This is probably a geolocation issue.

How can I stop websites such as change.org and blogger.com from displaying in the local language. I don't understand the local language when I'm traveling. This is a serious hindrance, not to mention risky if one tries to use a website when unsure of the meaning of things.

Is there some sort of proxy I can use on an ad hoc basis, or even on a short time subscription basis when I am traveling?

I'm using Fedora, so in network setting I manually enter the DNS server IP address(es) of either the ISP from my home or a local Google server. This has helped me in the past loading the pages in English and not the local language.

Sorry, but can you be more specific in your answer? Your answer is rather vague and does not really answer the main part of the question. – Hydra Jun 7 '13 at 23:46
@Hydra I've improved the answer to provide a more detailed explanation. Since the question doesn't have enough details I can't give a specific answer, therefore my answer could be applied to any platform as a generic strategy. – slybloty Jun 8 '13 at 4:01
