Is it Just me?

I have noticed that my blogspot instructions have become German (I think) recently!

For example, what use to say View Blog (in new window), now appears as:

Blog anzeigen (in einem neuen Fenster),

I have reviewed my language settings and my option is still English (Welsh not being available) so why the German posting messages?

Is anybody else experiencing the same difficulty, or is it just me?


  1. Yes, I noticed it yesterday, but as I'm a German speaker who was, among other things, married to a German for 6 years, speaks regularly via Skype with German friends, listens to German radio etc etc...my point is that it could easily have been there for days without my noticing it!

    Everything else is in English though. When did you first notice?

  2. Its started happening to me this morning - its happening in both Linux and Windows so I don't think its a hijack. It happens in both FF and epiphany browsers. Do you use google-analytics? I installed the other day perhaps it has set a cookie.

    I'll be interested to see what it is - perhaps Blogger is just getting international

  3. I noticed it this morning. I thought 1 possibility was that someone had hacked my blog and changed some of my settings but it turns out I was wrong.

  4. Yes, happened to me too this morning.

  5. Mines been like that since Friday
    it also has bits of latin appearing Are we being hiked
    even the instructions under this box are german now

  6. Happens in Apple as well. I'm glad it's not just me - I thought it might be my stay in Austria having tripped the settings somehow.
