I got Adobe Photoshop CS6 in german language, after i was working with Adobe Photoshop CS5 in ENGLISH. The reason for that was, that i had a lot of difficulties to work with an english version. But all of a sudden my GERMAN CS6 changed to ENGLISH: how can i return to the GERMAN VERSION of CS6???

Howdy Gunther,

Normally, what you are describing isn't possible. Each application has its own file which determines the language of the user interface. They have no overlap and are stored in very separate locations. Clearly, there is a little more going on here.

Now, for CS6, it's actually really easy to get all the language versions you want if you're using the Creative Cloud (make sure you switch to CS6 instead of CC, in this case, but the mechanics are the same). Simply download a new version of the application BUT first go under Preferences > Apps and choose the App Language to German, French, Russian, Chinese, whatever. Then, close the Creative Cloud application and relaunch it. Go to the Apps tab and you'll see that Photoshop has not been downloaded. Go ahead and re-download it. When you launch, you will launch in the last language you used BUT if you go to Preferences > Interface, at the bottom of the dialog, you will see a control named UI language. The dropdown will now contain the language you launched in (in your case, English) plus the language you just downloaded (German). Switch to German and relaunch the app. Jetzt haben Sie die Deutschversion! 8-)

If you are NOT using the Creative Cloud, the mechanics are the same, but you'll need to locate and replace your tw10428.dat file. It's supposed to be located under Photoshop > Locales > > Support Files. My guess is that you somehow deleted this file by accident, causing the app to "revert" to English (not really, but it looks that way). So check your trash or anywhere else on your hard drive. DO NOT use a tw10428.dat from another version of the product; bad things can happen! If you cannot find your dat file, reply to this thread and I'll see what I can do.

I hope this helps,
Viel Spaß und hoffentlich ist das hilfreich,
David

hallo david.

dank für ihre antwort:
- sie war nicht nur SCHNELL (super), sonderm auch sehr, sehr HILFREICH.
wie sie schon vermuteten, lag es am fehlenden 'tw10428.dat file'.
dieses konnte ich zwar nicht mehr aus dem papierkorb fischen, aber dank TIME MACHINE war es auf meinem update-laufwerk vorhanden, sodass die wiederherstellung der DEUTSCHEN version leicht zu bewerkstelligen war.

nochmals ganz, ganz, ganz herzlichen dank für ihre hilfe!!!!
(wenn sie einen unterstützer für ihre nächte gehaltserhöhung benötigen, lassen sie es mich bitte wissen)
mit freundlichen grüßen
