The menus and default dictionary on Kindle can be changed to support U.S. English, UK English, German, French, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese and Italian languages, only on Kindle 4th Generation. The rest of the Kindle do not support this feature at this moment.
To change the language on Kindle 4th Gen:
1. Select Settings from the Home screen Menu. 2. Navigate to page 2 of the Settings page and select to "Set" next to the Device Language heading. 3. Press the 5-way controller to select. 4. You will then be prompted to select a language on the device. 5. Once selected click "OK" to confirm the change.
To complete the change the device will restart. Any content on Kindle will remain on the Home screen. If you have a password associated with your Kindle you will be prompted to enter it once the device restarts.
I have a Kindle Touch. May i add a spanish dictionary? I actually added, but it´s on English dictionary section, and if i try to use it, my kindle says there´s no dictonary for that language. I´ve been reading many forums and there´s many people who say they can do it in a KT, and others say it´s impossible. I speak spanish and it´s so important for me to use a spanish dictionary!
What you are saying is that they should, and I totally agree. But in as much as you do not and cannot see what I am talking about, I stand by my statement. This one does not have English and Amazon is getting it back. I have requested a RMA and it will be going back. No need to reply.
No, what I'm saying is it isn't possible. It's built into the firmware - there's no malfunction that could cause it not to be there. You just need to select it in the Settings, which may be tricky since obviously you're looking at non-English menus, but if you can find the setting you CAN select English.
To put a Kindle Touch into English from German: 1 - Home button (four bars below the screen) 2 - Menu (upper-right corner) 3 - Einstellungen (second from bottom) 4 - Gerateoptionen 5 - Sprache und Worterbucher 6 - Sprache 7 - English (UK or US, your preference) 8 - OK 9 - OK Wait for it to restart and it will be in English
