How can I change a language in SolidWorks?

By Mourad Mouelhi on 12 Dec 11:36 4 answers 3 comments

I'm using Solidworks 2015 SP3 and I want to set the language to French. Though I selected the option during the installation, the program is still in English.

    Hola Mourad, prueba con esta opcion:

    1.- Go to menu "Option"
    2.- Seleccione la casilla de verificacion: "Use French language feature and files"
    3.- Selecione la casilla de verificacion: "Use French language menus"
    4.- Pulse el boton "OK"
    4.- Cierre la aplicacion y vuelva a abrirla.

    Change "system locale" not the best way.

    1. Go to SolidWorks directory - "C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\SOLIDWORKS\lang" as sample.
    2. Rename directory "english" to "english+" for backup.
    3. Rename directory whatever language you need to "english" (example "russian" to "english")
    4. Enjoy

    Best regards!
