Change the Device Language Set the default language on your device to update the device menus, keyboard and default dictionary. Help for Kindle Oasis (8th Generation), Kindle (8th Generation), Kindle Voyage (7th Generation), Kindle Paperwhite (7th Generation), Kindle (7th Generation) and Kindle Paperwhite (6th Generation).
You can set your default device language to one of the following languages: English (U.S., UK), German, French (France, Canada), Italian, Spanish (Spain, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Colombia), Portuguese (Brazil), Japanese, Chinese (Simplified), Russian or Dutch.
When you select a new language, the device menus, keyboard and default dictionary will update automatically; the User Guide and any content downloaded to your Kindle will remain the same.
Note: When you change the language on your Kindle, the dictionary and keyboard for that language (if available) will automatically download to your device when connected to Wi-Fi. The default dictionary and keyboard will change based on the language of the book you're reading.
To change your language settings:

  1. From Home, tap the Menu icon and then tap Settings.
  2. Tap Language and Dictionaries and then tap one of the following options:
    • Language - select a different language for your Kindle.
    • Keyboard - select a region-specific layout for the keyboard.
    • Dictionaries - set the default dictionary for each language.

How do I use the gift card I received for payment I have put it in the payment slot and still says I need payment.

To redeem your gift card, go to the Amazon site and search for Gift Cards then click on"Apply a gift card to your account." . Find a claim code, on the card under grey protective coating and very gently scratch it off and reveal the claim code. Your purchases will be read in the "current Balance" and will remove the $ amount on your card, with each purchase. Enjoy spending!

What is wrong with my Kindle? The help you gave the other night helped some but now it is worse.

Have you tried adding the program again? If you haven't spent a lot of money, you might want to download again. This will be a NEW game. Plays and score have to be loaded again, Ask the players to add you to their game again.

The language settings are only shown on the initial setup display when the Kindle is first activated as advised in the Kindle Support web site.

You may have to do a full reset of your Kindle to try to get back to the initial display to change language settings - try pressing and holding the power switch for 20 seconds to perform a reset.
