Q: Change Language form english to german

Heya Guys

How are you doing? We are setting up a Vista Business Client for our Company. It is a test-station. We bought (deliberately) the operating system in english. Now my question:

I can't find files or patches to change the language in the Internet Explorer 7 from english to german... is ist possible to change the language at all?

Thanks for your help!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

If IE7 is like IE6, the answer is you cannot, just for this one application.

The only language related options is via:

Control Panel, Regional and Language Options icon

And you have to download the optional languages you want supported.

Hi
I bought the german version of the Libretto w100 (10D) to get a 3G-sim slot. Despite what the seller told me, it is not possible to switch from german to english interface. I have since bought an upgrade (Windows Anytime) from Win7 Home to Win 7 Ultimate, to get additional language support. I now got english in (most) system menues, but the Toshiba specific applications still use german, even though I have removed/reinstalled and choosen english language during the installation process. Any suggestions on how to solve this?

And no, I don't understand german language...

A:Libretto W100 - Switching language from German to English

This being the european forum, I doubt you will find the answer here. Any drivers you download from here will probably be in german, since it automatically recognizes that you are in Germany.

Go to the american support forum:
http://forums.toshiba.com/t5/Laptops/ct-p/c_laptops

Libretto is at the bottom of the page, ask if someone can download the english drivers and share them over megaupload or something.

Hope this helps.

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me if the German editions of Smart Security, NOD32 and Multi-Device Security include English language options? or if the licence keys will activate installations (within the EU) using an English language installer?

Thanks
 

A:ESET 2015 German editions English language option?

I've tried on my VM to install one of the offline installer of ESET on other languages.

So specifically you need to choose an appropriate language before you install cause there's no already an option to change unless use Live Installer.

http://kb.eset.com/esetkb/index?page=content&id=SOLN3552

License key will work at any multi language part of ESET, so if you purchase it on EU then it should be valid since its a language you are choosing though,

For some reason, when I right click on anywhere in Windows Explorer, the selections are all in German. Also, most pop up warnings are in German as well. Though some of it is in Enlish (All of File, Edit, View, etc.), most of windows explorer is German. Help would be appreciated.

HI everybody

Please help me - I'm trying to find out how to change the whole of my windows XP OS from English to German language (this includes all menus etc).

I was told by somebody that is apparently easy to do if you go though control panel - I would have thought some sort of German Media kit would be needed and some form of Upgrade licensing for German XP????

I am confused and I really have to resolve this issue ASAP.

This info may also be helpful:
The laptop is a corporate HP laptop which has been licensed under the Select A agreement with Microsoft.

What do I have to do? Is it really simple or am I over-complicating things?

Thanks in advance for all your help.

Best regards

A:PLEASE HELP! URGENT!!! Windows XP - how can I change it to the German language?

To change the default language:

Click Details, then Add.
Under Input Language, add the language you want.
Under Keyboard Layout/IME, click the keyboard layout you want to use.

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?

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!

I don't have the Windows 7 installation disks...

Thanks in advance.

A: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

As far as I know the Win 7 Home Premium was preinstalled on this notebook.
The OS language cannot be changed in Home Premium version.
Only the Enterprise and Ultimate editions support the Multilanguage pack.

So wither you would install a English version of the Win 7 Home Edition on your W100 or you would upgrade the Home Premium to Enterprise or Ultimate version and then you would install the English language pack

which is an LIP.

Then go to control panel, click on regional and language options. Then click on the keyboards and languages tab. On that there should be a list of display languages that you can install or something saying install display language. Choose English and install it. Then choose English on the Display Language menu. Hit ok and restart if necessary.

I was doing a crossword puzzle online and all of the sudden a couple of windows flashed across the screen and the language changed from all English to a mixed English and Arabic (I believe). The menu bar at top of screen is gone too. HELP!
 

A:Language on my computer changed from English to English and (I believe) Arabic

Press the Windows flag key + R and in the Run open field type: intl.cpl (press enter)
Check that the drop down box under “Format: English” is set to “Match Windows Display language (recommended)"

I would be a little leery that something malicious may have been installed on the computer to cause this unwanted change. You may want to update and run any AV and or anti-malware programs you may have installed.

I will be upfront, I do not know the answer to your question, but there are others here who might. My advice is to call MS, they would have the definitive answer. In addition, they have the authority to give you little extras for little or no cost. Give them a call. With the economy in shambles, major compaines need good will.

