Anyone know how to change interface language?

[ Edited ]

I'm setting an NC up for someone whose first language is Spanish.   My first language is English, so while I was setting it up I needed English and now I'm looking for an alternate language setting, so far without luck. 

 

Does anyone know how to choose a different language once the device has been set up?  I know Android has extensive world language support.  Please don't tell me that BN, after making a big deal about its Spanish language e-book selection, has gone and thrown away those translations. 

 

I have tried editing build.prop on my device to read

 

ro.product.locale.language=es

 

and restarted. 

 

Some of the apps understand that I want dialogs in Spanish.  The operating system itself does not, nor do most apps (so far, only superuser and the music app seem aware of the change.)
