You can go one of three ways. From the music/headphones icon, press down 3x (to get to settings);
right 1x (to enter settings); down to the fourth option/line (observe
the scroll bar to make sure you count from the very top) right 1x (to
enter the languages menu). You will find your own language in plain
text. It should work unless your setup is different or I miscounted somewhere. If that doesn't work, try updating the firmware. By doing that, it will ask you which language you would like to use on your Clip. If either of those do not work, plug your Clip into the computer. Then go to my computer under the start menu, find your mp3 player under the list (should be under 'devices with removable storage', or something to that effect). Right click on the mp3 player icon, and click "format". Go with the format it suggests, then reinstall the firmware from there. It will be like starting from square one.

If you accidentally set iPod nano to use a language you don’t understand
You can reset the language.
1 Press and hold Menu until the main menu appears.
2 Choose the sixth menu item (Settings).
3 Choose the last menu item (Reset Settings).
4 Choose the first item (Reset) and select a language.
Other iPod nano settings, such as song repeat, are also reset.
Note: If you added or removed items from the iPod nano main menu (see “Adding or
Removing Items on the Main Menu” on page 11) the Settings menu item may be in a
different place. If you can’t find the Reset Settings menu item, you can restore
iPod nano to its original state and choose a language. See “Updating and Restoring
iPod Software” on page 69.
You have to reset your iPod. (Note: This is for the 3rd generation iPod Nano)
To reset iPod nano:
1 Toggle the Hold switch on and off (slide it to HOLD and then back again).
2 Press and hold the Menu and Center buttons for at least 6 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
If iPod nano won’t turn on or respond
- Make sure the Hold switch isn’t set to HOLD.
- The iPod nano battery might need to be recharged. Connect iPod nano to your computer or to an Apple USB Power Adapter and let the battery recharge. Look for the lightning bolt icon on the iPod nano screen to verify that iPod nano is receiving a charge.
I had the same problem when I first got the player and selected another language.
I looked at the booklet and figured when first turning it on, hit the down arrow 3 times, then select, then hit the down arrow 4 times then select is how I got to English setting.
