Amazon is an international online retailer and national borders often have little impact on the company’s reach or popularity. That means Amazon supports many languages; if English is not your preferred way to communicate, you can generally set Amazon to use whatever language you want to use.
The only limitation is that Amazon doesn’t make every language available in every region around the world, so you need to see if the language you prefer is compatible with where you live.
How to change the language on the Amazon website
1. Start a web browser and navigate to the Amazon website. Log into your Amazon account if you’re not already signed in.
2. At the top of the page, move the mouse over the Flag icon, which is to the right of the search box. After a moment, you should see the language drop-down menu.
3. Choose the language you want to use. The options might be limited by region. In the United States, for example, you can only choose English (EN) or Espanol (ES).
If you don’t see the language you want, you can change the region. In the language drop-down menu, click Change country/region. In the Select your preferred country/region website drop-down menu, choose a different country and then click Go to website. Amazon will now open in a new tab with the regional language or give you a choice of regional languages.
