Hi Ruth,

From the Home screen, tap the three horizontal line icon on the upper right.
Tap Settings (the second choice from the bottom).
Tap Device Options (the second choice from the bottom).
Tap Language And Dictionaries (the last choice).
Tap Language (the first choice).
Tap English (the third choice).

The above worked for whatever my wife picked which was Chinese or Japenese.

I have a Kindle Fire that has been working just fine. All of a sudden the apps and all instructions at the top of the screen are in a different language. (Chinese of Japanese? - not sure). I tried to fix it at the language setting but it is already set to English - please help.

Mine is the same. I have tried everything but cannot fix it.
