By default, the browser will always display the website in the language that occupies the first position in the pecking order.

Therefore you would have to move your preferred language to the top of this list so that the browser can display the sites in that language. For that, click on the More horizontal 3-dots icon situated next to your language and select Move to the top.

Choose Edge Language Preference in Language Settings

The browser will display all its functionality/menu in English along the same lines. If you wish to change this, then click on the three horizontal dots next to your desired language and select Display Microsoft Edge in this language option.

Bottom Line

The Microsoft Edge offers the different regional and local language to choose from to set as the display and settings menu. We can add more than one language and set the priority preference.

It also offers the translation feature that automatically translate the page content into desired selection.
