Hello Mateo! I can guide you through the process of changing the language settings on YouTube. Here’s how you can do it:

Open YouTube: Go to the YouTube website and make sure you are signed in to your YouTube account. Changing the language settings requires being logged in.

  1. Access the Language Settings: Scroll down to the bottom of the YouTube page. In the footer section, you’ll find a language selector. It is represented by a language code (e.g., “EN” for English) and a country flag. Click on the language code.
  2. Choose your Language: A language menu will appear with a list of available languages. Scroll through the list and select the desired language that you want to set for YouTube. Click on the language to select it.
  3. Save the Language Setting: After selecting your preferred language, YouTube will automatically update and display the interface in the chosen language. To save the language setting, scroll down to the bottom of the language menu and click on the “Save” or “Apply” button. This will save your language preference for future visits to YouTube.
  4. Verify Language Change: Once you’ve saved the language setting, you should see the YouTube interface and navigation elements in the new language you selected. The content, including video titles and descriptions, may still appear in their original language, as the language setting primarily affects the platform’s interface.
It’s important to note that changing the language setting on YouTube will not automatically translate the video titles, descriptions, or subtitles into the new language. The availability of translated content depends on the creators’ or viewers’ contributions.
Additionally, YouTube may use your location or browsing history to provide relevant content suggestions, even if you change the language settings. So, if you want to see content from a specific region, you may need to adjust your location settings separately.

That’s it! You have successfully changed the language settings on YouTube. If you want to switch back to your previous language or change the language again, you can follow the same steps.

I hope these step-by-step instructions help you modify the language preferences on YouTube. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask!
