I ask this because many times, installers are bone-headed and they use the language from the input location instead of system language. For instance, I live in Portugal, but I have my Windows in English. Just because my locale/keyboard are Portuguese, sometimes programs insist on using that language instead of the system default.

Ph.D - try to set all the settings to english, no matter what, and reinstall the drivers. A.k.a. remove the japaneese from the keyboard settings, etc. It might work... on the other hand, it might not work. That said, the translation on those drivers are horrid. When the exact same message came up in swedish, I had to read it 3 times.

"These drivers must be wrong!" I thought so I went to the Asus website and downloaded the latest drivers there.
"I'll take this opportunity and download better drivers!" I thought so I got the Uni Xonar drivers and installed those.
Why on earth is almost everything on my Xonar in German? And how do I set it to English?
My Windows is in English and the text on the box of the Xonar was in English as well.

They can't have seriously hardcoded German into that card right? That would mean they'd have to release different versions for each language. That's just downright silly.

Did you talk to Asus? You could try removing the driver software and the registry entries and downloading the most recent version of the drivers from their website.

Well I'm not in Germany so I don't understand that, then.

On a similar note to the previous post, how about temporarily renaming the German language file for the Audio Centre application (AsusAudioCenterResDeu.dll) and seeing if it then defaults to a different (hopefully default English) version?
