Trouble with language settings. STUCK!

Q: Trouble with language settings. STUCK!

Sigh...very frustrating..

I have a dual language set-up going on my laptop of English as the primary and Korean as an option. For some reason, my computer shut down on its own for whatever reason, then upon start-up and log-in, the language settings were automatically changed to Korean. Unfortunately, I'm not fluent in it, so I don't know how to go about changing it back to English.
On a side-note, after this happened, there was an indication of an update on my Shut Down button, which I clicked and updated. During the update installation process, on the bottom of the screen was the usual Windows 7 logo, but had a Red-Orange "K" after it. Dunno what that was (gonna take a wild guess and say "Korean"?), but it went away..

Anyway, main problem is the language setting, which, for the record, happens often with Windows, in my experience. Anyone able to assist?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Trouble with language settings. STUCK!

Scratch that. I got it. Went to the Start Menu, searched "Regional and Language Settings" and hit Enter so I wouldn't have to navigate aimlessly and changed it back. Dunno why the f*** it was changed in the first place though..!

My friend's laptop came from Puerto Rico and it's in spanish. I've tried changing the language to english in control panel but I haven't had any luck. Is there any way around this or do I have to reinstall windows.

A:Need help with language settings

If it actually came from PR and everything is in Spanish, then that is a Spanish distro of XP and you'll have to reformat and install an English version. I had to do the same thing when moving to the U.S. since I'm from Germany.

Okay I have lumps all over my head after banging my head on the wall trying to change the language and key board settings?
Spelling on my Asus laptop is by default set to US. I have tried to change that to either Australian or UK but when I do the key board gets messed up eg hit the shift key when looking for @ I will get " or hit the capital locks key I will get 2
So where am I going wrong.? I always create a restore point before changing anything luckily.

 It sounds like your version of Windows doesn't support what you're trying to do.  However since you didn't say what version you have, I have to tell you that my dog broke my crystal ball.    Please download and run Speccy.  After running it click File -> Publish snapshot...

how do i change the language of my computer from spanish to english

A:language settings

If your install CD was Spanish I'm afraid you can only change the language by buying an English XP CD and reinstalling from scratch.

If you only wish to change the regional settings then go to start => run and type intl.cpl. Then change all the settings there to English. This won't change the main language of the operating system, only your input and regional settings.

Ok this is going to sound so stupid but how the hell do you change the language settings for office 2010, specifically Word. I have moved from the UK to the US and I need to have my spell checker in American sadly. I have tried changing the default to US and it changes instantly back to the UK. The help suggests I have to change the keyboard language - this is patently a ridiculous suggestion/solution. I already have the problem that although my keyboard language is set to UK some of the keys register in the American format (ie several keys are swtiched around and I just have to remember them). Only an idiot would link the keyboard language to the default language in the software so there must be another solution. Suggestions welcome.

So, I'm trying to install the Google Pinyin keyboard program on 4 computers here at my school. The GTAs log in through Novell to get to their stuff.

I tried installing the program on both a local admin account and a Novell admin account but whenever I switch between the two or get onto a GTA account, the settings disappear. The program remains, I just have to manually re-add the keyboard settings each time I log into any account.

Working with my personal PC, the pinyin stayed installed and configured correctly on my main account, didn't show up on a test account, but appears to be permenantly set on the main.

Am I missing something? Are langauge settings account specifc? Are they not sticking because of the network privledges?

Hey there, when I first got Vista it had the language settings easily accessible via toolbar, I accidentally got rid of it but I can't get it back, now my keyboard keeps randomly switching over to Canadian (French) and I can't use question marks. I can access the keyboard language also via ctrl + alt + delete but that gets annoying and doesn't always work, how do I get it back on the toolbar.

Hi, looks like wingdings (then maybe not), this does have the stamp of a nasty have you run your Anti Virus program? This registry file will restore default system fonts though if it will work I am not sure, will do no harm. Copy and paste all below into notepad then in notepad open "file" then "save as" in the save box call it Fonts.reg and save to desktop. Open desktop and double click to merge into registry. Reboot to take effect.



Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontSubstitutes]

"MS Shell Dlg 2"="Tahoma"
"MS Shell Dlg"="Microsoft Sans Serif"

Otherwise we could copy all fonts to a temp folder then delete fonts from registry and then install them again from the temp folder. I have seen this before however it was yers ago and I do not remember how we resolved it. Let us know how you get on.

EDIT It would be worth trying a system restore to before this happened.

Had to buy a second hand computer here in Thailand, my new one having been stolen by an old soon to be dead expat and his bar girl wife whilst I was half dead in hospital.

However, everything's in Thai in the Firefox interface. I've looked to see how I can change to English without having to run everything through Google Translate. Even a newly downloaded Photoscape is in Thai.

I read that Windows XP now requires the original CD to enable changing the language default, which I do not have. Is this the case?

