Leroux: What does it do? Can it change the language of the OS for one single game only and automaticaly switch back when I quit?
You can create a shortcut with it for the game of your choice and it will launch with the language you have selected.
I found something similar when I tried playing Assassin's Creed 2 years ago when the install language defaulted to Danish and I just let it use that and it turned out that now the entire game was in Danish and I couldn't change it without uninstalling the entire game and then reinstall using English language for the installer. That was damn annoying and yes, give us options so we can choose what we want.

Ok, thanks. If the support won't be able to help me, I'll try this.
My system language is set to english, but I have a norwegian keyboard, and I may have set the input method to norwegian (for convenience, since sometimes other people use my PC, and I don't need constant enquiries as to why they have to type æ to get a semicolon).
While I've never had a game auto-change to norwegian (maybe it is not a common supported language), but a lot of keyboard commands that games give get translated. Suffice it to say, I now know what mellomrom and skift mean :D.
Off the top of my head, I remember specifically that Darksiders and Deus Ex: Human Revolution does this.

I can guess what skift is, but what's mellomrom? :D
Spacebar :D
That's one reason why I like how we handle our games with multiple languages: one installer per language, if possible :)

Leroux: So, I'm necro'ing my own thread from two years ago, but I've actually found a game now that completely ignores all language settings in Steam, too. My Steam language is English and the game's language is set to English in Steam, too, and still Castle of Illusion forces German subtitles on me, just because my OS language is German. I checked google and the game's forums, but apparantly noone has found any solution for playing the game in English other than changing the language of your OS. Why, oh why, Sega? That's not customer-friendly ease-of-use, in my opinion, it's infantilizing. :(
Superfrog HD is another retarded offender. Here is apparently a workaround, haven't it tested yet : http://www.gog.com/forum/general/release_superfrog_hd/post11

Maybe you should take a closer look at Superfog HD (that uses exactly that kind of annoying automatic "preferred" language). ;)

Edit: Ninja-Frog was faster than me.

That's why I said "if possible" :) If all the languages are set in the executable or elsewhere that doesn't involve separate language files then there's not much we can do :(
