Don’t like or understand the current display language in Chrome? Here are the steps to change the Chrome language in simple and easy steps.
In my recent post, I’ve shown you guys how to change Windows 10 language from Chinese to English. After reading that, one of the WindowsLoop readers sent me an email asking how he could change the Google Chrome language from Chinese to English. As most of you know, Chrome supports multiple languages as any major application would. In fact, you can use Chrome in almost all major languages. For the most part, English is the default language in Chrome either by choice, geolocation, or design.
Having Chrome display some other language than English is common, such as accidental language switching, Chrome defaulting to system language, etc. If you know the language, using Chrome in another language is nothing complicated. However, it is almost impossible to use Chrome if you don’t know the language because you cannot understand all the important Chrome options.
The good thing is, it is pretty easy to change Google Chrome’s default language to anything you want.
So, without further ado, let me show how it’s done.
Note: I’ve chosen to show language switching from Chinese to English in Chrome for demonstration purposes. The same steps are applicable even if your display language is different, such as Arabic, Japanese, Hindi, Telugu, etc.
Change Google Chrome Language to English
- First, open the Google Chrome browser if it is not already.
2. After opening the Chrome browser, copy and paste chrome://settings/languages in the address bar and press Enter.
3. The above action will take you to the Language settings page. Click on the first dropdown menu and click on the blue link. The blue link is the “Add Languages” button.
4. In the pop-up window, scroll down until you find the English language. More often than not, the English option will be at the bottom of the list. Since there will be multiple flavors of English, choose one according to your usage and click on the Blue Button.
5. Even though you’ve added the language, it is not yet set. So, find the added language from the expanded menu and click on the “Menu” icon (three vertical dots). Now, select the first checkbox.
6. Finally, you need to relaunch the Google Chrome browser to apply the changes. So, close the browser and open it again.
That is it. You’ve successfully changed the Google Chrome language back to English.
