This is so annoying!! Why isnt airbnb replying? Reading through airbnb in Hebrew gives me a headache! It's so culturly off and americanized, I can't take it. Don't see any place to change the language settings and already sent them two complaints about it.
I found the solution!!! It's not by default but still...
When you get into airbnb.com, start scrolling, you'll see a button at the right bottom corner of your browser, click that button, it'll lead you to the end of the website.
When you get there, at the right end of the banner, you'll see the language button, next to the currency button.
Hope this helps!
Finding the option to switch the language is pain, but you can force the language by setting the GET parameter "locale" in the URL to the desired language, i.e. https://www.airbnb.com?locale=en will force English.
Had this issue and struggled -- the site would always appear in Russian, which I speak, but do not prefer, e.g. because I want to see the addresses in English and not in Russian. Finally fixed it by going to settings, scrolling down to the bottom and changing the language there.
I had the same problem, it's always showed French and I tried everything from setting in airbnb but didnt work. Until I did the setting in Chrome and the problem fixed. So go to the setting part of Chrome --> Advance--> Language --> Order languages based on your preference --> Delete French or any language that you dont want to show up in airbnb. Good luck.
Same problem here in Malaysia, I understand Malay but there are many terms and conditions which I do not understand in Malay, fix it Airbnb! Give us back our english page!
I understand Malay, but the Malay translations used sound very unnatural, as if someone had used Google translate to provide these translations. I switched my global preference to English, but every time I open a new window, the language reverts to Malay.
