This question is included in knowledge base, please check it and sticky threads next time before posting.

PART #0 - PROLOG: There is no English in the installer! What to do?

  • Choose any language and continue installing.
  • When the game is already installed, proceed reading next parts in this post.

PART #1: How to change Launcher's language:
  • Run regedit.exe (Windows+R and type regedit)
  • Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Riot Games\League of Legends
  • Click on "League of Legends" folder
  • On the right side click on "Language" and modify it to one of following:
    • If you desire English, set this to en
    • If you desire French, set this to fr
    • If you desire German, set this to de
    • If you desire Spanish, set this to es
    It should just look like this:
    Code:
    en
  • Press OK and close regedit.
  • Run launcher

PART #2: How to change PvP.net's (lobby) language:
  • Go to \Air\ folder in League of Legends' folder.
  • Open locale.properties file with notepad. In case it does not exist - create it. MAKE SURE THE EXTENSION IS .properties , NOT .txt
    • If you desire English, set this to locale=en_GB
    • If you desire French, set this to locale=fr_FR
    • If you desire German, set this to locale=de_DE
    • If you desire Spanish, set this to locale=es_ES
    It should just look like this:
    Code:
    locale=en_GB
  • Save and close the file.

PART #3: How to change League of Legends' (in-game) language:
  • Go to \Game\DATA\CFG\ folder in League of Legends' folder.
  • Open game.cfg file with notepad. In case it does not exist - create it. MAKE SURE THE EXTENSION IS .cfg , NOT .txt
  • Under [General] there should be line like this:
    Code:
    LanguageLocaleRegion=en_GB
    • If you desire English, set this to LanguageLocaleRegion=en_GB
    • If you desire French, set this to LanguageLocaleRegion=fr_FR
    • If you desire German, set this to LanguageLocaleRegion=de_DE
    • If you desire Spanish, set this to LanguageLocaleRegion=es_ES
    Afterall, it should look like:
    Code:
    [General]
    LanguageLocaleRegion=en_GB
    (...)
    Keep in mind (...) means that there are other options, because it's game configuration file. If there is not anything else - once You change some settings in game, they will appear there automatically.
  • Save and close the file.

This is it - congratulations, You have changed your game's language.

Just a heads up to old thread:
My last answer is from 2011, where the game was build differently. In RADS system You can change language by editing \RADS\system\locale.cfg with notepad or sort.
Examples:
Quote:
locale = en_GB
Quote:
locale = pl_PL
Quote:
locale = ko_KR
