View a specific language edition

Google often redirects you to a News edition that corresponds with either your Google interface language or your IP address location. If your Google interface language is Italian, for example, you'll automatically get the Italian Google News page.

Alternatively, we use your computer's IP address, which is frequently the internet address of your Internet Service Provider (ISP), to determine your location. We normally redirect users outside of the United States to one of our region-specific sites (e.g., for UK users). This lets you easily access region-specific news headlines.

If you'd like to see a different Google News edition, you can use the drop-down menu that appears at the top of the News page. The link will display the name of the edition you're currently viewing. To change your edition, click any of the options listed in the menu. For example, to switch to the German edition, select "Deutschland" from the drop-down menu.

If you have a personalized Google News page, you’ll see that personalized edition by default. You can only personalize one edition at a time, so if you switch to another edition and personalize it, you’ll lose the settings on the original edition.

Follow these steps to switch editions and personalize:

  1. Go to the Edition menu at the top of the page.
  2. Select the edition you want.
  3. Click Personalize at the top right corner of your Google News homepage.
    If you don’t see the Personalize button, you’ll need to sign in to your Google Account.
  4. Click Yes if you are asked whether or not you'd like to delete any existing personalization settings in your current edition.
  5. You can now personalize your new edition.

Additionally, you can set a bookmark for your desired edition. For example, to access the US edition of Google News, set a bookmark for You can see the permanent links of other editions by viewing the full list of Google News editions.
