We love Spain. So does EA. According to this, the publisher’s opened a massive testing centre in Madrid that will employ between 200 and 400 people from 20 European countries.

“We decided several years ago that we needed to centralise all of our services,” said EA’s international VP for development services, Jaime Gine.

Most of the work there’s going to be translation, apparently.

“Our job is to make sure that the translation matches the context and the development of the game,” said Laurent Gabas, a 25-year-old French games tester.
