Change SAS language

After I installed SAS base 9.2 in Windows 7, the options menu for enhanced editor is in Japanese. All other menus are in english. In the editor the key back slash "\" types in symbol for yen. When I mingled with the menus I found out that the SAS System options / Environment control / Language control shows:

DFLANG JAPANESE
DBCSLANG JAPANESE
LOCALE JAPANESE_JAPAN

among other options.

I'm new to SAS. I don't know how to change these options to English US. Please help.





How can I change the

Re: Change SAS language

re-local the directory to D:\SAS\SASFoundation\9.2\SASV9.CFG
Open it use Notepad, and change the following line
[pre]
-CONFIG "d:\SAS\SASFoundation\9.2\nls\zh\SASV9.CFG"

to

-CONFIG "d:\SAS\SASFoundation\9.2\nls\en\SASV9.CFG"
[/pre]

zh is to mean chinese version sas.
en is to mean english version sas.
