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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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.

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

There are some list of proxies available: http://www.proxy4free.com/list/webproxy_country1.html http://www.proxylist.net/sort/country http://www.samair.ru/proxy/type-01.htm Except using proxies there is only the option to let the website overwrite the country by an URL parameter (for testing purposes). You can have the following url: ...

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 ...

You can add the following parameters to the query to limit your search to a particular language: &lr=lang_xx&hr=xx Where xx is the language code you want to search in (like en for English, de for German, etc.) For example: https://www.google.hu/search?q=invalid%20partition%20table&lr=lang_en&hr=en or ...

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.

By luck I found it! Here you can set your language settings for when you login to Google.com: https://www.google.com/preferences This is a big usability bug in Google. Maybe they don't understand that if you write "Settings" in a language I don't know I'm never gonna figure it out even if you put it right in front of my face! Excuse the rant.

It is currently not possible to easily do internationalisation for GitHub wiki pages and/or GitHub Pages, but you can if you do quite a bit of changes. Lets say for example, the main working language in your repository is English. You can create pages in the wiki with the content in English (so the page called "Installation" will provide details on ...

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.

If you click the Search Settings link (in the gear drop-down), you should be able to set the default language for Google, and then include other languages. Google makes it clear that the default language is always included: Google Search automatically returns results in the language you choose for Google product text, but you can also request results in ...

Since I didn't find a way to do that on Youtube anymore, I've created these new generic Google video searches to get localized results: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%s&gbv=1&ie=UTF-8&tbo=u&tbm=vid&pws=0 http://www.google.com.br/search?hl=pt-BR&q=%s&gbv=1&ie=UTF-8&tbo=u&tbm=vid&pws=0

As far as I understand, this is how they changed it: First, you look up the definition using definition: or define: and if you click on ">>More" link placed next to the result, the definiton page opens. At the lower right corner, there is a box called Related Languages (it says: this term is also a word in ...). So when you click on one of them, you can see ...

It really depends on the framework you're using to build your web app. To take an example that I'm most familiar with, the Django (Python) system has pretty extensive locale support, including a Locale middleware package and the ability to localize Javascript components as well as a simple tool for user selection of locale. You can read all about it in ...

I can't say for a fact that this would work, but the WolframAlpha search engine has detailed information on countries, including a section on neighboring countries (see this example). And they have an API to their search service. I can't vouch for the API, but the search engine is extremely useful and accurate.