My mate has got a new netbook but has put German as the default language not english before the pc computeruser name and password.

I have been told that it cannot be altered we have to set it up in German leave the password blank then alter in the normal way but it will be all in German so might be a bit tricky.

Can it be altered before we progress any further or do we have to carry on and change it later if so what would be the quickest way to change the language.

Hello.

Not too long ago, I re-installed my ethernet driver, due to it constantly disconnecting me from my network. The installer for the driver used the InstallShield installer, and the program's language was German. Subsequently, after using this installer, every other InstallShield installer is in German, and sometimes, the programs that they install are too.

My default OS language is English [UK], and the system locale for non-Unicode programs is also English [UK].

Is there solution that I can apply to ensure that every program I install in the future is in English? As, the only solution I have found so far, is to edit the parameters for each installer, in order to force it to install in English.


Thank you for your help.

For some reason, and I've absolutely no idea why, but I just launched an InstallShield Wizard for the 'Nexus Mod Manager', and now it gives me the option to edit the language and set it to English, which has also allowed for my previously German InstallShield Wizard, to display in English.

However I still need a German language pack for Windows 7; everything points to anytime upgrade but this isn't available anymore?

Could buy window 8.1 for lots of money and might not run that well on my old 32 bit 3.5gb 2.0mhz laptop which isn't that fast anyway.

Any ideas please? Happy to pay for upgrades but don't need a whole new version of windows

Hi KiwiinSwiss, welcome to the Seven Forums.

A bit long rant but I am not able to put this short so here we go. First the rant, thereafter my suggestions .

I am a multilingual Windows user, typing (and needing respective input language) in my two mother tongues Finnish and Swedish, the language of my country of residence Germany, English and occasional French. That being said I really do not understand the need for two physical keyboards on one computer.

It does not take long practice to learn that although the physical keyboard layout I have is German (QWERTZ instead of QWERTY), when I have switched to Finnish or Swedish input language (identical keyboard layouts) the physical key ?? gives me ?? and the key ? gives me +, or that although the keyboard shows that @ is typed with AltGR + Q I in fact need to press AltGR + 2. Also the time and effort needed to change the input language is nothing compared to time and effort needed to put one keyboard aside to make room for another keyboard; I need two mouse clicks for that, first to open language menu (icon in notification area) and second to select the input language needed.

Screenshot of my language menu. Screenshot is from Windows 8.1, I have taskbar vertical at left so it might look a bit odd:
I understand from your post and a bit suggestive username you have selected that your mother tongue is English and that your second language is German, one of the four official languages of Switzerland, the country where you currently reside. The part I did not completely understand is why you had to get OpenOffice in German? Using again myself as an example, my Windows and all software including Microsoft Office are in English but I can still type letters in Word using German or Swedish or compose emails in Finnish in Outlook. I have of course separate user accounts in English, Finnish, German and Swedish because I had a work where it was essential that I could either make screenshots showing Windows controls and dialogs in respective language or demonstrate them in big screen, but as I do not work anymore I have noticed it can take weeks for me not to log in to other user accounts than the main English one. What I am saying is that you don't need a German word processor or German keyboard to type in German.

The above does not mean that I am happy about how Microsoft and other software makers and online services treat us ex-pats, users who use Windows, other software and online services with a language other than the language(s) of their country of residence. Read about my thoughts at our sister forums: Microsoft Windows 9 Team: Please understand some of us live abroad!.

Conclusion:

If your goal is to be able to type using several input languages, you do not need to change anything, nor do you need two keyboards. Install and enable all input languages you need to, then swap between them with two fast mouse clicks in under a second. Tutorials:Keyboard Input Language - Add or Remove
Keyboard Layout - Change
Language Bar - Hide or Show

Suggestions:

Step 1 in this tutorial shows you how to get original Windows 7 Ultimate ISO install file. If you continue using Windows 7 and want to get multiple display languages, you need to get the Ultimate edition. Search Amazon and eBay for a 7 Ultimate product key but be careful, there are a lot of "if it sounds too good to be true it's probably not" offers out there.

When you have the Windows 7 Ultimate product key, you should be able to do an Anytime Upgrade with it. If not, you can use the Windows 7 Ultimate ISO to create an install media and do a clean install.

