Warudo comes with a built-in localization system that allows you to create multilingual plugins.

Currently, Warudo officially supports the following languages:

Simplified Chinesezh_CN

Localizing Strings

All built-in localized strings are stored in the Localizations directory in the Warudo data folder. If you open any of the JSON files, you will see a list of key-value pairs, where the key is the string ID and the value is the localized string.

To get a localized string, simply call the extension method Localized() on a string ID:

using Warudo.Core.Localization; // Import the namespace that contains the extension method

// Assume the user language is set to English
"FACE_TRACKING".Localized() // "Face Tracking"
"ALIVE_TIME_DESCRIPTION".Localized() // "The prop will be destroyed after this time."

Note if the string is not yet localized in the current language, the string will fall back to English; if the string is not found in English, the string ID will be returned.


Unity's HumanBodyBones enum can also be localized using the Localized() extension method. For example, HumanBodyBones.Head.Localized() will return "Head" in English and "头" in Simplified Chinese.

Adding Localizations

If you are creating a plugin mod, the recommended way to add localizations is to create a directory called Localizations in your mod folder. Inside this directory, create a JSON file for each language you want to support. The JSON file should contain the localized strings in the following format:

"en": {
"MY_STRING": "My String"
"zh_CN": {
"MY_STRING": "我的字符串"
"ja": {
"MY_STRING": "私の文字列"

You can also create one JSON file for each language.

When the plugin is loaded, Warudo will automatically load the localized strings from the JSON files.

If you are not creating a plugin mod, you can also add localized strings directly using Context.LocalizationManager:

var localizationManager = Context.LocalizationManager;
localizationManager.SetLocalizedString("MY_STRING", "en", "My String");
localizationManager.SetLocalizedString("MY_STRING", "zh_CN", "我的字符串");
localizationManager.SetLocalizedString("MY_STRING", "ja", "私の文字列");
