Question Appleworks

I am trying to switch my copy of appleworks to present itself in Japanese. The fellow at the shop assured me it could, like OSX, operate in several languages. I am not talking about just putting in Japanese text but also having all the dropdown menus etc in Japanese. While I am trying to get this to work I notice there is an Appleworks update available so I downloaded the updater and tried to install it. I get the message that "the default location required for this installation could not be found. This installation will be cancelled." Eh? What is going on. I have my appleworks in the applications menu. Where else should it be?

I work with the English version ( of course ), and had the same thing happen to me when I tried to update, I closed all applications, made a complete shutdown, then restarted the machine and zaped the P Ram, then loaded the update while all applications where not running, and everything went well.
You might want to try this.


 Mac Pro 3.1 Quad Core" 2.8 ( OS 10.6.8 ) - Power Macintosh G5 2.0 DP (PCI-X) ( OS 10.5.8 )  iPhone 4 - 32GB ( iSO 5.1.1 )  AirPort Extreme (Gigabit) WiFi

To get Japanese menus etc, you need to set your language preferences in OSX to use Japanese.

Go to:
Apple Menu: System Preferences: International
Click language, and drag the language you want to the top of the list. Applications will select languages based on whether they support them, starting at the top and continuing until one they support is listed.

For example, move Japanese to the top and English to the second. If Japanese language is supported, everything in that application will be Japanese. If not, it will be in English (and so on).

Answer found in about 5 seconds by launching Apple Help and typing "change language". Could have saved yourself some time if you looked there first.

Gordguide... The OS is already in Japanese. Yet Appleworks stubbornly refused to switch. I would click get info and then select the languages flippy triangle and the box would be empty. I tried to drag in Japanese from the International menu and it was continually rejected. In anycase the wife got the solution to that problem last night. I am not sure what she did as I was asleep but it was working this morning.

Now I will have to try UCGrafix's suggestion for getting the update loaded.

Jordan, I love all things skullish. Big fan on Nightmare!
