How to change language on Google Chrome
Add a new language
Changing the language used in Chrome only takes a few steps, but keep in mind that it only applies to the Chrome interface. For instance, if you change the default language to French, all text within the Chrome interface, such as menus and settings, appear in French. The change does not apply to web content.
The following instructions are based on Chrome 90 for Windows 10 and Chrome OS. And although the user interface has slight differences in appearance, you can (generally) still use this method in the Chromium-based version of Microsoft Edge. This method does not work with Chrome for MacOS.
Step 1: With Chrome open, click the three-dot Customize and Control Google Chrome button located in the top-right corner.
Step 2: Click Settings listed on the drop-down menu.
Note: The Settings panel is also accessible by typing “chrome://settings/” in the address bar.
Step 3: Select Advanced which is listed on the left.
Step 4: Click Languages listed on the newly expanded menu on the left.
Step 5: On the right, click the down arrow icon next to Language to expand the list.
Step 6: Click the blue Add Languages link.
Step 7: A pop-up window appears. Click the box next to the language you want to add, followed by the blue Add button.
Step 8: The new language now appears on the Languages list. Click the three-dot More Actions icon to the right of each language to reorder or remove as needed.
Note: Moving the new language to the top of the list does not make it the default.
Step 9: Once you’re done, close the Settings tab. All changes save and update automatically.
Display the new language
After adding the new language, now it’s time to set it as the default.
Step 1: As instructed in the first section, navigate through Settings > Advanced > Languages and click the down arrow icon to expand the Language menu.
Step 2: Click the three-dot More Actions button to the right of your new language.
Step 3: In the pop-up menu, click the box next to Display Google Chrome in This Language to set the new language as your default.
Step 4: Click the Relaunch button now displayed next to the new default language.

Troubleshooting language changes in Google
With so many ways to change your Google language across devices, services, and products, you're bound to run into issues. Here's a few common ones and how to fix them.
|If your language update didn't work: Sometimes it will appear that a language update hasn't occurred. You can try restarting your Chrome browser, your Google app, or logging back into your account to see if that updates the changes. If not, try clearing your browser's |
If your language isn't listed: While Google has a number of languages available for users, it doesn't encompass everything that exists.

You can add a secondary language using just about every language update method, and it will be visible beneath your primary language.
