Exchange Admin Center language

Depending on your computer language settings, Exchange Admin Center can take those and open in a language you actually don't want to use.
You'll Google that this can be changed if administrator/ admin user has mailbox by openening OWA settings and changing Regional parameters.

But usually Admin user does not have mailbox or you don't want her/him to have it. You will search again and find that you can add mkt=en-US (as an example) to the URL of the Exchange Admin Center (https://yourexchangehostname/ecp?ExchClientVer=15&mkt=en-US)

Third option you have is opening Internet Explorer settings (I am using Windows 2016)


Click languagesClick Set Language Preferences

Add language you want to use by clicking Add language
Use Move up or Move Down options to put desired language on topClose Internet ExplorerOpen it again and login again to Exchange Admin Center
