- Go to the bottom of your Facebook Home page.
- In the bottom left-hand corner, right after the Copyright notice, you will see a link listing the current language of your Facebook page.
- Click on the link and choose one of the many languages that Facebook offers!
You can easily change it back -- or to another language -- when you want.
This is also helpful information to have if you travel internationally.
For example, if you are in a foreign country and sign into your Facebook account, you may find that everything appears in the language of the country you're in because Facebook's servers are reading your physical location from those servers. And, therefore, it assumes (not always correctly) that it knows the language you should be reading.
Simply follow the same instructions to change Facebook back to the language of your choice.
Many different web sites do this -- Google included -- so sometimes it's good to find out how to change these settings before you travel so that you know where to go, no matter what the language is!
