Does anyone know if this is possible? To be clear I am not talking about display language or input language as there are many posts about this.

Currently my settings are as I want them:

Display language : English
Input language : English (United States) - French
Format : English (United Kingdom)
Location : France

I did a clean install from USB (upgrade from OEM Win 7 Ultimate). My language was reset to French - probably as the original Win 7 machine was bought in France. I have changed the input/display to English but whenever I install software (today GoogleDrive, Dropbox, Lenovo drivers) the language picked up is the system language.

Is it possible to change this?

Hello,
I just bought a new laptop (ASUS K53E). I'm currently in Japan and bought laptop here. I'm stuck at the set up page where I have to choose the region and languages. I would prefer English as main language, but I'm afraid I will have problems later with Japanese keyboard, I use both English and Japanese in daily life. There are two things, language and keyboard, that I can choose the language for. And the physical keyboard is Japanese (qwerty with additional buttons).
Also can I add more languages later on? If I plan to add one more language which keyboard is best for initial set up?

Would be grateful for any tips, its a first time I bought laptop outside of Europe.

Answer:choosing a language for a new laptop English and Japanese

Be sure to make your Recovery Disks and preserve the Recovery partition if you reinstall so that you can revert to the state you received the computer and hopefully make these Setup choices again if needed in the future.

Otherwise languages are only interchangeable when you have Ultimate which provides all of the language packs via optional Windows Updates.

However reinstall with another language is sometimes possible depending upon the region of your license even though the license is language-specific. The choices you have now should also be available by finding an installer for that language to clean reinstall, then activate with the Product Key on COA sticker. However you may have to try it to find out for sure, so be sure to preserve your factory Recovery options and and Win7 backup image of your install after setup.

Hi all,

I have searched all over the net for a solution and can't find one. First, a description of the problem:
The Language Bar is showing up fine. I can use Chinese and alternative English keyboard layouts without any problems. However, I can't use Japanese at all. It is not even shown as an option when I click the button to change languages. Furthermore, keyboard shortcuts don't work.

I got it to show the Japanese option when I "restored" the Language Bar, right clicked it, and turned it vertical, but after turning it back to horizontal, the option disappeared. Desperate to get it back, I turned it back to vertical. It's no longer there either way!

I heard that a Windows Vista Update removed some guy's Japanese language support completely. He fixed it with System Restore. But I'm using Windows XP Pro and there's so many updates I don't know when to restore to and I don't want to restore.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I'm not entirely sure how this happened, and i'm pulling my hair out trying to fix it. Many installation programs are showing up in Japanese, as well as / showing as ¥. I've checked the region and languages settings in the control panel, under the keyboards and languages tab, "Display Language" option doesn't show up. Attachment shows the issue i'm having. Any help would be appreciated, if i need to provide more info, i'll try my best. Thanks.

Answer:Language Issues, japanese showing instead of English

Hey,

Even I am facing the same problem. I bought the parts in japan and assembled it but the OS is in English. While installing drivers the installer was in Japanese. Also my keyboard layout is japanese.

Now the programs which I had in English before are getting installed in Japanese when I am doing the installation. I manually changed the language of some programs but I can't find the option in other as they are all in Japanese. I thought it was taking the location from internet and installed without the internet but they still got installed in Japanese.

How do I stop this? Some help would be really appreciated.

I have a huge Onenote 2013 Onebook that involves hundreds of individual sections. It was developed entirely in English. Some of my colleagues need this notebook in Japanese.
I know how to share the English notebook with them -- and also that Onenote has a translate option -- and that we need the Japanese Language pack for the most effective translation.
My question is -- is it possible to have in ONE Notebook all the information in BOTH English and Japanese? For example, i was thinking about for each notebook section having the top page be English , then using the translate option and inserting the translated text to a new page in the same section. Is this the best way to do this or are there other options? We have in our US office a translator that knows English/Japanese but is unfamiliar with how OneNote works so I'm trying to help her with that side of things.
I'm thinking I could probably just send the English version to my co-workers and they set their OneNote programs to Japanese but I need to make sure that all the translations are accurate before I just trust OneNote to do the translating (hence the translator needs to review OneNotes's translations). This is medical and nutritional data so its critical that the translation is accurate and FDA compliant.
Does anyone have experience with this or could point me where to go to learn more about this?

