 800.000 words, in less than two years time. She is by far the most reliable translator I have worked with, never missing a single deadline and being extremely responsive at all times. She has an unquestionable dedication to her work, and her quality is outstanding, always showing great adaptability. She is certainly the translator every PM wishes to have.
Carlos Gómez MartínezLocalization Manager - MY.GAMES
Dedicated, enthusiastic and attention to details are some of the words that defines the best Lucile's work! Her experience in community management and localisation turns her into an invaluable “Swiss knife” for any company that seeks quality visibility and communication on the FR market. She's also the most reliable and responsive translator I've ever worked with so far.
