Discord is an instant messaging platform that lets you share voice, video, and text chat with friends, gaming communities, and developers.

Its constant updates with new features keep users’ experience fresh and engaging. However, it seems that the recent update has broken the language settings.

Discord users unable to change language from English

Many users (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8) have been reporting an issue where the language on Discord is always set to English.


@discord are there any languages besides English? Because it currently looks like Discord (on desktop and web) is always showing most text in English besides the selected language.

@discord the language in my discord app is glitched, i cant change it. It is always in English

Discord users have been unable to switch to their preferred language ever since the recent update.

According to reports, the issue is currently affecting platforms like Android, PC, and the web version.

The issue is quite frustrating as some users are now prompted to use translators, which can be a cumbersome task at times.

Here’s the official word

So far, Discord support has asked the affected users to reinstall the app.

Hi there! Can you please try reinstalling the app? If this doesn’t help, please let me know!

It seems reinstalling the app fixes the issue on Android as well.

if you are experiencing wrong language appearance on android discord app, just delete the app completely and re-install it. It will solve the issue.

However, the issue with the web version can’t be fixed at the moment since a reinstall is not really possible on it.

We hope that the developers fix the issue where Discord users are unable to change language from English at the earliest.

We’ll keep an eye on this matter and update this story to reflect noteworthy information.
