If you live in Greater China you will know that stuff (phones, tablets, etc.) often comes with Chinese as the default setting. And the (pitifully) few Chinese characters I might recognize are nowhere near enough to navigate through the menus to find the option to change to English.
Yes it’s my own fault for buying a tablet with Chinese Windows. I was in a hurry and I assumed that it would be easy to switch to English. Indeed (with some help), I changed the primary language to English.
Then I downloaded Evernote Touch, and it’s all in Chinese. What? I couldn’t find the menu in the application, and it turns out you have to do something in Windows and then all is (reasonably) well. Anyway, waste of time because it’s rubbish. Back to the normal (desktop version) of the program, which is fine except that there’s no way to do a right-click.
This is strange because in Google Chrome you can do a right-click (hold your finger and up pops a menu).
But back to the point - is it too much to ask that there should always be a button or high-level menu in English, Spanish, or French that takes you to language selection?
