just click this linkand for instructions How to install a different language ROM in you PDA
iPAQ 3900 series..
1.- Download the last ROM update for iPAQ 3900 series.
2.- Using Winzip, unpack the ROM update file.
3.- Run the program update utility until it asks to push the upgrade button.
4.- Without leaving the utility, open the .NBF file extracted from iPAQ update.
    for 3975 English series is: NK_Windsor21010WWE.nbf
    for 3970 Spanish series is: NK_Wisr210_14_ESP_BT.nbf
    for 3955 English series is: NK_Windsor11010WWE.nbf
    for 3950 Spanish series is: NK_Wisr111_01ESP_NBT.nbf
5.- Hex edit that file and you will find something like:
For 3975 English series.-
iPAQ 3900-WBT-ENG-2.10-2CF4...
For 3955 English series.-
iPAQ 3900-NBT-ENG-1.10-9673...
6.- Replace "ENG" with your current country code ("SPA" for Spanish, "FRE" for French, "GER" for German...).
7.- Replace the hex checksum value for the correct country checksum (see tables below).
ie: To change a 3970 from Spanish to English, change the 2cf4 for 2cfe
for more detailed instruction above this click this link
you can switch the language. But it is not easy. Especially with the new 
iPAQs it is hard to do, because HP did lock the previous possible ways of 
doing that. I have never done this but all I know is that you have to 
download the ROM update from HP website, use hex editor to alter some data 
in the ROM file so that the loading software thinks that it is the proper 
file for your original PDA language. Probably you have to find and change a 
string which equals to the language name. If your iPAQ has for example 
french ROM, you have to download english ROM from HP website and then change 
the ROM ID to french one.

Help me convert my Windows Vista OS from German To English

The display language is the language that Windows uses in wizards, dialog boxes, menus, and other items in the user interface. Some display languages are installed by default, and others require you to install additional language files.

Click to open Regional and Language Options.

Click the Keyboards and Languages tab.

Under Display language, choose a language from the list, and then click OK.

If you don't see the list of display languages, you need to install additional language files first. For more information, see Install a display language.

It is possible to change menus and basic controls to english - you have to install a windows add-on software (that changes your keyboard layout and local settings. Try Their Language Extender product should do the job - however, it's not free.
