Hey I'm not sure where to ask a question like this, but I would like to change my default skyrim language from English to German, and I'm wondering how that will affect my mod setup. I got >200 mods and I havent really seen a question like this asked yet. I mainly want to change the language to German to increase my German language skills, and though I know modded stuff wont show up in german, will it break my game in other ways to change the vanilla game language in steam? I'm using MO, is it possible to set up different language profiles?

 

I just feel like having the vanilla assets in English, like the main quests that I've already played through a bajillion times in English in a different language would make it a little fresher in my next playthrough and stuff.

 

Feel free to tell me all about your multilingual playthroughs!

In most cases it's possible to use English mods with German game language without breaking anything, but there will be a mixture of English/German obviously.
 
There's only one exception. If a mod comes with localized string files and it doesn't have included string files for the language you are playing the game, it will simply crash. But that should be very rare and can be fixed easily by renaming the files.
 
However, there are translations for many of the popular mods, either here on Nexus, or you can also look here.
