FM2015 Real Names and German National Team Fix File v2.0 for FM15.3.0 [25/02/2015]
This file will need to be re-applied if/when patches/updates are released to ensure full compatibility. This is due to the fact that some files which are removed when installing this file are automatically re-installed by Steam when official patches come out.

The sortitoutsi real names fix changes the instances of fake names in Football Manager 15 to the proper, real life names for awards, cities, stadiums and competitions, in cases where the actual name is not licensed. It will also fix the fact that the German National team doesn't call up real players. These are fully save-game compatible.

There is also a club name changes file, which changes the names of clubs in a way which ensures that any nicknames entered in the default database are retained. This file includes the proper names for German, Italian and French clubs to circumvent licensing restrictions. It also adds real-life media and journalists, with 26 media files added to encompass all major footballing nations and continents. Finally, it includes a small file which corrects the 3-Letter competition names to correspond with any changes made in the lnc files. For all these files to work, however, you will need to start a new game.

Magrippinho very helpfully created a YouTube video on how this file should be installed. Some of the contents are different - but the procedure is identical, although of course you use the equivalent folder for FM15.

Or, you can follow the below instructions to install v2.0 of this file (if you are installing a previous version please use the 1500 folder instead of the 1530 folder:

Step 1: Go to

PC
 Program Files \ Steam \ SteamApps \ common \ football manager 2015 \ data \ db \ 1530 
Mac
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2015 / data / db / 1530 
You can find this folder by clicking, in the Finder, the Go menu in the menu bar, then choose Go to Folder and type the folder path name (obviously inserting your username), then click Go.

Slightly more detail in this post

Linux
/home/user/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Football Manager 2015/data/db/1530/

Please note that the Local folder is hidden. Press (ctrl + h)
Android:
sdcard\Android\data\sportsinteractive.fm15\files\installed\data\db\1530
For Mac Lion users, the Library folder will be hidden. Use this link to find out how to show it.

Step 2: Delete the edt and lnc folders from the folder above

Step 3: Copy the edt and lnc folder from this download into the folder mentioned in step 1.

Step 4: Go to:

Documents \ Sports Interactive \ Football Manager 2015
Step 5: Open the folder named "editor data" contained therein. If it does not exist, then create it.

Step 6: Keeping the folder in step 5 open, go back to the file you downloaded and select the folder named "FM15 Real Names Fix Files from sortitoutsi.net v2.0".

Step 7: Paste the circled folder directly into the folder mentioned in step 5.

Step 8: This should be what your editor data folder looks like. There may also be a config.xml file in this folder and can be safely retained; it is generated by FM every time the game starts.

To make sure the files have been applied correctly, go to the Champions Cup and EURO Vase in your saved game, and they should be renamed to Champions League and Europa League respectively. If you are in the middle of a save-game, German national teams will be populated in the next instance that players are called up, and not instantly. Club names (including the German ones) are only changed if you apply the editor data files before starting a new game. For a workaround if you've already started a new save-game, then please read the opening post of this thread.

Some of these changes may not apply in FMC...

I seem t be having the same problem as the Dr. all my files seem to be in the right place but the German national team is still not updating, english premier league name not changing, and EURO cup/champ is not changing to UEFA.
all the other files in the editor data are the league downloads and data updates. I have reinstalled this file after i downloaded an up-to-date data fix from here. I have pics of the 1500 file under steamapps and the edt and lnc folders. any fix?

I can think of one reason why the editor data files might not be working, and that's simply because you have too many of them. iirc the limit for editor data files is something like 78 or so. Remove some of the editor data files, such as some of the more far-flung league files, and you'll be fine on that front.

However, it looks like the lnc files, which regulate the competition name changes, are placed correctly, and I cannot explain what's wrong there. Can I have an in-game screenshot for the English Premier League and the Champions League/Europa League?
So i just started a new game to get the pics. still showing no change. I can start a new one so the europa league is filled. in this game i started in Jan so it is not filled.

also i cleared some editor data files down to 70. probably will wittle more down
when will there be an update to the new patch avalible
Does it work for v15.3.0?
I understand that there has not been much time since the v15.3.0 update has come out but a few of the changes don't work. Is there anything that I could have done wrong? If not will there be a patch or update so that the licences will work in line with the new update? Thanks
Needs updating it seems
does not work with the new update - 15.3
you must put the files inc and edt to Program Files \ Steam \ SteamApps \ common \ football manager 2015 \ data \ db \ 1530
The 1530 is the new file who created after update
It works if u do what lionardo says!
thanks for the quick update and the god work
The file is now available for download

Installation instructions are included but:

a) You can safely use the lnc folder from this download in your 1500 folder - the changes will take effect in your save game

b) Remember that you need to change the 1530 > edt and lnc folders only - don't touch the dbc folder

c) Remember to delete the previous version of this file from your editor data folder as this may cause conflicts. To clarfiy, you should only have v2.0 in your editor data folder.

Enjoy
cheers for the latest update this game needs a good few days of non stop playing now
Big thanks Mons
so quick
Brilliant work Mons!

Mons what are the changes between this and previous version?i run a save with latest update and the previous real name fix version.
There's a number of club, competition, award and stadium name updates as well as changes to all media files, some of which had considerable changes and some minor.
is with save game full compatible?
Can I clarify something mons?

Should I be updating both the 1500 folder for existing saves, and the 1530 for new games?
is with save game full compatible?

Not 100%. The new media files and club name changes will need a new game to be started to take effect, but the remaining fixes are save-game compatible, yes.

Basically, yes, but trying to explain that would surely confuse the hell out of most people. So go ahead and do so

German national team fix doesnt work for me
i did everything according to the instructions, and the german national team dont apper in a new game... (version fm15.3) file v 2.0
what is the problem?
mons do you know if the Japan database will work with this update?

«This comment has been edited»
Selector and elran767, make sure that the lnc folder contains only the 3 files from this download and that the all and Greek folders have been deleted.

Persee, I haven't checked it but I doubt it.
Mons I just tried without the edt/lnc files, just with the DB files and it works, all players are there, all teams have the right names. It seems to be working

Good to hear. It should theoretically work with the lnc files as well. Perhaps 15.3 includes a fix for the bug which did not allow the concurrent use of the Japanese league file and this download
