This is occasionally heard in place of real voice acting in dialogs that would otherwise be mute.

The general background noise that's supposed to be the hundreds if not thousands of people speaking should be ignored. Effectively, only cases where actual dialogs the player partakes in or supposedly listens in on should be counted.

This is NOT for properly used constructed languages, such as Klingon or Esperanto.

Normally these come with subtitles in proper language.
