How to Change the Default Languages in IE9

Many websites are offered in more than one language, and modifying the default language in which they display can sometimes be achieved with a simple browser setting. In IE9, which supports over 90 global languages, you are given the ability to specify these languages in order of preference.

Before a Web page is rendered, IE9 will check to see if it supports your preferred language(s) in the order in which you list them. If it turns out that the page is available in one of these languages, it will then be displayed as such.

Modifying this internal language list can be done in just a few minutes, and this step-by-step tutorial shows you how. First, open your IE9 browser.
