Why did the language change on Craigslist.org?
The default language can change for a variety of reasons. Here are the main causes:
- Link Variable – If you clicked on a link with the wrong language variable, it’ll automatically change the translation on the. For example, even though this link is for Tokyo, you can see the “lang=en” in the URL that will set the language to English: https://tokyo.craigslist.org/?lang=en&cc=us
- Search Results – Sometimes the search queries you perform might have Google yielding results in a different language. This will cause the default language to switch when viewing the page.
- Your Location/Region – Craiglist takes a guess at which language is best for you based on your location when you view the website.
