How to change the primary language on the web and mobile apps

0 0

Amazon operates all over the world with dedicated websites for many countries. The Amazon website and app display in a language relevant to your region. However, you can set Amazon to use another language from the website or the mobile app. Amazon doesn’t make every language available in every region. If you want to switch to a language that’s not common in your region, change your region. We show you how to change the language on Amazon using various devices, including a PC, a tablet, or a budget Android phone.

Before you get started

Before you change the language on Amazon, note that some website features or communications may not be available in your preferred language. Also, changing the language settings on the desktop site does not carry over to the mobile app, and vice versa.

If you’ve chosen a preferred language but the website displays in a different language, make sure you’re logged in to the same Amazon website where you set your language preference.

To set Amazon in a language that isn’t available in your region, change your region. This change doesn’t apply to your mobile app. Instead, Amazon opens the store with the new region and language in your mobile browser.

When you switch your region, things like sellers, currency, and available products might change depending on where you choose. You’ll see prices in the currency of the region you pick. Amazon shows products that can be shipped to your current region unless you also change your account’s address.
