How to set preferred language? (not interface language)



  • Hi to all old school Opera Fans! In Vivaldi is there a way to set a preferred language, i.e. not only for the interface but for the webpage content too? thx for listening

    No easy ways. In Vivaldi setting you cant.
    Website mostly look at a special HTTP header sent by browser.
    You can (as a example) see these headers sent at http://echo.opera.com/

    My Vivaldis header is:```
    Accept-Language: de-DE,de;q=0.8,en-US;q=0.6,en;q=0.4

    
    But you can change the HTTP header Accept-Language with some extension, i hope.
    Try it ~~(i did not test)~~:
    _Quick Language Switcher_ https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/quick-language-switcher/pmjbhfmaphnpbehdanbjphdcniaelfie
    Yes, works!
    If you open Vivaldis Extensions page and select Options of extension "Quick Language Switcher", you add more languages, that can be set with the button.


  • Thank you, will try…
    cheers

    Same problem here. There is no way in the Vivaldi settings to set your preferred website language, which for example causes redirects to localized Google, YouTube etc. pages. The Quick Language Switcher seems to change the whole interface language, which is not what I (neither apparently the thread starter) want.
