September 29, 2023: Learn what to do if you need to change language in Starfield with our guide.

If you want to learn exactly how to change language in Starfield, this article is right up your street. As a Starfield player, you’re in for a treat as this role-playing game looks to be a brilliant development, brought to you by Bethesda Game Studios who are the award-winning creators of the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Featuring a whole host of character creation options, you can begin an adventurous journey into the depths of outer space. But before you join Constellation - a group of space explorers who’ve set out to find numerous artefacts across the galaxy - you’re going to want to make sure the correct language settings for audio and text commentary are in place. After all, how will you communicate with the rest of the crew if you don’t understand what they’re saying?

Anyway, let’s get right down to it with a quick rundown on how you can tweak this particular setting within the game.

How to change the language settings in Starfield

To make changes to the language in Starfield, you need to head over to the general properties section of this game, which is found in your Steam library.

This is done by going to your library of downloaded games within the Steam interface and right clicking the Starfield title. After you’ve done this, a drop-down menu will appear with four different options titled as follows:

  • Remove from favourites
  • Add to
  • Manage
  • Properties

Simply select the “Properties…” option from this menu visible on your screen. From there, you’ll be presented with various tabs for the different categories of settings that you can change in the Starfield game.

The next thing you need to do is click on the “General” tab, which should bring up the option to change language in the game. On the right-hand side of this section, you’ll see a dropdown box for languages and once you select it, a whole list of different languages will be displayed on your screen.

At this juncture, all you have to do is select the language you want to change to and the game will automatically update the language to the option you chose in this particular menu.

Now, making this change may take a little bit of time to be implemented, as all of the in-game text and audio needs to be replaced with language that reflects your choice in the settings.

So, let’s quickly recap how to change language in Starfield:

  1. Open your Steam application on PC and head over to your library of games
  2. Right-click the “Starfield” game and select “Properties…” from the drop-down menu
  3. Select the “General” tab.
  4. Click on the language dropdown box located on the right-hand side of the screen
  5. Select the language that you want to change to (e.g. Polish).
  6. Wait for the game to update the language you chose
