    Was fooling around on my ipad and changed the language from English to Arabic; how do I get back as now I can't read any of the options. I guess I need someone to tell me to click on settings, then go to the ___line and click. I am pretty sure I was on the first line in language settings when I changed from English to Arabic.
    Thanks

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad


    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Concerning languages, I have a question.

    I live and work in France and can easily change my keyboard from one language to another. But when I copy a text from another document to quote in the document I am writing, how do I get the iPad to recognise the language in the section I am pasting in my document? If I were altering the selected text, there would not be a problem, but as I am simply pasting, it underlines every word as incorrect.

    Mais quand même, l'iPad est formidable!!

    'Settings', 'General', 'International', 'Language' and choose the language you want there.
