♥ Originally, they looked at Navajo code breakers from World War II, but eventually developed a "gibberish" language with a combination of Latin, Ukrainian, Navajo, and Tagalog.
♥ Simlish is a combination of improvised sounds and key words and phrases. Although Simlish is not a real language in that it has no grammar or syntax, it does have a lot of vocabulary. The actors who provide the voices improvise as well. Stephen Kerin and Gerri Lawlor were the first Sim voices and they were the ones responsible for creating the overall 'sound' of the language.
♥ As of "Sims 3", Simlish consists of more than 40,000 audio samples to create the language. It has developed rapidly over time with the emergence of new "Sims" versions and expansions. In fact, the term 'Simlish' now refers to similar 'language' in other games as well.
♥ SimCopter was the first game to feature Simlish.
♥ In both SimCity 4 and SimCity Societies, citizens can be heard speaking in Simlish if the player zooms in close enough.
♥ Simlish was developed further by linguists and speech actors for use in the Sims.
♥ A great deal of simlish is created in song, beginning with Hot Date. Imitating songs may be the best way to learn to sound simlish.
♥ Simlish is developed by the Sims team by understanding Ukranian, Finnish and Tagalog (Philippines official Language.) It may be a little easy after knowing these two languages.
♥ When the Sims are talking, look at the bubble and the words. The bubble could be a great giveaway to words.
