How can I change a language in SolidWorks?

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.

there is only use English language menus my friend :/

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!

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.

You can change language by changing windows system language in Control panel -> Regional and language options -> Administrative -> Change system lacale to French. Restart SolidWorks. But you must have French language installed in SolidWorks.
