Wow! Looks weird.
So, anything not coming via a Google source is the language you want?
But stuff via Google is in Dutch?

Any help in answers to this person’s query: https://support.google.com/chrome/thread/1876320/chrome-keeps-defaulting-to-the-wrong-language?hl=en

Edit: My 1st link looks too chrome specific. It may help but a Google language link is https://support.google.com/websearch/answer/3333234 (there’s a tab for android, iPhone & computer)

I had a similar problem in France recently with Google maps on my Chromebook, all place names and info bar on lhs were in french despite settings for English.
Never did get to find the cause, fortunately android phone was okay and reverted back to English once back in UK 🤷‍♂️
No help I know but I'll be watching with interest

A localised setting is overriding your choice. I think that’s covered in one of the links in my post - I remember reading about that local override in my search 🤔

Edit: not a link above. It was help I noticed unrelated to the OP: https://support.google.com/websearc...es-are-in-the-wrong-country-or-language?hl=en
Sounds like a bug - with a workaround or two

Are you using a VPN or have you got one turned on?
I use a VPN to protect my location on the computer and the flag on my profile is Germany.

Thanks for replying I am looking at all your suggestions but nothing is helping at the moment. Pappajohn yes as I said my settings are all correct first language English second french ( as I live there). I do use a VPN but have done for ages this only happened 2 days ago. I've never been to Denmark. Tearing my hair out now. 🤬
