Among Us gets an official Irish translation

An ancient language and one of the most popular video games of the past year have collided with the launch of the official Irish localization of Among Us. The hugely popular sci-fi whodunnit game is now available to play in the Irish language as of this month.

The project was spearheaded by Úna-Minh Kavanagh, a fluent Irish speaker, writer, content creator, and Twitch streamer from Kerry in the southwest of Ireland. After her Twitter callout for an official version was met with an enthusiastic response, she was approached by Callum Underwood from Robot Teddy, the consulting firm supporting Innersloth developer Among Us. Kavanagh and a team of translators from across the globe got to work to turn their Irish modded version into an official localization.

“During the pandemic, naturally, many people flocked to an outlet to keep them occupied and connected with their friends, and for me, one of those outlets was Among Us,” she explains. “Before Among Us was even on the cards, though, I had joined a group of translating enthusiasts, and we were diving into some large-scale projects and translations. What drew us in was that [Among Us] was significantly smaller than the games that we had been attempting to translate, and it was a timely game currently in use.”
