I created a Google Group and set the Group's primary language to English (United States). My Google account preferences is set to French. When I invite a member to the group, he receives messages from Google in French language. If I change my account preference to English then the sent messages are sent in English language.

It is an inconsistent behavior. Normally if I set Group's primary language to English (United States) I expect that the sent messages are in English. The language of the sent messages should not be the one from my account preferences.

Am I doing something wrong? Someone can help?

  1. Go to http://groups.google.com
  2. [optional] Open your group
  3. Click on the settings button > Help and Feedback
  4. Click on Send Feedback
  5. Fill-up and submit the feedback form.
  • I did it. Waiting for a reply from Google... Thank you
