Hi guys,

 

How do I change admin center homepage language? 

I am getting Lithuanian admin center homepage (I'm from Lithuania) no matter what. I have tried to change profile settings to use English only in profile settings

Capture1.PNG

But when I go back to the dashboard it keeps showing Lithuanian.Capture2.PNG

 

It starting really to annoy me and I can't figure out how to deal with this. Have you managed to change your dashboard language?

It uses the browser language settings. You can also change it via https://portal.office.com/account/#settings (though those settings might not be available in some cases).

OK, installed different browser and I get the English admin center!

I do not have an option to change langugage settings in https://portal.office.com/account/#settings so I guess I will use workaround to work with office 365. 

Internet explorer and MS Edge seems to pickup region from computer settings and determines the language automatically, but still minus karma points for not allowing to change the language easily as in any webpage.

YES ! Thank you very much ... I had tried everything ... I don't know why I did'nt think of this solution.

For synced accounts, is necessary change the On-Premises attribute on AD named "preferredLanguage". Force the Delta sync with AADConnect and test again. See the reference: https://www.codetwo.com/admins-blog/how-to-change-language-in-office-365-portal-in-hybrid-environmen... Regards,
