Change the MATLAB Desktop Language
MathWorks® offers MATLAB® translated into Japanese, Korean, and Chinese. If the locale or display language setting on your system is set to Japanese, Korean, or Chinese, you can choose whether to display text in the MATLAB desktop in your system language or in English. Desktop items (such as dialog boxes, button names, and menu items) and error and warning messages appear in the language that you select.
To change the desktop language:
Make sure that the locale or display language setting on your system is set to Japanese, Korean, or Chinese. In some cases, you might have to install a language pack or fonts for the language that you want to select. Each platform uses different settings and options to specify locale and display language. For more information, see Set Locale and Display Language.
On the Home tab, in the Environment section, click Preferences and select MATLAB > General.
Select an option for the Desktop language preference. If the Desktop language preference is not visible, then this preference is not supported for your current system configuration.
Restart MATLAB for the preference change to take effect.
Most desktop elements and apps use the language specified by the Desktop language preference. However, system dialog boxes, such as file selectors or color pickers, use the operating system display language.
