Between Us‘success continues to grow, and one of the measures of success is just how many official translations something has – including minority languages and languages that are no longer even spoken, such as the Latin translations of Harry Potter, from ancient Greek and of the Scotsman.
According to their Steam page, Among us it supports 12 languages so far, including Korean, Brazilian Portuguese and Russian, but now we can add “Gaelige” to the list – the language of Ireland.
The localization team was led by Úna-Minh Kavanagh, a gamer and streamer, who worked with Brian C. Mac Giolla Mhuire (who led the translation of PlayerUnknown’s Battleground in Irish), Cormac Cinnsealach, and Mike Drinkwater.
Kavanagh said in an interview with The Irish Mirror that the initiative was taken by Callum Underwood, the consulting firm that supports Innersloth, who contacted Kavanagh after seeing his tweet asking for the language to be added to the game at the end of 2020.
“Irish is a language with a large and growing minority, but it is ignored today, especially in the case of technology and modern media.
The Among Us translation is the first significant translation ever made into Irish for a very popular game. It’s a cultural victory for the Irish community. ”

But we know that’s your main question – what is “sus” in Irish? “Bain triail as a gcluiche agus cífidh tú,” says Kavanagh – you have to play to find out.
Are You Happy To Finally Play Between Us In Irish? Let me know in the comments. Also, sorry for this translation. I don’t really speak Irish, so I had to use Google Translate. Forgive me.
