Somehow my page is now in Portugese. If I go to the language choices, English is in a lighter font and not clickable. What did I do and how do I get the page back to English?

Thanks much! George

OMG! I "cleared the cookies" and now I am back to normal. Yeah! Thanks Mike Srengel for your suggestion in another post!

Okay...now it is in Estonian!!! What's up with this???

8/23/2012 at 7:25 AM

Well that's funny...it translated "Estonian" to "English" in the above post! Time to take a break!!

Sorry for the trouble! We're aware of the problem and have an engineer investigating.

No it's not. Everything you're posting, Michael, shows up on my screen in English, but it is complete gibberish ;P

Using Chrome?
Double-check if you have automatic translations enabled.

I asked about this language switch problem the other day in the technical discussion
http://www.geni.com/discussions/105873?msg=811561
It only happened that one time on one particular url. I did a disc cleanup rebooted and it has not reoccured.
I was just getting used to Slavak too.....ttfn

Not sure if the problem still persists, but I'm using Chrome and have "cleared browsing data" including cookies and everything has been fine since.

Michael Mccann - 23rd cousin twice removed is really getting out there...wonder if it is legitimate.

I'm not convinced the problem was fixed. I was able to reproduce it twice yesterday, using the "Add Family" link on a profile page, but reproducing it didn't actually lead me to the cause. We'll continue to work on the problem today.

We've released what we believe is the fix for the switching language problem. If anyone experiences this problem again, please send me an inbox message so I can attend to it right away.

oh and if you're currently on the wrong language, you should be able to click "English" (or your language of choice) at the very bottom of this page, in gray.
