Changing the Voice Command language

Hi, I've tried searching this forum (and google for that matter) for topics on "how to change the voice command language" in a Ford Focus 2011.

I've found some referances on the cmax-club forums where they claim you can change the language at your Ford dealer, by inserting a USB with the correct files from the Ford ETIS site. This procedure should take roughly 20 minutes, so they claim.

Does anyone here have any information on this topic? My situation is that I've bought a Focus in Norway, but it was imported by the Ford dealer from Germany and thus understands only German. (text/menu/other is English).

Hope someone has info on this, my Ford dealer tells me they have no clue :P

I haven't heard of this, Jongsanim, but I'm in the U.S. The only available languages for the SYNC system here are English, Spanish, and French.

It's such as awesome feature, I definitely hope you'll find a way to switch it to the appropriate dialect.

I had the same problem (German import car, text was in Dutch but voice commands in English).

Contact me for more information about the needed files, just installed the update and voila, voice command in Dutch also!

Oh, btw: Update is for Sync 2 only!

Voice command language change for 2010 Focus

Can anyone help me with information on how to camnge the language of the voice command system in my Focus MK2 2010/11 - it's a Focus X-road only sold in mainland europe but it is esentially a standard Focus estate with a body-style kit!
I bought the car in Spain (where I use it) but the voice command language is Spanish and, whilst I do speak some SPanish, I'd like to change the language to English to make full use of it.
The ICE head unit is a Sony with a single CD player, iPod connection etc. and an orange dot matrix display...
Hope someone can help!
Cheers, Steve
