How do I change the language of the German version of Fallout 3 to English?

I have Fallout 3 GOTY on Steam and it’s in German. Low-violence version doesn’t bother me, but the fact that I can’t change the game’s language to English.

I want to play the game as it was intended to be and not with the poor German replacements of word jokes, etc. So does anybody know how to change the language to English? This could be through an English language patch or mod, or the English game files.

  • How do I repair my weapons and armor?
  • Is it possible to do The Pitt without a slave outfit?
  • Ramifications of mass slaughter?
  • Both Fallout 3: Game of the Year and Fallout: New Vegas crash when I try to create a new game
  • What is the shop glitch in Fallout 3 / New Vegas?
  • Skyrim, Fallout 3 and New Vegas: major mouse issues
  • EDIT: There is no option in Steam to change the language.

    EDIT 2: I have already tried all “legitimate” options, the only possible way would be to replace game files or apply a language patch

    EDIT 3: Steam provides me only with the german low-violence gamefiles.

    You can download the language files here. A guide on how to apply these files is contained in the download.

    The only way I know of to change languages in fallout 3 would be a language MOD. It is worth mentioning that I was able to pick up fallout 3 GOTY edition here in Australia for a dollar. It saved to my games for windows live account, not steam, but I can re-download the game from the GFWL client despite originally purchasing a disc copy.

    If you are able to get a deal like mine, it might be worth simply buying a English CD key and enjoying the native English version with all its violent splendour.
