Changing language setting from French to English

Hello, I set up my skype in French (in order to practice!) when I download it, but would like to change the language setting to English.  I do not see a tool (outils) pull down menu, as mentioned in several postings about changing the language setting, or any tab about changing lanuages -- perhaps the French version doesn't have an obvious way to switch the language?  Should I re-download it?  Merci beaucoup.

Re : Changing language setting from French to English

Hi there,

 

An utility such as "Language Switcher" might do the trick, I guess.

Else, simply remove 'French.lproj' folder from Skype >>> Contents/Resources.
