Hello everyone.

Could anyone help me with my dissertation topic for my MA studies in Translation Technologies, please?

I want to do a practical project localising a small Android app for mobile devices. I thought about localising a choose-your-own-adventure type of game for this purpose, as there is a lot of text material to translate and it blends the worlds of fantasy storytelling, video games, mobile apps and technical translation. However, my supervisor said I need a strong theory to support it, make it more niche and approach it from a new, interesting angle. I tried suggesting domestication as a way to approach the literary translation and a more formal approach for the technical translation, but that's too broad.

Any suggestions where to start my research would be appreciated, thank you.
