How do I change the language the game runs in?
By default, the game will run in the same language as your OS. However, if you wish to play in a different language, you can change it using the Tropico 3: Gold Edition pre-game Options window.
To do this, follow the steps below:
Double-click on the Tropico 3: Gold Edition Application icon. The Tropico 3: Gold Edition pre-game Options window will appear.
Select the Advanced tab.
Select your preferred language from the Language drop-down menu. The available languages are Deutsch, English, Español, Français, Italiano, Русский (Text only) and 日本語 (Text only).
Click the Play button. A dialog box will appear to inform you that the application has to be relaunched. Click the Relaunch button.
When the Tropico 3: Gold Edition pre-game Options window appears again, click the Play button to launch the game.
