    You’re basically saying uninstall and reinstall the program. It’s not a way to change the language of the program. Like I’m dumb or something…

      Removing file winrar.lng on directory (C:)\Program Files\WinRAR is the trick.

      if it’s not work, you can try another alternative by uninstall and reinstall the program.
