FileMaker 14 uses the language settings set in your system preferences, not anything set inside of filemaker.
If you add English to your languages in system prefs, you can use Command + Space and Command+option+space to toggle between languages. Although you will need to toggle to English before you start filemaker I believe.
Remove the spanish .lproj folder from the resources folder. You'd have to go inside the FileMaker Pro.app package. Close FileMaker first and reopen it afterwards.
I had English as a secondary language already...
It didn't work at all
Once you remove the sp.lproj folder form de resources folder inside the FM app it won't open any file
re-install, launch, set the prefs, QUIT, then open package , resssource, delete all .proj folder except english
it sure does work, I do it on all my install, can't program in french
Of course we would need a cleaner way do to it
a freeware called Language Switcher TJ-HD Software - Language Switcher will help you doing that without altering anything in FM or OS X. Can tell you it works fine. All you need to do is install the software and start FM from within selecting the needed language .
It did work fine
Your suggestion is excelent...
It's the simplest way to solve the problem
I use simple apps I created with Automator to launch FileMaker Pro Advanced in a given language. They contain a simple shell script:
defaults write $(mdls -name kMDItemCFBundleIdentifier -raw /Applications/FileMaker\ Pro\ 14\ Advanced/FileMaker\ Pro\ Advanced.app) AppleLanguages "(en)"
open -a /Applications/FileMaker\ Pro\ 14\ Advanced/FileMaker\ Pro\ Advanced.app
You then just need to change the language code from (en) to (de), (es), (fr) or whatever language you want (provided, of course, that you included it when installing FileMaker Pro Advanced).
Thanks CamelCase, that's brillant
