Japanese to English Version

I am not sure if this will help or not but it is worth a try. Here is how to change the language. Hopefully there will be a option to choose English.

How to change the language:

  1. On the Nintendo DSi Menu, use the stylus to select the Settings ("wrench") icon.
  2. Select the right arrow thee times to go to page 4, then select "Language."
  3. Select from the options options on the screen:
    • English
    • Français (French)
    • Español (Spanish)
  4. Select OK (the bottom-right button) to confirm and return to the System Settings.
Note: Some games that feature multiple languages may display in the language you have selected in the system settings.

Ds lite to english

First, go to the Settings Menu (the small DS icon at the bottom in the main menu). Then click on the first, pink icon with a white wrench on it. Press the icon with the sphere-like shape on it. Finally, select the language you want. Press confirm and you're done!

Hope this helps!

If it altered the selected language in the game too, there should be a option in the game where you should be able to change the language. In most games at start up there is usually a menu screen where you can select:" new game, options, continue,(it sometimes might vary)" Language settings (if any at all) are usually found in "game options."

Exactly what game is this problem on? I'm assuming that since your daughter changed the language, that she knows how to go back to the DS configuration settings to select the language. If that is the area of information that you did need though, You can post another comment here asking that.

If what I've posted isn't helpful, a recommended place for DS and game support is found here:

I got this from the web-site. It works.
1. Put in game and turn on.
2. At Menu tap the bottom listing (Op...)
3. Tap the top listing until English appears. It goes through a bunch of languages.
4. Then hit the arrow on lower left of screen and you are all set.
