daja, is it your iPod? Never heard that ir changes the language settings. Anyhow, here is my answer from a similar question How to I fix my disabled iPod Touch? See if this will help. Apple says "If you cannot turn off the device using the slider, press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. When the device turns off, release the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons." Now there is a way to erase the password but I am not sure if this would work when you are already disabled. I guess you can always try and hope you have a windows computer :-) anyhow you plug in your iPod. Open My Computer (or Computer for Vista). Click on Folder options and enable to view hidden files. Next go to iPod_control and click on the folder named Device. If your iPod is locked, there will be a file _locked . Rename the file to _unlocked. Remove your iPod and it will be cleared, again not sure if it works for a disabled one. Just thought of something else. Make sure you have your library backed up.

Also check what Apple has to say about that on here

Of course, also look at this" "You can unlock it putting the device into DFU mode and then restore it with itunes, BUT this will erase all data on your iPod. Here is an excellent description how to place your iPod in DFU mode.

If nothing else, this may be a bit easier :-) Connect your iPod to your computer and turn your iPod Off. Press and hold the power button for 3 Seconds. Continuing to hold the Power button, and press the home button as well for 10 seconds. Release the power button, continue holding down the home button for another 10 seconds. iTunes should now detect your iPod in recovery mode, press OK, and restore your iPod. Oh yes, you can now let go of all the buttons. lease the buttons. It may take a few tries to get it in DFU mode. Hope this helps, good luck.
