HI @ZeroArcana

 

merged your thread with text issues but could you update your game to the newest version to make sure it's still an issue ?

Typographic error in Piano Vol 3 Book. *Minuets is spelled Minutes.

★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Cat & Dogs, City Living, Get Together, Get to Work, Parenthood, Vampires, Dine Out, Spa Day, Outdoor Retreat, Laundry Day Stuff, Toddler Stuff, Fitness Stuff, Bowling Night Stuff, Vintage Glamour Stuff, Backyard Stuff, Kids Room Stuff, Romantic Garden Stuff, Movie Hangout Stuff, Spooky Stuff, Cool Kitchen Stuff, Perfect Patio Stuff, Luxury Party Stuff, Holiday Celebration Pack, Awesome Hats, Life of the Party Digital Content, Digital Soundtrack, Up All Night
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Open up the list of books to order and look at the piano books. Piano Vol Book 3 has a typo in the title. The title reads: PIANO VOL 3: CONCERTOS, MINUTES, AND SONATAS Unless this is a purposeful joke, MINUTES should be MINUETS. A minuet is a Baroque and Classical-period dance of medium-slow speed in a triple meter. Composers such as Haydn and Mozart, and even Beethoven used them in their Sonatas and Symphonies, and Concertos. They were also composed in the Baroque by Bach, Handel Couperin, and others during that period.
What happens when the bug occurs? Nothing other than I noticed the typographical error in the book title. It's not a game breaking error, but is one that should be fixed at some point.
What do you expect to see? The title to be spelled correctly.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure

Merged this with the collection thread. This might actually be on purpose though

This news item about Triple Boost Week that pops up when launching the game has an incorrect use of "less." It should be "fewer" in this case, because trips are countable.
