Some of the most commonly spoken languages in the world have yet to reach a global gaming audience.
For example, German, French, Japanese, Spanish, Russian and Italian have the most voiced games on Steam after English. Yet altogether they only make up about 12.4% of the world's population.
Meanwhile, Mandarin Chinese is spoken by about 13% of the world's population, yet German by itself has over five times as many voiced games on Steam as Mandarin.
A whopping 79 of the 100 most-spoken languages in the world have no voiced games on Steam at all. That includes 12 languages with more than 50 million speakers each!