Till then i had the older version of System update 4.01... after I start it, the application told there is a new version and it must be installed and the program will now close and install the new version of TVSU - 4.03.0007. Well all OK..it was installed started checked and after I closed it. This evening I open it to see what it offers me among the optional updates and...crash! Message: "ThinkVantage system update has stopped working....windows is checking for a solution to the problem" ....and this is non-stop.

Answer:change win 7 ultimate language from japanese to en

If you visit Windows update, you will be greeted with many language packs. Put checkmarks in the checkboxes beside the language packs you wish to install. You can install as many languages as you wish. As I remember correctly, there are about 31 language packs in Windows update. After installation, you can change to the language of your choice. i.e. English, German, French, etc. Language packs are offered to only Ultimate and Professional versions of Win 7. You have Ultimate. CoolGuy

Does anyone know if it is possible to change languages in Vista Home Premium, or if it is possible to download a language. I have a laptop that I bought in Spain, and thought I would be able to change the language to Englaish, but unfortunately this does not seem to be the case.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Answer:How can I change the Vista OS language to English

Hi

Do you want to have whole Windows Vista in English??? Well, what to say? in my knowldge you cannot switch simply the OS language.
It?s only possible to switch the regional and language options for keyboard or for date and time.
But it?s not possible to change the whole writings, menus or titles of OS.

In such case you will need to buy an English version of Vista OS and to install it again!!!

By the way; Vista provides Windows Vista Multilingual User interface function but I didn?t test it and I?m not 100% sure if it will change the language on the Toshiba Vista image.

Hey!We just got a used computer recently..but the language it came in was in Turkish. Obviously, we want to change it to English but don't know exactly know how to with all these weird menus and words. So does anyone know how to do this without getting a new english xp cd? Please help.Thanks in advance!

Answer:Want to change XP language from Turkish to English!...

There is a policy Microsoft has about this issue.If your company is an International Corporation, and if the company has a Corporate License from Microsoft, your company can provide you with a new XP install CD in English.Or a special pack that will convert the present installation. Due to the numerous updates that have taken place, the service pack for the conversion may no longer be usable.Otherwise, as far as I know, the is no quick easy way to convert the entire Windows OS over to another Western language. But you can get applications that work in another language. But, there is a Turkish Microsoft Windows  sold as the Windows XP Pro MultiLingual for $300 and I would think that is NOT what you have and you do not want to shell out that kind of money.Sorry, I am not much help.

Hi,

I've Googled this problem but am getting conflicting views on how to solve this problem. I bought a laptop in Paraguay, with Windows 7 Pro pre-installed. I thought this would be handy and it was cheap as chips so bought it. Little did I know changing the language from Spanish to English would be such a chore. Is there a simple trick I'm missing?

I can get by but it would be so much easier to have it all in English. For instance, I just tried to put my camera's SD card in to the slot and it came up with an error message that I couldn't even read!

Answer:Need to change language from Spanish to English

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Your easiest way round your problem would be a Windows Anytime Upgrade from Windows 7 Professional to Windows 7 Ultimate, which would give you access to 34 language packs via Windows Updates.

http://emea.microsoftstore.com/UK/en...nytime-Upgrade

Obviously, you'll need to choose your region before you make your purchase, but all it involves is buying a new product key, which is then e-mailed to you.

Then it's Start>All Programs>Windows Anytime Upgrade and follow the instructions to enter your new product key.

Wait half-an-hour or so and it's job done.

Hi,
a little candy have just struck me in the eye: it was possible for me to change WinXP OS language to English on my Toshiba.
Check if you have c:\WINDOWS\mui\muisetup.exe. If yes execute it, and you're lucky to uninstall your own national language from windows and dialogs.

Hello!
I just bought Qosmio G30-137 from Germany and it has Windows Xp MCE in German language.
Also the recovery disc is in German too. I would like to know if anyone can provide me the recovery disc in english language or can anyone tell me step by step what I have to do to make a format to install Windows Xp MCE in english version and what programms I will propably need because I am a newbie...