Here is what I have found. Both of these websites claim to either have the LIP or an easy way to convert without VISTA Ultimum. Can someone verify for me that these sites are valid and it will not place a virus on my system.

LIP is trustable, but they don't have an English LIP, which is ******** in my opinion.

That's quite possible.  Some websites automatically detect your language settings and adapt to suit.  Where is your VPN terminating?  Does the same thing happen when you visit the site without activating the VPN?

Hi,
 
My new computer was given to me with Windows 7 Professional German version installed. I just want to overwrite it with my English Home Premium edition but do I need to format the drive first or remove the existing version? When I try to install it says the drive doesn't have enough space (because of the existing OS).

A:Help installing English version over German version

Two thoughts. The first is why don't you just try changing the language settings on your existing installation ?  As I remember, if you use a Windows repair disc the first thing you are asked is to choose your language and keyboard. You can get full instructions on how to create a Windows repair disc here :
 
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/create-a-windows-system-repair-disc/
 
No guarrantees it will work, but if it does it saves you a lot of work !
 
I have Win 7 Home Premium and the complete Windows folder is 27 Gb. This is quite a lot, but I am surprised that you are being told you don't have room to install it. I would expect any new laptop to have at least a 250 GB hard drive. But if you are determined to put Win 7 HP on your laptop, I think you are going to have to remove the Pro version first. Just back up any data you have on the computer before you start !

Hi there

I bought a new Laptop here in Germany which comes, as you would expect, with a German version of Windows. I would prefer an English version though. It appears I'd have to update to Win Ultimate or Enterprise to be able to change the language which is quite expensive. However, I don't need the ability to change languages, I just want English.

So, I still have an unused English Win 7 license. Is there any way to convert my system from German to English using that license and keeping all the software that is already installed on my Computer?

Any advice will be much appreciated. Thanks!

A:Possible to install English version over German version of Win 7?

You can call MS Customer Service to find this out for sure.

I think I'd shrink C in Disk Mgmt to install to a test partition to see if English will activate with your Product Key, as this can vary. If so then we can help you remove the old OS or hide it if ever needed again.
Partition or Volume - Shrink
Partition or Volume - Extend

Put your wireless adapter on a stick so you can get online to try activating. If not just delete the test partition in Disk Mgmt and extend C back over it.

Remember you can only have 4 Primary partitions or three Primary and unlimited Logical. If in doubt post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

Since upgrading to Windows 8.1 my keyboard is no longer set to English (United Kingdom) - so I keep getting US keyboard settings for various characters like @ when typing ! In Windows 8 I could change the settings easily in Control Panel >Clock, Language, Region. But now when I go to Control Panel> Language it seems that English (United Kingdom) is only available as a download. I tried to download and install the update but although it downloaded OK it was taking so long to install that I cancelled the operation in desperation !

A:English (United Kingdom) language

since upgrading to Windows 8.1 I've had a number of problems, some I've been able to sort.

But I am having trouble getting the English(United Kingdom) version keyboard. In the Language section of the Control Panel it is shown as my preferred setting, but if I roll mouse over it then says it's 'available' to download. Tried that, downloaded OK but wouldn't install ('hung' for over 30 minutes doing nothing before I gave up and cancelled !). Didn't have this problem with Windows 8 (or any previous versions of Windows either). As far as I am aware all previous versions have had both US and UK versions installed requiring only the user to make a simple switch with just a couple of clicks !

Failing to repair my old Dell, I bought a Lenova laptop with XP Professional here in China. Unfortunately, the only guaranteed method for getting Windows in English is to buy an original CD, which is 1,900 RMB (187 GBP). That's far too expensive for me. However a friend says he may be able to install Windows 7 Ultimate, to which a language packed can be added that allows the language to be English.

But he hasn't tried it before and isn't sure it will work. Does anyone know about this?
 

A:English-Language Windows in China?

Windows 7 costs just as much as WinXP, and you would also need a license key.

There are other operating systems that are "free", such as Linux, which may be a better option if you are looking to save money.

Hello,

I was uninstalling some non-Microsoft products. When I restarted the computer the English Language seems to have been deleted as well. So for every English text such as shortcuts, start menu and explore - they are symbols.

Try this....

Go Start > Control Panel > Classic View > Regional Settings and Language > you should be able to alter the language to English [Australia: UK: US etc.].

