Tired of listening to the awkwardly translated dialogue in Dying Light 2 Stay Human? This quick guide will teach you how to separate the default speech and text languages. The goal is to let you play the game with English audio and non-English subtitles.
STEP 1: Go to the game installation folder
Open the Dying Light 2 game directory and follow the path below.
Dying Light 2 > ph > work > data_lang
STEP 2: Delete your local speech data folder
There are two more folders inside data_lang. The first is speech_en, which is the data folder for English audio in Dying Light 2 Stay Human. The second folder is the one for your local language. Here is the list of languages that have full audio support in the game.
- English = en
- French = fr
- German = de
- Japanese = ja
- Polish = pl
- Portuguese = pt
- Russian = ru
- Simplified Chinese = zh
- Spanish = es
Find your local language folder and delete it.
For example, if you want English audio but French subtitles, then delete speech_fr.
STEP 3: Launch Dying Light 2
Now you can enjoy the game without having to listen to the awkwardly translated phrases. Hopefully, Techland will release a future patch to fix this issue. Especially since the game heavily uses dialogue for its plot exposition.
Dying Light 2 Stay Human is the sequel to Dying Light, the popular first-person zombie survival game released in 2015. The story is set 15 years after the first game, and players can once again enjoy parkour mechanics in a post-apocalyptic world. Dying Light 2 was released in February 3, 2022 for PC, PlayStation, Switch, and Xbox.
