All of a sudden, whenever I open any Google Page now, (whether logged in or not), it appears in the language of Hindi and I have to use Google Translator to Translate into English and use it.

How can I fix this? How can I have English as my default Language and never have any page of Google appear in any other language?

  • In what state are you? What languages do you speak? I'm curious if jquery.uls selects default language better: if you visit this page for test what language do you see in top bar?

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 languages by themselves. Like f.e. the Google Play Store.


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 current Google service:

Add ?&hl=en to the url and submit


If 1st and 2nd solution of Nabil didn't work, verify your language settings in your web browser. In example in Chrome go to:

chrome://settings/languages and check the settings.
