IMGUI Translation Loader

Unity's Immediate Mode GUI is often used to quickly debug Unity games. However, the IMGUI is also used by many game mods and plug-ins to generate in-game GUIs.

This plug-in allows to easily translate these GUIs.

Main features

  • Based on YATranslator
  • Built for Sybaris/ReiPatcher and UnityInjector
  • Translates GUIs on by-assembly basis
  • Support for RegExes
  • Supports dumping original strings
  • Performance overhead as low as possible
  • Two translation modes: by-plugin and global


Yes, this plug-in is most likely not the most unique. For instance, I know of CM3D2.UnityUITranslator, but I have yet to locate it. I already had working core for translation loading, and modifying it to work with IMGUI was simple enough.

I decided against merging this feature into YATranslator simply because of performance factor: YATranslator has many powerful features, but there are simply too many of them to do such a simple task. Moreover, I'm quite sure not everyone wants to have the all-in-one package like YAT: some may simply want to translate just the IMGUI.

Note that translation IMGUI comes with its own costs: consult the FAQ for more info.
