You can, but it depends on game. Many PC games has incompatible language files with Switch version. LA Noire for example. LA Noire for this day I couldn't figure out, because scripts for making blobs doesn't work with uncompressed files from Switch version (PC has compressed files).

If you know that your game on other platforms has Hungarian, but not on Switch, you can try to check romfs for hungarian files and replace them with English files or disassemble exefs and try to replace instructions to take Hungarian instead of English.

Hey masagrator, is it possible to use language files form PC version of Divinity Original Sin 2 DE to Switch one?
Because I want to do this, but I'm noob, really...

Thank you .
And what about the Xbox 360 / Ps3 language files? I think maybe the text files are in the "strings" folders. Should I copy the folder where Switch installs the games? ( f.ex : Nintendo folder - Content folder - Registered folder etc.)
