I hope this is all right, and that my post is acceptable...

I was looking for a Simlish font, and found some great ones out there, but none of them quite matched the Simlish shown in Sims 3. So I made my own font. It's got twenty-six letters of the "alphabet" and some symbols, no numbers - but then again, it's not like there's any way of translating Simlish anyway, so. Figured maybe other people would find it useful, too.

The font works fine on my machine (Windows XP) but I don't have the ability to test it elsewhere, so if you notice any issues, please let me know.

Cheers,
J.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I've made my own font before, and it's no small task, so I really appreciate the time it must have taken you to create this.

Thank you so much; this is exactly what I was looking for.

good work! I tried to read the "sentence" in the Immajer-simlisk True Type file and it came out like this: Cantami o diva del Pelide Achille l'ira funesta. Was it just a case that you chose Virgilio's poem in iItalian?

If you look closely ingame you can see that simlish uses 2 writing systems

Just to clarify, unzip the file to a new folder (or your desktop) right click on the .ttf file and copy. Then open C:\WINDOWS\Fonts Right click again and paste. That was how I had to do it, anyway. This is on a Vista platform, not sure how it works for anyone else.

This font works great, even if the creator hasn't been here for awhile. I use Vista. I extracted the .ttf in the download folder, opened Computer>C:>Windows>Fonts, then File>Install New Font. The program found it right away, and I hit install. Had to give permission, but then it was all set. Can find it in various programs. Perfect for my uses!

Much better than the older Sims 2 versions of Simlish because it actually doesn't look like English. When you can read exactly what the text says at a glance, it might as well just be English anyway. Now we have a real obfuscated language where we either have to decode it or just accept that it's not meant to be read in the first place and is intended as an international text Macguffin.

If you ever come back and read this, thank you much.

I have tried to make own font before, but given up after a few letters because it is a lot of work. I was thinking of making my own simlish font, but I am happy that I do not need to.

Thank you, inkandchaos, wherever you are!

I just used this to translate the Sims 4 promo ad, and all I got was this Wikipedia entry!

Yes, I honestly killed an afternoon by translating the ad page from Simlish, then realizing it was Latin, ran it through Google Translate, and a friend told me about lorem ipsum, placeholder text. D'oh!

I know this may not be the only Simlish font online, but I'm glad you took the time to do what I'm perhaps too lazy or impatient to do and create one and made it easy for me to find and download. I kinda wish you had included numbers, although I'm pretty sure that most Simlish fonts use Arabic numbers anyway. My only concern is that I might have to switch fonts when I want to type a number, assuming that nothing shows up otherwise. I haven't tried it yet, so I guess I'll find out. Either way, thanks for your effort and creativity! It looks amazing!
