I had an idea for a table of common video game terms and translation into common languages. I wasn't thinking of a complex glossary, maybe just 25-50 of the most common terms that would be used in almost every video game. For example, score, high score, level, settings/options, controls, play/start, quit/exit, lives (number of), back/next, forward/previous. Mostly the terms that a video game menu would include. Members here could add input as to their native languages to improve the accuracy.
I've been searching the web for a while now and have not come across anything like this. Surely most of these can be easily translated with Google translate or something like it, but some words don't always translate the same in the context of a video game.
I think this would be a useful tool for developers here, what do you guys think?
