paint 3d language

Paint 3D can be a very useful tool when it comes to 3D modeling. However, many users encountered an issue with the language setting of the app. Simply put, the option to set the desired language is nowhere to be found.

For quite a few people, this is a major problem as one user said on the official Microsoft forum:

I have windows 10 on my Sony Vaio Laptop and it’s got upgraded and now I see new App that is Paint 3D but it is in Arabic and My Windows 10 is in English then why it is in Arabic?? Is there ant way to change the Language?

So, even if Windows 10 is in English, Paint 3D comes in Arabic. This is a major issue for those who want to show other people something on Paint 3D. In this case, a screenshot will not help someone who doesn’t know Arabic.
