My whole system is in my preferred language, except Xcode. There's no use Googling "Xcode change language" or even "xcode change language -iphone -IDL -parse -Python -app -localization -internationalization -swift -objective-c", it only turns up developer questions.

How do I change the UI language for Xcode?

  • XCode might not be available for every language. What is your prefered language ? (Is it somehow exotic ?) Commented Jul 27, 2015 at 12:22
  • @MatthieuRiegler I don't know, is Swedish exotic? :) Doesn't anyone have their Xcode in another language? Spanish, French, Japanese?

  • Look at the entry for Xcode in the app store. It says English only. Commented Jul 27, 2015 at 12:24
  • It's only English. Look inside /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Resources/. There's only English.lproj directory. Commented Jul 27, 2015 at 12:50

As Tom pointed out, XCode is only available in english on the Mac App Store !

If you look on other apps you'll see the available localizations for example on Apple's Number.
