Larian Studios’ massive RPG Baldur’s Gate 3 is filled with millions of lines of dialogue, all translated into multiple languages. However, the translators that helped to bring the game to a worldwide audience have not been properly credited.

Video game localiser Marc E.G. shared an image on Twitter of the credits for the game’s Brazilian localisation team. In the credits, only the executives of translation company Altagram Group are listed, not the actual workers on the game.

“Translators for Baldur’s Gate 3 worked for 3 years translating more 1 million words and Altagram Group only credited their execs and leads,” they said. “Let's be clear: this practice is always unethical, but here, like with Persona before, it's downright EVIL.”

English to Russian game translator Dmitry Kornyukhov also commented on the game’s lack of proper credits, saying:

“One more time or all the people in the back: CEOs and COOs do not localise your game. Translators do! Starting to think that Larian Studios… do not care about this, though. Absolute silence from them is very disappointing.”

In a statement to Eurogamer, Larian Studios claimed that this will be rectified in the next patch for Baldur’s Gate 3. Additionally, the company explained that this discrepancy was all the fault of Altagram who didn’t release any names of their internal workers.

“This was all Altagram group," revealed a spokesperson for Larian. "We reached out, and compelled them to fix this. Full credits will be coming in Hotfix 3. As soon as we were made aware, we took steps with Altagram to remedy this immediately."

Baldur’s Gate 3 is an absolutely massive game with 170 hours of cinematics, 17,000 endings and millions of words. Over a four year period, translators worked on bringing the massive RPG to other regions around the world, and they deserve to be properly credited for the work.


Baldur’s Gate 3 may not have any expansions in the works, but the game is not done with development. Alongside new patches, Larian is planning to release its PlayStation 5 port on September 6th. The game also has an Xbox Series port in the works, but Series S is causing too many issues.

Despite everything, Baldur’s Gate 3 is still a fantastic game. In our review, we explain how the game is one of the deepest RPGs we’ve ever played. Once everyone is properly credited, everyone should play it.
