    Change language settings for BG3

    This is a super strange solution that didn’t work for me, but seemed to work for other Reddit users. Head to the Launcher and click on the settings menu, which should still be there despite being blank. Change the language setting to anything other than the chosen language, then press the Save settings button. After that, go back to the menu, change the language settings to the desired language and press the Save Settings button.
