Hi there, Currently, the language is based on what country (TOS) the user signed up from when the account was created and can no longer be changed. Thanks.

Please remember to accept the answer as "Accepted Solution" if it satisfies your inquiry. Kudos are highly encouraged too! Cheers! Smiley Happy

Is there's no way to change the language to English? I just made a new Yahoo account for my student's contact and spent an hour trying to change the language until I found this post.

 

As a guy who using Yahoo mail for a decade, it's just too confusing reading it with different language, leave alone the weird translation It's just so uncomfortable.

There will be a possibility of changing the language in the future?

Yahoo mail is more stupid now? Can't change back to English? Wasted my time looking for answer which I didn't need to in those days.

I opened my yahoo account nearly 20 years ago in the US.  I have been continually using the english language version throughout years of travel in other countries.  Then a few days ago I stupidly deleted cookies which I guess included the english widget for yahoo.  Now I can't get yahoo back in English, and yahoo help is NO HELP.

I don't understand why this feture was removed, when all other mail providers have the change interface language option. Anway even if my ip adrres is diffrent, the yahoo mail opens all pages, including mail, in a language that i've selected a couple of years back.

I don't understand how this anwser can be a "solution" at all, let alone "accepted solution"... is it supposed to help people to decide on leaving Yahoo mail?

Dear idiots at Yahoo.  Ever wonder why your company is going bust?  I set up a new email account and it decided for no known reason that I want it in French then won't give an option to change it to English (here's a clue how to get it right, I put a UK contact number and am based in the UK).  What a brilliant feature you total morons, promote the idiot who came up with that game changing idea.  Are you trying to destroy your company on purpose, how crap can you make the user experience?
