    Hi guys,

    A friend of mine just got back from New York and he got me as a surprise a copy of iLife 11. The thing is that it's an english copy and I have a french version of iLife 09 installed.

    Will it cause trouble if I install the english version over the old french one ?

    Thanks for any advice.

    iLife is multi lingual and the version your friend bought will install iLife in French, as French is your system language.

    iLife will run as whatever your system language is set to (i.e. whatever Finder uses - as per settings in System Preferences).

    If you want an app to run in a different language, there's a small app (free) called Language Switcher that lets you specify different default languages for different apps.

    Thank you very much for the replies.

    Everything worked well. I did not know that it was a multi-language package.

    Now I'm enjoying it in all it's french glory :)

    Thanks again.
