Force node-red to English?

#1

Hello,

I am in the process of moving my node-red from a raspberry installation into a docker container on a more powerful machine.
I got the container up and running, still need to migrate data. But what struck me first is that it appears localised (German) which I don't like at all. How can I force it to appear in English?

thanks!

Thanks! Maybe that was introduced in a newer version because my raspberry still runs an older one.
Changing language priorities in the browser helped.

I got the same problem as jaeti01 after I upgraded to Node-RED to 0.2. I am using chrome browser. Changed the language of the browser to English but Node-Red-Editor is still in German. If you are used to English it is very annoying to get it in German :-(.

We only introduced the German translations in 0.20. We assumed it would be a welcome contribution, but it has generated a surprising amount of negative feedback.

Previously we only had English, Japanese and Chinese translations - so there had never been a request for the editor to ignore the user's own preferred language (as the browser identifies) and provide it in another one.

In the short term, we will provide a option via the settings file to force it to a particular language.
In the long term, we will add an option in the editor itself to set the preferred language.

Actually changing the language order in chrome solved it for me.
And i appreciate the effort of translation. It’s more my personal preference to have development environments in English.
