Hi everybody, at long last I have been able to switch to Imac. I live in a Spanish speaking community although I am English . Sadly my Spanish is poor and had no alternative to buy a mac with Spanish language system. I am going through the guides in English (on the net) to get a rough idea of what to do . Is there a way to change the language system in Mac (similar to regions in windows) I am sure I can pick up a lot as I go along but would appreciate any info on this. Recently bought a vista and have been with windows for a long time but cannot take any more

Many thanks
QUOTE Thanks

Does your Mac have the Western Spanish keyboard? If so, you could switch the Mac OS X language preference to English and just tape pieces of paper on the keys that are different from the current keyboard layout.
