It worked for me like this:
- Go to edge://flags/
- Search for "language" without quotes
- Find "language localization"
- Change from "default" to "enable".
- Restart your browser
- Go to edge://settings/languages
- Click on "Add languages".
- Choose your language
- Click on the "3 points (more options)"
- Check the box "View Microsoft Edge in this language".

@luizruiz Yeah, that's one of the few mysterious choices implemented by the development team that baffle me a bit. Like the setting for modifying the default search engine, which is buried somewhere under a heading that is totally unrelated. (under Services, if I remember correctly)

Exactly! well that's right, this same function was well hidden, and now disabled. Anyway, as we're user insider preview we'll have more news or not every time we update. I changed the language to my native language, which is Portuguese, I live in Brazil, and now I can not return to the default language of the browser, English.

the "flag" approach did not work for French. the flag is no longer available. the "settings" approach lets me add "French" (my default for Windows itself) and "English Canada". in both case the "tick box" (use this language) is greyed out. like it was with flags. the only "active" tickbox is for "English".

I'm surprised that you encountered this problem (if I understand well what the problem is... which can always be questioned!)
I have my choice of language set as 'French'. The checkboxes are greyed out, yes, but the default 'English' is selectable. I imagine that If I now revert to English, the 'French' checkboxes will become active again.
In fact, i'll try right now.
Just tried it out. I switched back to 'English', which is again the language of my interface, and 'French' checkboxes have become selectable, again. The whole process is smooth, very logical and simple. I suppose @luizruiz has had the same experience with 'Portuguese'.
Now, i'll revert to 'French'.
