View report builder in english

Ilona Krammer (159345) | asked Sep 21 '16, 9:08 a.m.
Where does the report builder get its language setting from? I have a browser set to English, I have an English operating system - and I'm still getting the thing in German. And actually it's not exactly obvious what people where trying to translate and say all the time so I really need an English version to find stuff - besides we have some English only people at our site and we need to change the language setting for them, otherwise they won't be able to work at all.

unfortunately I couldn't find anything at all about that topic in my search. I hope someone can point me in the right direction. It's quite infuriating really...

Ilona, the localization is derived from preferred browser language. This is a standard.
See this questions answer if you want more details: How to switch localization to English on machines with different regional settings.

I had read that the language is retrieved from the language the browser was installed in, but indeed there was a setting (that I had never needed before) to then set the language again. I completely overlooked that - thank you!
