  4. Find the language that you want to use.
  5. Optional: If you don't see the language that you want, click Add languages. Choose the language that you want, then select Add.
  6. Next to the language that 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 that you sign in, menus will show in the language that you chose.
    • Show web pages 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 web pages, click Offer to translate pages in this language.
