After using Google from work behind proxy servers, for some reason, they redirected me to Netherlands Google. Ever since, my Google account has been stuck in Dutch no matter where I use my Google account from - at home, my phone, someone else's computer, on Mars... I cannot shake off this Dutch from my account.

I have tried following through this article to no success: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/32047?hl=en&co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop - my language is set to English, and yes I tried clearing browsing history too, and I have tried using different browsers as well - the same thing.

  • sign in to your gmail/google account
  • open this: https://myaccount.google.com/language
  • change your languages. done
  • if it is already set to the desired language (and not working), then change it to any different language, and then back again to the desired language. this way it will reset itself
  • Beside brevity, what are the differences of this instructions of those on the help article linked on the question? – Rubén Jun 23 '18 at 14:23
  • I opened that link and it says the default language is English - no other languages are defined. – Lost Crotchet Jun 23 '18 at 15:16
  • @LostCrotchet just change it to some other language and then change back on your desired language – user0 Jun 23 '18 at 16:58
  • @LostCrotchet glad to hear that – user0 Jun 24 '18 at 1:14

    @Rubén those on the help article linked on the question are outdated and non-valid. this link in my answer is "direct-override" type. – user0 Jun 24 '18 at 1:19
