Open SQL Server Management Studio.

In the Menu bar click on Tools >> Options

Under Environment Settings go to International Settings

Next, on the right side, you will see the option to select Language. If under dropdown you do not see your preferred language, you can get additional language after installing necessary additional language packs.

Once the language pack is installed, once you will be able to see the additional language in the drop-down. Once you select the new language, you will be able to see your SSMS in your preferred language.

The language pack which is available for SSMS is actually of Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 Language Pack and supports all the language which Visual Studio supports.
