Install it additionally, InDesign chooses to work with the language of the running OS if available.
After installing the Norwegian version you have to change the language of your OS to norwegian.
Thank you for your answer, @Willi Adelberger! Much appreciated!!
From your answer, though, I sort of interperet that I have to re-install my OS?
That seems a bit far out
My OS is in Norwegian.
By default (I guess).
I need it like that to make sure that the letters "Æ/æ", "Ø/ø" and "Å/å" which are frequently used in my native language are implemented in my system. I use them frequently in my work.
After installing PScc and ILcc I went and changed some file extension from ".???" to ".bak".
It solved the (language) problem with those programs.
ID is, however, still in Norwegian, but as ID is my main tool for publishing 'mass text' material, and all my work experience with ID (and all other Adobe and Quark programs) has been with an english UI, I really want to maintain this as work language.
So even though I've got most of the (hot key (?)) commands "in my fingers" (Norwegian 'saying'), it's really impractical to view the menus and deal with the general UI terminology in Norwegian. Call it a distraction if you will.
I'd expect there is an easy fix (as with the other programs)? I signed up for quite the extensive payment plan for this, and so far, trying to figure this out has cost me quite a few bill-able working hours.
Thanks again for your answer!
OS language is normally to switch in system preferences. Letters have nothing to do with the language of your OS.
- You can switch your keyboard layaout to any language different to your OS.
- You can access these extended characters on the mac with alt, shift and another letter from any other keyboard layout.
- ON Windows you can do the same with holding the alt key and typing the numeric code in 4 digits on the numeric part starting with 0 and 3 digits.
- The program language has NO influence to the keyboard.
Ok, I have reconsidered my answers after reading several times your questions:
- You want to run InDesign Englsh, but
- Your OS should remain Norwegian
That means, InDesign has only to be installed in other languages than in Norwegian, but at least in English. That does mean indeed that you have to uninstall your Norwegian version.
I would recommend that you save the Norwegian Keyboard Shortcuts of InDesign before uninstalling the program, so you can load them later into the English version, as it would make sense, if you use a Norwegian keyboard.
