I want my English version of SU back!

I just updated SU and now I have the German version again. That sucks. I use the English version since version 2.0 and two years ago I accidentally installed the German version and now there seems no way to going back to English. Or is it?

Any other professional app I know allows to switch language, in most cases even during runtime.

(I found a hack, but that’s kind of patchy: I deleted the German language packages from the app, so it goes for default. But: really?)

Wonderful idea. But I don’t have an “Apps tab”… :frowning:

(That would have been too easy, wouldn’t it?)

available with macOS v10.15 ‘Catalina’ and higher.

I don’t know why my post appears in several topics, but hey! I found help!
BIG THANKS to MikeWayzovski!!

Close Sketchup,
Open Terminal, type:

defaults write com.sketchup.SketchUp.2021 AppleLanguages '("de")'

hit enter.

to change back, type:

defaults write com.sketchup.SketchUp.2021 AppleLanguages '("en-US")'

Use at own risk… :smiley:

if fiddling on the command line is to cryptic, you may want use the free ‘Language Switcher’ app (signed, x64) for doing the same with a GUI instead. Drag’nDrop SketchUp (or whatever else) on the app and check the option “Dauerhaft” (= permanent) if you wanna keep it beyond the session.
