Hello hopefully someone can help. The operating/ display language for Acrobat is German (and this is maybe because our head office in Switzerland speak German), is there anyway I can change this language to English please. I checked in the settings and found "sprache" meaning language but there is no Englsih option to change it to, as suggested in another post I read. Any ideas would be welcome please.

Is Acrobat the only application that is shown with the German presentation?  It may be your operating system that needs localization.  Also, any PDF can have a base language associated with it.

Try going to Preferences>Language and ensure your prefs are set to English:

Not sure about the wording in German, but above is the way the prefs look in an English installation.

Good luck,
