How do I view InsaneJournal in a different language?
If you speak English, and this FAQ is displaying in another language, please click here to view this FAQ in English.
InsaneJournal uses your browser settings to determine what language to display.
To set your language preferences for InsaneJournal only, log in and visit the Site Options page. If you have not previously set a language while logged in, this page can also be reached by clicking on the translation icon with a speech bubble under the InsaneJournal logo on all of the main InsaneJournal pages.
After selecting your language preferences, log out of InsaneJournal and then log in once again. This is to ensure that your settings are properly stored.
If you wish to have your browser present you with your native language in all cases, without having to set your default language, you can change the settings in your browser. However, this will affect sites other than InsaneJournal.
Setting your language only affects InsaneJournal system pages; individual journal entries will always appear in the language in which they were entered. Not all system pages are available for translation, and not all the available pages are translated into every available language.
Many InsaneJournal system pages can be viewed in another language by adding "?uselang=XX" to the end of the URL for the page, where "XX" is the standard code for the language you wish to view. To specify English, use "?uselang=en_LJ". If an InsaneJournal system page already has an argument appended to it (for example: https://www.insanejournal.com/update.bml?mode=full), then to view it in English you would need to add "&uselang=en_LJ" to the end of the URL (https://www.insanejournal.com/update.bml?mode=full&uselang=en_LJ), changing the question mark to an ampersand.