Once you have completed the adjustments, you might have to reboot the computer for them to take effect.

Give this a try and post back with the results.

Hi and welcome to TSF

You can only change some bits of XP into English via the Regional and Language options control panel.

If you want everything in English, then you must buy an English version of Windows XP, you cannot change Polish version into English as there are no English components included.

Hi, I need to know one thing. I have been trying to remove US English language from Windows 7, but I am unable to do so. When I use this path, Region and Language / Keyboards and Languages, and then tap on Install / uninstall languages, there's no option to select and remove US English.
I have removed it from the Text services and Input languages settings, but it keeps appearing on the language bar, which is at very least irritating
Is there any way I can permanently remove the US English language from the OS? I would very much appreciate a response in this matter.

Have a look at the attached screen-shot, if it's of any help!

A:How to permanently remove US English language from Win 7?

It might be because Microsoft is a US company and the de facto language of Windows is US English.

Not that that solves your problem, but that might be an explanation as to why you can't get rid of it.

then when you are in word you use either alt - shift or ctrl shift to flip between the 2 languages....(there should then be a little icon in your system tray that shows [EN]....for english and in my case when i flip [GR] for greek...

Hello Everyone,
As I travel to the north on regular occasions, I bought a Lenovo G585 laptop in Spain, where I live. It had W.7.Home Premium installed in Spanish.
I have now upgraded it with the free installation of W.10.
As with all things downloaded in Spain, there is rarely a choice to obtain the download in English.
After the download I found a way to change the language into English.
That done, the keyboard no longer responded correctly!
I am also not able to use the search facility Cortana as it is unavailable in Spain.
Is there any way that I can have the W10 OS language in English AND make the keyboard respond to its designed (Spanish) keys?

(I am writing this on my desktop which has W7 Ultimate in English installed!)

Thanks in advance for any advice,

A:Problem with setting English language

Yes you can and it is the same as in 7 if I remember correctly.

Search for Language in Control Panel. Click on Options in the English Language.



On Input Method click on Add Input Method and scroll down the list until you find Spanish. Then remove English.



This only affects your keyboard - no other regional or language settings are affected.

For Cortana to work you need your language, region and speech have to be the same - it doesn't care about the keyboard. If your language is US English you'll need to make sure you set your region to US as well. As region affects things like search results and news I leave mine where I am and don't use Cortana but it is up to you - I've just not found a use for it yet.

This is a new problem when I type in Spanish. I do not think I had this issue before. When I type words in Spanish such as "mejor" which means better, it is automatically changed to "major" which of course means something entirely different. This happens with many words, another example is "haciendo" (which is a tense of the verb to be); it is changed to "hacienda" which is something like a type of house and so on. Most of the words are underlined in red. I already tried adding the language bar for Spanish, but all that does is change the keyboard as well as the names of the folders from English to Spanish, which is not what I want. I want to write properly in English without going back to check word by word. Can anyone help???Thanks, Ana

A:Language Issues (Spanish/English)

Hi Ana, welcome to the Seven Forums.

The issue you describe is not a Windows issue. It simply means that your word processor is using English spell check. Your examples confirm it; mejor is not English where as major is, and again haciendo is not English but hacienda is, so in both cases the spell check "thinks" you have made a typo and auto-corrects it.

Not knowing which word processor you are using, please consult the manual and / or help files of the word processor to find out how to turn Spanish spell check and dictionary on.

This Microsoft page tells you how to change proof reading language on Word: http://office.microsoft.com/en-001/w...010354272.aspx

If this happens when typing on browser, for instance on web email client composing messages, consult the help files of that browser to find out how to add Spanish spell check and dictionary.

A:Symbols showing instead of English language

Try restoring a backup the program might have made before "fixing" your computer.

You should definitely avoid Registry Cleaners, Boosters, Optimizers, TuneUp Utilities... This type of software will do a lot more harm than good. Most members coming here with WEIRD symptoms had their computer messed up by malware and/or registry cleaners. There have been reports from members saying registry cleaners had fixed a specific problem with their computer. Although it might be possible in some cases, legitimate files still in use will be deleted in the process, crippling some programs and Windows applications beyond repair.

Keep in mind that they will always find "errors" to fix, even on a fresh Windows install! In itself, this should be enough to convince non-believers...
