I installed localized version of Photoshop CS6. Problem is, that all online tutorials are based on English version. So I want to change my UI language.

1 Answer 1


Go to where you installed Photoshop and find your locale folder, eg.

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS6\Locales\pl_PL\Support Files

find file tw10428.datand change it's extension from tw10428.dat to tw10428.dak. Restart Photoshop, your menus are in English.

  • Menus yes, but unfortunately keyboard shortcuts are the way they were. I didn't find an easy solution for this.

  • The fix didn't work for me, running CS6 Swedish version. Can't find anyone else having the same problem. Is there another fix?

  • This also works for a Photoshop CC on macOS with german localization, only that tw10428.dat is located at /Applications/Adobe Photoshop CC/Locales/de_DE/Support Files/tw10428.dat. Nov 6, 2022 at 17:03
