I use GRASS plugin inside QGIS on Japanese version of windows 7 x64. As I start GRASS tools, all the content show in English but when I try to execute a tool, tools option displays in Japanese language. I want to change all the tool options in to English and have no clues how to solve it.

You can try to set the language in both QGIS and GRASS.

For QGIS: Settings > Options > Locale > place checkmark beside Override system local.

For GRASS: Launch the GRASS GUI > Settings > Preferences > Appearance > Language Settings.

  • Thanks. I already did that but doesn`t help. My QGIS envirnoment already in English. If you see my screenshot, only the options appear in Japanese other all the things in English

  • @Kava Than maybe you have to change the language at the Operating System level if possible.
