HI there carol. My name is ***** ***** you tell me please what version of OSX you have? For example, is it El Capitan, or an older version? The instructions vary slightly from one version of OSX to another.

Expert:  GeekGal replied 1 year ago.

If it El Capitan or any version beyond 10.5.8, the following instructions will work:

To change the language:

  1. Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Language & Text, and then click Language.

      • Drag the language you most want to see in menus and dialogs to the top of the list, and choose an option for sorted lists.

            These language settings may also change the language used in other parts of an application or in the text you see on some websites.

            If it is a version prior to 10.6 the instructions, are similar, but you would go to INTERNATIONAL rather than LANGUAGE and TEXT. You can click here for an illustrated tutorial for earlier versions.
