No, there isn't a quick tool anymore to change languages, but it can be changed easily enough with an SQL query. Run the following after making the necessary changes in your SQL Toolbox/phpMyAdmin:

UPDATE ibf_members SET language = 'new_id' WHERE language = 'old_id';

Replace new_id with the ID of the language pack you want to change members to, replace old_id with the ID of the language pack users are currently using.

Please let us know if you need further assistance.
