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, and 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.

An official sequel, known as Half-Life 2: Google Translate Edition, is being developed by my friend Gyarik. You can find it here: Moddb.com

Wiki(very early stages, but feel free to add to it): The-mesa-black-universe.fandom.com

The Team:

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

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.

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

Here are the other releases:

Opposing Force: GTE V1.1

Decay: GTE BETA

Deathmatch Classic: GTE

Ricochet: GTE

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 pease 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!

What is your favorite GTE related quote or line?

Difficult question... for quotes, the drill instructor's "Are you my eyeball child?" is definitely one of my favorites. My favorite line of text is a tie between "Thug Newell" and "Your mother is a bucket."

Dear BinkusTheTrinkus,
Could you help me, please? Not all of the content is replaced with GTE. Some parts remained the original.
I installed everything according to the instruction.
Unfortunately, I could not find the solution to my problem in recent posts

Interesting... which parts remained original and which parts were changed?

What kinda synthesizer you used in your original compositions for this beautiful mod?

Those synthesizer sounds are actually just a MIDI playback from MuseScore, which is a free music scoring program. I think I used the "Timbres of Heaven" soundfont for those ones.

Since i saw a video of the decay GTE being played.

I wonder if the low volume voice acting issue can be solved?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

It can be solved in an easy but time-consuming process of manually raising the volume of each voice line. Perhaps I'll do that at some point in the future, but for now, my hands are kinda tied with college, work, and helping with Half-Life 2: GTE.

I gladly accept help! I've made it so users can upload files on this mod page. I'm almost certain you'll need to create an account first, but I appreciate the help.
