Look for reset button, or pinhole and do a factory reset of the device. If its a stick you will have to re-pair the wifi remote. When the roku is bouncing, start pressing anf holding the pairing button in the battery compartment, when stops bouncing, release for a bit and start pressing again until you get confirmation its paired. First thing it has you do is pick language.

Language choice never comes up. I did all the steps to pair at least 5 times. The language choice still doesn't appear.

How about Settings->System->Language?  You should be able to translate what's shown now into those 3 words.

Look up on your computer german word for language. Look thru settings and find the language

word in german and change to English, or the same for Spanish to find English. It worked for me, just 

took some time, not unlike getting some customer service help that always takes time.
