I have a player who decided to play a droid, and when I was going through the rules to create custom droids, I couldn't find anywhere what automatic languages they have.

The best aproximations to rules I found were in the Communication subsection within the Accesories section (Core Rulebook, page 193).

All droids are capable of emitting the sounds necessary to speak Binary, a language used by droid an computers [...].

Vocabulator: The droid is equipped with a speaker that enables it to emulate speech, rather than simply spout machine code. This device is standard if the droid has ability to speak any language other than binary.

Is a custom PC droid able to speak (or, at least, understand) Basic by default, hence owning vocabulator by default too, or do it needs to pay for it?

Is there any place in the rules where it's described which are the automatic languages for a droid?

Ok, I just found the answer where it was more likely to be. I just can't believe I didn't notice back then.

Core Book, page 188, last paragraph of "Droid Traits" section:

Automatic Languages: Binary plus one language chosen by the designer (usually Basic).

So, if we follow the rules as written, the vocabulator should be standard in a custom droid.
