So Annoying! Fix Por Favor!

“You’re viewing Fiverr in Español. You can change this preference below.”

That is what I get “every time” I log out and log in or I am auto-logged out and come back.

I know I am from “Spain” and I know I speak, read and write “Spanish” but I do “NOT” want to view Fiverr in Español!

The auto translation that Fiverr offers is as pathetic as the attempt to reach out to the Spaniard community, with all due respect.

Please, fix this bug because it is “annoying” to have to change this so many times a day.

Thank you in advance,
Dan

Hi,

this is not a BUG, it´s a feature 🙂

Based on your location, Fiverr “tries” as most webpages, to offer you the local version of the webpage.

For sure there is a cookie set it this progress, if you delete it, or “overwrite” it by manually selecting your preferred Fiverr language version, the “problem” is solved.

As this is, from the developers point of view, not a bug, but a feature (yeah old but still good developers running gag 🙂 there won´t be changes at all in that behaviour!

Cheers!

Thank you for your response.

It doesn’t “offer” it “forces” someone to see Fiverr in the region language. I feel sorry for US military stationed in other countries.

I am serious… it doesn’t even ask me anymore and it gets REALLY annoying having to change it every time.

Hi,

well imo it is really a minor issue and as said before, once the cookie is set, the “issue” is solved until you open again a link to another Fiverr language subdomain.

And the US military forces are really a very very very small interest group, compared with the rest of the world population 😉

Oh, I made a separate topic about this, sorry. But it’s definitely not a feature and a glitch at this stage. Very annoying and a real productivity killer. It’s very specific to us though (also living in Spain), so I don’t have high hopes that it’ll get fixed anytime soon.

English language

English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now a global lingua franca. Named after the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes that migrated to England, it ultimately derives its name from the Anglia (Angeln) peninsula in the Baltic Sea. It is closely related to the Frisian languages, but its vocabulary has been significantly influenced by other Germanic languages, particularly Norse (a North Germanic language), as well as by Latin and Romance lang Engli...

Actually, I’m sorry but it would be pretty much as bad for me. It’s just the hassle of changing it every single time I load the site.

I used to get an email notification, click on the link and just start typing a response. Now I have to change the language, plus the currency!

I received a solution a few hours ago and it seems that it is working perfect. The same way I complaint, I also take my time to say “thank you”.
On the other hand I need to point out that babibalubi was COMPLETELY wrong with his “analysis” in this whole situation.

Hi,

I am writing you in regards to feedback you provided in a recent customer satisfaction survey. Your comments and feedback are very important.

You wrote “Please fix your language bug. Yes, I live in Spain. No, I do NOT want my fiverr in spanish. Thank you!”.

We’ve been going through a lot of changes with our multiple language sites. Fiverr is not supposed to work this way now. You should have a choice. Please try clearing your cache/cookies if you know how. For more information, see: http://support.fiverr.com/hc/en-us/articles/204039726-Is-Fiverr-Offered-in-Different-Languages-
If you have any other issues, please let me know.

Thanks and Good Luck,
Ben, Fiverr-Care

Hi,

in my first answer in this thread I wrote:

“For sure there is a cookie set it this progress, if you delete it, or “overwrite” it by manually selecting your preferred Fiverr language version, the “problem” is solved.”

In my opinion this is exactly the same as customer service wrote you now 🙂

Cheers
