[How-To] Change your display language in Gmail

Owing to its huge user base, Gmail, the e-mail application from Google is available in multiple languages ( infact, its more than 37 now). The default language is usually decided based on the entries filled by you during registering the new user id. This language setting is then used by Gmail to display to you various menu items and other information links.

However, you can change the display language at your will by following the steps outlined below

1.) Login to your Gmail account and click on the link which says “Settings”

2.) In the General Tab under Settings, click on Language and select the language of your choice from the drop down.
