In this article, I explain how to change the language of Hikvision cameras.
The procedure is very simple and takes less than 1 minute.
Change the language on Hikvision cameras
Most of the IP cameras have a menu that allows you to change the language. It's usually located on the system menu or something similar.

Just for comparison, I got a screenshot from a camera from another brand.
The picture below shows an example of the language menu on a Wisenet camera.
Sometimes you can find an old Hikvision camera (or using an old firmware) that uses a similar approach to change the camera language. However, the new camera models allow you to change the language during the login process.

In the Hikvision camera login screen there's a menu to choose the language. You just need to click the drop down box and select the one you want.

It's pretty simple, huh?
I recorded a video to show how it's done.
