changing language in C12 and migration questions

    I try to use C1 since C10 and each time I upgraded to a new version (C11 then C12), there were no migration of my previous catalogs. I had to import them manually...

    When you install a new version of Capture One, the list of recent sessions and catalogs will be empty. It will get populated as you open existing sessions and catalogs. They are not "in" Capture One or "migrated to" Capture One. It is only a list of recent documents, like the recent files list you get in other apps such as Microsoft Word, or Excel. Also when you first use an existing session or catalog with a new version of Capture One, it will need to convert it to the newest format. (So for example if you use Capture One 12 to open a session last used with Capture One 11, it will tell you that the session has to be updated to version 12. And it will backup the version 11 session file. Note that this only updates the session database - it doesn't make any changes to the images and their edits. You can update images to the newest processing engine if you choose to, but it may not be a good idea to do it routinely for every image because the edits you have worked on may come out differently.)

    So you can open old sessions and catalogs from the new version of the app by using File>Open and navigating to the session or catalog file.

    Hello

    I would like to change the language of C12. I use MacOs 12. I saw a previous post about same question on C10.

    Is it same procedure to change it to english ? I see in the ressources folder called "ja.lproj", would it be enough to change it to "lproj".


    My default language for a new Capture One version is my OS language (French). I go to fr.lproj and transform it into fr.(lproj), and when I open C1, it has switched to English.
    I don't have the same behaviour as Ian. When I install a new version (say N) of Capture One, it always open the last catalog I dealt with when I left the N-1.

    Yes I think that it will open the most recent catalog (or session) but if I remember rightly (it was a year ago now that I updated to version 12!) it may have lost the recent list, and that would need to be repopulated. But I may have remembered wrongly from a year ago.

    Hello

    Thanks to all for your answers !

    so I understand better the logic of C1. It is a great retouching tool for sure but it lacks a real indexing tool (because here catalogue means something else). It would be a great step to switch completely to C1 from lightroom.

    In case I want "fr.lproj" because by default C12 to downloaded me the Asian version I guess. I don't find this folder. I am French using a MacOs in japanese.... Is there any possibility to get it ?

    Is there speed differences between C12 and C20 ?

    Kind regards

    All localisations (or languages) are in the same CO download, worldwide.

    Please do not mess around with the .lproj folders. This is the worst option to deal with your request. For one reason, each update or upgrade will deny all changes.

    For macOS users, there is a simple app in the Mac App Store named App Language Chooser. Of course, I do not know whether this is available in the Japanese Mac App Store. If so, I highly recommend you to use it. You can both temporarily and permanently change the language setting of any app on your Mac.

    In case this does not exist, the app, we can discuss a terminal command to execute only once (until you upgrade, I think).

    @Paul_Steunebrink , thanks a lot !!

    It worked indeed without going into the internals of C12.

    I guess that the subject was raised already but is there a speed difference between C12 and C20 ?

    Have a good day !
