Change Language In Facebook To English(Pirate) Mode

Since facebook relies on it’s users for translation, a bunch of Pirate fans have created a language dubbed English(Pirate). It adds an overall fun to the facebook profile by changing the words such as Home to Home Port, Friends to Mates Y’might Know, etc. Below is the screenshot showing the new language in action.

To change the language scroll to the bottom of the facebook page and click English(US). Finally from the list of languages, select English(Pirate) and you are done.

selecting English pirate language

Even through this language is in Beta and was added in late 2008, the community make changes to the translation ever now and then. So, if you are a pirate or would love to be one, give this language a try. Enjoy!

UPDATE: For those looking to change their default language back to English if it has been changed to some other language, please go here.

        I’m hoping this will help, since I just did it. Go to where you think is your friends page. At the bottom left next to Facebook 2009, you will see a word click on it. Then select English UK. Try it, it works. Good luck

      If your Facebook language is Arabic, you can change it to English by clicking the ‘Arabic’ link on the bottom-right side of the page. Just before the ‘Facebook (c) 2009′ in the footer.

  • Heini Ovasonur

    Hey gays

    If youre in an arabic-spoken country this wont help you, cause facebook switches auto to the language spoken in the current country.
    Im located in The Faroe Islands. I switched to arabic just for fun, and I wasnt able to change back to faroese. There was NO english stuff to press on.

    I was able to change back by deleting all browsing history; located in “tools”.

    • jhana

    i know i can tell what languages facebook, should not translate.. like this article is about! but how to remove languages not to translate. i have 3 languages, facebook does not translate. danish, english and spanish. but i wish facebook to translate spanish. but can not remove the setting like in this artikle. my facebook is on danish, and that is what i set it to. i one some years ago told i could english and spanish, but i can not enough spanish, so i would like it to translate spanish. 3 languages are right now picked: danish, english and spanish. i would like to remove the spanish! this article does not mention this problem. maybe it is because i right now is in spain?? dont know..
