I'm sick of nVidia drivers installing Turkish control panel because my regional settings are set to Turkish. Yeah I speak Turkish, but the translation is terrible. It was translated by a translator who doesn't know anything about the graphics jargon. :thumbdwn:

I want to use the English control panel. How can I change the language, or how can I stop the driver from installing any language other than English?

i have the same problem, but with different language

go to windows/system32, look for files that start with nv, and look by description and delete everything that says turkish recource file.

Install the English only drivers and not the International version?

ok, who can submit bugs to nvidia?

this has to STOP!

why is the English driver installing Polish files !!

ok, i install this driver

97.44_forceware_winxp_english.exe

this been going on since the first release with new control panel, and it has to stop, i have to delete around 5-7 files from system32 folder each time to get the control panel in english.

look at the screenshot

I have Polish enabled for non-unicode programs, I have few games and programs from Poland, i need that enabled to show Polish Characters correctly.

someone please report this to NVIDIA, there is no reason for English driver to include Polish language drivers.

Yeah, you've got the same problem. I bet nVidia driver guys think they are helping us by shoving translated control panels down our throats, but graphics terms should not be translated. "Overlay settings" becomes "Üst Görüntü Ayarları" in Turkish, which is Turkish alright, but doesn't mean anything.

point is when you download an English driver, it supposed to be English, end of the story.

just go to system32 folder find the nv files that are Turkish and delete them.

I also hate translated stuff from bottom of my heart (mainly because its usually translated like total crap and because i prefer all programs in english and not everything mixed up). Especially if there is NO WAY of changing that without actually hacking the files...

Hey nekrosoft13, I'm having trouble finding out which files are translated. I found 2 files that had TR ending and that's it. You say you delete 5-7 files. What are they?

don't look by the filename, i haven't checked anyother language, file names might be different.

either look for description example (Turkish recource file) or right click go to properties, version, and click on language,

if it says English (United States) leave it, if it says Turkish delete it

These were the Dutch library files in my system32 map;

nvwsrr.dll
nvvitvsr.dll
nvmoblsr.dll
nvmccssr.dll
nvmccsrs.dll
nvgamesr.dll
nvdispsr.dll

I've deleted these and now the CP is English. :)

Oh and please Nvidia, go look for some more commonly translators. Seriously, people need a dictionary
to understand the CP in their own language. :) And even with the dictionary, it's difficult.
You can always contact me if you need a good Dutch translator. :)

good to know that there are more people with the same complain

I still don't understand why are they forcing other languages. When you install something that says English, it supposed to be English.

I understand, if you install international driver, that would be OK

Thanks guys, I'm finally getting rid of those files once and for all. But I wonder, if English drivers install international files, why is there an international driver separately available? What difference does it have?
