Link to translate German Microsoft into English

Hello there,

Can anyone tell me how to download/buy/whatever our current Microsoft software on a computer bought in Germany into English? Is there a link somewhere?

Many thanks for help,

Aggie

Unfortunately no such luck, MS can only be bought in a single language. To change you would have to buy the English version an reinstall.

Re: Link to translate German Microsoft into English

You need to change the language settings in the control panel. See the information in this link

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...splay-language

You may need to download additional languages if they are not already on the system but the instructions are in the link.

Good Luck
