Hello ThereSystem AdministratorCommented:
Registry: ApplicationLocaleValue

Windows registry location for Windows clients: Software\Policies\Google\Chrome\ApplicationLocaleValue

It configures the application locale in Google Chrome and prevents users from changing the locale. If you enable this setting, Google Chrome uses the specified locale. If the configured locale is not supported, 'en-US' is used instead.
Example value: "en-GB"

1. Get Google Chrome ADM/ADMX template (official info here)
2. Copy the files of an administrative template to the directory where they should be stored. (step-by-step here)
3. Open the Group Policy Management Console ->  User and Computer sections of Policies->Administrative Templates there appeared a new Google folder containing two subsections: Google Chrome and Google Chrome – Default Settings
4. gpupdate /force
