Google has become our dearest friend since we ask almost everything from it. But what if it could speak our language? Of course, there is the ability to change Google language so that Google search results will be displayed in your own native language. There is a simple method you can use to change the language that is displayed on Google to make this search engine more comprehensible for you.
Why to change Google language?
Google is a smart search engine which allows many possibilities for its users. When a user uses this search engine and types in a word a phrase and searches for it, Google uses the user’s IP to detect his/her geographical location and display the results in the user’s language to better cater for the users’ needs.
This process is completed in a smart manner and makes the user feel more comfortable while using Google and navigation through search results. Additionally, finding users’ location by Google helps display results that may be more user-friendly and tailored to users’ needs. That’s why sometimes the search results in a particular keyword may vary for different people.
When you change your IP using an IP changer such as a proxy server or VPN, Google will detect your new location based on IP data and displays the results in a language which is in the context of your IP address. That’s why sometimes Google’s language changes to languages such as Dutch, Russian or German. As such, if you turn off your VPN, Google’s language changes to its original language, which is normally English.
Change Google language
Sometimes, even when we turn off our VPN, Google language does not change and it keeps displaying in a language that is not desirable for us. For example, if Google default language is a right to left language, the search results will be displayed from right to left which might be somehow confusing for the user.
One point you need to remember before you change Google language is that you first need to be logged in to your Google account and if you do not have an account, you first need to create a Google account. Once you have signed in to your account, you can go on to change Google language from its settings easily.
Once you have logged in to your Google account on your web browser, you can take the following steps to change Google language:
- Login to your Google account on your web browser.
- Use your web browser to visit Google and tap your name icon from the top of the screen.
- Tap the Google Account option from the opened menu.
- On the ‘Account Preferences’ section, choose ‘Language and Input Tools’.
- Choose ‘Language’ on the next page.
- On the next step, tap the pencil icon next to the displayed language and choose your desired language from the list of languages.
By taking these steps, the language displayed on Google will change for you based on your location so that everytime you use Google with that particular location, the results will be displayed in the language you have chosen.
