    Wakuu habari za leo...
    Nina kompyuta ambayo niliagiza toka China aina ya Lenovo na inatumia Window XP. Kinachonipa shida ni jinsi ya kubadilisha Lugha.
    Nimejaribu kwenda
    control panel>language and regional option>language>install other languages, ila hola kwani kila niki-apply inaniambia kuna mafile yanamiss.
    Naomba mnijuze ni mafaili gani natakiwa kudownload ili lugha ibadilike.
    Naomba msaada wenu kabla sijafikia option ya mwisho ambayo ni ku-format.

    Kwa maoni yangu, naona ni kheri ku-install upya WinXP yenye lugha ya Kingereza kutoka kwenye CD, haya mambo ya kutaka ku-convert kichina kwenda lugha ya kingereza matokeo yake ni highly unpredictable unaweza ku-end up na some orphan files ambazo zinaweza ku-corrupt OS nzima.

    Hivi kwa nini unapendelea kubadirisha lugha badala ya ku-install upya? Mkuu au kuna application prog ambazo unaziona you cannot do without 'em!

    Changing OS Languages in Windows XP
    [FONT=Calibri, sans-serif]January 5, 2009 - jekkilekki[/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri, sans-serif]I recently needed to change languages in my Windows XP Operating System because I teach English in Korea, and all the computers in the office have Windows installed in Korean. Though I'm learning the language, nothing beats being able to read about the computer problems and solve them on your own in your native language (mine = English). Therefore, here are the steps, links, and images I used to successfully change my Windows XP from Korean to English.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri, sans-serif]
    [/FONT]

    [FONT=Calibri, sans-serif]1. Download the Windows Service Pack 3 installer to your computer IN YOUR DESIRED OS LANGUAGE[/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri, sans-serif](in my case English). You can find the download from the Microsoft website, here: Windows SP3 Download[/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri, sans-serif]
    [/FONT]

    [FONT=Calibri, sans-serif]2. Open Regedit from the start menu[/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri, sans-serif](Start -> Run… -> "regedit"), to change the Language Registry Key values.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri, sans-serif]
    [/FONT]

    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]


    The Registry Keys to change are located in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/ControlSet001/Control/NIs/Language"
    [​IMG]


    [h=4]**IMPORTANT**[/h]Always create a Backup of your Registry Keys before changing any values. Wouldn't want to create a huge problem to fix later. This can be done by clicking on "File -> Export…" and saving the values anywhere you can find them later (if there is a problem you can always restore the original keys with "File -> Import…" and choosing those keys you saved earlier.

    After saving a copy of your Registry, you can edit the "Default" and "InstallLanguage" keys to the numerical value of the language you want to change to (in my case, the initial language value was 0412 for "Korean", which I changed to 0409 for "English: US")
    A full list of numbers that represents each language in registry is provided below (found on Xisto forum):

    [h=2]5. After successful installation of SP3, restart your computer again for the settings to all take effect.[/h][h=2]6. Upon Restart, Windows should now be in the language of your choosing.[/h]You may need to reinstall any applications into the language of your choice as Windows settings don't necessarily affect the language settings of individual programs (in my case I had to reinstall Internet Explorer 8 in English, andGoogle Chrome in English).
    [h=4]**NOTE**[/h]Some small parts of your OS may still be in the original language (like the Accessories folder), but the majority of it will be in your new chosen language.
    [h=2]7. Success!! You have now successfully changed the language of your Windows XP Operating System![/h]I used to complain about how Windows made it impossible to change the language of their OS, and that Mac was so much simpler, allowing near instantaneous switching of menu languages and such. I still think Mac is better, but at least now I don't need to swear off Windows altogether.

    [h=2]**8. UPDATE** Still need the original language?[/h]Trick your computer into reading other programs in their native language.
    Since moving to Jeonju University, I've needed to access a Korean computer program and make it read Korean characters. However, after the switch to English, the Korean characters that should have told me student names only showed up as "boxes." Find out how to fix that in my next post: Trick your Windows XP computer into reading programs in their native language.
    [h=2]What about you?[/h]Has this article helped you out? Do you know of any simpler ways to change languages in Windows? I've not played around much with Vista. Do you know how to change languages in Vista? Mkuu.@tindikalikali
