way I have installed mavericks

programs are not in the language of my system !


but in the language of my location , and often a new app that I installed.

So now I have no control over my own language of my system more.

I've tried everything, I also deleted this language, yet he remains present.


anyone the same problem and maybe a solution !?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7), Safari can't find server?

    What languages are you talking about?


    The language of your system is controlled by what is at the top of the list in system preferences/language & text/language


    Could  you use the camera icon to post a screenshot here of the problem you are seeing?

    Hi Tom Gewecke


    i'm a Dutchman, but living just across the border germany.

    everything is here in Dutch on all computers, only 10.9 is that I installed a new program, then in German.

    My apple store is still in Netherlands and not in germany.(which I buy)

    the picture you can see that my acrobat in German is.

    even when I do an update of a program, there is a chance that it is in german.

    You need to check with Adobe or its forums.  Apple apps have all langauges included, but for Adobe stuff you might have to get a separate version for Dutch.

    I use a mac since 1998 and I know quite a lot of mac system

    adobe installer that I bought when it was in Nedelands and is still, only when I installed it on this computer, he is German, I install it on another computer, then he is just in Dutch.


    ra ra why?


    it is a big problem, and I think only people who changed the system language of the computer should change ,shall find this bug in 10.9.

    maybe I'm the first one who discovered

    A bug which only affects the localization of Adobe Acrobat when running in 10.9 would indeed be strange one. 


    Have you tried switching the language with




    There may be other ways to fix it by going inside the app and renaming .lproj folders...

  • peng40 Level 1 (0 points)

    which is a nice program, only the German programs are not in.

    Only little snitch I see, but I can not change !

    it is in English and German at the same time ,see photo.


    that's weird, some programs simply change german

    10.9 in June, I had the 2nd fair system partition with the same problem, but I thought if I can buy it latrer the bug will be gone.

    Thanks for your time, if I do find the solution, I'll let you know.
