How To Change The Language Settings From Filipino To English in Google Chrome

Last Saturday, I downloaded Google Chrome to be my official browser on my net book. After it was installed I realized that the official language used in my Google Chrome is in Tagalog or the official language of the Philippines, Filipino. It doesn't mean that I don't love my own language but honestly, it was kind of annoying when the Tagalog words were popping up on my screen. Tagalog is not my first language for I speak Cebuano and it's rare for me to speak the official language.

I have no problem with Filipino but I admit I can't understand some of the words because it's really hard to comprehend specifically on computer terms. I say it's too wordy if converted to Filipino and I am too lazy to read Filipino in computer terms.

A friend of mine, Rachellyn, replied at my status and she gave me a step by step process on how to change the language settings.

-click settings (the wrench icon located right under the close button)
-choose the 'mga pagpipilian' or options
-a google chrome option window will appear ('google chrome mga pagpipilian' window)
-go to the 'sa ilalim ng hood' tab
-scroll down and look for 'nilalaman ng web'
-there you should find 'baguhin ang mga setting ng font at wika'
-a 'mga font at wika' window will appear
-go to 'mga wika' tab
-then you should be able to find 'mga setting ng mga wika at spell checker'
-select the language you want to be default for your google chrome or click 'Ingles (Estados Unidos) for English
-click 'Ipakita ang Google Chrome sa wikang ito' and close all windows of Google Chrome to RESTART.


That's it, now my problem is now solved.

  1. Hello..I'm from Pinas.
    I was able to install my google chrome with the Filipino language as default. The problem is, I am having trouble reading Filipino language. So, I would like to change it in English.

    I have followed your steps but I encountered missing tabs. I can't find "wika ng google chrome" ...
    so I can't continue..

    please help.
