Does anyone have a script or something that will change the language in all paragraph tags at once?
I don't write scripts. If you have a script could you please explain how to use it.
I am converting 17 manual, 17 different languages in an English InDesign template.
I am working on a PC.
If you are using Paragraph styles, you can edit the styles to make the change.
Otherwise, you can use Find/Change with nothing in the text fields
Find Format - (find the version of english that is being used)
Change Format - (Choose the language you want to change to)

Thank you very much, that worked great.
This works great but I'd like a version which just chages to a pecific language, so that I can create a shortcut and quickly apply it.
I would like to be able to change it to hit all open documents too if anyone has advice.
since language is a character property also check the available character styles.
And of course overrides.
FWIW: Sometimes it's best to have a character style in place for e.g. US English, even if the document is typeset with a different language. You will use this character style on e.g. a quote in English.
