How can I get Facebook back to English?
For some reason it's presenting a lot in Portuguese, and the spell checker has gotten aggressive to the point of uselessness. One answer said that it would take 30 days before I could change the translation setting.

Is there any way to get it back to English?

Okay, when you are on your page, all the way to the right is a down pointing triangle. Click that and then click on settings.

That will bring you to a page where along the left side, you'll find Language. Click on that and you can change back to English

Thank you very much.

That wasn't the solution, but it kept me noodling around long enough to find the Facebook translation controls under the trending box.

For a long time, whenever I mistyped my LiveJournal password, it would tell me so in German. Granted, this isn't a problem for me, but it was weird. It didn't give me anything else in German, other than posts by my German friends.

LiveJournal still sometimes presents to me in Spanish. For years, it did so exclusively. Happily. , i am fluent in that language.
