I'm working with a Korean language copy of SQL Server 2005. I'm not familiar with the software so I have to match buttons by hotkey, comparing with screenshots from tutorials when my limited Korean fails me.

Is there a way to switch the whole thing's language to English? Would I have to download a language pack, and if so, where are they available?

From what I know it's not possible to change the interface language of SSMS. There is also no language pack downloads available.

SQL Server Management Studio can be downloaded from here:

Please keep in mind that date and currency format will still be fetched from Control Panel -> Region and Language settings.
