Sims 4 fun facts: Bella Goth is not called Bella Goth in all languages

Bella Goth is not called Bella Goth in other translations of The Sims. And you thought the mystery of her whereabouts were a lot to get your head around.

If you have played any edition of The Sims, you probably know who Bella Goth is. Well, unless you only played The Sims 2 and you didn’t delve deeper into the mysterious missing person.

But we are not here today to try and solve the great mystery of Bella Goth. One day we might, but not today.

We are simply here to share a fun fact about Bella Goth. The Sims franchise has been translated into over two dozen different languages. In some of those translations, names of the pre-made Sims have been translated, too.

There are many fun facts about The Sims – as you might expect for a game that has been going for over 20 years. But the translation of names of some of the game’s iconic Sims is one of our favs and you best bet we’ll be running a whole series of these.

Fun fact: Kerkhof directly translates to “church yard” from both Dutch and Afrikaans.  Pretty apt, then.
