My comment section of facebook is listed in a foreign language


Facebook is available in 70 languages.
The language settings can be easily changeda few clicks and your whole page will be displayed in the selected language.

This can make changing it back difficult at first glance.
If you've inadvertently switched languages, going back to English is easy if you know where to look.

Log in to your account and follow a few simple steps that work regardless of the language you've changed to.

Visit facebook.com on your PC language settings are not available on the mobile site.
Enter your email address and password into the fields at the top of the page, then click the "Log In" button.

Scroll to the very bottom of the page.
You will see the word "Facebook" followed by a copyright logo.
Your current language is displayed next to the copyright symbol.

Click on the language a popup window appears, displaying all the available languages.

Click "English," then select your desired version of English.

How do i restore my garmin nuvi 205 to its original factory settings? i have selected a foreign country by accident as default


With the satnav turned off press the bottom right corner of the screen and turn it on. This brings up an option to reset it. There may be an easier solution however that will not lose you your favourites etc. I presume the problem is that it's in a different language and you want it back to English. Resetting it will not do this. To get back to English;
  • Press TOOLS (The spanner symbol on the bottom right corner of the screen which shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP) This may take some trial and error if it's in a foreign language but should be possible)
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner icon) or LOCALE (the blue icon) on some models that don't have a settings menu)
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips icon)
This brings you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD. Press each one in turn and select English or American English if you're in the USA. With the VOICE setting you may have to select a name rather than English. If so select the name of a person from an English speaking country.

I hope this solves your problem.

I have the nuvi 205W series in a foreign language and can't get it back to english


  • Press TOOLS (The spanner symbol in the right bottom corner of the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol) or LOCALE (the blue symbol) on models that don't have a SETTINGS symbol.
  • Press LANGUAGE (The lips symbol)
This takes you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
Press each in turn. The VOICE will give you the option to select a voice by name and country. Select one that's from an English speaking country to get the voice prompts in English.

Press TEXT LANGUAGE and select English or American English if you're in the USA.

Press KEYBOARD and Select English. This should solve your problem.

The menu is in a foreign language, which I can't read. How do I return it to English?


Turn on your clip
Go to settings (the eq symbol)
scroll to system settings
scroll to lanquage
Change to english

If you are unable to decipher the current foreign lanquage enough to find these menu options

Update the firmware again and you will be presented with the choice during the update process

Good luck!

In a foreign language, How can I change it back to english?


  1. Press TOOLS (The spanner symbol on the bottom left of the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  2. Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol) or if your model doesn't have a SETTINGS icon press LOCALE (The blue symbol)
  3. Press LANGUAGE (The lips symbol)
You will see a page with 3 items on it. VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
The voice symbol will have the speaker's name beside it. If the voice is in English it will show the name in English. If not press each icon in turn and change the voice to an English speaking voice.

This will leave only 2. Press each one in turn and change them to English or American English if you're in the USA.

Foreign languages rather than english


Hi there, sorry it took so long for someone to get back to you. Try this to change the language.

Go into the setup menu. (the symbol with the wrench #2)
Scroll down to language.
From there, just follow the prompt.
