What is a EET file?

An EET file is a text file used by ESP/ESM Translator, a tool used to translate mods for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Fallout, and other Bethesda video games. It contains a database that allows players to translate a mod's text into other languages. EET files are primarily plain text files, so they can be opened and edited in any text editor.

More Information

.ESP and .ESM files are game data and plug-in files often used to mod Skyrim, Fallout, and other Bethesda video games. Many of these files contain only English text, which can make them difficult for non-English readers to use.

ESP/ESM Translator allows gamers to translate ESP and ESM mods' text into other languages. To do so, the gamer must first acquire or create an EET file, which is a translation database that contains multiple languages' versions of game-related text. For example, an EET file might contain multiple copies of a game's dialog and menu text written in different languages.

After a gamer acquires an EET file for a game, they can attempt to automatically translate ESP and ESM mods using the EET file and ESP/ESM Translator. Gamers can also manually write translations and store them in an EET file. Then, they can apply those translations to a mod's text.

How to open a EET file

You can open an EET file and use it to translate game mods in ESP/ESM Translator (Windows). To use an EET file with ESP/ESM Translator, you should place the file in the Esp Esm Translator/​BDD directory. When you open ESP/ESM Translator, the program will prompt you to choose a default EET database. You can also change the program's main database from the Options → Databases screen.

If you need to edit the text an EET file contains, you can do so by opening and editing the file in any text editor.
