Why does gmail keep putting Bulgarian as the language when I live in Macedonia. 3 Recommended Answers 146 Replies 1919 Upvotes

Whenever I get a notification from google services they often switch to the Bulgarian language, I don't live in Bulgaria and I don't understand a word of Bulgarian, I live in Macedonia and speak the Macedonian Language, and no matter what I do Google keeps shoving a language I don't understand down my throat.
Needless to say this has become quite a nuisance. 
I have changed the language to English because that is what I prefer using on a computer however notifications and notification popups often "default" back to Bulgarian which I don't speak

Same problem here.
I can't even log in to my account without changing the language to English, and it keeps changing back to some language I don't understand.
PS.What happened to Google in Macedonian ?

Gmail is not available in Macedonian.
To change your language in Google products see this page.
Also try this (may be covered above?)  Chrome settings > Show advanced settings > Languages > Language and input settings
Google may also use your IP details.
Changes may take 24-48 hours to be reflected.  Please be patient.

Most recently this happens when i try to log in to NVIDIA (GeForce Experience) using my google account.
Also it happens in other use cases but this is the most recent i can replicate.
