Localization files govern how text and dialogue are used and shown in-game in the user's preferred language. This includes everything from item descriptions to achievement names.

For example, a Winger would be known as a Flügelstürmer in German.

The files below contain the appropriate text translations for 28 supported languages as determined by the Steam Translation Server (STS).

To help translate for the Steam Community or Steam games into your language, please visit the STS website.

Trivia

  • From January 17th, 2012 to April 27th, 2012, Valve played a little running gag in the updates notes by having the phrase "Updated Localization Files" in either different languages, unicodes, sarcasm tones, or even QR Image code.
