Change language to English in Photoshop CC (Mac)

September 5, 2019


When downloading from Adobe Creative Cloud, Photoshop sets my local language (Norwegian) as default. Which means it is very hard to follow e.g. tutorials online. I first close Photoshop completely Then right click (or ctrl-click) the dock icon and choose “show in finder” Go to the folder “Locales” (and in my case “nb_NO”) “Support files” and rename the file ending with “.dat” so that it ends with “.bak” instead Photoshop is now in English!

    Worked fine. Cool. I changed it from German to English, because it makes sense to me that when I want to talk to other people it'll be best in English.
