WHat language is used is controlled by the system language priority (System Preferences > Language and Text > Re-order list). You can't set it independently of the system preference right now unless you use an alternate launcher like Language Switcher:

That's a bit desapointed, but at least the LanguageSwitcher soft is easy to use... Thanks at lot for fast reply!

I'd strongly recommend enabling such an option soon.

I found that many of the translations for VCS commands like commit, push, pull etc. only serve to confuse people. Therefore I like to have my VCS software interface in English, even though I don't want to have all my system in English.

As this shouldn't be that difficult to implement I would also rather not install some additional software to work around this deficiency.

So far I found SourceTree to be one of the best graphical git clients for windows. Keep up the good work - and make the interface language variable, please :-)

I agree with thpfaff.

I also agree with thpfaff. Translations other than english are really awful, the tool is nearly unusable.

This is quite ridiculous. Expecially for as good a project as this. I'm going back to 1.3 because I can't find any workaround working for windows, and the italian translation is so awful I can't even find merge function... and this after messing around language settings for a while, that will surely give some frustrating problems later

This was so easy! Thanks a lot!

Thank you! I was getting crazy with the "Zweig" (=Branch) and "Zusammenführen" (=Merge). I mean who needs git in a different language than english? All these action names are made-up terms so a translation is like translating "Sourcetree" to "Quellbaum"

Who's the hell this idea. It's drive me crazy, the newest version still not have language option. It's all depend on windows language.

This is the most stupid feature I've seen : why on earth do you depend on system language preference ? You can be french on windows but just have commit in english.

Worst of all even when setting windows to english as default doesn't make sourcetree switch to english sad

Tools>Options and you find Language field in general tab.

Best regards
