How do I change the language on PoF?Page 1 of 2    (1, 2)
Right so, I live in Spain but I'm an English speaker, and the site automatically comes up in Spanish for me. I haven't been on in a few months, but before, i was able to change it to English, and the people that where suggested for me where also English speakers in my area. Anyway, I have absolutely no idea how to change the language now; I've been searching for ages and can't find it, so if anyone could help me that would be great! :]

...Okay so I've no idea what just happened, but the site just logged me off, and when I logged back in, it was changed to English for me, without using Google Translator. Thanks whoever/whatever that was! :D

Folks, the language setting has nothing to do with PoF, you operate it from your browser.

As froggy said. POF uses the default language which is set in your browser.

In my version of FireFox for example you select tools/options/content

The exact key strokes or clicks is dependent on the exact browser and version you are running. It is not very hard to locate this info usually

Drivel... I've tried both Chrome and IE9 in IE9 I've only have en-gb in the languages under options > general, I also tried using the setting "encoding" option from right click.

Still only get POF in French.

The only way I've managed to get the site in English is to log in then delete the "fr_" from the fr_start.aspx... part of url

It comes back on some clicks but you can just delete the start of url page bit again.

Wonder if this because the settings are "Western European"- possibly wouldn't occur in US?

I'm also English and living in Spain. My POF is also in Spanish. Before you start saying it's nothing to do with the POF settings, my browser IS set to English. Everything appears in English EXCEPT POF! More to the point, despite the fact that the orginal post was dated months ago, why hasn't a 'Techie' responded??

It is possible for the application to detect the country of origin through the ip address of the user...it would then direct the user to the appropriate language site for that country. Sounds like something that would happen very high in the application hierarchy life web.config so hard to override this behavior if an override is not programmed in. I would suggest contacting the POF team about this issue they are the only ones that are really going to know.

You know not what you say Cowboy. When I am logged in to my account, everything is in English...and when I click on my profile it is still in English. But when I try to edit my profile, The instructions for editing are all in Spanish, even though what I have typed previously is still in English. This all started happening today.

Yeah it's not the browser settings, they haven't changed and even when I double check them, they're still in English. But no matter what browser I use, my POF is defaulting to French. There is something else going on...
