Setting the Language

You can modify the user interface text for the current language. To bring up the Lanuage window, go to the File menu and click on Language.

Note: The translation is machine-translated (by Google) into 64 languages. Often, these translations are not very good, but we are working to improve them. If you want, you can edit the translation for your language to fix the more annoying and obvious translation errors and share this translation data with other users with the export function.

Note: In the language screen, you can change the language by selecting a different language from the drop down list, then restarting ControlMyNikon for the changes to take effect.

Translatable Items
