What regional settings do you have?

Take a look at this nice youtube video: How to change gvSIG language

If you have trouble accessing the preferences (I can imagine that if your interface is in Russian) you can just edit your $HOME/gvSIG/andami-config.xml where you have to change the value of the attribute "locale-language" to "en" for example. See screenshot:

enter image description here


There is a command line option that you can use to start gvSIG in the language that you want:


In linux to launch gvSIG in English you can use

./gvSIG.sh -language=en
