Select menu
Select spanner(wrench) for setup menu.
Scroll down through the menu, there are five pages of menu items on my camera! it moves to a new page when you move off the bottom.
The language option is the penultimate item - it has an icon of a head with a speech bubble.

SOURCE: LANGUAGE SETTING JAPANESE TO ENGLISH

Hello analyn
There may be a simple fix to this problem.
Find a friend that has a cybershot of the same model as your own. In their camera, open the menu and navigate to the language setting. While you do this count how many times you press the button. Example:
Menu
-camera settings 1
-program 2
-personal settings 3 press ok

personal settings
-storage type 1
-date and time 2
-language 3 press ok

language
-spanish 1
-english 2 press ok
-japanese




Although the language is different, the number of spaces should be the same, so even though you can't read it to change the language, you should be able to count it out. Or if you are lucky you may have a Japanese friend who can read it.





Hope this helps
-Chris

SOURCE: change language from japanese to english

Does this help? "Changing the Language Setting" is located on the first page towards the bottom. It instructions of the symbols you select to reach the language section.

If this doesn't work could you try using google translate the locate the language section?

Slide the [REC]/[PLAYBACK] switch to the REC position (camera icon). Set the mode dial to AUTO (green camera). Press MENU/SET to display the menu. Select LANGUAGE (head with speech bubble). Pick your language from there.

Change language from japanese to english on NEX-5N


You absolutely cannot select any other language on Japanese domestic SONY models. The professional line up of camcorders come with an English selection in the menu, but not the consumer models.
Suggestions by well intentioned but ill-informed people to follow the menu in the English user guide, will not get you anywhere. The Japanese models do not include this item in the menu. Plain and simple.
Visitors to Japan should be careful when purchasing items here as they more often than not only include Japanese manuals. SONY and Panasonic also only include English menus in their cameras. Canon and Nikon do have an English selection, but this should be confirmed at the point of purchase not after returning to your country!! Furthermore, warranties are usually only valid for Japan.

How to change language for HDR CX560V Japan from basic Japan to English


I have compared its instruction manual in English and Japanese versions and found that the language setting part is absent in Japanese version. So that the japanese version will support only japanese.
I have asked the seller in Bic Camera shop (in Japan) and he tried to change the language in the menu, but unfortunately he could't find and change it.

Cannot change language DMC-TZ7


I am afraid,that Panasonic in Japan provides only Japanese language for the Japanese market. English or any other language is only included for the models aimed for export
