Reverting localized Adobe CS5 interface to English

If you’re a Adobe CS5 user and you have a localized language installation but you want to revert to English as the interface language, either temporarily or permanently, follow this tip:

First, completely exit your Adobe product, then follow the instructions for your OS below.

Windows:

In explorer, open C:Program Files (or Program Files (x86))

then AdobeAdobe Photoshop CS5Locales

You should have one (or more) locale folders, such as en_GB or es_MX. Open it, then Support Files within it.

You should see a tw10248.dat file (either with or without the extension, depending on your settings.) Either rename or delete this file, depending on if you want to revert to your localized language installation again in the future, and restart your Adobe product.

Mac:

In Finder’s search box, type tw10428. The file tw10428.dat should appear (either with or without the extension, depending on your settings.). Either rename or delete this file, depending on if you want to revert to your localized language installation again in the future, and restart your Adobe product. (To rename, select File > Get Info)

The interface language should now appear in English.
