    Which Lumia did you get?

    Here's a fix for your problem:-
    1.) Go to Settings (I hope you can decipher the Settings app by its icon).
    2.) Then find some settings with a "+" sign in their names.
    3.) One of them should be language+region
    4.) It should look something like this :- 言語+領域 (Japanese)
    언어 + 지역 (Korean)
    语言+区域 (Chinese)

    (I don't know why the Japanese and Chinese words look quite similar!)
    5.) How to confirm it's the right place, isn't it? Well, the language+region has four option-selecting boxes with three lines separating third and fourth boxes.
    6.) Of the four, first one is what you need. Go ahead, touch it and scroll to look for English (US, UK, India, etc... whatever you want)
    7.) Restart your phone and you're good to go!
    8.) After restarting you may also change the country in the same place as before.
    9.)Thank me

    ​Good luck!

    Not related to the topic but just to let you know, Kanji characters (Japanese) originates from Mandarin characters, from traditional ones actually. So, in traditional characters, its actually 語言+區域, which has more similarity to the Kanji characters. Although some words are written the same way, their pronunciation is way different.

    Good thing I came across this thread as my wife's mother just got a Lumia 630 from an internet site and it arrived in Chinese and my wife nor her mother can figure out what to do. I'm at work right now and in a few minutes I will be heading over there to see what I can figure out. My boss is from China and he got the same phone from the same company for his son and had the same issue with language, but since he's from China, that wasn't an issue. I'd ask him but he's gone for a week to China at the moment.

    With a Lumia 630, I don't think it has a camera button, but I will try the tip regarding the navigation through the settings mentioned by Deepak and give you guys an update on how things turn out.
