Latest available The Sims 4 Language String-files for users of Origin/ZLOrigin. [VERSION 1.46.18.1020]

*Note* this guide is mainly relevant for users who are playing with the Origin & ZLOrigin versions of The Sims 4!

Hello,

Since the Origin & ZLOrigin versions of The Sims 4 by default only contain one display language (namely, the one that has been chosen during the initial setup), you can find yourself in a slight predicament if you desire to use a different in-game display language. 

This guide is not relevant for people using the 'classical' cracked version of The Sims 4, as these repacks - like on G4TW - oftentimes already contain all 17 language versions, and switching languages in these cracked versions is easy.

In Origin & ZLOrigin however, things are more tricky. The way one has to go about it, as exemplified on ZLOrigin, is to go under the Game Properties of The Sims 4.




And under "Game language" choose the new language that you desire to play the game in. Now, after you choose that new language and click "OK", the entire game installation will be verified, before the new language strings are eventually downloaded and installed. A very tedious process; in my own case, fetching just one language 'cost' nearly 10 minutes.

So what users of Origin & ZLOrigin can otherwise try, is this here.

1) Download the latest available (1.46.18.1020) Language String Files here. Extract with WinRAR, and copy/paste all folders, over your TS4-installation on Origin or ZLOrigin. When prompted, please choose to replace all existing files as well.

2) Then you should also change the language of the game, in the registry. Use the small download here. Extract again with WinRAR, double-click on the file with your desired language, ignore the warnings, and confirm the import of the registry entries. Important note: you only need to download (& import) these registry files once. If you already downloaded these registry files in the past there there is a new update, you do NOT need to re-download from this link again. Just grab the string files under #1 above. Then you should be fine! Good luck - and be sure to check back in this thread for future versions of the Language Files.



Extra note: you can ALSO apply these language string files on a CODEX-version of The Sims 4, that you downloaded from a different source than Games4theworld! Most other uploaders only have one language in their repacks, and that language is usually English. If you then change the display language on these games, you end up with an error.
