Are you looking for a new laptop and considering the Macbook Air? The Macbook Air is a great choice, whether you’re looking for something lightweight and portable or just want to upgrade your current setup. But if you’re new to Macs, you may be wondering how to change the language on your Macbook Air. Don’t worry, it’s easy!

First of all, open the System Preferences app on your Macbook Air. You can find this by clicking the Apple icon in the top left corner of your screen. From there, select “Keyboard” from the sidebar. In the Text Input tab, click “Edit” and then select the language you want to use from the list on the left side.

Once you’ve selected a language, you can use some special key combinations to switch between input modes. For example, pressing Control-Shift-J will switch you to Hiragana mode while Option-Shift-Z will switch you back to English. If you have a JIS keyboard, pressing the Kana key (??) will also switch between languages.

You can also change languages by using Terminal – just launch Terminal (which is accessible from the fifth menu from the left under Utilities), type sudo language setup, and press Return. Then select your desired language from there.
