Will Units speak their own language (French speak French, Aztec speak Aztec) instead of heavily accented English ?

No.


Have you played AOK? They all have their own language, so I wouldn't expect anything less from ES.

in those 4 gamespot movies, I definitely heard authentic russian and french, so I'd assume that languages will be nation specific

Bah.

Masilla, I think you're right

Like this:
"Men kom igen nu grabbar!"
"Ladda bössan allihop!"
"Titta på mig, så fult jag springer!"

Hehe

Please ES, I really hope that portuguese units won't speak english and portuguese, but only portuguese.
Elsewise it would sound stupid

The French could speak with a Quebec accent, that would be cool! At least the coureur unit should.

The Russians have to say "Tovarich" (Comrade), even though it wouldn't make sense historically.

All nations (except Britain) will speak with their current languages. Britain will use Middle English.

I only hope it doesnt sound like in AoK. In that game the Turks sounded very fake. When they charged it sounded like they were going for a walk. And it sounded also too much like modern Turkish. I hope they use more historical languageexpressions of the ottomans like:
- "Devletlüm" or "Hünkarum" (means same as "Sire?"; not exactly but in a Turkish way) rather then "evet" (just "yes?")
- I would prefer "Hücüm" and "Ya Allah" for Charging, or "Allah" repeating it more then twice like "Allah Allah Allah Allah...", just "Allah Allah" sounded too silly
- "Basum üstüne" or "Emrin olur" (=at your orders) rather then the silly sounding "yaparim" (=i will do/make it)
This was a bit turkish lesson from me.

I'm not sure what "Victorian English" is supposed to be exactly... (As opposed to "pre-victorian" english?), but still... I see the idea.

That actually would be cool for all languages: Each language "progresses" with the age up process so that it more closely reflects the changes within the aging cultures.

It would not only be interesting, but also add some relief from the repetitive sounds of the game.

Quoted from Cooker:

Will Units speak their own language (French speak French, Aztec speak Aztec)...?

The lenguage of the Aztecs wasnt the "aztec" just as the Cuba one isnt the "Cubish" or something, for example.

Aztec used the náhuatl leanguage, as well as some other prehispanic cultures in Mesoamerica. Currently there are yet small groups that use that lenguage, as well as spanish.

In other things, its very likely that every civ will have their complete set of sounds,taunts, and maybe a theme, just like in AoK and AoT. Those ones where soo good, and i missed them in Mythology.

That the civs will speak their own language is a given i think (those great guyz at ES.. .

But The only thing i cannot grasp is that only the english will use middle english. I would like to hear the other old languages too. Like the French "Langue d'Oc"(occitaans-dutch word4it), for the Dutch a combination of 'middle-dutch' and 'earlynewdutch' etc.

Most of the civilizations are supposed to speak languages appropriate to the time period. The Middle English is a little before the time period, but it was annoying for us Americans to be able to understand just one of the language spoken.

Of course, it is hard for us to verify that the correct languages or dialects are spoken, and I have heard the feedback about not enough acting in the translations before.

The Native Americans all speak their correct languages. This was no small feat -- even in some Native American communities the traditional language is not widely spoken. We even got Native American actors to record all of the lines, though we couldn't get representatives from every tribe or nation we represent.

Yay! let's hear it for ES

That is indeed quite an efford. Glad for the extra mile. And.., if in need for a dutch speaker... (although the middle-dutch will b very hard, earlynew i can do -i think-, that's fairly close to as it is now).

[EDIT:]
U c.., i'll do anything to try n weasel me in.. ..tryin to get close to the game
