Photoshop: Ask language at installation

Please ask language at installation instead of taking the Windows language. It is so much trouble to uninstall and reinstall in the correct language. This is a renowned product you have a big development team, I don't understand how you are not able to integrate that simple question in your install process.

Marie Neige and Simar...
Elements does indeed already ask you for your language during the installation process.
Just uninstal and this time, look carefully for all the dialogs while reinstalling. I am using this regularly to get the English version even if I have the French OS and France as Region.

I agree with the process for Elements installation but if I am correct - it seems the suggestion is related to Creative cloud as an entity and not any perpetual/standalone product. Creative cloud desktop app simply picks the OS on which it is getting installed. Please correct me.

You are right... I was fooled because the post appears in the Elements category.

You can select  a different installation language using the Creative Cloud app. See if this helps: https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/change-install-language.html

Howdy Marie,

You are correct that the CC installer does default to the same language as the OS, but as Todd pointed out, you can override this very easily in the Preferences.  In fact, you can install multiple language versions of the same app and switch between them.  In Photoshop for instance, you'd install the new language, launch PS, go to Preferences > Interface and change the UI language.  On the next launch, the language will change.

Hope this helps -- if there's something that we're not understanding, please let us know!

Thanks,
David
