How do I get headings to show up in English in the browser?

I've set the language to English on the Google calendar page, but it shows up in another language on my website.

You may have the wrong language indicated in the embed code. Try grabbing the code again and/or comparing. There should be a ctz= string at the end that indicates the location.

Post the website if you want us to have a look.

Thanks for the response. The  ctz string on my web page is "ctz=America%2FChicago". The url to the calendar web page is http://www.gdcdm.org/calendar.htm . As you can see the calendar headings are in a different language. Can you see what the problem is?

It shows up in English for me. It may be a browser issue. You could clear cache/cookies and see if that fixes it.

I wish this was an answer but it is not.  I have my calendar setting set to United States and US English, but he month and day settings when the calendar is called from my website are in Spanish I think.  Button says HOY.  I have tried going in and changing these settings but this does help.  When signed on totthe account the headings are in English.  The calendar entries are in English  when the calendar is called up and I am not signed on.

It appears you have exactly the same problem with language on the Google calendar as I do. Except mine is in French. I didn't have this problem until I got a new computer with Windows Vista and Explorer 7.0. Could this be the problem? Are there settings on the browser that can be changed. Everything I've seen is set in English, but there must be something hidden somewhere that is causing this default to another language on the calendar.

I have also checked my ctz string. I'm using XP and IE7. My Google calendar is embedded in Drupal. It shows German labels for anonymous and authenticated users. Unless - I am signed on to the Google calendar in another tab in my browser. It doesn't work if the website and the Google calendar are in separately launched browser windows, only if they are in the same window. http://www.qcuu.net

add &hl=en or &hl=xx where xx is the two character language code  onto the end of the URL [AKA web address] to
change the language of the buttons

THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!  Finally, a solution to the problem. Once I figured out exactly where to put it in the url string - it worked!  Thank you again :- )

Adding the &hl=en string fixed the monthly view of the calendar. However, when I click on "details" on any entry, it's still in German. What else can I fix?
Thanks!
