Hi,

Is there a quick way to switch the interface display language? I want to change from local language to English temporarily, but it is not fixed to display English. I still need to display the local language most of the time. If I reinstall the software, English will be fixed. Is there a change-over switch like other software?

There is no simple switch over (and also: this switch doesn't exist in all other software)

 

You have two options: If you need to run Illustrator in a different language than your system, you can only install that one language you want to run Illustrator in.

 

If you need to change Illustrator into a different language from time to time, then what you can do is: install different languages of Illustrator. And whenever you need to change the language, you have to change the system language to the

I whish it was as easy as Photoshop where you just select the language in the preferences > interface.

With Illustrator you need to set the CC ap to a different language, install the app. Don't forget to reset the language in the CC app otherwise all your apps want to be installed in that language.

If you are on a Mac, you just set the System Preferences > Language to a preferred  language you have installed. Close the System preferences. If asked to restart, just click Don't Restart, Illustrator will start up in the selected language.

No. Does this answer your question?
