Get Facebook In English If Your Language Has Been Changed

I have seen various cases where the default language of Facebook gets changed automatically. Most users are reporting that their language has been changed to Arabic, Polish, French, Vietnamese, etc without any reason. Go here and read all the comments to get an idea what I am talking about.

The most popular way to change the language is to go at the bottom of the page and then change it by clicking the Language link. But this method is reportedly not working for most users, when they change the language using this method, it gets changed back to some other language.

So here is how you can fix it, go to this link:


http://www.facebook.com/editaccount.php?language

and simply change the language to English, after about 2 seconds the page will reload automatically and the default language from now on will be English. :)

I believe this language change took place according to people’s geographic location after Facebook announced new translations. Anyways, the above mentioned link will definitely solve your problem. Enjoy!

    Unfortunately, the tip didn’t work. everytime I loaded the path, it reverted to login

      Okay try doing as follows:

      Delete Your Browser Cache
      Delete All History

      After you have done this, type facebook.com and it should load in English. If it doesn’t then go the the link I gave above and you should be taken to the language option.

      Obviously you need to be logged into facebook before clicking the link I wrote in the article, in this way you won’t be reverted to login.

        Didn't work. The language inside FB is English. But the login always revert to a different language whenever I reboot the PC.

          this problem can be solved by opening the facebook in another browser.

          try with google chrome or mozilla and it should work as it worked for me..
