    I used it for 5 days where it worked fine in English. When i went to re-use it two days later, it goes straight to German.

Try to navigate through the menu and look for the language option and set it back to US English.

Menu- Preferences - Language - choose language

If problem still persists, you may need to restore to factory default settings:

Preferences - Saved Info - Restore Factory Default

Hope this helps!

    English is the language by default. If it defaults to other language, it is possible that English language might have been uninstalled. You need to reload using the disk.

    First turn the System off and then back on to make sure you are at the main menu. From the main menu, click on the wrench icon near the lower right corner of the screen.


    From the menu, look for another wrench icon, this time in the upper left corner, which represents the Settings menu. Click on the wrench icon.


    Now in the Settings menu, look for the Lips icon which should be in the first column of the second row… the lower left of the big white buttons. Click on the lips.


    In the Language menu now, you want to change the language text which is displayed near the upper right corner of the three displayed buttons.


    Finally, in the language menu, look for ‘American English’. It may not be at the top of the list as this example photo shows, however you can use the down arrow to scroll through until you find it. Select ‘American English’ and click ‘OK’. You should now be back with a familiar language.

    Sorry I'm unable to upload the pics out here don't know what is the problem. Your question was locked with other experts for quite long today I got the opportunity to post my comments. Anyways if this is also not solving your problem you are most welcome to revert back to me.

Hi, it seems like the GPS unit or the unit's firmware has been manufactured for the german language, you will need to upgrade the firmware/maps to English US.

I just bought a computer from a german shop and plugged it in and tried to set it up in english but it has not??


Dear carlee, I think you bought the system with windows. As you buy this in germany, the windows is loaded in german language. so it may not be changed from german to English. For this the must easy method is to format your PC and a load a new operating system. in time of loading choose the English and in future you would not face any problem on language as English will become the default language for your system.

Bought an Archos 7 Home Tablet Yesterday and the screen is all in GERMAN how do I get it to display in ENGLISH I was not given the option to go to any setup mode date time and language were already set up...


You should get to the "language and region settings" from the menu, and choose a language. If you see everything in german, the help I can give you at first that language means german as "sprache".
If this is not enough you should need a dictionary or a web-translator page on the internet.

Why is my admin page in german? when i access the admin page to setup my password, it comes up in german language, not english.


Well, if you bought it from someone in germany or austria, thats most likely why. Your pretty much SOL :(. If you didn't though... call linksys and ask them if they know how to change the language.

Follow these steps to resolve the issue.
  1. Unplug the power cord from the back of the product.
  2. Press and hold the # and 6 buttons simultaneously on the control panel, and then reconnect the power cord.
  3. Continue pressing the buttons until the display goes blank or Reset shows on the control panel display.

Change language to English


This might be a problem.. Windows controls the actual display language (thats the dialog boxes, the windows and all the screen messages you see).

If you have a german copy of windows it might be just german. That means you might NOT be able to change the display language to english.

IF you have what's called windows MUI you might be able to change the display language.

Ask the guy or company you bought it from if they have windows CD's. You're likely going to need them. See if by any remote chance you DO have Windows XP MUI (stands for multi user interface)

It's unlikely you do, but at least ask.


There are options to change the language but it's usually not for the display it's for spelling or how dates and the like appear.

Language settings


Sorry but I have bad news for you. If you buy one product like PDA or Notebook you buy automatically OS with license. As far as i know Microsoft do not sell Pocket PC as retail product. I can not understund why Microsoft does not sell the different language as they do for Windows XP. Therefor, a German PDA may not be flashed with another language version. Only what you can do is make some updates in the installed language. If you want to have PDA with English OS you must ask your local dealer whether it is possible to order such one.
