Can we change the language of the game on PS4?

I am French and thus playing on the French version of the game but I'd like to play on the English one because the French localization isn't so great, is there any way or any plan to do so in the future?

    Is there not a console option?
    Not within the game but to change the language on the entire console so it changes the game?

    On Xbox one that's the only way I'm aware of but there are also limitations soon to be changed.

    Ok apparently the only way on ps4 is to change the whole system to english, the reason it didnt work in italian for me, its because they only have english, french and german :(.

    Yes, I can change the language of the entire console but I'd rather not. :/ I was more likely looking for an in game option, but I might eventually do what you suggested because I can't stand going through like 10 misspellings and other localization issues every 20 to 60 min of my play time. ^^'

    I tried to report them in game but I was told by the support to go to the forums and on the French forums, well, it's like a no man's land... Some issues have been reported since last year and none have been addressed as of now. I assume there is less misspellings and such on the "original" version of the game?

    Hm if the version you buy in Italy isn't Italian then I don't think they have language packs for every game. They should at least have most languages for the text, but if you can't change it then it must be encoded in the disc/digital content
    "Did Ahmed not deserve a life?
    Ahmed never hurt a fly
    Ahmed never knew the politicians he was murdered by
    Certain times Ahmed wished that he could be a bird and fly
    Beyond the sky
    Escape the curse of birth that he was burdened by
    Ahmed never grew to let your racism internalise
    Water poured from every pore in his corpse while the nurses cried
    Ahmed was a beautiful person like you or I
    But are we?..
    Ahmed could have been a doctor, lawyer or an engineer
    Could have been a superstar but his life ended here
    Guess he was a shooting star burned bright and disappeared
    To some he seems to represent a menace in this hemisphere
    Let me here make the very essence of this message clear
    He was precious, many die like him every year
    Ahmed was a victim of resentment and relentless fear
    Now his soul surfs the waves I wish we could have kept him here"

    Thanks the help! Well that's not ideal but it's better than nothing I guess. xD

    On FFXIV I can change the language of the game without having to change anything in my console settings, I hope ZOS will make this option available in the future. It doesn't bother me to play in English but I'd feel more comfortable with my console interface being in French when I'm not playing ESO. :)

    The French localization is not that bad but I just don't want to spend like 1/4 of my play time giving feedback if no changes are made in game for months or even years, most of the time that's just texts to ajust... I'm not even sure where to post them on the French forums to be heard, because some did report those localization issues a while back in August 2014 and since the console release, it seems like no one is checking on us anymore, except for the moderation comments.
