I'm learning French, so I figured I'd change the Steam UI to French and hopefully learn a bit more. Unfortunately this made Steam download the language packs for some games, so I changed back to English. Now Steam is stuck updating Skyrim and Morrowind to French, and I can't stop them. I can pause them, but I need to wait for the download to finish to play. I'm on capped internet and I really, really can't afford to download another ten gigs of data this month. So how can I stop these updates?
See if you can stop downloading by setting game languages one-by-one. I'm not sure, but it might worth a try.
- Log into your Steam account
- Right click on a game from the Steam game library and choose Properties.
- Go to the Language tab
- Select the language you wish to use from the drop-down menu
- Click OK
- If the game supports the language you have selected, files for that language may need to be downloaded before you can play.
