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.

Google provides a language setting per Google-account. Since this page will likely be in Greek for you, I'll quote it below: https://support.google.com/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32047 To change the display language for Google Accounts, you'll need to change your Google interface language: Visit your Accounts settings page. (https://...

I switched to Bing.com because of it. They have very convenient options as "Narrow by language" and "Narrow by region" right above search results. Also you can go to settings and set search results only in English and it really works as opposed to Google "fake" settings. As for your question about Google I didn't find any working solution. All the other ...

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 ...

As @MathiasKegelmann mentioned, from IMDB's help you have two options: Create an account and go to https://secure.imdb.com/register-imdb/siteprefs to change your preferred language. Or by using this link: http://akas.imdb.com, you will always see films listed under their original titles regardless of your login status or site preferences. Don't forget ...

First of all, I recommend you to start with clearing your Google cookies, since I think it can be that Google stores your language in a cookie as well. After your did that, head over to https://www.google.com/settings/language and select your language. Normally all Google services should be in that language by default then, but I know of some that manage ...

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 ...

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, it'...

There is no way to do this currently. Other languages will come with future versions.

Go to Settings -> Under the Hood -> Web Content -> Languages and spell-checker settings and make sure the first language in the list is English (or English (United States)). If you don't have it in the list, click Add to add it. Webpage language preferences help Google Chrome determine the language it should use to display a webpage. To adjust ...

I had a very similar situation, my Google Account default language settings was already set to English; there are 2 solutions to this: 1st Solution, applies to all Google services: Change the language here: https://www.google.com/settings/language, go from English to another language, confirm then revert to English again 2nd Solution, applies to the ...

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.

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.

Recently, the http://akas.imdb.com endpoint stopped working. By default, IMDb 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_url = 'http://www.imdb.com/chart/top' headers = {'Accept-...

Change the language setting of your google docs to French (under settings). I had to do this for my German language form - it works!

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.

A quick fix would be to add "&hl=en" to URL of the service you use. That, however, needs to be done manually for each session you start. I'm still looking for an automation technique like a browser plugin for that.

The only way you can change the language of Google Maps is through your Google Account settings. Click on your email address on the top right hand corner and select Account. In the destination page, there is an option under Language and choose English (US) from the drop down.

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 ...

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.

Yes, there is. Add the optional parameter language to the request URL: https://www.google.com/maps/embed/v1/MODE?key=API_KEY&language=en See the API reference for further information.
