Changing the Language on a Mac!

This is the perfect time of year to learn how to change the language on your Mac. For students who are not allowed to read this in English, perhaps someone in each language school can translate this into the desired language and post in the classroom for the students.

  • You start by going into your System Preference, in your dock it looks like the gears of a clock. Or click on the Apple Logo at the top left and then select System Preference.
  • In System Preference, click on Languages &Text.
  • Under the language tab, you will notice a list of languages.  If you do not see the desired language, click Edit List below the list of languages.  Select the language you want to add to the list. Then, select the desired language from the list and drag it to the top of the list.
  • To see the change right away without logging out, click the red button to close Languages and Texts.
  • Click on the Apple Logo and click Force Quit Finder.
  • Select Finder and click on Relaunch.

Now you are ready to enjoy the summer at Middlebury Language School!
