Half-Life: Google Translate Edition (HL: GTE) is a warped version of Half-Life 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, and even the textures on some of the models. This does NOT include cut dialogue, anything with multiplayer, or any map textures (although this may come in future versions if I can figure out how to use Wally properly).

For spoken dialogue, I am re-recording all of the voiced sound files. Male voices will be done by me, and female voices will be done by my wife. The only exception is the Black Mesa Announcement System. Instead, I am using sentence mixing to add new words to its vocabulary, then entering the new sentences into "sentences.txt." For in-game titles, I'm editing "titles.txt." For the User Interface, I am editing "gameui_english.txt" and "valve_english.txt." For the model textures, I use a model viewer to extract all of the texture files, then I use MS Paint to edit them. (I know, not a very quality program, but it's for a silly parody mod of a game that's 21 years old, what do you expect.) Hopefully, in the future, I will use Wally and/or MS Paint to edit map texture files. Hopefully, the first version of this project will be released on or by January 13th of this year, before I start college again.

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

Demo

NOTE: This is NOT meant to be played with HD models. The first version of a horribly mistranslated Half-Life is here. Sadly, I was not able to finish...

I'll admit, this is most times I've laughed in a Half-Life mod. Sharing this with the world, brb.
