Let me know how it goes.

the システム設定 screen has 5 sub-interfaces.
I will one by one upload images.

You can try using calibre (or some other method) to load all the english books you want to read on your PRS T-3. I don't know french however when I changed my PRS T-1 langauge to french I wuz able to figure out how to open an e-book. . . and surpisingly the book wasn't in french either.

On the second picture, the last line states the T3 is on "demo mode" (デモモード) "on" (オン). Can you switch it to "off" (オフ)? Maybe the English will appear

May I ask how does it look like when the Japanese device opens English book (PDF, Epub)? Will it show the book in English?

Bests,

Bests,
The language of the device doesn't change the language of the book. The language settings only affect the user interface on the device. If a book is in English, it will still be in English no matter what the language is set to. At least, that's my understanding and what happens with North American units. I would think the same holds true for units bought in other countries.

Japanese T3

Interesting. Anyone has the chance to check whether this Japanese T-3 comes with a English Dictionary (English->English) and not English->Japanese Dictionary?

The user guide I found online stated that there was an English monolingual dictionary. However it also stated that the interface can be displayed in English and the screen captures posted don't show that. So I'm not sure (but more likely the dictionary will be there).

I hope this thread isn't dead.

I just received my PRS-T3S today. I bought it on Yahoo Auction here in Japan. My wife is Japanese and we went through all the menus and could not find a language setting. So, like the original poster, I want to know if it is possible to change the firmware. I had just assumed it was possible to change the language because it was possible on my Kobo (R.I.P.) which is a cheaper unit.

Did you, by any chance find a phone number in Japan to call?

I hooked up the device via USB cable to my computer, but it does not show up in Calibre or on the Desktop of my computer.

BTW, how do you turn on the light on the eReader?
TIA

Regarding the settings, I would download a user manual from the Japanese website to see what one is supposed to do with a Japanese firmware.

For the light, unfortunately Sony didn't put a light on the T series. You can buy a lighted cover which snaps at the back of the e-reader and then you pull the light out to start it.

We called Sony and found out it is not possible to change to English. Anyway, the lack of a backlight is a deal-breaker for me. It is going back up on Yahoo Auction ASAP. I guess I'll buy a Kindle or another Kobo. Are there any other alternatives? The thing I didn't like about the Kobo (other than the interface being clunky), and the reason I bought the Sony, was if you hold it with your thumb touching the screen it turns the page. I thought dedicated page turn buttons would be a good idea. Other than the Sony, I guess they all suffer from that flaw. Or do any have a setting where you can set it to only turn pages if you swipe a finger or another workaround?
