Please follow the instructions here to change your language back to English: http://community.skype.com/t5/Windows-desktop-client/How-to-change-language-back-to-English/m-p/2097...

This is given the fact you are using Skype for Windows. If that's not the case please share some more information on which version you are using.

Same issue and I cannot see the link being shared. It says I do not have enough permission. Can someone help?

I have inadvertantly clicked on Chinese language for my skype screen and cannot return to English.  How do I return when I cannot read Chinese?

The answer given was not helpful.  I was referred to another screen, but access was denied saying I did not have proper authority.

Please allow me to assist as it took me a long time to find the solution.... Simply push Crtl + Space bar to change the typing language!

I have the same problem as accidently I changed fron English to Chinese, and I cannot read the symbols. I followed the link only to receive the following - You do not have sufficient privileges for this resource or its parent to perform this action. That's not helpful so please assist.
