The default language is English! You don't generally need to select English because that's what you get by default - of course it is there in the list as "(Default) English - UK" but there are no other specific English US or English AU if that's what you mean - because no one has bothered to make a translation between the two - (probably because there really isn't much point). If you would like to make one then feel free (all the translations [and it is by no means ALL of them!] are supplied by the community and not made by me - please remember XMBC is a hobby project!).

Sigh.

It IS in English by default. If you have changed it then you can change it back by selecting Default (English UK) on the Language tab on the global settings screen.

Just to be clear, did you download XMBC from my website (xmbc.highrez.co.uk), Are you using the portable version or the installed version (Im referring to the installed version but the portable version should have exactly the same defaults and languages).

I'm afraid I don't know what else to suggest, I wrote it and I know for sure that its English by default (its all I speak!).

I'm not sure what you mean by a "bunch of applications" - do you mean files a bunch of files? There is only ONE application in the XMBC installation - XMBC (XMouseButtonControl.exe). There are lots of translation files (with the extension XMBCLP) these are the only translation (text) files (who's purpose is to translate the baked in English to the foreign alternatives). You don't need any of them if you want English but you (everyone) get them all so you (everyone) can choose the language they want from a dropdown in the settings window. English, as I say, is baked in - I wonder if you somehow managed to open one of the XMBCLP files directly in Explorer. If you did you open one of these files directly in explorer - that will cause XMBC to load that translation straight away - maybe that is what has caused this confusion!.

If you have done that there are options - delete all the files with the XMBCLP extension - if XMBC cant find the file, it wont use it. Better would be to hit the settings button (granted - that may be tricky if you have already loaded a translation!) and find the language tab (like in the last screen shot, and in the dropdown, select "Default English (UK)".

By the way, you can post images after 5 posts (new users cant post URLs or images here to prevent spam bots posting malicious/unwanted stuff. You could email or PM me anything directly!?
