Quote from the articel "It was created by The Sims creator Will Wright, who is believed to have explored different languages including Tagalog from the Philippines and Ukrainian, among others, when creating Simlish. Wright ultimately decided he wanted a language that could be understood globally but also left a lot to the player's imagination, allowing for more creative and individualistic experiences. Eventually he found two voice actors, Stephen Kearin and Gerri Lawlor, who improvised the sounds and emotions that set the foundation for Simlish as heard today."
