Its not built in. You need a Language specific Rom. Usually an update from verizon can do the trick but i cant seem to find any.

Or you can go with a Cooked rom but that will void your warranty or Brick your device.

what is a Language specific Rom, it's a hardware or a software?
i found on the samsung forums for the UK, that you can change to english if your phone is from Netherlands, but i still don't know if i can do it if it's fro France.
thanks a lot