A:Language settings

You cannot change the Default Language of XP, You would have to reinstall XP to do that. But you can add a second language, this requires an XP CD. You would go to Control Panel/Regional Language and Settings change the language on the Language tab/.

Good morning,

I'd like to get some informations about the language settings of Windows 7.
I'm a student in France, so I'm able to benefit from the students offer. The only problem is that, apparently, since I'm in a french university, I'll get a french upgrade of Windows 7, although I prefer it in English :/

So my question is, would I be able to change the system's language from french to english, knowing that I already have an english version of Vista Premium installed? Can we install the language packs (LIP) on this W7 Premium?
I've searched throughout this forum, and I saw some tricks that consists in changing a few variables in some register files, is that really reliable, and would it be harmless to my PC? (I don't want to risk messing it up ).
Thanks for your time.

A:Windows 7 language settings

Hello Elyas,
I am sorry to say that there is no way to change the language in Windows 7 for any version other than Ultimate.

I have another idea, though. Try calling Microsoft and asking to buy the student offer from them. Tell them that you want the English version of Windows 7 Professional for $30. The worst that will happen is they say no.

Hope this helps,

Hi,

Thanks

A:Changing Language Settings.

Are you asking whether or not the installation can be performed in a language other than English?Or, are you asking whether or not you can change the language in which the operating system is displayed after the operating system is installed?In either case, the answer is yes. If you are referring to changing the language in which the installation program is displayed, the first screen of the installation gives the user the option of choosing a different language to use for the installation process.If you are seeking to change the default operating system language after you have already installed Vista, just go to Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options. Once you are in the Regional and Language Options control panel, choose the "Keyboards and Languages" tab. Under the "Display Languages" subsection, click "Install/uninstall languages...".Hope that helps.

For example, typing the quotation mark then an a results in , and the apostrophe plus an a is . If I just want a quotation mark I have to hit the space bar before it shows up.

I recently got a computer with Windows 7 Professional (64, SP1) pre-installed. It's in Swedish, but I'd prefer English. After doing some research I gleaned that I cannot use Windows Update to get the job done, as that is only an option in other versions of Win7. So I tried Vistalizator. It seemed to do the job fine, but when it came time to change the language I was prompted that I needed 2 updates to Windows. I did so but the second one wasn't recognized/didn't take. I uninstalled it, did it again. Same thing. So I'm getting nowhere using Vistalizator.

Is there any other method where I can get an English MUI to run?

I appreciate any advice. Thank you.

I have set up my language bar in a certain way (see attached screenshot).

When working on different Windows 7 machines, I would like to set it up in the same way.

Do I always have to configure the language bar manually, or is there a way to automate it?

For instance, if I all the language bar settings are stored in the registry (which I consider likely), and I know which registry keys are involved, I could export just those keys and import them on each new host.

A:Transfering language bar settings to new machine

You have two input languages, the other one (Japanese) using IME.

The easiest and fastest way would be to go to language settings on a new computer, enable German and Japanese input languages and also select Japanese IME.

Takes 30 to 40 seconds, involves no registry editing.

Hi.
I need to be able to input text using three different languages: English (US), Russian, Ukrainian.
To that end I have prepared the following:

As you see, UI is being overridden to Ukrainian too, which is also desired.
I also need to be able to switch input languages NOT using any cyclic shortcut like Ctrl+Shift or Alt+Shift, but by language-specific shortcut, namely Ctrl+1 for English, Ctrl+2 for Ukrainian, Ctrl+3 for Russian. It has been so for years for me and I got used to it.
To that end I found the following setup

There you see two Ukrainian layouts (I made one myself, another one is built-in).

The problem is that Ctrl+1 for English works, Ctrl+3 for Russian works too, but BOTH shortcuts for Ukrainian layots do NOT work. When I press Ctrl+2 or Ctrl+4 just nothing happens. I tried to change the Ukrainian shortcuts to no avail.

What should I do?

UPD. What's more interesting thing I just discovered, is that these Ukrainian shortcuts do work selectively.
In Notepad and MS Word -- don't work
In Mozilla Thunderbird and Firefox, also Skype -- does work.

UPD2. Shortcuts seem to be working everywhere EXCEPT the software written by Microsoft. What an irony

A:Input language settings problem

Hi,

Did Ukrainian keyboard layouts come with Windows or were installed separately (e.g. had been created with the keyboard layout creator)?

In the latter case, try to remove them and replace with the standard Ukrainian layout, then assign the same shortcut. Does the shortcut work?

Hi everyone,

We recently had to reinstall Windows XP onto our CPU, but the version we reinstalled seems to be lacking a few non essential files. Previously we had no problem displaying simplified Chinese, traditional Chinese, Japanese and Korean characters, but since the installation of this version of Windows XP the computer hasn't the necessary files to display them correctly.

