Windows live writer doesn’t have an option to change the default language where you’re living to other language in setting. When I download Live writer from Thailand, it gives me this url which is Thai version. I don’t see any option to select the language in download page.
During setup, I requested my friend to install it because setup is also in Thai language so I did not understand. After I installed, I see all the menus and setting are in Thai language.
So, I decided to look in Writer installation folder and then I found a file WindowsLive.Writer.Localization.resources.dll, under ‘th’ folder. What I did is that I moved the ‘th‘ folder to upper lever. I re-run the Live writer again and lt shows only in English.
To reset to English language in Live writer
- Go to c:\program files\Windows Live\Writer\
- Find the abbreviation of your language (‘th’ for Thai language)
- Move that folder to somewhere else (I prefer moving instead of deleting, at least you can recover it back).
- Run Windows Live Writer again.
You’ll see the Windows Live Writer in English language.