Also the laptop has two HDD with RAID technology.
I look forward to hearing at your earliest convenience.

Answer:Qosmio G30-137: How to change the OS to english language?

Hi

The Windows was delivered in German language because you have purchased it in Germany. You can not change the language to English without to have the English recovery CD or the original English Windows OS version.

You can install the original Windows OS but before you install the new OS you have to install the RAID driver.

Hi everyone!

I just bought an NB100 from a friend but the language is in Arabic. I could use it just fine but I prefer the system language to be in English.

How do I do this without a CD-ROM drive?
Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.


OS: Windows XP

Answer:NB100 - How to change the Win XP language to English

Operating system is country specific product and for each country the notebook will be delivered with specific language.
I really don't know how it works for Arabic countries but if you want to have OS on English language you must buy OS on certain language and make clean OS installation.
As far as I know Windows is not a kind of multilingual OS and for each language you need separate installations CD/DVD.

If possible obtain installations media on English. All drivers, tools and utilities you can download from Toshiba support & Download page.

Recently I bought a Toshiba laptop for a friend.
Pre-installed was English Vista. They wanted Polish.
They then installed Polish Vista over the top of the English one and now the computer just doesn't seem to want to open half of the applications that it should.

Is there anywhere or anyone I can get a recovery CD off or what can I do to sort out the problem, bearing in mind the laptop did not come with a recovery disk or a Windows Vista installation disk.

Any help much appreciated.

Answer:How to change the Vista English to Polish language

The first thing you should do is, when you bought a new notebook, make a recovery disc, as new ones don't come with this included.
Now, installing one Vista over another isn't a good thing, and I even didn't know that this is possible this way.

Anyway, you will have to do a new and clean installation of your operating system, as it is not possible, to change languages or get this fixed.
You could do this by using the polish Vista version and download all needed drivers and utilities, note, that you can't download all programs from Toshiba page.
Second thing would be buy a copy of recovery DVD at your ASP or order it directly here:

https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

But this version will again be only english. To change language in Windows you will need Ultimate or Business version.

Hi all,

I recently purchased a new Dell desktop here in Japan, but as English is my native language I switched the display language to English. Unfortunately, many programs and menu screens have blocky and small fonts, as if there is no anti-aliasing or screen smoothing on.

These are fine:

These are not:

Some programs even have a mix:

I have googled around pretty extensively and the main solutions -- using the advanced system settings to adjust for best appearance, and adjusting ClearType text -- have had no effect. Graphics card drivers are all up to date.

My previous computer was an English-language machine bought with Windows 7 and upgraded to 10, and it had no such problems. The problem machine was bought in Japan as a Japanese-language machine, and I switched the display language to English soon after purchasing. I'm assuming that must have something to do with it but I can't find any definitive answers (maybe it's completely unrelated). The font problem is really grating in a few essential programs I use daily so I would love to find a fix.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

if it is a Windows 7 OS, you can download the English language Win 7 ISO then install that, activate it using the serial no. provided to you on the laptop. Make sure to create a set of product recovery media from Drive Q (Lenovo_Recovery) before you do this. This is the only way to do it, as Lenovo can't provide a different language installation media. (in the old day the recovery media Lenovo ships have every language, but that no longer seems to be the case).

You can set a timezone or profiles but the changing the language is not possible.
You will have to obtain a english Vista or XP because I don?t think they will exchange you the image or refund it.

Answer:os language problem how to change to english and partition drive

Welcome to the forums fleurdelis, 1) If you want to have Windows XP in English, you will need an English installation disk. There is absolutely no way to change the user interface from Finnish to English. There are Multilingual User Interface installation packages to change from English to other languages. 2) If you plan on repartition the hard drive, don't expect to be able to recover to the factory preinstalled state. The backup image is locked to the specific partition size from which it was created. If you modify the partition in any way, you lose the recovery feature.

Then go to control panel, click on regional and language options. Then click on the keyboards and languages tab.
