Changing User Language

Hi...I am a Canadian living in Russia and I purchased an ACER Aspire 8920G here in Russia. The computer languages are all in Russian. I have a Russian fiance and would like to keep the Russian in the computer but I would also like to be able to use the computer. Now, the computer is loaded with Windows Vista Home Premium right now and I know that I have to upgrade to Windows Vista Ultimate in order to be able to have Windows in two languages. This should not be a problem. However, I would also like to change the ACER software language to English as well, so that things like ACER Arcade, etc. come up in English. Can this be done? If so, how? Can I purchase a download online? If so, where and what should I be downloading?

Your help would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks,

Mike

    Thanks for the quick response. But I need a little additional help. I have been to this website before, but my problem is that I do not know which of the files I am to download to change my computer language to English. Do I download ALL of the drivers or just selected ones? I am a mechanical engineer...not an IT-type person so I am going to need some help with this. Thanks...

    Sorry I disappeared for a bit, but my job takes me away from my home computer for awhile sometimes. I downloaded the programs you suggested and nothing happened. I figured that it was because my Russian version of Windows Vista was not recognizing the files.



    So I waited until I received my english version of Windows Vista Ultimate. I loaded it last night and then updated the files that I downloaded and...everything worked! My computer is now entirely english!!



    I cannot thank you enough for your help. That was the best $9.99 I have ever spent...talk about getting value for money. Once again, thanks very much and I certainly know where to come if I ever have another problem.



    Many, many thanks,



    Mike

There is a prograt at best buy that you can install into the computer. It is translation software made just for this purpose. I have never seen one online that you can just download.

Hi

you can download the english versions of the software from the acer website http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_8920G.html

You can find the acer programs in english from that page.

    Not the driver, the applications, all the programs you want under empowering technology and utilities. these alone wont change your computer language the will change the language of the programs if they are in russian you will have them in english.

    They are probably not all there, if something is missing let me know and I'll get it for you.

How i can change language spanish inti english


Acer says "Computers are sold with a particular language preinstalled and available on the recovery media. Additional languages are not available. If a language other than the original shipping language is desired, a copy of the operating system in that language would need to be purchased. Restoration of the operating system with recovery media will restore the computer to the original shipping language of the operating system."

Change language from french to english on acer 1 laptop


If you wish to change the language you must download a Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI). Unfortunately such is only supported by Vista Enterprise and Vista Ultimate, so as a Home Premium user there is nothing you can really do unless you are willing to either upgrade to Ultimate or purchase an English copy.
