I travel often and sometimes the language in Google Chrome changes. It’s ok for Spanish but not so much for other languages.

Other times, I need to modify the language settings to work with a colleague on a project. So, I switch the language in Chrome to their language.

If you find yourself in either situation, here are the steps that I use to change the language in Google Chrome back to English.

Time needed: 5 minutes.

    Choose “Language”.

  4. Select

    Tap or click “Add Languages” then check and add the language you want.How to change Google Chrome's language settings 4

If the language remains the same then clear the cache on Chrome to see the latest changes.

And, if you are using a mobile device like an Android or an iPhone, you can change the language settings under “Settings” > “Language and input“.

This allows you to adjust the language for Chrome but it will also adjust the language for other apps and the system on a whole.

Another thing that I like to do is to check the traffic to work using Chrome. Maybe you’ll like that too.
