Age of Mythology change language

You can change your game text language in Age of Mythology to any of the supported languages for which you can find language .DLL files for (English/German/French/Russian etc.).  To install a different language game text all you need to do is replace the following files in your root Age of Mythology installation directory with the ones provided in the text language packs below:

xpacklanguage.dll (if Titans is installed)

+ English text language pack → download | local mirror
+ Russian text language pack → download | local mirror
+ German text language pack download | local mirror

Language files for the game taunts seem to be much harder to find. To change your game taunt language you need to completely replace the following directories (located in you Age of Mythology installation directory) with the ones in the taunt packs:

sound\xtaunts (if Titans is installed)

+ German taunts language pack → download | local mirror

If you’ve followed the above steps and are still having with the Age of Mythology change language issue, please post in the comments below. To increase your chances of a solution being found include as much detail as possible (which version of the game you’re running, what operating system you have, what video card you have and steps to reproduce the issue). Screenshots are also very useful!

      I updated the post so that it’s a little more clear. Just replace the language.dll xpacklanguage.dll files with ones in the text language packs above.

    This doesn’t work for Gold Edition.

        Is there a way to change the spoken language to English? I know you provided one for German, but is there one for English? I’m not very good with stuff like this, so perhaps I may have misunderstood your given instructions.

          You can, as long as you can find the English audio files. I never ended up finding them but if you do pls let me know and I’ll add the links to the post

      If you have the same folders and files in your install directory it should :)

    Hey I downloaded the language pack for the Gold edition and it changed the main menu and ui language to english. But for some reason the history is still in french, any tips?

      Nvm I actually figured it out I took the history with units and techs including table of contents and copied and pasted them from an english version of the EE. Now the history and the in game descriptions are in English thx for the help ne ways.
