Hello:

Does anyone know if there's a way to change the default language of After Effects without uninstalling and reinstalling? I've found tons of articles on how to do it with older versions, but none of them are current.

Thank you.

Hello:

Thank you. I tried that, but unfortunately that only affects MacOS/Finder, but not After Effects. I just re-installed after all. I tried searching everywhere for a different solution, but it seems that there's no way to change the language in CC like you used to be able to in CS. Oh well. Re-installing wasn't that bad. I was just trying to avoid the hassle, but it worked out okay.

Thank you for your help.

Hello,

If you are a Windows user and want to switch any languages to English, you create an empty text file and save it named ae_force_english.txt into My Docuument folder.

If you are a Mac user, you switch the language in System preferences -> Language & Region.

Thank you. I'm on a Mac, and my After Effects is in English already. I'm trying to temporarily change it to either Italian or German.

Hello,

You just change the order of the language to set it. You move Italian or German up to the top.

Indeed. The only way to change the language of an CC app (that is already installed on your computer) is by reinstalling it:
» Change the language setting of your Creative Cloud apps

ToolfarmJP's trick only works for 'Creative Suite' apps.


Best Regards, Maurice
