Change language offline

As you can see, you need a good network connection to use the above methods.

If you want to change Kodi’s language on a device that doesn’t have access to the internet, the following steps may help.

The official website,, is where you can get the zipped Kodi language addon.
Go to to find your version of Kodi. Here, I’m using “Matrix” as an example.
Scroll down the page until you find all the “resource.language.XXXX/” language plugins.

Click on the language you want and save file.

Don’t open the zip file. Now, use a USB cable, USB flash drive, etc. to move the compressed language and Kodi installers to another device.

Once Kodi is installed, enable installation from Unknown Sources and go to the Add-ons menu on the home screen > Add-ons Browser > Install from zip file.

Find the location of file you downloaded and install the language plugin.

You will then be asked to change the language of the installation.

As you can see, it’s easy to change the language in Kodi, whether it’s your preferred language or one of the dozens that are supported.
