Board game translation and layout

Welcome to Meeple Foundry

We are the perfect combination of a professional translator and a graphic designer with plenty of experience, and we want to bring your board games further!

Meeple Foundry is a project founded by Diana & Samuel and meant for editorials and authors to develop and publish their board games with professional solutions on what regards translation, design and graphic adaptation. We could tell you we are good and perfectly coordinated… but we’d rather show you games that we have worked on:

What we do

Translation & Localization

The best solution for international licences or if you want to expand to new markerts or simply have a downloadable .pdf for your Kickstarter campaign (EN/ES/PT/RO)


We do proofreading for all the texts you might need, on gramatical, spelling, structure and comprehensive levels.

Graphic adaption

We adapt all the components and graphic elements of your game into other languages: rulebook, cards, boards, trays, etc.

Graphic design & Layout

We design whatever you need for your game: a rulebook, a visual identify or all the needed graphic elements.

Illustration & 3D Renders

We are able to illustrate your game, either if you have a defined theme or not yet. We can also create the 3D models for the setup, box, components, etc.

Photography & Media Kit

We take professional photos and give them to you, together with a Media Kit with resources such as the texts, logos, the box, etc. Perfect to promote your game!

We can adapt our services towards the needs of your game, and it can be a unique service or a full design. Here are our recommendation on what regards the solutions we offer the most:

MeepleFoundry was recommended to me buy my manufacturer (Panda) for translating OuiSi's guidebook from English to Spanish. I gave them very tight deadlines, and yet they delivered beautiful and thoughtful work on time and on budget. It's not a question of "if" I work with Meeple Fuondry again, but "when."

We were a little lost when it came to localization, so when we met Diana and Samu, it was extremely encouraging. They walked us through the process and did an incredible job of translation and design to match our original rulebook. Cannot recommend them highly enough.

Andrea & Carlos

Andrea and Carlos are art-enthusiasts since forever. She started with traditional illustration and later focused on digital. Carlos, in addition to being specialized in illustration, he works with sculptures. Both are graduates in Graphic Design and ever since many years they have plenty of knowledge in art, which shapes their illustration style. Both Andrea and Carlos have been able to combine the illustration aspect with their experience as designers, and have been working together for over 8 years. They are capable to work on any sort of projects, from a simple storyboard to an illustrated book, and of course board games illustration.

When it comes to their taste on board games, both love all genres, from an euro to a filler, as soon as it works well for 2 players.
