Recently I came across the same problem. And I solved it with Chrome extensionModHeader. I configured and it works:

I do prefer English text but due to having a German IP address Microsoft activates the automatic translation on every new page load which gives me a yellow box with a German translation of the text I am currently hovering over with the mouse.

So setting your browser to prefer English language websites should fix this problem. W3C has an overview how to do that on different browsers here:

When you hit the Original radio button at the top, you see English, with German in the yellow hover box. If you visit the original English site, you dont see a translation, not even on hover. You switch to English by replacing /de-de/ in the URL with /en-us/. As in

Im using NoScript addon with Firefox (actually Waterfox), just forbib , the translator will be turned off. I think you can use other plugins in other browser to forbid the domain too. NoScript is a must have addon for any serious web user, and UserStyles, of course.

We feel the best Stack Overflow questions have a bit of source code in them, but if your question generally covers a specific programming problem, a software algorithm, software tools commonly used by programmers, practical, answerable problems that are unique to the programming profession then youre in the right place to ask your question!

Usually there is a language link at the bottom of the page where you can change language (even though a permanent site specific setting would be much nicer).

Now, in the address bar, just typems [SPACE]. As soon as you press the space, it will prompt you withSearch on MSDN US:. Just type your query now. For instancems stringwill redirect you to the MSDN-US version of the search results forstring. Of course you can change the title and keyword.

thank you, is very annoying this functionality!

This must be the accepted answer. You prompted me to find a similar extension in chrome and now it works like a charm. Thanks.

Im sure the other common browsers expose that kind of functionality too. On Firefox, I used to plug custom search engines on the search bar.

MSDN uses the prefered language from your web browser settings.

This happens regardless what language is initially set in the right upper corner and regardless of whether I am logged in or not.

@Wernfried Your browser is saying Hey, please give me the website in my local language, MSDN does exactly that (even if in an annoying way). If you want different languages for different websites thats really a problem for the browser to solve.

@marcwellman: So did it work? I have the exact same problem here. Plus, the German MSDN translation has all kinds of errors in it that can turn around the meaning of the text completely. A Firefox add-on like this sounds good.

Found it! I mean, its 2016, 3 years late, and maybe they just added it recently, but when you scroll all the way down theres a small button in the left bottom corner where you can choose language you want to use (more specifically a country youre from).

What solved my problem was to change google search settings to prefer English, rather than my native language. Go togoogle search settings, setWhich language should Google products use?toEnglish, then inCurrently showing search results in:clickEditand check other languages you are likely to search in.

This is due to theAccept-Languageheader:

Thank you @Etienne for your support 🙂

I almost always open msdn through a search in google. It most of the time offered me site translated to my local language (through a part of the address with locale), sometimes accompanied by original (English) version next to it. If I click on the original language link, it does not translate anything, so it is notautomatic translationbased on my localization.

for me online documentation which is essential for me to do programming falls under the category mentioned above: … software tools commonly used by programmers …. But I dont want to argue with you, you stated your point and I stated mine. I am fine with that.

Yes, but for other pages I may prefer my local language.

A Display this website in a specific language add-on that uses the Accept-Language mechanism would be even better. That way no URL rewriting would be necessary at all.

Instead of extensions, which will consume memory and are a bit overkill for that kind of thing, you can use a custom search query.

It will also change the UI language for google. I know it might be a high price to pay, but I believe it is worth it. If you search for a query typed in given language, results will most likely result in this language pages anyway.
