    Hi guys, my mac is for two people to use and two separate languages. When changing languages in system preferences to chinese, not everything will be in chinese, eg. applications, etc.

    Would I need to make two partitions and install two different language versions of OS X? Or buy a Chinese version of OSX?

    Hi,
    There's a little app called "Language" switcher, which might do the trick. It allows to switch the application between languages on the fly if they installed are multilingual. But if you need the Finder in chinese, you probably have to install two different OS X.

    have a nice day
