Hi Romana,
I'm sorry, could you please specify what exactly you mean by the word "label"?
Did you mean "translate" from French into English? or what?

...and, I guess, you wanted to say "UNfortunately"?

Yes, of course I wanted to say unfortunately now it seems I cannot speak English as well hahaha... :-D

Labels - I mean the words you can click on - e.g. account, forums... also the names of the countries above photos ... sometimes they appear in French.

Thanks a lot for your reply

Hmm... this makes me more intrigued!

The names of the countries in French are, most probably, only in the French version of TE ( http://fr.trekearth.com/ )

But very often members use French words in titles to their photos... and these words (and Notes to the photos) can be only translated with the help of a translator (an Online translator)!

On the Forum there are often discussions in the French language, and you can not "switch" it to English.. only copy and paste into a translator - to read what they discuss there!

this is my idea... I am sorry if I did not understand something again!

Now it's me who don't understand anymore what's the problem. I guess that what Romana means it's the French version of TE ( http://fr.trekearth.com/ ), which can be accessed by means of my first reply.

I will be completely baffled!
But it seems to me that the problem is not in the French version of TE

Probably Romana should make a screenshot and attach it here as an example illustrating the idea?

Wink translation

There is a way to install an instantaneous translation by Google and you'll have every page translated, without any click. And you can activate and/or deactivate this tool, whenever you want, in a kind of toolbar. I don't have this tool but I think it is not hard to find on Google website.
Good luck,

Default language

I think I understand the problem and it looks like another bug. Just to the right of your user-name or sign-in label there is a white box with a drop down menu so you can change the language in which you view TE. Mine is set to 'English' but if I wanted to change to another language it won't do it. All it does is look like the page is changing but it reverts immediately to 'English' again. I can understand the frustration if you are inadvertently set to a language you don't understand.

Thumbs up Thanks - Francisco (XUXAO) has hit the nail

Thank you very much for your effort to help me. It seems Francisco was right (clever boy), I accidentally browsed the French version of TE (fr.trekearth.com instead of www. trek....) I did not notice it so I was very confused.

Friendly regards

So, it's as I said in my previous reply. I guess the labels don't make much difference, but sometimes I change to other languages when I know or suspect that members write different titles and notes in other languages. Sometimes I do it, I make different notes in different languages for the same photo.
