The Sims 3 change language

★★★★ Newbie
 I bought The Sims 3 on steam and installed it in Spanish since I'm from Mexico, played for a few days and everything was fine. Today I launch The game and tells me that there's a new patch, proceed to install it and after that, The language of The game changed to English! Now I can't play with The previous saved game that I had. How can I change The language back to Spanish?

They had this issue with the asian version in 1.47. Steam has their own patches that are offered through Steam. Did you check the Steam forum if other people have the same issue ?

What is your base game version right now ?

To find out, open your launcher and hover over the little base game icon in the lower left part of the launcher. It should say 1.48.

1.48 is the version of my game and yes, it seems that Steam screwed up with this new patch. Thanks anyway!

Re: The Sims 3 change language

You need to change a registry value. Open a cmd window. And run regedit. Find

 

(32 bit)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE

Sims

 

(64 bit)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE

Wow6432node

Sims

 

In the right panel there is Locale

 

double click Locale

 

change the Value data from en-US to es-ES

 

click ok

exit regedit

 

you may need to do this for all packs

hmmm...   Did you click ok after you changed the data? Try rebooting the computer as that key may only be read on boot . If the reboot doesn't work check to see if the key is actually set. If you are not the administrator you may have to run regedit with administartor rights.
