Hallo, my App Store is in english, but the whole Macbook Pro is in Swiss German. How I can change it.

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.4)

    Go to the bottom of your App Store screen.   Click on the small flag icon.   On the screen that appears click on either Switzerland or Germany.   The flag will change, along with the language.    But I don't think you can change to a regional language variation.

    Well, it seems like we got part of the way there.   Can't understand why the icon change is valid for one machine but not another.    Are you on 10.4 (Tiger) on the other machines, too?

    Don't apologise for your English.  You have done well so far.   But my post above remains and I don't understand why it will not go to German.

    Apple Icon > System Preferences > Language & Text > Drag languages into the order you prefer.

    Ok, so we are talking about the App Store, not itunes here.

     

    Alright, do you have an account that is set in Swiss/German? If so, sign into the MAS with that, and the language should change.
