    Apologies if this is in the wrong section, I couldn't find a specific "iTunes" forum - maybe there isn't one.

    I think around the same time as macOS Sierra was released, iTunes received an update that changed certain text within the app. I am from the UK, however previous to the update I had "Movies", "TV Shows", "Seasons" (i.e. more suited to US standard) etc. but now I have "Films", "TV Programmes" and "Series" (more suited to UK standards).

    Is there a way to change back so that I have the more US version? I just prefer it over the UK one :p

    Thanks in advance :)

    You're alright, iTunes questions belong here. ;)

    First, add US English under preferred languages in Language & Region in System Preferences (don't delete the UK English though).

    Then copy and paste this command into Terminal (It might hang for a bit, btw. At least mine did when I tried.):

    defaults write -app iTunes AppleLanguages -array en-US
    And it should take effect after restarting iTunes.
