How to Change Microsoft Edge Display Language?

The Microsoft Edge supports multi-region and multi-language as part of globalization. It allows changing the default display language for menu, options, and settings within the browser to display in native script. We can choose the language preferences and adjust the priority of the display language as per our requirements.

Recently, I was part of a team that had a few foreign delegates. During the course of the meeting, my laptop was being used by quite a few people. Since most of them were from foreign countries, English didn’t seem to be their stronghold.

So when it came to browsing the web, the built-in Edge translator and the Google Translator managed to checkmark most of the requirements.

However, the real issue arose while trying to understand the browser’s settings and various menus. Because each of the browser’s functions was still in the English language, it was hard to understand.

Fortunately, Microsoft Edge does provide an option to change its display language to the one of your choice. With the help of which, we were able to completely streamline the workflow and be in sync with the rest of the foreign members of our group.

The benefits of an app or software supporting numerous languages could be plenty and help globalize easily.
