Can I change the language from English to Spanish? Thanks for any input.

I am not aware of any options to change the language from English into any other language.

Not for menus, etc. You can read Spanish books; get them here:

However if you try to use TTS, it will pronounce the words as if they were English.

While famiarizing myself with the controls on my new Kindle, I accidentally changed the language to Italian. How do I change it back to English.

You can change the language on the new Basic Kindle ($79). I'm not sure about the Touch. You'll have to read the product page.

Gene, from the user's manual, Chapter 4:

Customizing your Kindle settings
To go to the Settings page, select Settings from the Home screen menu. Use the Next page and Previous Page buttons to view all the options. The available settings are:

...

Device Language: Shows the current language for menus, alerts, and dialog boxes, and allows you to change to a different language.

Hi, which version of the software has this feature? I have a Kindle 3rd generation and I just downloaded firmware version 3.3.
And I can't change the language.

Thanks

It's the $79 basic one that has the option to change languages. As far as I can tell, it's the only one.

I don't think that you can change the K3 into Spanish, but you can buy a Spanish dictionary from the Kindle store and change it to be the default dictionary. Also, here is a link to the Kindle Spanish help section:

You can get a copy of the User's Manual here: http://kindle.s3.amazonaws.com/Kindle%20User%27s%20Guide%2C%205th%20Edition_Spanish.pdf

Saludos!

Hi, I did the same but Portuguese, can anyone help to get back to english?

google translator (google - language tools) works well - hit your menu button then look for the one that's the closest to settings as far as translation goes and click it, then go to page two (it's always on page to of that choice) and find the one that translates as language

sorry, but for the others, I knew a bit of the language so browsing the help files wasn't too hard, and I could easily find the choices, but I know no portuguese

1. Press Menu button.
2. Select settings (9th opption in the menu).
3. press the "next page" bar on the side of the Kindle two times.
4. the second option is "Device Language" press enter to select desired language.

this is a nightmare. I think it is completely impossible to change the language on a Kindle touch. I have an English version and need to put an Italian dictionary on it. I believe it just cannot be done, yet it was possible on the older or cheaper versions??? What were they thinking???!!!

the new kindle touches (wifi and 3G/wifi) that were released to the other kindle stores ( amazon.es , amazon.it, amazon.co.uk , amazon.fr and amazon.de ) have the languague options - maybe an update will give that to the first kindle touches that were released and maybe not.
