Language settings

You can change the language of your search engine interface (for example, the Search box and other elements) at any time. This affects only the user interface; it doesn't affect the results returned by your search engine. To restrict the returned results to a specific language instead, add a Language restrict.

The language setting All languages is equivalent to English.

 

Change the language of an existing search engine:

  1. On the Custom Search home page, click the search engine you want.
  2. Click Setup, and then click the Basics tab.
  3. In the Language section, click the option you want.

Note: You can include sites of any language in your search engine, regardless of what language your interface is in.
