How do you change to a different language? Mine is in Chinese.

you didn't tell us which kindle, but somewhere in here is your answer:

compiled response to all wrong language queries

if it's the Touch, follow this:

You don't need to do the words, just count and this works for all languages

Home Page
7th listing
3rd listing
4th listing
1st listing
English or whatever you want

and the Touch will reboot


This will work (languages = German / French / Italian / Spanish / Portuguese) for the Basic:

1. Press Menu button.
2. Select settings (9th option in the menu) = Einstellungen / Parametres / Impostazioni / Configuracion / Configuracoes
3. press the "next page" bar on the side of the Kindle two times.
4. Select (may be second listing on the menu) - Geratesprachen / Langue du Peripherique / Imposta / Establecer / Estabelecer (possibly)
5. Einstellen / Definer / Lingua Dispotivo / Idioma del dispositivo / Idioma do dispositivo
6. OK

kindle will reboot



1. Tap the Home icon (House)
2. Tap the Menu icon (3 bars on upper right)
3. Tap the 2nd-to-last item on the menu (6th from the top if you have the offers, 5th from the top if you don't) = Settings
4. Tap the 4th item = Device Options
5. Tap the last (5th) item = Language and Dictionaries
6. Tap the 1st item = Language
7. English


All 2nd gen 7" Kindle Fires:

swipe down from the top middle
hit the plus sign
2nd from the bottom is Language and Keyboard, tap that
top choice is Language, tap that and select english
bottom is keyboard - check and make sure it's english

Do you mean your Kindle is set for Chinese, and you don't want it that way? Which model?
