    You choose a language when you install the system.
    You can also choose a language in System preferences in the international pref.

    Yeah, OS X is multilingual out of the box and is flexible enough to even allow each user to use the system in a different language.

    Just change the setting in system prefs, log out and back in, and you'll have the new language.

    Most apps also support different languages (some freeware doesn't though...) except for Microsoft Office - figures!

    Lots of other professional software is unilingual too, like all Adobe programs, Macromedia, I think Quark also, though am not sure.
    MS Office at least costs the same, whatever language you buy, while Adobe software is more expensive when you buy a non-english version.

    Not to take off the blame from Microsoft, but many other big companies work that way.

    It's interesting that the cheaper the software is, the higher are the chances that it comes multilingual... :cool:

    I just downloaed the turkish lang support from apple's turkish website, and installed it, but the finder menu and all are still in english

    I think what he meant to say was change the language fully... from like popup error boxes to finder menu etc.

    That's exactly what happens when you select the language in the international preference:

    All dialogue boxes, menu etc. appear in the new language you selected.

    Did you log out and back in again? It doesn't show up until you do that otherwise...

    Hmmm, just tried it here and it didn't work either, but I didn't download the language pack, I just added it from the 'edit languages' menu.

    Here a thought: Did you ever run monolingual or delocalizer on your system to free up space?

    No: Monolingual is a utility that deletes additional language files to help save room. If you run it, you'll have to reinstall os x to get back the old language files.

    Delocalizer is the same.

    I'd call apple then. You still have 90 days of free telephone support - have them sort this out for you.
