If you’re a person who has trouble reading the text on Facebook, there’s a good chance that you’re also a person who speaks a different language than English. This means that you need to change the language in which you see all of your Facebook posts, status updates, and notifications. Thankfully, changing the language on Facebook is incredibly easy. Here’s how to do it.

What language do you want to see in Facebook?
The first step to changing your language on Facebook is figuring out what language you actually want to see there. This is simple enough. All you need to do is log into Facebook, click on the menu at the top-right of the page (this may vary by device) and select “Account Settings.” From there, you can toggle between English and your preferred language.
If you have multiple Facebook accounts set up, your language choice will be different for each one. If you want to switch back to English, that’s a one-time operation. If you want to switch to a different language, that’s a whole different story.
Change your language preferences
If you’re changing your language to something other than English, you’ll also need to choose your preferred language when you first sign up for Facebook. This is where it’s important to know your Facebook audience. If you don’t know what language they speak in their country, you’re probably going to end up with posts in a language that none of your followers can read.
The best way to find out what languages your followers want to see on Facebook is to ask them. Chances are, if you’re a person who speaks a language other than English and you see posts in that language, your followers also speak that language.
If they don’t speak the language, you can use Facebook’s language tools to help you change the language.
Change your language settings
If you’ve chosen your language preferences and you’re happy with them, it’s time to change your language settings.
To do this, log into Facebook once more and click on the menu at the top-right of the page. From here, select “Account Settings.” From there, you’ll be able to toggle between your language preferences and your language settings. From here, you’ll be able to choose which posts you see in your language.
Now that you know how to change the language on Facebook, it’s time to decide which language you want to see there. If you want to use a different language, you’ll need to change the language on your account.
You’ll probably want to use the same language for all of your Facebook accounts if possible. If you have a different family in each country that you live in, you’ll probably want to use the same language for all of them.
If you have the option to create multiple Facebook pages for your different businesses, you should probably use the same language for them, too. After all, you want to make it easy for your followers to follow your various pages. Otherwise, they’ll be confused and might miss out on some of your posts.
