Download it in the correct language and install again and also make sure your system language is actually set to English. Trials/ unserialized versions always use the system language. If you have a serial, verify that the serial is actually an English one...Mylenium

I hope there will be a way of changing language in an installed app in the future. Any plans for that Adobe? I am running creative cloud, and it was supposed to be all english versions, which I wanted. Some of the programs install in Swedish anyway. Why not have an option when you download the program? Native language or English. That would make life easier. I want english versions, but my system language still set to swedish. I have an internet connection that have a limited downlod every month (and it is not high speed either) so this is quite annoying....

On Mac you can use "Language Switcher" http://www.tj-hd.co.uk/en-gb/languageswitcher/ .

I had to use it and it works.

My trial installation was German (because my Mac is localized in Germany). I bought the English version, because I always worked with it and I'm very used to it.

I could switch Photoshop to English in it's preferences, but not Illustrator. So when the trial period expired, Illustrator (German) did not work anymore, though Photoshop CS6 (English) worked (I have the CS6 PP).

After switching Illustrator's language to English, it instantly became the full licensed version I bought.

By system language I guess you mean the language of Windows.  I am using a Japanese computer but want to use Ilustrator in English.  I am not sure what to do?  Doubt I can download another trial version.  Any help you can give me on this would be great as I won't be able to really try out the software in Japanese.

Thanks for the solve!)   BUT, I am noticing that this fix only affects the main menus- all pop-ups and dialog boxes are still in the original language... any fix for that?



Also, do you have any info on changing language of other CS6 apps like Bridge, In Design, Premier , ect.?     would be greatly appreciated!!!
