Or you could learn english. Why should they alter an entire game just to please you?

You seem to be speaking English pretty well right now. Don't forget, Valve is an American company, and any additional languages are prvilieges, not rights.

i use google translate for write a message in english ;)

I've ever say it were a requirement I just ask if it is possible to add other languages.

Valve didn't create Home, so language support isn't really their responsibility in the first place. Though you are right about language support being a priviledge, not a right.

Since Home is a lesser-known indie title with only one person actively supporting it, I doubt the resources could be garnered to create a proper French translation (or any other language). I think all games should at least have English, Spanish and French as standard languages, though, since they're the three most spoken languages in the Western world and all have the same root language (Latin).

I said Valve by accident, I meant to say the maker of this game isn't French so why would it be French

Japanese game developers still make an effort to make international ports with localized languages, what's the difference?

they suffice them to use a text file non encrypted for else can offer Translation of the games in other languages​​.

More available language = more sales for the developper game so it's all good for him too

I also would love to play it in german instead of english.. In my opinion every game should come with built-in German, Espanol, French, English and Mandarin/Chinese to eliminate every misunderstanding for foreigners... i dont like even Japanese only games... why should i like enlish only... but btw. its still a great game :-) Thank you Benjamin

French isnt more spoken than german ;) for example dutch is really familiar to german, if you're able to understand every german dialect, you're also able to understand dutch and english.
English, French and German arent Latin, their Germanic. We just use Latin letters, but there are no relations between german french and english (germanic) words on the one side, and espanol and italian on the other side (Latin).

The most widely spoken Germanic languages are English and German, with approximately 300–400 million native English speakers and over 100 million native German speakers.
Wiki Proof[en.wikipedia.org]

A proper translation could be less effort than fixing bugs.
The only problems may be on how the game engine is build up, if its that easy to add multilanguage support, or even if its nearly impossible... plus

I know I'm a little late, but this disturbs me, so I have to say it: french isn't a Germanic language, it's a Romance language, same as italian, spanish etc. ;)
