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)

Proofreading

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:

We are the team your board game wants to work with

Where are we to be found?

Even though we’d love to be constantly traveling, trying new things and experiencing new cultures and countries, we are now living in sunny Málaga, Spain. We have lived though in different countries, such as Germany, Portugal or Romania, and we travel each time we got the chance.

However, you are at an email distance from us.
