Change that source URL to read http://spreadsheets.google.com/embeddedform?key=...KEYcode...&hl=fr. Adding &hl=fr is all it takes to change the language to French. BTW: this trick is overruled by the Settings of Google Docs of the client using your form. So problably it seems not to work on your own computer if you are logged in on Google Docs.

I think the solution is to turn off the "Personal results" option in the Search Settings page. You reach it by navigating to: Account Settings -> Search Settings -> Personal Results -> Do not use personal results I discovered this because I noticed that if I was not sign in with my google account the results were shown in the language defined by ...

When creating websites, special characters need to be taken into extra consideration. HTML, the markup language used to write webpages, provides its own means of including special, non-"normal" characters. These characters include accent marks, special symbols, and more. The reason this is necessary is due to the nature of how webpage files are saved. In ...

When you select get directions a link shows up under the input boxes for the addresses for your query that is titled "Show Options". If you select that link you see two check boxes below and on the right of those is a section that says miles / km. You can switch between US standard and metric by selecting the appropriate unit.

If you really want to do this, you can format the query string so that it contains the lr=lang_<language code> parameter. There is no easier way to do this.

How can I report bad translations? If you see a bad translation on the site, you can downvote the string by searching for it in the Translations app and clicking on the 'x' next to the translation in question. You can also suggest an alternative translation, or vote up an existing translation. If the bad translation remains on the site, you can raise ...

try clicking this link, it may fix your problem: http://www.google.com/trends/?hl=en What happens is this: Google saves a state of your "current language" in their servers. They probably use this to customize ads for you. This "?hl=en" parameter tells Google you prefer a different language (English in this example). It works across all their services.

It is not possible to change the language of Draw.io, unless you change your own computer's language setting to English, which would then change the language of Draw.io accordingly. If this is not feasible, you can try adding a ?lang=en at the end of the URL (like https://www.draw.io/?lang=en) to force it to appear in English, but it will not remember this ...

Ok. I found the solution. Before logging in, there is a language selection at the bottom-right of the page. I couldn't find it because it was in Polish... Still can't understand why Google don't use general Google language settings on Google Analytics.

I believe that they only support native languages. As far as I have been able to tell there is no alternate audio stream associated with the streaming videos.

Please forgive the self promotion, but I built a tool that does exactly this, which I hope you and others might find useful, called GeoPeeker. It remotely accesses a site from servers spread around the world, renders the page with webkit and sends back an image. It will also report the IP address of the site as it appears from that location. It's free, ...

In short, yes! Assuming you have a second language installed on your machine, you should simply be able to toggle to it normally. According to my experience Google Docs will automatically support it if your OS does. You can toggle back and forth at will (usually Cmd+Space on Mac, Alt+Shift on Windows, and user-defined on Linux) as you would in any other ...

Recently, the http://akas.imdb.com endpoint stopped working for me. By default, it will now use your geolocation to provide localized content. However, you can override this behaviour by sending an Accept-Language HTTP header. Using Ruby, this is how I solved this problem: require 'open-uri' IMDB_TOP_URL = 'http://www.imdb.com/chart/top' HEADERS_HASH = ...

I guess http://www.imdb.com/help/show_leaf?titlelanguagedisplay might be what you are looking for. We recently modified the way titles are displayed on the site. Users will now by default see titles listed in the language used for release in their country (i.e. US-based users will see films listed under the title used for the North American ...

You may want to try out this userscript that I wrote. It makes all of the links on the page link to the simplified chinese version. Basically, the traditional links are under /wiki/, and the simplified Chinese links are under /zh-cn/. Rather simple matter to replace the /wiki/ in each link. You can download the script by clicking on "raw". See here for ...

The URL string hl sets the interface language for Google Search and many other Google services. You can do same as I did and create different search engines for different languages. When I search for "something" without a keyword, or with the "g" keyword, my browser goes to http://www.google.com/search?&tbo=1&prmdo=1&hl=en&q=something ...

Try gl=us or hl=en in the URL to force a change to the site.
