Default -- Change Game Language --
Hello guys, here is a really easy and quick tutorial on how to change your game's language.

If you would like a program to do it for you, check my The Sims 4 Game Tools program.

Step 1 - Download the language pack. The language pack is below - make sure you download the one for the latest patch.
Step 2 - Place the acceptable Strings_LANGUAGE_COUNTRY.package file into your installation folder.
Step 3 - Open The Registry Editor/Regedit
- Search for 'regedit' in the Start menu.
Step 4 - Change The Sims 4 Locale
- In the registry editor go to this location:
- 32-bit Users: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> Maxis -> The Sims 4
- 64-bit Users: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> Wow6432Node -> Maxis -> The Sims 4
- Change the 'Locale' tag with your wanted language:
- Czech: cs_CZ
- Danish: da_DK
- German: de_DE
- English: en_US
- Spanish: es_ES
- Finnish: fi_FI
- French: fr_FR
- Italian: it_IT
- Japanese: ja_JP
- Korean: ko_KR
- Dutch: nl_NL
- Norwegian: no_NO
- Polish: pl_PL
- Portuguese (Brazil): pt_BR
- Russian: ru_RU
- Swedish: sv_SE
- Chinese (Traditional): zh_TW
- I will be changing my game to Spanish, so I will use "es_ES" in the 'Locale' tag.
Step 5 - Close out of the Registry Editor
Step 6 - Launch The Sims 4
- Launching The Sims 4 will act like you just installed it, you can move your saves & mods only to the new documents folder.

Sorry for the late reply, but unfortunately, this is a problem with Region Locks. [A 'bug' or problem EA caused to make it so some countries have to play in their native languages]. I am still trying to find a solution for this.

It is required to put file GDFBinary_(locale).dll in Origin Games\The Sims 4\_Installer. For example - if someone wants polish in his/her game he/she needs file GDFBinary_pl_PL.dll. Same will english - but instead GDFBinary_pl_PL.dll he/she will need GDFBinary_en_US.dll.

Except that doesn't help at all, when English isn't an option. I didn't realise when I got the game it wouldn't have English as an option, and I am nowhere near Europe (I live in South Africa). I just want to play The Sims 4 in English, is that too much to ask for??
