Try taking the batteries out overnight. That should let the internal battery drain so that the next time you put batteries in the camera it will ask you what language to set it to.
Second. Go to any camera store or even walmart with camera in hand. and take a second camera and hit its menu "the one at the store thats set to english." and find out where the language selection is at so that you can do that same thing on yours and you wont have to worry about being able to read what it says on yours. and then you should be able to switch it back to english.

The only problem would be if you bought this camera online from a Company that deals with Grey Market cameras which are camera that are sent from another country that are not meant to be sold in the US and sometimes those cameras dont have english. But I would try those other two options before worrying about that.

Setting my canon powershot s5is to the english language


The cameras are not meant to have multiple languages. You accidentally received a Japanese version of the camera. Call of the manufacturer and they should send you an English version. Let me know if you need anything else and I would be glad to help
