Getting English Language back on iLife and iWork

Ok, here goes: I accidentally deleted the English language from my Snow Leopard. Too make a long story short, I did a archive and re-installation of the OS. The languages including English were fully restored, but iLife and iWork are still in Spanish and i can't restore the English Language. Under system preferences the language and region are set properly, what else can I do?

Is this a good question?

NOTE: The English Language was deleted via the Monolingual App. Is there anyway to restore the English Language back on these apps.


did you delete it again or was that before you had everything reinstalled ? - sorry to ask that way, but you deleted the original question wich i answered. and btw - what ilife iwork version do you have ? - did you "scratch" all 3 dvd's (because you let them install osx, ilife and iwork)


No, I did't delete again. The English language is only missing from iLife and iWorks. I purchase a liscence for iWorks online cause it was only a trial version. But ilife i have never used, it came with my mac. They're both 09' versions.


I never said I "scratched" any CD's. iLife and iWorks came with my machine. Hard to scratch those.

Have you tried to uninstall and reinstall it?

To get the install file, get by torrenting it. Before you say "THIS IS ILLIGAL", you already paid for this software so you have the right to own backups in whatever form.

Well since i purchased a liscence for iwork I was able to delete and reinstall iWork with no problem. iLife was free so I was able to reinstall from disk 2 of my install disks that came with the machine. I'll accept your answer cause you were correct with the deleting and re-installing.
