Can I change language from Swedish to English in my QGIS Pisa?

I don't remember even choosing languages when I installed it.

If you go to Inställningar > Alternativ... > Lokalisering, you can change the locale:

it's also possible to specify the language at the command line when you launch QGIS, e.g. for English and French,

qgis --lang en
qgis --lang fr

This can also be useful if you changed to a language you can't read by mistake (or out of curiosity) and need to be able to find your settings again ;-)


Settings --> Options --> Locale

There you can select any locale that QGIS supports. The standard behaviour is to use the system default, so I am guessing you are using a Swedish Windows(?).
