Football Manager 2017’s initial lack of any Chinese translation options resulted in a wave of negative reviews for the game on Steam. It’s taken a few months, but Sports Interactive have today added a language option for Simplified Chinese characters.
Anybody wanting to make use of this new option should do the following: In your Steam library, right-click on Football Manager 2017 (or Football Manager Touch Edition 2017), navigate to ‘Properties’ and then click ‘Language’. Select ‘Simplified Chinese’ and the game will then automatically download the language file.
Then, load up the game, select ‘Preferences’ from the main menu, and select ‘Simplified Chinese’ from the drop-down language menu.
