After programming my Baofeng UV-5R with Chirp, my radio reverts back to Chinese Language and will also not display my channel names. After I manually programed the radio, every time I turned the radio on it would display my programmed channels. Now when you turn it on it displays frequency mode and speaks Chinese.

Have you been able to resolve this on your own since you submitted this?
Have you tried with a recent version since you submitted this? 0.4.0 is an ancient version which has known bugs on Baofeng radios.
If you haven't, and if you're still having this issue, please refer to the Wiki "How To Report Issues" and provide a debug log. Thanks!
