Changing the language in Google’s Developer console

If you are (like me) located in Germany but prefer to use the Google Developer Console in English, I invite you to navigate to https://play.google.com/apps/publish/ now and then try to change your language settings. I’m waiting here…

You’re back? What do you mean, it’s not possible? Turns out you’re almost right. I talked to Google support and indeed there is nothing in the UI that would allow you to switch the language. However there’s a workaround. Just append “&hl=en” to the URL and you’re set!

Try for yourself:

https://play.google.com/apps/publish?hl=en

Of course this will also work with other language codes and is an easy way to override the automatic language detection.
