Help translate The Mammoth into your language!
We'd love to make The Mammoth as accessible to as wide an audience as possible, so we're looking for help translating the game into other languages! Being a 5-minute tale, it's only 378 words in English - easy!

If you'd like to help, simply grab this file[], and open it in your favourite text editor. You should see lines like this:

msgctxt ",4510E539456532B2F8D17781FD675BD1_Subtitle3" msgid "The Mammoth turned west to find her child." msgstr ""

You can see the source English text in the line that begins msgid; simply add the text for your language between the quote marks in the line that begins msgstr. Once you're done, email the file to us at

Check below if your language is already translated! Don't see your language: then get in touch and we can almost certainly add it!

Hello, i tried to translate the store page of the game in French :

Parler de l'histoire "5 millions années d'un mammouth" en 5 minutes.

Le Mammouth: La peinture d'une cave parle de l'histoire "Les 5 millions d'années d'un mammouth" en 5 minutes.Il s'agit d'une histoire qui raconte une perte inévitable
-Inspiré des peintures préhistoriques, jouer une histoire écrite sur le mur d'une grotte.
-Cherchez votre troupeau sur une immense plaine.
-Retrouver et protéger votre enfant.
-Combattez les chasseurs de mammouth.
-Faites l'expérience d'une narration dynamique au fur et à mesure que vous racontez votre histoire.

Awesome, thanks bugzcoz!
Could you also translate the quotes perhaps? :D

“An atmospheric little work, like a cave painting come to life”
“A beautifully crafted and surprisingly emotional tale”
“Addresses the human desire to understand our own smallness”

here it is :steamhappy: :

"Un petit travail atmosphérique , comme si une peinture d'une cave devient réalité."

"Un magnifique conte et incroyablement émotionnel."

"S'adresse au désir humain pour comprendre notre petitesse."

Is there any way to test the translation before sending it?

I translated a game in Serbian and sent it on your mail.

Thanks to everyone who's contributed! I'm afraid there's no way for you to test it before sending, but I'll put together a new version with all the new languages in the next week or so and put that on a beta branch on Steam, and you can check it there.

Thanks everybody for contributing! Putting your translations in the game now so you can check them out soon! :)
Eyes  [developer] Nov 29, 2017 @ 7:29am 
The translations are now available on a separate Steam branch for testing.

To check them out:

- right-click the game in your steam library and select properties
- Go to the Betas tab
- Select the "new_languages" beta branch

If the betas tab or branch doesn't appear, you may need to restart steam.

Let us know how it looks to you and if you need to have any changes made - and thanks again!

Note there's a new subtitles option, which might default to off if you played already. Will fix that for the proper release :) But you might need to manually switch it on (press play, wait for the intro to end, then press Esc)
