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 see 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 the United States to one of our region-specific sites (e.g. http://news.google.co.uk for UK users). This lets you access region-specific news headlines easily.

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

Follow these steps to switch editions and personalise:

  1. Go to the Edition menu at the top of the page.
  2. Select the edition that you want.
  3. Click Personalise in the top right-hand corner of your Google News homepage.
    If you don’t see the Personalise button, you’ll need to sign in to your Google Account.
  4. Click Yes if you're asked whether or not you would like to delete any existing personalisation settings in your current edition.
  5. You can now personalise 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 http://news.google.com/news?ned=us. You can see the permanent links for other editions by viewing the full list of Google News editions.
