I had recently installed LibreOffice 5 by executing these commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-5-0
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install libreoffice

The interface is by default in English. Can I change it to Latin American Spanish?

To change user interface language in libreoffice:

  1. Make sure the language pack is installed.

    For this,open "Language & region " in system settings.

    Click on comple install under "install missing languages" ,if the required language is not available.

    Note: No need to change any other settings in that tab.

2.Go to libreoffice tools-->> options.. -->> language settings -->> language.

3.Now change User interface, Locale setting , Default currency , and default document language to desired language.

This will change the language only for LibreOffice, leaving other applications in English.



tools -> options ->Language Settings -> language

you can change the language to the language you want and you installed


This video clearly shows how to do this on Mac OS https://youtu.be/uT5F_OxrMy8
