A sudden chage of language in youtube

I have had the language change suddenly in Youtube, from English to German and I have no idea why. I cannot seem to find any way that I can change it back to English again. Can you help please?
Many thanks

Try deleting/clearing web browser cache and cookies first. 
then click on youtube logo, top left. Next to logo are your Country and Language settings. Change those accordingly. 

i.e. "Worldwide (All) | English".

I also recommend you to use IE 8 beta 2 or higher versions of internet explorer for you not to get that kind of error again.

Can you please change you tube back to english you tube is all in a diffrent langauge that i dont understand

Go to your profile page on -- simply click on your YourTube username there.

At the very bottom of the profile page that has loaded, right next to the Youtube logo, is a drop down menu. This menu is for languages. Click on the drop down, select the language that you want to see YouTube in from the resulting Choose Your Language popup table that should appear just below it.

Now..please be aware that in non-Latin lettered languages (like Greek, Russian, or Chinese) you may not be able to read initial menus so that's why I am telling you where on the site these items are located.

How do i change the language to england

Create an account on youtube once you have done that you can view youtube in any language of your choice. Other solution is to get the Google translate addon for your browser and translate the webpage into any language of your choice.
