How to change game language?
I bought Syberia bundle on Steam a few days ago, I have a mac and very happy that Syberia I is available on mac now!
When I launch game through Steam it starts in English. I see there are many different languages inside game folder.
My question is how to start the game in Russian? Maybe it can be set thought launch options? Because there is no language options in Properties at all (how there are many games have).

I don't have the game installed at the moment, but I was wondering the same thing because I don't like the English voice-acting and was wondering if the game was any better in French.

My experience with another game suggests that what you probably need to do is to install the game in English, the go to your game menu in the Library, click on Properties, and go to the language tab. From there you can probably configure the game to work in a language other than English.

Blackguards was a game made by a German company, and for many months there were several features that only worked in the German version. This frustrated a lot of people because if you just looked up language options in-game, everything except English was greyed out. But if you reconfigured from the game properties menu, you could configure the game to play in a second language besides English, and switch back and forth from the in-game options menu. I'm guessing that language options in Syberia work the same way.

If the protagonist is speaking French I might find her a bit more believable. No American investment banker or lawyer from the time period this game portrays would dress remotely like that: if she showed up to a job interview wearing that she would have been lucky to have been hired for the typing pool.

I can now confirm that there are many language options for the game, it's just that you have to make the language change by going through the Steam properties menu and the language tab, rather than changing the language in-game.

And yes, she sounds better in French than in English, even though her pronunciation of her last name is very funny.

Был баг вроде, из-за которого русского языка не было в списке у тех, кто купил игру не в комплекте со 2 частью. Вроде бы уже пофиксили.

HELLYEAHH!!! Resolved with Language Switcher.

First, and ru.lproj inside Syberia forder, then add game into the Language Switcher, choose Russian, and pick Always launch...

Seems, should be the same way if you want Polish or other unlisted languages.
