I love the outfit that sim is wearing! Where'd you get it?
And also, thanks for putting this together! I always wondered about some of the words!!!!

bitterquill said...

This must have taken a lot of work. I never really thought about learning Simlish but it's fun to know there are translations for some of it.

BTW anon, the outfit in the image is one of the downloads for the Katy Perry edition of Showtime.

I'd like to learn Simlish! It'd be cool to know what they're saying.

MV said...

What about Fwabaloo. I didn't see that up there, but it means fall in love. I only know that because instead of singing "If I could write you song make you fall in love...." I sing "If I could write you a song make you fwabaloo....".

I will try to see if I can find any more words, but thats one word I am sure of. :D

sugarshoes9cc said...

I remembered when I played on The Sims 2 Castaway on ps2 loads. I liked the "Love Is Wicked" song alot. From that I learned my first simlish word: Wicka. It means Wicked :)

How to Make Your Sims Speak English

Maxis, the manufacturer of "The Sims," designed the game to appeal to people around the world. The manufacturer went so far as to create a special language called "Simlish" for the characters. Since the creation of the game, players have been trying to decipher this unique language and have even compiled a dictionary to decipher the "Simlish" language. Maxis created a cheat code that allowed players to change the language from "Simlish" to English in "The Sims 3."

Things You'll Need

The Sims 3



Start your Sims 3 game and choose the lot you wish to play.

Hold down "Control," "Alt" and "Shift" simultaneously on your keyboard and release. The top of your screen will show a long black box--this is your cheat bar.

Type in the cheat code "Englishspeakingsim" without the quotation marks. The cheat code is one word with no spaces. Press the "Enter" key on your keyboard. Now your Sims will be speaking English.

A Sims 4 developer recently announced a new word, called "Yibsim", which means "best friend." Thank you so much for this resourceful list!!

Anonymous said...

On the Sims 2 for the Nintendo DS, some say things like: Ooba Deeshna (Deshnar)! (when they're angry), Teera mar! (when they're happy), Sepa tie ee (when angry or loopy, trying to calm them down). There is plenty more, I'm sure. I own a LOT of Sims games. They tend to stick in your head after playing for awhile and I often caught myself saying it. :3

Ronnie de Noube said...

Suul suul all! If I may add a couple more points of information --

(1) All the above refers to spoken Simlish, i.e., what Sims say to one another. A different process is involved when an existing popular song is adapted into Simlish.

(2) Some words, such as "voo" being "you", or "sul-sul" for "aloha" (hello/goodbye), are kept in the language and taught to new voice actors as new games or songs come out.

(3) But even so, the dialect is different between TS2 and TS3. For example, I am a TS3 Sim and we say "degdeg" or "dagdag" mainly for "goodbye", but I know that our honored TS2 cousins use it for "hello" as well.

(4) The July 13 comment alleging a cheat for making Sims speak English is just false. It is a total pile of frackin wibwob. Within the game files are audio clips containing music, sound effects, and Simlish -- only. So, you know, brahsnort ehblah kahna iggyribs yiptor and don't believe everything you read, eu kabafa? Varnoov.

Shannon Louise said...

I'm sure one phrase sounds like they are saying 'Ran Kan Tinni Moon' I'm sure that means something like move out of the way or get out,my sims always say it when someone is in the toilet/bathroom and they are in the same room or when someone is in the way!

I just wanted to say thanks for creating this dictionary, it's really going to help with my blog and apart from that I think it's a real sweet idea.

I've direct linked this page on my blog so people who check out mine will know where to come.

I was just wondering if you could also link me to the site you got this blog theme from (the polka dots) I had it once before and lost it and I've searched every where for it and couldn't find it until now. I've tried the link at the bottom but I still can't find it on the site, maybe you could help?

Dag Dag! x
