Hello, I'm trying to change the language in After Effects cs5 from German to English on a mac (10.8.5 osx). I've tried going to package contents/resources/AMTlanguages and changing de_DE to en_US but when I restart it and enter the serial number it says its incorrect for this product. I was able to change photoshop without any trouble but does anyone know if AE has a language specific license? help please and thank you!
Any standalone retail package is language specific as dictated by the serial number and installer. Lucky for you, you can easily set AE to English by creating a file called ae_force_english.txt in your user profile's documents folder. the file doesn't need to contain anything, it just needs to be present and named properly.
is that for PC? I can't figure it out on a mac.
