My PC's language is German and in this site the word processor is set to German. I can't change it to English so that my mistakes are automatically corrected.

Can I fix this somehow?

    Shouldn't that be like a browser thing ? I don't think it's site-related Commented Jun 3, 2018 at 7:06

    This should probably be on the main site rather than on the Meta. I think. This question kind of enters a grey area, but I still think that it belongs on the main site instead. Have a good day! ;-)

  • @ParanoidPanda I disagree - we are not talking about using Ubuntu but about using AskUbuntu - should be on topic on AU meta.

  • @guntbert: Oh, ok, I supose so, but if this is not actually specfic to this site, nor Ubuntu, then surely it doesn't really belong here at all? And perhaps should be a generic question on one of the other sites. Unless they are using Ubuntu, in which case it should be on the main site and on-topic there so that it can be relevant for other websites.
