This guide will show you how to customize Apple Safari web browser language settings on your MAC. Unfortunately, Safari doesn’t have the ability to change web browsing languages without also changing your entire operating system language. It is probably easier to simply install another browser like Google Chrome for MAC, Opera for MAC or Firefox for MAC. If you still want to change Safari’s language settings along with your entire MAC operating system language, then continue with this guide.
Watch the video above or follow the text guide below.
How to change web browser & operating system language settings in Apple Safari on MAC O SX
- Open System Preferences on your MAC from the bottom menu bar
- Under the Personal heading click on the Language & Text icon
- You should now see a list of languages in order of preference, top to bottom
- To change the order of preferred languages: Click on a language and Drag it up or down (top being 1st preference, second being 2nd preference and so on)
- Once you have finished setting your language preference, Close the System Preferences window
- Now Click the Apple Logo and log-out of your MAC
- You can now log back in to your MAC with your new language preference
- Now open a webpage (preferably Google.com) to see your language preferences working (it should be in your chosen language, if not then that website likely does not offer the webpage in your chosen language)
