Lightroom 2 Language Selection

For those working with the new language versions of Lightroom, if you would like to switch languages just follow these instructions:


  • In Lightroom, visit Edit –> Preferences and click on the General tab
  • Select the desired language from the dropdown
  • Restart Lightroom

Lightroom follows the operating system language preference.  To change it:

  • Visit the Mac OS X System Preferences and select International
  • Select the desired language in the list and drag it to the top of the list
  • Restart Lightroom

Thanks again for everyone’s feedback on our new updates.
