Dear All,

I'd like to use English for my user interface,
but when I update to 5.3.0.
Eagle CAD default chooses Simplified Chinese for my UI.

How can I switch to English?

Thanks,
Troy

EAGLE decides depending on the operating systems' language which
language to use. If the systems' language variable is set to chinese,
EAGLE will use chinese language.

What you can do to change EAGLE's language:

You could define an environment variable EAGLE takes care on.
Go to the Windows Control Panel where you can define environment
variables. Set up a variable named LANG.
For english language the value should be set to en_GB or en_US.

You could this define with the help of a batch file, like in this
example:

SET LANG=en_GB
C:\Program files\eagle-5.x.x\bin\eagle.exe

This is of use, if there are also other applications that react on
the LANG variable. The batch affects EAGLE, only.

What I wrote for Windows, works for Linux or Mac, as well.
There you have to define the varaible with the systems' EXPORT
command. Or use a script file:

LANG=en_GB
/home/user/eagle-5.x.x/bin/eagle

Hope this helps.

Which language is the primary language of eagle and which
are the translated ones? I want to install the language with
least translation problems.

Kind regards,

The source text is English and translated into German immediately.
Or maybe sometimes the other way round.....
I'ld say both languages are on a par.

This just doesn't work for Eagle 6.5.0 and Ubuntu 13.10 and Xubuntu 13.10.

It is so rediculous. Both systems are completely set up in english, but also going over the chinese download link ends up downloading the update script from the german FTP server.

Setting the LANG variable doesn't help at all, Eagle keeps starting up in German.

Any ideas?

can't say for linux, but running windows there eagle_*.qm, .htm and
qt_*.qm files in the eagle/bin folder.

removing/renaming them results in eagle defaulting to english.

maybe not the official/correct way, but it works for me on windows.
