Change the default language of an application with Alfred

July 12, 2019

I just finished my work on a new extension for the Alfred Powerpack.
This extension detects all available localizations for a specific application and let’s you choose one of them.

Then it changes the language of the application and restarts it.
It’s easy to use and could come in handy if you want to see another localizations of an application or if you don’t like the localizations in your language without changing your system’s default language.

Just download this extension, install it and it’s ready to use.


This extension is written in AppleScript and Unix.

If you experience any troubles with this, hit me on twitter.

If you don’t have the Alfred Powerpack or you don’t want to use Alfred for this task, here is the source code of the extension.
