Quick Overview

The switchlanguage command in Stellaris is used to change the language in the game.

When executed, it will reload the language files, thereby allowing the game to appear in the language that you have requested.

This option is useful when you want to play the game in a different language other than the default one.

In-Depth Description

The Stellaris command switchlanguage is primarily used by developers or modders.

It reloads all the localization files and switches the language in the game without needing to restart the game entirely.

Localization files are files within a game that contain all translatable texts. These include menus, dialogue, tooltips, and all other in-game text.

By reloading these files, the game can update any changes made to the text in real time, which is particularly useful for developers or modders making changes that affect in-game text.

How to Open the Command Console

In Stellaris, cheats are executed from the command console, a text box that you type commands into.

To open the command console press the ~(tilde) key, which is typically located under ESC (escape).

If your keyboard does not have that key, or pressing ~ does not work, try the following keys:

  • ~
  • SHIFT + 2
  • SHIFT + 3
  • ALT + 2 + 1

Type your command into the console, and then press ENTER .
