Gmail is set to the wrong language

If your Gmail interface is in the wrong language, take these steps to fix the problem:

  1. Sign in to Gmail.
  2. Click the gear in the top right.
  3. Select Settings.
  4. Click on the language dropdown menu, the top entry on the first tab.
  5. Select your language.
  6. At the bottom of the page, click the right-hand button to save your changes. If your language has been set to a right-to-left language like Hebrew or Arabic you'll need to click the left-hand button.
  7. In the window that pops up, click the right-hand button to apply this language choice to all of your Google products. Clicking the other button will apply this change to Gmail only. In Hebrew or Arabic, you'll need to click the left-hand button to apply to all.
