Level Designer:

A Level Designer or LD for short, is a person who is responsible for building a level, or map, in a game. This person is often tasked with placing the gameplay in a level, setting up enemy encounters, and overall level flow.

Level Editor:

Level Designers and other members of the development team use a level editor to build the game. A level editor is the same as a game engine and is where gameplay objects such as NPCs, art, sound, and animations come together to form the game.


Localisation is the process of translating the game's language for sale to a secondary market, usually a different country. This involves replacing: text used in art assests, adding or replacing subtitles, replacing spoken dialog with the new language, removing or changing cultural signifiers, and removing or replacing any other aspects of the game that would prohibit sale in the new region (such as toning down gory scenes, removing drug references, etc).
