Google have set my language to dutch but I hate it for a million reasons and one of these is when something is wrong I could get a lot more help if I get feedback from Google in English. Is there a way to set my language to english and preferably keep it there.

I am talking about sites like google+, Developer Console, Play store (Somehow this is in english), Drive, etc.

  • The language options only stay set if you log in with a google account; if you open a google page without logging in, you get the default. If the play store is in English, it's probably because you set your browser to log you in automatically. – Mark Wallace Dec 11 '15 at 23:30

You can change the language for all of Google's products by setting your preferred language at this URL:


To change the display language for Google Accounts, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to My Account.
  2. In the "Account preferences" section, select Language & Input Tools.
  3. Choose Language
  4. To change your language, select edit Edit .
  5. Choose your language from the dropdown box and select Ok.

    You're welcome :) If you are not logged into your Google account and would like to use Google search in English (by default, Google redirects you to the country specific site) use http://google.com/ncr (NCR stands for No Country Redirect. It'll redirect you to a 'generic' Google search website) – Vinayak Dec 11 '15 at 20:58
