Localization is the term used to refer to video games being translated into different languages. The following is a list of languages that our editors have documented so far that translations have been made for, either for commercial or open-source software. Some websites tend to show the native language name rather than an English translation of it; because this is an English-language wiki, the list will be sorted into alphabetical order based on the English translation for the language, after listing the English-language derivatives first.
