In the past hour, about half the script on all ProZ pages has turned into Hindi (or something similar; forgive my ignorance). Only ProZ is affected; all other sites I visit in the same browser are fine. It doesn't matter what text encoding I choose; most of the text is garbled beyond recognition (for me, anyway ).

Now I just hope I hit the right button to post...

Hi Grayson,
Maybe you clicked on a link given by someone who as using the Hindi localized version of the site, and ...it stuck? I don't know what else might have happened. At the bottom right corner of this page (or any other proz page) there's a white pull-down menu. Open it and select English. I hope it works!!!

Was a browser problem after all... Feb 6, 2010

...for whatever reason, that tab in Safari switched to the garbled mess, but the rest of my tabs were unaffected. Wish I knew what I'd done, but probably never will.

ETA: mmm, maybe not a browser issue after all. This tab is working fine now, too, and I've done nothing.

Maria, you're brilliant! Feb 6, 2010

Thanks - I hit the back button on this browser tab to get back to the Hindi version, and indeed, the white menu at the bottom was not set to English. Must have hit the touchpad inadvertently while the cursor was down there...though it started when I did a Google search; the strange characters were in the search result itself. Guess Google cached that particular page on ProZ in Hindi.
