pastorlonnie,
 
Don't know if you've made any changes since you posted your note, but I'm looking at your website and am seeing it all in English.

I'm having the same problem.  I'm the administrator on our calendar and it is suddenly in German to my view, but others can see it in English.  Any answers?

We are still experiencing the same problem, although we keep selecting English, we have seen the calendar in German, French, and Spanish.  I have no idea how to fix the solution. It seems to have  something to do with whatever calendar is listed on google as the top calendar but this is only a guess.  Please post back if you find a solution.

And in both cases, you always see G/Cal (ie at http://www.google.com/calendar) in English (US, I'm guessing), but when viewed on a website, it displays in a different language - but not for everyone?

try adding  &hl=en or &hl=xx where xx is the two character language code onto the end of the URL [AKA web address] to
change the language of the buttons

my embeded address is this http://www.google.com/calendar/embed?src=lynnvkelly%40msn.com&ctz=America/Los_Angeles" style="border: 0" width="800" height="600" " frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>....where in that line do I place "&hl=en" or "&hl=xx"?
 
thanks for your help.

This is suddenly happening for me too.  I have the same question as Lynnkelly -- where in the url do I put the &hl=en  (assuming that en is for English).  Diana

I have the same problem.  When I went to the embedded code on my blog, I don't see where to put the &hl=en either.  Please help!

For those of you having this difficulty with an embedded calendar, you need to insert a command to control the language displayed in the code.  I used the Google configuration to tool to generate my calendar code but it does not automatically insert code for controlling the language displayed.
 
I inserted &hl=en into my code just after the time zone setting and before the style and size settings and it looks like this:
 
ctz=America%2FChicago; &hl=en" style=" border:solid 1px #777 " width="800" height="600" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>
Be sure to insert a semicolon after the time zone followed by the language command (; &hl=en).  Also make sure the command is within the double quotes.

I am having the same problem, though a little bit different.

My embedded calendar is displayed in English.  When you click on an event, again it shows up in English.  HOWEVER, when you click on the MORE DETAILS link, you are taken to a Google page where the details are shown, but the page is displayed in another Language.  I'm seeing an Asian language that looks to be either Chinese or Korean?

Any ideas on how to fix this.  I added the &hl=en into the code, but it's not helping with this specific issue.

Any ideas?
Re: Language display problem in google calendar - chose US, displays german. pastorlonnie 7/23/09 6:13 AM
I have changed the code but it still displays another language  - sometimes english but more often it is spanish, french, or german - what gives?  

It would be nice if Google tech support would respond and fix the glitch as we have been unable to resolve this issue.  This issue was reported back in March!

This problem seems to be related to your IP address. This morning I accessed my public calendar while connected to a UK-based ISP and the page displayed in English. Later on I was connected via a VPN to a server in Germany and needed to look at my calendar which then displayed in German. So I guess that without the explicit language setting in the URL Google looks at your IP address and from that assumes you want to see the calendar in the language of the country in which that IP address is located.
 
Clever, but maybe a little too clever in some cases.

ajsrockstar,

Many thanks for the input.

I've seen this happen before, and had assumed that EVERYone was seeing my calendar in (in that case) German; however, perhaps I needn't have worried so much, and it was probably only me who saw the incorrect language via my PC at work.

My PC and laptop always display the calendar in English.  My iPhone is normally English but switches to German at random.  It's not a disaster but an unnecessary irritation.  All this is in the UK with the location settings on.  It seems to have a greater propensity to do this when more than one web page is open in Safari, but it doesn't happen every time.
Any ideas how to fix it?

Having same problem in US always random PC and laptop in English but my 3gs iPhone changes language at a its whim.
So far I have seen French. German, various Asian characters, and a few others  I can not identify. I have checked the URL settings as mentioned above but they are correctly set to US English. Web search revels many have same problem but Google dose not respond. May have to switch calendar programs once again. Shame I liked Google

I have same problem as hrcampussupply:
"I am having the same problem, though a little bit different.

Because I reside in Spain, the link to DETAILS always shows up in Spanish. The link is specifically for English residents and find this most frustrating. Is there a way to default the DETAILS link to a specific language or not????

I have my server in england and when i embed a google calendar with xml i get it in english, but i want it in spanish,because my web is for spanish visitors only.is there finally a solution for this problem? I can´t use the @rspkor code because i´m using xml.
Re: Language display problem in google calendar - chose US, displays german. TomsonT 3/14/11 4:09 AM
Go to the settings tab and change the language to English. Use a translator like babelfish to translate words you don't understand. All the buttons are in the same place as gmail. Easeh

Very helpful. Thank you. I have been putting Google calendars into websites for over a year and never heard of this until today when a new client had the calendar appear in French.
