Everything on Amazon just switched to Spanish. Anyone else?

So weird. The Amazon site on my browser just switched to Spanish. All copy and product descriptions. The words in the banners. "Cart" says "Trolley". Is this happening to anyone else?

Que pasa, hombre?



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

There is a language setting for the site, somehow it got switched.

At the top of the page, just to the right of Amazon's search box is a flag icon that lets you change the language between english and spanish.

I read Spanish so it looks fine to me.

No, wait, that's just English. Never mind.

Hah! Thank you. It somehow got clicked by accident. Even when it was clikced to Spanish, the American flag was still showing. Must've been a slip of the mouse. I quit the browser to let everything "rest" in the voodoo sense of the word. But it was still Spanish after I relaunched. Clicking on the flag and selecting English worked. Thanks again, it would've drove me loco.

You're not alone, happened to my wife a few months ago, so I knew exactly what you were experiencing from when I was figuring out how to fix it for her.

This thread was a good laugh, thank you all for that!

Maybe that just indicated that you were still in the Norte Americano store.
