Babel Media, a provider of outsourced services for the games industry, has hired Heidi Newell, formerly of EA and Big Fish Games, as its new audio director. Newell joins Babel's audio team as it records English audio for an undisclosed title due for release later this year. She will also be working on localised audio for "one of the year’s most anticipated sequels" -- again, the name of which has not yet been given. The industry veteran has spent 16 years working on audio for top game companies, including jobs as localization manager at EA Canada and lead project manager at Big Fish's Vancouver studio. She will be situated at Babel's Montreal studio. Richard Leinfellner, CEO at Babel, said, "I am very pleased that Heidi has decided to join us as she brings with her a wealth of audio knowledge built up from working with the best people and voice talent in the industry." "Under her leadership we plan to continue growing our audio business offering rapid, high quality, and cost effective solutions for our clients." Babel currently houses over 600 QA testers over its Montreal, Brighton and New Delhi studios, and its localisation team translates over one million words every month.
