I wish to install an English language version but it automatically chooses my OS version which is in Spanish

Asked by Stephen Brown on 2020-05-25

I downloaded version 2.5.1, installed, switched the installer to English, opened the app and found everything in Spanish.
I uninstalled it, switched my VPN to USA and reinstalled it again - the same.
I uninstalled it, downloaded again with my VPN (looks like the exact same installer), installed and opened. Still in Spanish.

My OS is in Spanish and I can't change that, But I have many other apps all in English.

The interface language will follow the system by default, but there's a language selection dropbox on the first tab in the Preferences window that will let you select any language available. That SHOULD include English, although there's no actual translation file.

Thanks. YES! This did help to solve the problem.

However, the answer could be improved to specify in the SECOND TAB - the pull down EDIT menu in the preferences section.

The program could be improved by placing an ENGLISH listing in alphabetical order of E and not just under British or Canadian English, but rather ENGLISH (British) and ENGLISH (Canadian)-

Thanks
