Hi,

I live in France and i'm thinking of buying the DVD version of Skyrim, but i don't want to play it in french. Is it possible to change Skyrim's language (text and dialogue) to english when using the DVD version?

Thank you in advance!

All versions of Skyrim use steam, it should be possible by switching your language settings, simu;lar to how ppl get Japanese audio with English subs, like here.

I own a Spanish copy and are currently playing in English.

You have to change the language in steam library/ game properties and choose the desired language. Once you choose English it will download the required files, probably took me 30/40 minutes.

Just to make sure, you have a Spanish DVD copy right?

This would probably negatively affect mods that alter dialogue, right?

Yes I do have a Spanish retailer copy.

Installed it and wanted to play game in English, changed language on properties tab on Steam Library.

Actually it doesnīt matter wether you buy Skrim on the DVD or on the Steam Shop. The only thing that makes you own the game is the key that comes with the DVD and allows you to register the game to your Steam Account. The only difference is that you donīt need to download the whole game from steam but have a DVD from which you can install a part of the game (you will have to download all the patches and the language files, though). Changing the language is no problem in the PC version...consoles canīt change the language.

Try revalidating Skyrim's files with this quick link: steam://validate/72850
Of course you should have changed the language in Steam by then.
