Why are my emails in a different language?

If you are subscribed to emails from Facebook, sometimes you may see that the emails are not in your preferred language. The language of the emails sent by Facebook eventually changes according to the user’s location.

This mostly happens when you are traveling or using a VPN service. Facebook automatically adapts to the language of the region you go to. Let’s say you went to Germany then you will get the mails in German.

While using a VPN service, you will see that the language of the emails and app changes to the host country’s language. This can be corrected by simply turning off a VPN or just changing the language on Facebook back to English again.
