for anyone who runs into this, make sure to change the ":" to a space, like this for a modern version of windows (or it won't work at all)

 

"C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\SPORE\Sporebin\SporeApp.exe" –L en-us

I am running Spore from the Origin launcher and however I have tried, it never switched to English.

I set both English (GB) and English (US) as well as I added the command line option "-L en-us" (originally, also -L:en-us).

 

How can I switch the language of the game to English from within Origin?

Hi @BonanzaGroove 

 

You cannot change the language for Spore directly in Origin. The game takes over the PC main language. But follow the tips above, so you can manually change the language.

While installing the game (SPORE) I selected the Spanish language, but the game continues to show all the information in English. Also, I have defined Spanish as the language for Origin and for the Windows OS, but still the same. How do I change it to Spanish? My son understands a little but it is more difficult for him and I don't want him to lose motivation. I purchased and downloaded the game today.

Hi @edudaky 

 

1. Right click on the Spore icon

2. Under > «C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\SPORE\Sporebin\SporeApp.exe»

3. Choose Properties

4. Add language code at the end «That's how it looks» C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\SPORE\Sporebin\SporeApp.exe" –L:es-es

Stay healty!
