How can I switch SourceTree back to english?

I have installed SourceTree 1.4.0. today and suddenly everything is in German. Yes I have a German installation of Windows but all my developer stuff is in english and I'd like to have Sourcetree in english as well.

I cannot remember which version it was but yes that was fixed in the meantime. In the Menu go to

Tools -> Options

In the window that opens choose the "General" tab, down in the "misc" section (pretty much in the middle of the window) you find the language settings. smile

Thank you for your effort, Peter. I appreciate that. However, I don't want any questionable workaround. This is something which needs to be addressed either as option in the SourcTree app itself or at least in the setup.

I just got an email which tells me I should do something here but none of the suggested actions fits here. So I just bump it. I haven't yet got an answer from the support anyway.

This starts to get annoying! It's the second time I get this mail:

Please consider one of the following actions:

  • Edit your question for clarification
  • Add a comment for more information from an existing answer
  • Close the question, if it's invalid

Please be a good Answers citizen!

Well I'd like to but I still haven't got an answer!
I don't want to receive any further emails of this kind!

It would be nice if any of the developers comes by and tells us this feature is on the backlog. :(

is there still no solution to this? this was the first google search result!