I tried rectifying the problem by following a thread on a similar website to this. The process I enacted was as follows:

Open 'Control Panel',

Select 'Date, Time, Language and Regional Options',

Select 'Add Other Languages',

Select 'Advanced' on the pop up window 'Regional and Language Options',

I then ticked the boxes of the languages I wished to be displayed, and clicked 'Apply'. Windows prompted me to insert the installation CD, and I hadn't realised this would be necessary. I didn't have the installation CD, so I had to click 'Cancel'.

I then received the message 'Windows setup could not copy the appropriate files'. I clicked 'OK', then deselected the Language options I had just selected.

This is all fine, except that following this minor tinkering which amounted to nothing now whenever I turn on the computer I receive the following message:

A:In language settings i have 4 languages, on taskbar just 3

You may have to do something under "Options" to make it visible. I used to have UK+US Language and KB. Both have different Input Languages (input = KB language).

I think the deal is, in the taskbar, those are KEYBOARD languages, not display languages. Switching Win Key + Space wont change your Display Text, and you have UK installed as Display Text Only. Add it as a Keyboard Language too, you do that in Options. But it will confuse your keyboard - ie, the @ key is no longer @ but the pound sign in a UK KB. Be careful to change back to a US KB when entering email addresses.

In ?Region & Language? in the control panel, I have added the appropriate keyboards; in a couple of cases, I have downloaded third-party keyboards. Usually no problem?I set the language bar for the one I want to use, switch to an appropriate font if necessary, and everything goes smoothly. Not long ago Word encountered some sort of glitch and I had to reboot to get it back. I discovered that some of the languages I had added in ?Region & Language? had been deleted. I added them back. Now Word refuses to recognize the non-Latin keyboards. I can type only in the Latin alphabet. I try to reinstall, using the same procedure as always, and it does no good. What is wrong? I didn?t make any changes that I am aware of that would interfere with non-Roman keyboards.

Is there a way to change default language from English to French(Canadian) on Win7 Home so that all desktop icons and folders are in French(Canadian)? I notice you can change the time and date style but not the actual language. Buddy of mine told me it was possible to do so on Win7 Ultimate but not on any of the lower versions.

Thanks

To access this feature you'll have to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate. Of the Windows 7 editions, it's the only one that has the multi-language feature. You can find a complete chart comparing the software here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/products/compare?T1=tab01

Hi

I've got a simple problem. I can't get MS word 2000 to spell check in UK english. I have followed the help advice and used office tools - office language settings to set office to uk english but word still spell checks in US english.

Does anyone know how to solve this - or why my fix doesn't work?

Thanks

Steven

Hey, Steven...

All files do this? Did it just start happening, or has it always? Might want to try closing Word and renaming normal.dot to normal.old. Reopen Word, hit ctrl-a and set the language to desired (you know--recognise instead of recognize, I don't know WHY you guys don't just spell it right in the first place!! Haha!). Make sure you go to Tools-Options-Save tab and select Prompt to save normal template; go to the General tab and turn on Macro Virus Protection (should be on by default, I think). Close Word, save normal template if prompted, and reopen Word. Does it work? Let me know...

Hi,

We are about to roll out Microsoft BDD, but when the OS installs, it sets the language settings as US. This doesnt really help as we are in the UK.
Is there a way that I can script it so I can run that script as a program at first boot up?

Thanks!

I use Outlook Express for my newsreader subscriptions. Upon replying to a message, my spell check would pop up with corrections to simple English words such as "what", "it", "why" and so on. After I choose the ignore option to send anyway, I viewed the spelling option and discovered the reason was the language was set to French. The problem is, when clicking the drop down menu for other languages, there aren't any. French is my only option. Therefore, is there a language update or something I can install to get the default language to English?

Thank you

Do you have Microsoft Office 2007 or Microsoft Office 2010 installed? The issue you describe crops up in OE after installing Office 2007 or 2010.Since OE does not have a spell checker, it relies on spell check installed by MS Office Programs. If you had a previous version of Office and upgraded, the new 2007/2010 files are incompatible withOE. Microsoft is aware of the issue but has no plans to correct it. If you want to use spell check with OE, you will have to 1) uninstall Office 2007/2010 and go back to a previous version OR2) install a third-party spell check for use with OE. This is the better option, especially if you purchased Office 2007/2010. You don't want to uninstall it and end up wasting your money after paying for it. Spell Checker for OE 2.1 is available for download HERE http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=2952Microsoft article about the issue includes this information:When you upgrade an earlier version of Office to a 2007 Office system or Office 2010, the old spelling checker files are removed for the following languages: EnglishSpanishGermanhttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/932974And from AnswersThatWork-Outlook Express Spell Check is French after Office 2007 install (the info page is a .pdf document, click the red link to view the document)

Hello,

I am having a problem on a computer that has other languages installed one of them being Korean. In the address bar the backslash is represented as a "W" with a line through it. Because of this a certain program is not running. I have disabled all the other languages through the "Region and Language Settings" but it still shows backslashes with the "W".

Anybody know how to get rid of that behavior?

Thanks,
mentallo
