I live in Japan and am planning to order photoshop elements for my son. If I buy the local Japanese version will I be able to change the language to English? My son doesn't read Japanese well enough (yet!)
I am the Internationalization Program Manager for Adobe Photoshop Elements.
You will be able to change the language to any version, though not frequently. The right process to change is
1. Uninstall the application, and while uninstallation do not deactivate the product.
2. Download the Photoshop Elements build from Adobe.com
3. Install it in the language of your choice.
