Language setting on LUMIX fz1000ii - HELP!!!

I turned on my new Panasonic LUMIX FZ1000ii and when I got to the language setting I accidentally bumped something and now everything is in Japanese (?) or Chinese. I’m not sure.  At any rate I can’t read it and I need to change it to English.  Can anyone help?

Re: Language setting on LUMIX fz1000ii - HELP!!!

I don't have the Mk2, but hopefully this will help. The language setting is in the menu with the spanner/wrench symbol, which on my camera is the last menu before the playback menu. See image below. The language setting is on page 3 of 5 on my camera, but that may not be the case on the Mk2. What is probably the same, is the symbol at the right on the language setting, which is a rather odd looking symbol that seems to indicate someone talking. So the chances are the language setting is still in the same menu category and if so, go through it and if you can find that face symbol with a speech balloon with dots in it, then that's the language setting.

If that can help further, English (the language) reads 英语 in simplified Chinese, 英語 in Japanese and traditional Chinese. The second character could also rather be 文 (written language).

On the FZ10002, the language setting is the second entry down on page 3 of 4 on the spanner menu. Regardless of the set language, it has the icon of a little man with a speech bubble to the right of the entry. Just select, press set, and make your choice.
