How can I change an application language?
By default all our software uses the language specified in your system preferences as the user interface language. In the case you need to use our software in a different language from your system language please click here. Global system preferences can be set here:

Windows XP: Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Regional Options tab
Windows Vista and higher: Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Formats tab
macOS: International pane -> Language tab

In order to use our software in your preferred language, simply set that language in the corresponding control panel, save/apply the new settings and then launch the software:

In both Windows XP and Windows Vista/8/10 you just have to select your language from the language pull-down menu, click on the Apply button, close the control panel and launch your application.

In macOS all the software uses the top-most language specified in your System Preferences (International pane, Language tab) as the user interface language. In order to use our software in your preferred language, simply set that language as the top-most language in the list in the Language tab of the International pane of the macOS System Preferences application, and then launch the software. Note that some languages and local variants do not appear in the Languages: list by default; you will have to press the "Edit…" button, check the desired language, and click "OK" before you will be able to move that language to the top of the list.

Using our software in a different language from the system language
Many non-English users prefer to run their operating system for example in English but still desire to use their application software in their native language. You will find below a step by step procedure for both Microsoft Windows and macOS that explains detail-fully how to change your software language independently of your operating system language.

New paragraph Microsoft Windows:
In order to change the language of a given application independently of the operating system language you need to edit its resources. Just go through the following steps:

1 Go to C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86) on Vista.
2 Locate and open the directory of the application you want to change the language of.
3 Open the 'Resources' or '[appname] Resources' directory.
4 Delete the resource folder corresponding to your system language. For example, if you are using English as your system language move the en.mo folder to the Recycle Bin. (en=english, de=german, fr=french, es=spanish, it=italian, ...)
5 Rename the resource folder of the language you want to use to the name of the resource folder of the system default language. For example, if you want to set the application language to german rename the de.mo to en.mo.
6
Close all the windows and launch the application.

Note: On step 4, if you are not sure of what you are doing perhaps it would be a good idea to drop the file to your desktop rather than to the trash.

New paragraph macOS:
In order to change the language of a given application independently of the operating system language you need to edit its resources. Just go through the following steps:

1 Select the application you want to change the language of.
2 Right-click your mouse or press the command key and click on the icon.
3 Select the Show Package Contents menu.
4 Open theContents folder and then the Resources folder.
5 Delete the resource folder corresponding to your system language. For example, if you are using English as your system language move the en.lproj folder to the trash. (en=english, de=german, fr=french, es=spanish, it=italian, ...)
6
Rename the resource folder of the language you want to use to the name of the resource folder of the system default language. For example, if you want to set the application language to german rename the de.lproj to en.lproj.
7 Close all the package windows and launch the application.

Note: On step 5, if you are not sure of what you are doing perhaps it would be a good idea to drop the file to your desktop rather than to the trash.
