If a Picasa Web Album is showing menus in another language and you want English, look in the URL (in the address bar).
If you don't see .com then remove the .whatever and replace with .com

such as this:
http://picasaweb.google.fr/YOURusername      
change to this:
http://picasaweb.google.com/YOURusername

Yes, this is very useful. But if the country you're in at the moment of installation has a language that you don't understand, you get funny things.
Such as:
- when you install Picasa3 you have to accept the Terms of Use that you don't understand a word of
- you have two pop-up windows coming at the moment it's installed and you have to answer something before you can get on with the language-settings

Mind you, I have English set in google general settings, in gmail, in docs, in reader, in calendar and in picasaweb... so why do I have to download something that is absolutely not English? Couldn't a user's language settings in google override every other language setting?

Thank you.

Hi all:
 When I updated to Picasa 3,6, the language option is greyed out and I'm unable to change from English(US).
So can I download a language pack for Picasa? My Windows is in French.

Dear Onion Zwiebel:
   Many thanks; Just solved my language problem by following your very helpful instructions. I am now back into English. I do wonder however, why Hebrew ever intruded into my Picasa opening pages.
Thanks again,
Herb R
