GIMP in Japanese

Brendan Ragan
Hi Folks,

Avid GIMP user for years, but limited technical expertise. I recently
upgraded to OS Sierra on my Macbook, and now my GIMP is in Japanese. I
can't figure it out! I've clicked around as much as I can in all the menus
to no avail. I uninstalled and reinstalled, still in japanese. I also
watched about every single outdated youtube tutorial I could find, and none
helped. English is listed as my primary language in System Preferences >
Language and Region.

Thanks for the advice!

B

2. In the newly opened Preferences dialog, go to the second page from top.

3. Select UI language in the topmost drop-down list.

Also, please read this and let us know if you can submit more
information to help us investigate this:

A test build (dmg for OSX) for this issue is now available at:
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=770708#c37
Testing and reporting where it fixes your problem would be appreciated!
Thanks. :-)

Sierra replaces or overwrites all of the .rc (config) files for GIMP.

Pull these files from a backup done before you upgraded or reloaded Sierra and
put them back in your Library folder, in the Application Support folder, GIMP
folder, 2.8

colorrc
controllerrc
dockrc
menurc
parasiterc
profilerc
sessionrc
tags.xml
templaterc
themerc
toolrc
unitrc

Typical Apple engineering stupidity (don't get me started).

This isn't what we have identified as the issue - and it is actually
solved in GIMP 2.8.20 and up.

It's actually possible to reproduce the same behavior on other platforms
as well, the LANGUAGE values needed to trigger the gettext bug were
simply uncommon there.
