You can however manually change it :

  2. Right click lang.reg and choose open with and select any text editor
    (like Notepad, or Notepad++, or VS Code.. etc.)
  3. Set the last 3 digits to your required language in “dword” at the top:  809 = English.

Printer Display Language

Your Magicard Printer will inherit it’s language from the printer driver, when a print job is received.

It can also be changed using a Quick Command from:

  • ID Card Printer Support Utility ❐  (for Generation 1 printers Only, Rio Pro, Enduro, Pronto)
  • Or from the Tools Tab in the driver’s Printer Properties (within the latest versions of the driver).
  • In the Quick Commands box type the following:


    LNG = LaNGuage

    Followed by your desired country’s designated digit from the chart below.

    LNG0 = English, in the example above.

    The available languages (for the printer’s display) are:

    English 0
    Portuguese 1
    French 2
    German 3
    Spanish 4
    Italian 5
    Polish 6
    Romanian 7


⚠️ The printer will still inherit the language from the Driver upon the very next print job sent.
