Can someone please help me? I did something wrong and now my page has everything in a different language- e.g Shenim: NUk po etc. Thank you. It seems the titles have changed and I do not know under which topic this should go either. Thank you

Language drop down menu Jul 27, 2014

That happens sometimes if you click on a link to ProZ from outside (e.g., from a Google search).

Try the language drop down menu at the very bottom of the home page, on the right hand side.

Bottom right hand side Jul 27, 2014

Thank you so much, as I was panicking. I managed it from this same page, bottom, right hand side. Thanks so much for your help

Remove language prefix Jul 27, 2014

A particular language can be forced by adding a three-letter language prefix to links, thus overriding your user settings. I. e., this page’s link is www.proz.com/forum/linguistic_diversity/272603-language_change_for_proz_page.html and you see it in your default language (I guess, English), but if you change it to bel.proz.com/forum/linguistic_diversity/272603-language_change_for_proz_page.html, you’ll see it in Belarusian. External links (like Google search results, as pointed by Emma Goldsmith) very often contain such language prefixes, especially when you search via a localized Google site (such as google.fr). Thus, make sure that URLs start with www rather than a language code.
