Half-Life: Google Translate Edition, formerly known as GoldSrc: Google Translated, is a horribly mistranslated version of several different GoldSrc games (originally I was going to do all of them, but that likely won't happen any time soon due to lack of interest) where every bit of text and dialogue has been translated to several different languages in Google Translate, then translated back to English. This includes spoken dialogue, most UI elements, in-game titles, model textures, and map textures. No audible dialogue or legible text is safe from my shenanigans.

If you need more mistranslated Valve games in your life, Portal: Google Translate Edition is out now! A sequel, Portal 2: Google Translate Edition, is under development. In addition, Half-Life 2: Google Translate Edition is currently under development by my friend Gyarik.

Feel free to read and/or contribute to the Wiki!

The Team:

Ashley Nyquist: Voice of Tram Announcer, Dr. Gina Cross, and Dr. Collette Green.

Drew Nyquist: Project Leader, Texture Artist; Voice of Scientists, Security Guards, HECU Marines, Nihilanth, G-man, Black Ops, Drill Instructors, Dr. Rosenberg (Decay), and Dr. Keller.

Nathan Abernethy: Voice of HECU Marines, Dr. Rosenberg (Blue Shift).

This project was inspired by Fatguy703's "Book of Mario" series, where he did the exact same translation process with Paper Mario 64 and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. If you are a fan of either of those games, I highly recommend checking out this playlist of all of the highlights: Youtube.com

Final Major Update

News 2 comments

Hey all! As my life starts to get consumed by my college, work, and other adulting stuff, I decided to post one last major update.

I've gotten many questions about how to play Half-Life: Google Translate on Sven Co-op, despite the fact that I only ever designed this mod to run on single-player Half-Life. Well... I decided to change that.

Half-Life: GTE Sven Co-op Edition

Some time ago, I also decided to start a wiki for this series, which I have dubbed the "Mesa Black Universe."

The-mesa-black-universe.fandom.com

It's very bare-bones right now, with only 4-5 incomplete articles, but I decided to leave a link to it here for people who would like to add to it. Could be an interesting way to keep track of all of the strange lore.

And now, a solemn farewell.

As mentioned above, my life has become pretty busy lately, and I will not have time to maintain support for GoldSrc: Google Translate anymore. I may release smaller updates here and there in the future, but since most people don't seem to want anymore mistransated GoldSrc games (which is totally fine), I don't really see the need to continue maintaining the project. Of course, I have enabled community-uploaded downloads, so if you would like to embark on Google-Translating a GoldSrc game or modification, please feel free! If you want even more Google-Translated Half-Life, my good friend Gyarik is currently heading the development of Half-Life 2: Google Translate edition, which you can find here: ( Moddb.com ) All three of the voice actors from this project will have roles in the sequel, so you should definitely stay tuned!

From the bottom of my heart, thank you all for the love and support that you've given this project. I'll be checking this page daily to answer any questions you might have. And please feel free to upload streams/playthroughs of these Google Translated games! Watching you guys react to everything that happens has been by far my favorite part of making this mod. If you stream on Twitch, there's a chance that I might stop by and say hello.

Farewell, friends. See you all in Half-Life 2: Google Translate Edition!

Even this relatively-obscure expansion to Half-Life has fallen victim to machine mistranslation madness.

This seems to actually work for Half Life Source. I have tried it even though it's not made for it and it made the game very glitchy, so I verified the integrity of the game files to reset the game and it works! I'm very surprised and happy. :)

That is very interesting! Usually getting goldsrc stuff over to source is a bit dicey. Cool to hear, I suppose!

I have tried and It seems to be a 50 50. Some things didn't go through it right and some did.

To make their mouths move when they talk, convert the audio into 8 bit audio

If I could do this to multiple sound files at once, I'd happily make an update to fix the issue. Doing this to one sound file at a time just doesn't seem worth it.

How do I make the game no longer google translated?

Verifying game file integrity on Steam should do the trick.
