I created a second language profile on LinkedIn which is becoming too much of a hassle to keep up to date. I also no longer need a profile in that language. This was created on the same account as my primary profile (it is not a second account).

How can I delete this secondary profile?

To delete a secondary language profile:

Click Profile at the top of your home page.
Click on Edit Profile just below.
Select the language from the Profile dropdown in the upper right.
Click Delete this profile.
Click Yes, Delete Profile.

Annoyingly, you can't:

Profiles cannot be removed once they have been created.

This is no longer true. They recently added the ability to do this. – Good Person Nov 6 '11 at 0:31
