How to change language setting of R on Windows

I read FAQ on CRAN, but it was a bit confusing to a novice like me.  So here is the screenshot.  First, go to the "etc" folder under R program files folder.  Then locate Rconsole file. Find the line "language =  ", change it to "language = en"  if you want to run R in English. Save the file. Windows (I am using Windows 7.)  told me that I have no permission to change the Rconsole file and that I should contact the administrator. Thank you. !  I am the administrator/user.  I had to right click on the Rconsole file icon, select Property and grant a permission to modify the file to myself, the user.

Thank you so much! Finally my R speaks English!

Posted by: Liuba | January 17, 2013 09:32 PM

Thank you (o^-^o)!
My system language was in Japanese (b/c I buy ebooks from Japan and need to read them) so the language of R is automatically Japanese, which creates an inconvenience as I need to work with English speaking people.
