You should add back the option to change languages and content into account settings. Not being able now to change the language is so anoying. For example, even if my ip address is different from the one I've created my account, and my yahoo mail language is one I've selected a few years back, the yahoo content page and the mail app dosen't change the to the current location, as i read in yahoo help. so please put back the option to change the language and also the yahoo content. will be very helpful. thanks

Tried for an hour to set up a new email via English language directions. Way too much time. We're going to another search engine. Very backward thinking. Maybe China has taken over to mess with English language users.

Living in Thailand, but not reading Thai, as I am not a native Thai. Not able to use yahoo mail, I bet there are millions around the globe with the same problem. One of those many websites who believe everyone reads and writes the local language, if he's living in that country.

Wow, one year and thousands of comments and request later, and still the Yahoo AI knows what language is best for you! How sad..
Yahoo was great once, but since everything is tied to money and they can not get in enough, Yahoo is destined to die. (Or to sell all our data to keep money flow).

I am using English mail in the USA then I visited Taiwan in April 2018. Yahoo changed it to Chinese mail interface. Now it won't change back to English after my trip. Does Yahoo assume I can read Chinese? This is terrible since I can't change it back to English.

yes. I'm agreed with all the users here. I don't know why language for my email is already being set to Bahasa Malaysia. even though I am Malay and Bahasa Malaysia is my mother tongue, I prefer to used English as the communication medium for my email. As such, when all the terms are being set to Bahasa Malaysia, I found it difficult for me to understand the overview of the email and it make me frustrated of it. Please change your term and conditions so that we as the user can opt for the language we prefer.

Why did the display language of my Yahoo Mail get changed to Chinese and set to Yahoo TW? I set up my account in US. Like other users, I can read Chinese, but I need to have the option to use English instead of Chinese.

People move around to where their career takes them.
Please give us the option to change language in YahooMAIL.
It very unfortunate, if we have to say goodbye to YahooMAIL

Why did the display language of my Yahoo Mail got changed to Chinese and set to Yahoo TW? I mean I can read Chinese but it's just very weird your system automatically changed my default language. Also, why is there no option to update your language back to English? I have been using my Yahoo Mail in English since I created my account 20 years ago. I am wondering if it's because my last name is a Chinese name that defaults the display language of my Yahoo Mail to Chinese.

This is really frustrating. Judging from the dates on this posts, it shows people have been complaining about this issue for a long time and there seems to be nothing done about it. We have no idea why this option was disabled in the first instance, but whatever reason that is, it's stupid and not well thought through. People migrate all the time, does that mean they must understand the language spoken in their new location before they can use yahoo mail? Please do something about this and FAST...

I fully agree ... why not a change language option?
Eduardo Rudas commented
I created my account may years ago, I changed my language while I was abroad, now I want to switch back to my original language and I can't, and even it's not using the location feature to show the local language as it says in the help pages. Please, add an option to change the interface language in Yahoo Mail.

How stupid is it not being able to have en English Yahoo Interface??!?!?! OMG!!! I am Greek, born and raised in Greece, speaking Greek fluently but I want my Yahoo Interface in English. Having to understand Greek terminology for words such as Inbox, Deleted, Archive and such, simply sounds and reads stupid and pointless. Please at least let us have the English Interface option. English is spoken worldwide! I am used to have my email in English. Please do something!
Haris Lesmana commented
English language option, please?!
Kim TGD commented
Same for for me, I'm not fluent in the language my mailbox is set to. Even more stupid: It is set to the language that isn't even spoken in the region I live. I live in the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium. Yahoo automatically changed the language to French, which is spoken in the other half of the country. Doesn't make any sense.
