Recently when I open a page with Google Chrome it displays a French version. For example, if I download 'the best 100 films', it lists the titles of the  films in French, although the rest of the text is in English. Formerly when i opened the page the titles are in English. 'The Godfather', displays as 'le Parraine' etc.

from your chrome windows access chrome://settings/

Under Languages, access Language and input settings and look for the required language.

You can also verify the regional settings for that PC.

Hope it helps,

Hello Dear Michael,

Is this happening from the beginning or somehow language changed?
If its happening since beginning then i would say please install Google Crome by download English version. Or if it was working in the English and somehow changed please see the settings below.

Go to -- chrome://settings/
Then Click on Show Advanced Settings at the bottom.
Click on Languages --> CLick on Language and Input settings

See do you have English at the left Column and if you dont have English (United State) mention there please add from the bottom of the same page.

My chrome changed to the French language, without any prompts from me. What's up with that?
