Steam has begun listing Subtitle support on Steam pages


After a petition a few weeks ago Valve has apparently updated Steam pages to include more comprehensive language information. For examples see the Half-Life 2 and Team Fortress 2 pages.


While this is helpful, it's unfortunately currently inaccurate. For example, Half-Life 2 definitely has subtitle support but it isn't listed on its Steam page. For now at least, please confirm in the game itself whether or not a game supports subtitles, do not use the Steam page.


I also wanted to suggest updating our Audio Settings template to support these new additions. Specifically what languages these games support. Thoughts?

I promoted this article if that's okay with you. To receive notifications you will need to 'follow' this topic.


I've found that PCGamingWiki does provide more accurate information than the Steam store, e.g. Braid lists Steam Cloud as a feature, but it does not work.


Interested in language support. However I am worried about the tables taking up way too much room. I don't want a new table row for every single language, but maybe we could have a single row containing a list of every language supported in a horizontal, comma separated list. However that would mean missing out 'full audio' and 'subtitles' for every language.


Is there a way to do have a full list without it using up too much space? Maybe we could do a collapsed table.

But is there any point to those rows? I mean the languages often differ region to region - personally, I often only get English + Polish, Czech, Slovak or something similar, because of the region I buy games in. Another thing entirely are older games which are localized only in specific releases. I don't think it's realistic to consider adding those three rows due to all of those complications.

Good point, I had forgotten about that. I definitely agree, adding those would be overly complicated.


Does anyone know if there's a website dedicated to this kind of thing?
