So tired of switching back all of my Google products from Tagalog back to English

After coming back to Philippines, all of my Google apps like Gmail, Google Search, Chrome Webstore, Youtube, etc just keeps switching to our native language here in Philippines (Tagalog) because of their feature of “Geographical Postion language switching” and they know that I’m currently in Philippines now.

Sigh, I’m so tired of switching them back from Tagalog back to English. The translations are correct but I just feel akward the translations are only partially done and most of the time they just don’t make sense when they are in mixed of Tagalog and English (Taglish).

And another thing is that they provided me with a Tagalog localized of the page, and then Chrome will offer me a nagging prompt toolbar on top asking me that “This page is in Filipino Would you like to translate it it”.

So its like double translation bug, a normal user will just get so confused with these kind of stuffs, and most of us Filipino will really just prefer the english language.

Google should be able to remember, if my preferred language is English, across all their products since I am logged in to my account on all of their products/sites I visited via either the browser cookies  or based on my Account settings.
