  2. Select Settings Settings and then Advanced.
  3. In the "Languages and input" section, select Language.
  4. Find the language you want to use.
  5. Optional: If you don't see the language you want, click Add languages. Choose the language you want, then select Add.
  6. Next to the language you want, select More More. Choose how you want to use this language:
    • Show menus in this language: Select Display Google Chrome OS in this language, then select Restart. The next time you sign in, menus will show in the language you chose.
    • Show webpages in this language: Select Move up until the language is at the top of the list. If you'd like Google Chrome to automatically translate webpages, click Offer to translate pages in this language.

Note: Not every language works with your Chromebook's menus.
