Change the Language in Sims 2
But, The question is ..... HOW?
Usually, ALL The Sims 2 games are packed with multilingual language. It's just that the original configuration from the game set the language according to the location where you bought the game. For example, if you buy the game in China, then naturally it will be in Chinese. If you buy the game in Germany, then naturally it will be in German/Deutsch.
But inside the game itself, it has multiple language installed.
NOTE: PLEASE SAVE YOUR SAVED GAMES SOMEWHERE ELSE BEFORE TRYING TO DO THIS JUST FOR BACK UP
So first you have to go to the folder where you have installed your Sims 2. (Yes, you have to install it first before you are able to change the language.)
Then go to the TSData\Res\Locale folder :
C:\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Pets\TSData\Res\Locale
Inside this folder, look whether there is a folder called UK English.
If there is, then you can change the language. Or you can look for other languages that you would like it to be changed into.
Afterwards, you need to go to window and click on START on the bottom left, then click on RUN
Then type REGEDIT on run
After you do this, a Registry Editor window will pop up. Do not try to CHANGE any value in it unless you really understand what you are doing. Or you will cause a lot of problems and programs will not be able to run anymore because the window cannot remember or recognize this program as EVER been installed in your computer.
On the Regedit window, look for **Local_Machine\Software\EA Games\The Sims 2**
Then click on the Language section and change it to:
And change the locale section to:
(** means other written stuff, for example The Sims 2 University, Then i can write it as The Sims 2 U***, or the Sims 2 **)
You need to change ALL the value for ALL the Sims 2 game that you have installed. Including ALL the expansions.
If somehow after changing the language, The game cannot recognize one or more of the expansion game, you have to go back to Regedit, and....
