    This might be trival for someone that understand code but impossible for someone that don't. The default language of my blog is Swedish and it make sense "behind the blog" as I don't understand all technical terms. However the site is in english and it works well with one exception. The comment system from Jetpack is in Swedish (for the visitors) and I want it in english. I have understood that Jetpack has a file called
    in which I can see under

    $params = array(
    'lang' => get_bloginfo( 'language' )

    How to I shortcut so the comment system is in english (I can even live with the fact that the jetpack is in englsh)

    Instead of editing plugin files, I would recommend that you use another plugin to change your site language and your dashboard language.

    Here is an example:

    Thanks, first of all thanks for the reply, most appreciated. I start o think - maybe the most straightforward way is to change from WordPress 3,4 Swedish to WordPress 3,5 english and just learn the dashboard in english the hard way. I guess it looks the same but english instead of swedish. I guess that would solve all my problems that the visitor see Swedish languange in some of the Jetpack widgets???

    The plugin I linked to earlier will allow you to use both languages on your site: your dashboard will be in Swedish, while the rest of the site will be in English.
