Changing Your Mac’s Language
You might have thought that you would need to buy a special version of Mac OS X if you want your Mac’s interface to use a language other than English. Actually, Mac OS X ships with the capability to display menus, dialog boxes, and other interface elements in a couple dozen languages, including those with non-Roman alphabets.
Choose Apple menu, System Preferences.
Click the Language & Text button to see your choices.
Click the Language button.
Click and drag your preferred language to the top of the pick list.
