I found a website with something to help you translate the menus. The fact is that if your wii is a Japanese version with a mod chip to play all regions, you may not be able to change to English because Japanese wii's do not support English in their menus. With the help of this link, you will be able to set it up at least. American games will have English for the language so its just a matter of setting up the system. Good Luck

Hi,

I am sorry but the Japanese Wii has no option for English language menus. All Wii menus will be in Japanese.

    I forgot to mention that if you are playing US/European games then they will be in English. It's just the UI that will be in Japanese. If you only use the console to play games then there isn't much to tinker with in the Wii itself. If you do however, want to know what's going on, then I would advise checking out the English manuals here and here to navigate the Wii menu.

    This will also help you navigate the Japanese menus.

Need to get back to english


Researched this extensively. you cannot change the camera to english. sony camera's bought in japan (or from the internet from japanese suppliers are not multi language. they supply a japanese version and an international version. the japanese version is cheaper (nationalistic thing). there is no firmware either to upgrade it. best thing to do is download the manual and become familiar with it.

Japanese version to english


No, the Wii is region locked. Unless you get a mod chip to play out of region games. But I don't think there is a way to change the menu language.

Is japanese wii compatible with english wii fit?


No it does not. You can't play European games either for that matter, only Japanese games.
However there is a way around it, though it's a bit complicated and you'll need Zelda Twilight Princess (japanese version in your case) and an SD card.

Information can be found here: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Twilight_Hack#Download (used to install the Wii Homebrew Channel)
and used in combination with this:
http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_Channel/Help (Wii hombrew channel install files)
and finally this:
http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_apps/GeckoOS (homebrew application allowing you to play games from other regions)

If you need any help I'll walk you through it. This isn't endorsed by Nintendo whatsoever. No warranty on this at all. I have done it myself and there have been no adverse effects.

Brought wii in singapore and wont help as it is in different langue??


Its in Japanese right? Modding it to English is an illegal practice, not to mention its not advisable as it will restrict the number of games you can play. My suggestion is that you sell your current Wii and purchase another US version.
