I am setting up an iPad for a friend in France. She has a French address for her credit card but is English speaking and would like her iBooks and iTunes to give her only English options. Unfortunately as soon as I put her credit card details in, showing a French address, her app store, iTunes and iBook options are in French. Any help in switching this to English - short off getting a UK credit card would be appraciated.
go to settings, then choose international

PS: sorry for all i wrote in french as he his french (and me too)
j0yful. The iPad language in settings is already in English, so no problem there. It is in iTunes and iBooks that creates the problem. They don't have an apparent option to change the language - just base it on the country. I'm hoping that someone knows where the magic language key is hidden.
iPadOne. Merci pour votre suggestion, mais j'espérais une solution qu'était dans le iPad.

e for Ibook you should get a new one from English account … as we can’t enter in the ipad settings
im using a russian keyboard as my second one and nothing seems to be an issue with that.
Has nothing to do with the keyboard or the international settings. Just iTubes and iBooks. The question is, is it possible to change the language on iTunes/iBooks from the defaulted setting of French to English. It defaults to French because the person is using a French credit card and therefore must have her country listed as France - but she is English and wants to be able to download a selection of English books.
Just wondering if anyone solved this glitch. Just got a mini retina and want to use iBooks in the US..but can't as when I try and choose the us option I'm asked to fill in a us address! The French iBooks is UTTERLY USELESS. I LOOK FOR BOOKS ON FRENCH MILITARY HISTORY AND GET 7 hits....and half are about Italian history! I live in France but in 2014 this should NOT prevent me from searching us texts. It's
So unbelievably sad and ancient....we should be able to search alpha country and alpha language....as well as free books only!
Any feedback greatly appreciated. Thx David
Hi, David! Welcome to iPF!

With your French Apple ID you only can access the French App, iTunes and iBooks Store.
It's possible, however, to set up a second Apple ID from a different country. (Or even a third one.)
