Simlish is the unofficial language of The Sims. It was created specifically for the game, and has no real-world counterpart. While the language has a basic structure, its vocabulary is vast and ever-changing.

Simlish language

Simlish is primarily spoken by Sims, but can also be used by players to communicate with their characters.

Sims can learn Simlish from other Sims, or from devices like the in-game Lin-Z. There is a secret vocabulary to be discovered, so experimentation is key to learning all there is to know about this unique tongue.


Is it possible to learn Simlish?

Simlish is the fictional language featured in EA's The Sims franchise. It consists of random word order and made-up words, and has no attachment to actual languages.

This almost completely removes the need to localise voices and text in The Sims' world. However, this means that no matter how hard we try, it's nearly impossible to learn Simlish.

The best way to try and understand Simlish is to listen out for common words and word order, and then try and piece together what the Sim is trying to say.

However, even this can be difficult, as there is no consistency in how words are used. The only way to really become proficient in Simlish is to play The Sims for many hours and try to pick up on the meaning of words through context.
