At this point in your career there are really two types of transfers you can make.

You can transfer to the same job in an unrelated field.
You can transfer to a different job in the same field.

You can do them one after the other, which many people do.

You can attempt to do both at once, but it is much harder and not recommended.


Making them one at a time gives two paths:

See if you can do that your current job inside the game industry. You have experience in translating stuff; how about translating stuff at a game studio? After you work at a game studio, convince your bosses that you would make a good programmer and switch jobs.

Alternatively, look for a programming job within your current industry. Once you are an experienced programmer look to move into any entertainment-related field. Once you are doing entertainment-related programming, making the final jump to game programmer is relatively easy.
