I've downloaded english Maya 2013 but after I've installed it and ran it, it is in Chinese instead.
I've tried re-installing several times and it iremained in Chinese language.
May I know how to change the language of my Maya 2013 programme?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Did you download this legally from Autodesk? And is your Windows a Chinese version?
Yes, I believe I did. I'm a student and registered under student/educator to download it for non-commercial use.
My windows is in English as well.
*Also, when downloading there was only 1 option for language: English. So it baffles me even further because, Chinese was not in the list in the first place and I've no idea how it got there.
*Also, I tried using the "Install now" option but a "Communication Failure" message keep appearing. So, I used the "download" option to install instead and that led to the problem I'm facing right now (Language).
The Maya 2013 download / installer contains the English, Japanese, and Chinese language options.
