    Preliminary information

    Prima di enter the live of this tutorial and spiegarti how to change language on youtube, it is good to clarify that on the famous video sharing platform it is possible to act on two different parameters: it is possible to change the language of the service or it is possible to change the settings relating to the location.

    Changing the YouTube language allows you to change the text displayed in the service interface, but this option does not affect the language of the videos being played. Changing the location settings, on the other hand, affects the content shown in the Recommended and Trending Videos sections.



    To understand better, let's take a practical example. If your intention is to change the language from cittàn to English, all options related to YouTube will be displayed in English (e.g. in the search bar at the top you will see "Search" and no more "Search").

    However, the recommended and popular content shown on the main YouTube page will not be changed and will continue to be offered based on the location you set. This means that if you have set the language in English but as the location you have chosen city, you will be shown more frequently content in cittàn. To change this content, you need to change the location.

    Having clarified this, you should know that by accessing YouTube via the browser it is possible to change both the language and the location. Using the app for Android and iPhone / iPad devices, however, it is not allowed to change the language (unless you change the system language on the device in use). Furthermore, it will be useful to know that the changes are applied exclusively to the browser and device in use: by accessing YouTube from another computer, smartphone or tablet, even with the same Google account, you will have to change the language and / or location again. All clear? Well, then let's proceed.
