Chrome erroneously saying my site is Spanish. (8 posts)

    All of the sudden Chrome is saying my site is in Spanish and asking if I want to translate it. None of the other browsers are doing this. Anyone know what happened to cause this? I have reported the error but am not sure this will be corrected by Google.

    Uninstalled and re installed chrome then cleared cache. It still pops up. Also pops up on my laptop and wife's computer. Only happens with chrome. I have told the pop up to never translate this page but don't want everybody going to my site to see this.

    I can't seem to duplicate the issue in Chrome. Google doesn't offer me any translation alternatives, and your site seems to load and read just fine for me in Inglés. Don't seem to be getting any of the pop-ups, either.

    Just a personal observation: Some of those photos possess an intriguing degree of empathy.

    Put this in your <head></head>:

    <meta name="google" value="notranslate" />
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en" />

    Thanks for checking James. Seems that some are getting the translation prompt while others are not. I'm wondering if location has anything to do with it. my mother in law is getting it and she resides in Ca as well as us.

    Thanks for the photo comment, it is encouraging.

    Put this in your <head></head>:

    <meta name="google" value="notranslate" />
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en" />

    Thanks for the code. I'm hoping I don't have to use it though as I would like a non english speaking person to have the choice to translate.

    Hmm, interesting - certainly sounds possible given Google's ability to "know all" - maybe also based on user's history in Google's data?

    just to add i have seen this happening a lot lately when I use Chrome on a lot of random sites, then Translate will open up at the top of the page, and the page is English??
