If you're using Microsoft Windows, then there may be two changes to that:

- I don't think that current versions install the language selector the the Start menu anymore
- recent builds of GIMP may offer a language selection in the preferences (if they have been built with the iso-codes library).

Environment variables will work as documented on all platforms, though.

Hi Schumaml

I had a look at both links as well but they are for an XP user but I have Vista and that didnt help me at all.

Any idea???

Vista has also a control panel or something similair; look here for system --> tab: advanced --> environment variables.

I had the same discussion for windows 7 on the dutchgimpers.nl site. If you can read Dutch you can search also here.

Hi

Unfortunately I only speak English and German.

Wow my problem has been solved. I just clicked on the .bat file on my desktop and an English Version of Gimp appeared.

I feel like embracing the whole world.

Thanks all of you for your help - I was even trying to learn Dutch and I understood a bit.

Cheers
