Hi- I live in Mexico but would prefer to see all web pages in English, my first language. I can add that into preferences for my home page, but I would like all my Google accounts to recognize that. The most difficult thing is if I go into help for Adwords, the page comes up in Spanish. Then I get a double-translated page, when Google translates the original into Spanish and then Google translator translates it back into English.

I have Adwords, Analytics, Webmaster tools, all with the same login. and I want everything in English. Is there a master setting I am missing? Thanks!

I don't think there is a Universal way to change the language for your Google account - but I definitely agree that there *should be. I mean, c'mon Google, it wouldn't be that hard to implement. However, it can be done - the long way: after you have logged in, you can edit the Settings for each Google application you use. For example, log in, go to Analytics, click Settings at top right, and underneath 'Edit My Account Information' (or the spanish version thereof) there is a dropdown box to select your language. Change that to US English. Outside of following this sort of procedure I don't think it can be done.

I did read this via Google Answers: "Keep in mind that while the Google Accounts homepage is available in all Google languages, individual Google products may not be available in all languages."

Good luck!

I also found that here: https://www.google.com/accounts/ManageAccount you can set a lot of them at once. And they were already all set to English, and location to USA.

However, the help section seems to still pick up my IP address and give me Spanish whether I like it or not! I guess that's the down side to living and working in paradise. Thanks for your help.
