    Hello Sandy,

    Well if you've changed your virtual location via VPN it's possible that a requested website is offered in another language. This is a regular behavior as many websites are checking the IP address and offering a suitable website to offer a native experience. 

    Example:

    Physical location --> Germany --> Requested website offers German content

    Virtual location --> Spain -- Requested website offers Spanish content even when you're physically located in Germany

    So, this is the way how a VPN connection works and is partly made for.

    Best,

    My VPN says 'Nearest Location' I'm in California, it should not lead to a foreign nation.
