Pages for Mac – Free Templates for Pages for Mac It's 2019, and Pages for Mac (Previously iWork) is still a great resource for creating business marketing materials. Apple has done a great job of improving Pages over the years and including updated templates. Go Templates for Pages is a collection of 100 templates designed for and compatible only with Pages. Create attractive documents with templates for brochures, invoices, letters, envelopes, and business cards. Go to File, save as template and save it as: 'Blank.template' (template is the file's extension) to your Desktop. Go to the iWork folder where the Pages app is, and right-click (or ctrl-click) Pages, and select Show Package Contents, then go to Contents- Resources- Templates- Blank and copy-paste your edited Desktop file to this folder.

Yes, I do something similar with a program I use called CocoaJT, but via the Terminal. I use English as the system language, but I prefer to use CocoaJT in French. So, I went into the ../CocoaJT.app/Contents/Resources directory and renamed English.lproj (to Anglish.lproj), and mv'ed French.lproj to English.lproj .
For CocoaJT, if you select the application icon and Get Info and in the Info pane uncheck English (and Japanese), under Languages, your menus will appear in French. If you uncheck English and French, the menus will appear in Japanese.
If you just want the Dutch templates, this hint is fine, but if you simply want to run Pages (or CocoaJT) in another language other than the system default, there's no need to manually go mucking around in the application's package. All you need to do is get info on the application, reveal the 'Language' section, and uncheck the box for your system language. Assuming that you have another backup language set in your International preference pane (I have it set to use Italian first, then English, then French), the program will fall back to the next language on your list that's activated for that application.
simX, very cool! Also a bit scary .. I unchecked English, and saw Keynote open in German for me, then I thought, why not delete Japanese, or another language I don't understand at all? I tried it, but the system warned me that my app might not run properly if I did this, so I canceled.
Génial! Excellent suggestion, thanks.
This still doesn't do what I think most people want:
To be able to run their system and probably most Applications in language A (e.g. English in my case) and have the spell-checking dafault to language B (which happens to be Dutch in my case as well)
I have tried both hints but still the language field in the inspector thinks I want my spelling checked against the English dictionary. Arrgh.
I think you are right. No matter what language the menus are in, the spell check in Pages keeps reverting to English. Must be a bug, or maybe there's some non-obvious preference somewhere.
I think the paragraph styles have a language setting. So the English templates have English paragraph styles, etc.
Well, if you select French from the info panel for Pages, leaving all the other languages disabled, and start Pages, selecting one of the (now French-titled) templates, and then look at the spell check control under Edit (or, Ã‰dition), it does indeed say FranÃ§ais. But then if you start typing in French, it starts flagging spelling errors; if you go back into the spell check control, now it has magically gone back to English. I think it's a bug.
the «Â ParagraphÂ » style language must be set to the desired language
