Photoshop got installed in French, but I need it in English.  How do I proceed.  I used AAM to do this with CS6, but cannot find the way to select the language and download again.  Do I need to uninstall first?

Actually no.  I modified the language in Creative Cloud options and closed it.  After re-opening, It did allow me to download again.  It retained both the initial (English) and the new language (French).

Cgrmz it will depend on your operating system.  Windows users have reported the need to remove and reinstall the application for the langauge to switch.

Macintosh users have mostly reported the same behavior Jacques posted with the language changing without the need to reinstall.

Hi Jeff, this is very important for me!

Can you confirm that on Mac it's possible to change a languages without a new complete install of the software?

I modified the language in Creative Cloud options and closed it.  After re-opening, It did allow me to download again.

Download again what? Sorry, i do not understand -  you have to download again the all software or only the new language pack?

It retained both the initial (English) and the new language (French).

This is interesting. So now you have photoshop in 2 languages and you can switch in real time using ui-language preference? Confirm?

Last: Jeff this solution can be used also for Illustrator CC or InDesign CC?

In other words: i need all 3 software in 2 languages (English international and French).

It could be a great feature of CC! Please let me know if possible!

Many thanks!

Hi Jeff, i see the link but uninstall them and reinstall is a always big problem.

Are there other solutions to use to do this? I use Mac (no pc)!

To change the user interface language of currently installed applications, uninstall them and reinstall using the Adobe Application Manager.

Yes now I have the 2 languages. I had installed French initially, and

then I changed the language in Creative Cloud-Preferences-App, and

downloaded PS again. It reinstalled and added the second language.

To switch, in PS, you select Preferences-Interdace and select the

language for the UI in the Text section.

You can see the languages files in Programs/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop

xxx/Locales. If the reinstall does not leave the 2 languages, you could

first save aside the current language file and move back afterwards.

It should allow you to switch languages since you are using Mac OS.  On Windows the reports are that to adjust the UI language you need to remove and reinstall in that language.

In my case I wanted to change After Effects from Italian to English without having to uninstall and install again. Here's a quickfix:

- go to: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CC\Support Files\AMTLanguages

- find file it_IT and rename it to en_EN

that's it. now After Effects loads in English.

It's not so easy with PS and AI. If soemone can tell me how to change it for those two I would appreciate it.

bye tnx

No ThorP if you wish to change the language for your already installed applications you will need to remove the current installation and reinstall with the new language.
