    Setting a language other than the prevalent one in your region?


    Hello, sorry - couldn't find any helpful information on the subject.

    Basically, my problem is that whilst I live in Austria, I prefer my OS language, games and streaming contents to be in English. When selecting language options on my Xbox one and picking English, I don't have the option of picking Austria - only countries
    having English as their official first language.

    So far so bad - I could just pick another country, but now the next problem is that I use an Austrian Visa card and my billing address is in Austria, so when I enter the store, I receive an error message telling me that my account and Xbox one location don't
    match.

    Whilst the games I have so far let me pick English as a language, I assume all movies I'd buy would be dubbed in German, which basically renders the entire movie rental/ streaming aspect fundamentally useless to me. Moreover, there's still the lack of an
    option setting the desired OS language and the correct location at the same time.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

    Change xbox360 language COMPLETELY

    This issue is due to your account region. Despite your console settings your console will download information from Xbox Live including the language causing some of the dashboard to display in your account regions language and other bits in the consoles
    set language.

    There is currently no fix to this other than disconnecting from Xbox Live (which isn't usually a real option).

    Achievements are displayed in a different language.

    Go to "settings" then to "Language & Location" and check your language. It might be in the wrong one.

    Just pinging a reply on this thread as well, there are lots of others just like it, but none seem to have any attention yet. I am hoping that if we are active on enough threads we might actually receive an update on this issue.

    Hello VojtasKraus,

    Thanks for using the Ambassadors Forum.

    First, please check the region and language on your Xbox Console. Assuming you are on the Xbox One, go to Settings -> System then language and location. Select your region and language. Note that you may have to reinitialize your console.

    Other than that, launch your game, go to Options -> Sound -> Spoken Language. Select the one you want. Note that the game only offers a few options for spoken language.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi Mauricioc,

    Thanks for coming to the forums with your question. We understand you have the disk of the game and want the language in Portuguese. First we recommend to check the in game settings. There may be a language setting. Other is what is the language set to on
    your Xbox console? If your console is set to English it will play it in English. You may have purchased an English version of the disk also.

    To check language on the console go to settings>system>language and location make sure both are in your area and Portuguese language than try the game.

    Thanks,

    Brad

    Which country is your gamertag set for? If there is no option to change the language to your local language then that suggests that your gamertag is set for a different country than you live in.
