    Download and install itunes from apple.com
    Plug in your iPad
    Click it in the left hand column in iTunes and click Restore.

    Also see apples support here

    The display language can be changed directly from the iPad.

    To do so:
    -Open the Settings app, it has the toothwheel icon
    -on the left side, select the nineth option, it also has a toothwheel icon
    -now on the right-hand side, select the third option from the bottom
    -and finally choose the first option from the top and set the display language to one you're familiar with

    This does not restore your data, but it let's you understand and use the iPad again.

    You may still want to connect the iPad to iTunes and choose Restore, than Restore from Backup, in order to copy back any information that may have been on the iPad.

    It may be of interest, through what means a stolen iPad can be reunited with the original owner.

    I was just wondering why he needed more ~ the info that the OP gave, seemed to satisfy you as you answered his question, correct?:)

    Of course. I edited the original comment and than further edited your post, where you quoted me. All without having the forum show any edit stamps. I am brilliant, am I not?
