Changing language on ios app without changing phone language

Recommended Posts


I have a bit of an odd question. My telephone is in French, but for a variety of reasons I need to use the app in English. I downloaded the app before logging in through a browser; in the browser I was able to change the language to English without issue, but the app remains in French, and I cannot find a way within the app to change its language. Surely there must be a way to change the app language without changing the entire phone's language; how can I do so?

Many thanks!

In iOS it is pretty standard that apps „borrow“ the language settings from the OS. Usually resources like dictionary, spell checker etc. are only installed for the own language, and sometimes a selected few others.

 On the web the language is controlled by a cookie, the resources are on the web server. The cookie tells the server what content it should deliver.
