AliExpress does not have good customer service which you can easily contact, just robots which work unsuccessfully in this case. Also their help is limited. For some reason, the language of their system changed to Spanish in my account. I do not know Spanish.

How can you change the language of AliExpress to English?

  • At least also make English language permanent as the Spanish language is, i think it will be better too that wat – user134293 Sep 12 '16 at 8:36

Simply delete your cookies in your browser (I use Chrome). Specifically, the one for alibaba.com However, deleting all your cookies is usually a good idea.

Some have suggested: when Aliexpress comes up in Spanish just click the English site button on the top right. However, this is only a temporary fix and doesn't solve the problem long term. Just delete the cookie(s).

  • My final solution was to use NordVPN to change my geolocation and language. For some reason, there are bugs in the main system such that the server is giving you wrong languages. To change the geolocation for a moment resolved the issue. – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Aug 3 '16 at 20:55

    Clicking "Go to Global Site (English)" points you back to aliexpress home and not the product you're viewing. – G. Bay Oct 18 '16 at 23:26

This is how to change AliExpress to English.

Usually the problem is that AliExpress detects your country location incorrectly, thus displaying the wrong language -- here are several solutions that you can try (results vary).

Cookie solution

  1. First clear your browser cookies (for aliexpress.com & alibaba.com).
  2. Important; Open the first page in English after clearing cookies.
  3. Now AliExpress should remember English as the default language.

More detailed instructions here (source).

VPN solution

The permanent solution is to use a VPN to change your "geolocation" -- so that you can obtain a working IP address from the nearest English speaking country (US, UK, etc).

Not any VPN will do, especially when doing security sensitive shopping activities (a) VPN needs to be trusted (b) it's better to have many server locations to choose from.

Other solutions

This is the most obvious but can fail, click on the "Go to Global Site (English)" link:

AliExpress change to English link

You can also try to obtain a different IP address by contacting through other means, such as your phone connection, friends house, neighbour, etc.

  • "Go to Global Site (English)" is so pain in the ass, as it always tries to switch back. – AgentFire Aug 19 '18 at 16:40
  • It doesn't work, it goes to the main site but when you search a new product it's shown again in the wrong language. – skan Aug 29 '18 at 0:03
  • If for whatever reason that link is unavailable on the page, navigate to some other page (like My Orders for instance). You'll have to figure this on your own if you are stuck with non-english version web page. From there you can find that link... – deostroll Jul 5 '19 at 11:33

Try to edit and lock those cookies:

aep_usuc_f  =  region=AU&site=glo&b_locale=en_US&c_tp=USD
intl_locale  =  en_US
xman_us_f  =  x_l=0&x_locale=en_US

On the top right corner, there is an option

"Go to Global site (English)".

Just click on it and your problem will be resolved.

Download the app. Just click the red box with 🔽 icon, even though it was in Spanish the app installed in English.
